Win 1 of 3 Radar Corgi codes

Rift Radar Corgi companion and Racing snail mount

(Update: All codes are gone!)

We still have three codes for Radar Corgi companions for Rift left from our September code stash. Those poor little guys are looking for a loving home!

These codes will expire on Monday, October 3. As that is less than a week away, we’re having a “more casual” giveaway with fewer rules: It’s “first come, first serve. One code per person only.”

You only need to leave a comment saying that you want that radar corgi companion (so we know that it’s a legitimate person and not a regular spam comment :p). Once those three codes are gone (or it’s October 3), the giveaway will be closed… obviously, since there are no codes left then. ;)

Finally got my Opie!

If you pre-purchased the expansion when Trion announced it and collected the Starfall Prophecy tokens by logging on every day (which fortunately, I was able to do), then you should have 50 of these tickets today and can get your Opie mount!

I had seen pictures of the mount, but I never noticed that it shrinks you and that it’s actually tiny. Very cute! I haven’t tried out the other – functional – part of Opie yet. It’s not just a mount, it can help with collecting artifacts. It can jump very high making it easier to reach certain places. There was a concern that Trion would put in artifacts that are otherwise impossible to reach, but they promised they won’t do that. Additionally, Opie needs to be fed with pellets in order to be able to use these abilities and they will not drop too often.

In other words, I can just enjoy my new Opie mount and being tinier than usual (being a dwarven lady).

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (September 2016)

Guild Wars 2 Bookahneer's GeekwatchFirst of all, we have Rift and some tiny news about its upcoming expansion “Starfall Prophecy”. We still do not have a date for the expansion’s launch, unfortunately. I speculated about the time range before, but other than that, it’s all guessing. Of course, us players are getting impatient as we would love to hop into the new content right away! But the latest post about it was a definite “no launch date yet”. However, we now know that there will be a beta (since Trion usually does these with Rift, it was to be expected, but confirmation is still nice!) and that news about beta will come “well before we announce a date”.

Thankfully, Guild Wars 2 will launch its next piece of content update “Rising Flames” next Tuesday, so I won’t have to starve for too long with nothing to do (totally ignoring the fact I also just got World of Warcraft’s Legion… :p). I am not hyped as with Guild Wars 2, I strongly prefer not having any expectations and then just enjoying what’s given to me. However, I like that there will be a new map again!

Atlas Reactor Charr Freelancer Rask

Last piece of news from me but most exciting: Atlas Reactor just got a launch date! The game will officially release on October 5. From everything I have seen and experienced, I can tell you that I am confident that this game is ready for release! But you do not need to trust my words here, as you can hop into the game for free already (note that there will be a wipe prior to release!). And from September 15 (wait – that’s today I just realized) until September 25 the game will be in open beta and you will get everything unlocked! The game will be free to play when it launches but certain things are locked until you pay a one-time fee (all heroes, called freelancers here, will be unlocked then, for example).

“Bookahneer’s Geekwatch” is the place where we take a look at all those little pieces of gaming news that have attracted our interest and/or talk about what’s recently been in the spotlight of other fansites.

Rift September Giveaway: Racing Snails and Radar Corgis

This giveaway is closed. We’ll send the codes to the winners soon (meaning: In the next one or two days. Sorry for the delay!)

Another month, another chance for you to win some awesome corgis and snails! Since we are in the Trion Worlds Creator Program, we are getting codes for Rift on a regular basis.

In total, we are giving away 10 Racing Snails mounts as well as 10 Radar Corgi companions! Be sure to read the “Rules and Important Notes” page before participating. We put all rules over there as I am a bit tired of repeating myself every single giveaway. The general rules usually don’t change. Still, even if you participated before, do go to the page and read the rules since there is one statement listed in there that you need to put in the comment field in order to be eligible to win here!
