GW2 New Lion's Arch

New Lion’s Arch

Can you believe that after all the screenshot galleries I've made for Lion's Arch in its various stages, I have never made one of the rebuild town? You can see the original Lion's Arch in this post (from April 2012). About two years later, in February 2014, I made a second gallery because I felt … Continue reading New Lion’s Arch

Lake Doric in Kryta

I admit, it does feel a bit like cheating when I'm filling my picture-count for IntPiPoMo with a blog post like this. But when I thought about what kind of blog posts I could do with pictures (other than the regular ones as I always include at least one picture with each blog post), this … Continue reading Lake Doric in Kryta

Participating in IntPiPoMo 2018

Some of you may know that years ago, I used to participate in NaNoWriMo. I even won two times in a row and missed the goal by 4k words in another year. Not because I wasn't up to it, but because I'd gotten a high fever the last day and despite trying to type on … Continue reading Participating in IntPiPoMo 2018

Goodbye, Wildstar

It did not come as a surprise when I saw that Wildstar is shutting down - and the developer studio, Carbine, as well. Even though at the beginning of the year, the statement had been that Wildstar would be supported for the foreseeable future. It seemed as if the game has been at least in … Continue reading Goodbye, Wildstar

Defiance 2050

Summer of MMOs: Rift, Defiance, Guild Wars 2

My little rogue in Rift (Prime) is still little. Well, she is a dwarf, but she still hasn't reached the level cap yet. Ember Isle has been released on Prime and since I never experienced this region when the level cap was at 50, I would actually really like to make it there. But levelling … Continue reading Summer of MMOs: Rift, Defiance, Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire – First Impressions (NO story spoilers!)

Just as indicated in the subject: I am not going to write about the story here. I, myself, am not far in yet and I certainly wouldn't want to take away any content for my readers either. So instead, I am going to give you a few impressions I have gotten without talking about the … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire – First Impressions (NO story spoilers!)

GW2: The beginning… – Looking back 4 years (Blaugust Post 17)

Guild Wars 2's fourth anniversary is coming up in a couple of days. The headstart began on August 25, 2012. Gaile asked for screenshots from the launch weekend on the official forum and I figured this is a great opportunity to get nostalgic here in this blog as well! I still clearly remember getting up … Continue reading GW2: The beginning… – Looking back 4 years (Blaugust Post 17)

The Daily Post: Carefree (in MMOs)

WordPress.com has a daily prompt consisting of one word to give you an idea what to blog about. I will definitely not do this daily, but I do take a look at the prompts regularly. Today's daily prompt word is "Carefree". When I hear this word, I immediately get some mental images and I thought … Continue reading The Daily Post: Carefree (in MMOs)

NBI 2016: Screenshot prompt “The New”

A prompt to make a blog post with screenshots? I'm in! So, this is part of the "Newbie Blogger Initiative". You can find more information on what the Newbie Blogger Initiative is in a previous post of mine (as well as in the other posts I'm linking to there). But let's get to the prompt … Continue reading NBI 2016: Screenshot prompt “The New”

Kessex Hills in Kryta

It has been too long since I made the last post for my Guild Wars 2 screenshot gallery. In the meantime, ArenaNet finally let us use the first person view! Additionally, we can now also glide in Tyria. I did not use the gliding too often for these screenshots, but not having to type "/sleep" … Continue reading Kessex Hills in Kryta
