Valhalla Hills: Impressions from the outside (Blaugust Day 30)

Just a quick warning: I will start with Valhalla Hills and detour to Cultures in the end. :p But there is a very good reason for this: The developers of Valhalla Hills are "Funatics". The very same Funatics that made the Cultures series. There is only a German wikipedia article, but the table of the games … Continue reading Valhalla Hills: Impressions from the outside (Blaugust Day 30)

You may remember that we have already written a report on ArenaNet's booth last year, so of course, we're going to write another one this year. Last year, we went to GamesCom on two days, Thursday and Saturday, which means that our experiences and observations came from two different days.

Will ArenaNet kill international guilds with Guild Wars 2?

That's a question that came up today on Twitter. As you all probably know, Twitter isn't the best place to talk about or muse such things because of its limited amount of letters that can be sent with each tweet.
