GamesCom 2011: Link collection for GW2

With PAX around the corner, I wanted to do a collection of links with interviews, videos, pictures, etc. from GamesCom. Of course, all GW2-related. :) Some of them were posted on German websites but the interviews are in English. So maybe you don't know all of those links already. Overall, I think it would be … Continue reading GamesCom 2011: Link collection for GW2

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (August 24) – GW2GC edition

Those who know me say that I'm often quite critical and can be overly harsh. So enjoy the following while you can because this'll most likely be a rare entry full of fangirlism. ;) After Warhammer Online and its hype leading up to the release of the game, I have become quite skeptical and even … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (August 24) – GW2GC edition

Wartower.de’s interview with Martin Kerstein (from GamesCom 2011)

Wartower.de, a German Guild Wars fansite, published an interview from al'Ellisande with Martin Kerstein, who's the German community manager of ArenaNet. The topic was, of course, Guild Wars 2. As it's in German, I thought I'd offer a short English translation (not literally but so you get the gist). Whenever you see (( )), that's … Continue reading Wartower.de’s interview with Martin Kerstein (from GamesCom 2011)

Impressions from GamesCom 2011

I want to write more about Lord of the Rings Online and Guild Wars 2 later. But for now, I present you my impressions of GamesCom 2011 along with several pictures we've taken. We went there twice, on Thursday and Saturday. Thursday was already full but Saturday was crowded and hot. I didn't feel too … Continue reading Impressions from GamesCom 2011

We're in the process of uploading our GW2 videos. Apologies for the spam to all those who already know about it because they're following me on Twitter and G+. ;) You can find all videos here: http://www.youtube.com/user/NerdyBookahs All in all, we have about 15 videos. Give or take a bit. They all range from a … Continue reading GamesCom 2011 Part 2

GamesCom 2011 – Part 1

Semi-successful day at GamesCom today. 40 minutes for the GW2 demo that soooo many people want to play is just too long. We had about 6 or 7 people in front of us. Take that x 40 minutes. O.o No way! Instead, we filmed others playing Guild Wars 2 (PvP mostly as we could stand … Continue reading GamesCom 2011 – Part 1

GamesCom 2011 – only… a few more days! ;)

We already know that Sylvari will be playable at GamesCom. So far, this was more or less the only thing I was concerned about (Guild Wars 2, that is, not necessarily the Sylvari). But now I wonder: What about the other games I'm interested in? More importantly: What about LotRO? They will release their next … Continue reading GamesCom 2011 – only… a few more days! ;)
