Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (December 15, 2014)

Guild Wars 2 Bookahneer's GeekwatchWelcome to today’s Bookahneer’s Geekwatch! The place about miscellaneous interesting gaming news.

I am mainly using this column – and with it, this charming asura you can see on the left – to announce that the winners of our first week’s giveaway have been chosen. Once again, congratulations to Wedge and Kalabajooie!

Don’t forget that week 2 is still going on! If you want to own a mini llama, here is your chance to win one of the two we are giving away! Also, here is a hint: We actually have three codes… one is… waiting for a special moment. ;) Speaking of hints: I added two more to the llama giveaway. Here is the full text:

This NPC has blonde hair.
Okay, maybe it’s fur.
And not all of the fur is blonde.
There is some white added into the mix.
This NPC was a Tribune once in the Blood Legion.

And the German translation (because I don’t have the time to translate this very article here):

Dieser NPC hat blondes Haar.
Okay, vielleicht ist es Fell.
Und nicht das komplette Fell ist blond.
Weiß ist auch dabei.
Dieser NPC war einmal Tribun bei der Blut-Legion.

Just remember: Leave a comment on the actual giveaway’s post and give us the name of the NPC (English OR German) in order to enter!

Week 3 will be starting tomorrow, so check back here for a chance to win some more stuff (no, no mini llama this week…).

And last but not least, we are also participating as a host for Guild Wars 2’s Window Decoration Contest. Check our blog post for more information and don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you’ve got any questions about this contest!

We have also just recently changed the layout and the colour scheme of this blog a bit. I have to admit, I got bored with the dark red background and the blog text being squished in between two sidebars. I do, however, love having so much space on the sidebars, so you can now find both of them on the right. We will be working on making it actually look a bit better… so be patient if you don’t like the look with the two sidebars right now. I promise it will look better soon. ;)

On personal gaming news: I have finally hit level 65 with Meffanda, my main character in Rift!

Level 65 with Meffanda

I’m still in love with that game. If only the combat wasn’t so old-fashioned. Although movement is important, I just miss my dodge rolls from GW2… or double-jumps like you can do in Trove (well okay, I think my character is up to 10 jumps in a row now).
