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)
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)
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”
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
As I previously said, Haffle's "Screenshots Of The Year 2015" post inspired me to do something like this myself. Instead of going by game, I will try to go through the year by months. January 2015 was all about the Guild Wars 2 stencil contest that ArenaNet had hosted together with fansites - and, of … Continue reading 2015 in screenshots
Shade's Eve, Wildstar's version of Halloween, started earlier this week. It features a new little instance and some quests in the two factions' main cities. I did try the instance, but eventually gave up. I assume it's a mix of different things: It seems to be more difficult for characters who are not at maximum … Continue reading Halloween in Wildstar
Guild Wars 2 has a gorgeous game world and I am sure quite a lot of people agree with me here. I started the screenshot gallery even before the game had officially released. Back then, it was mostly the races' capitals and Lion's Arch. A few days ago, Ten Ton Hammer started a little competition … Continue reading The beauty of Guild Wars 2 – Blaugust Day 3
First of all, this was a tough decision and we actually did have to use random.org to choose the winner, as two pictures had gotten the same amount of points from us (yes, we used a point system for judging. :p). Before we get to places 1 to 3, however, here's something else newsworthy: We … Continue reading Announcing the winners of our giveaway…
(Update July 25, 2015: This giveaway is now closed. We will announce the winners in our blog soon!) (Update July 20, 2015: I am SO sorry. I forgot that gem codes are region-locked and the 1200 gems are EU-only. The t-shirts, however, can be won by everybody. Should a US player win 1st prize, we … Continue reading Your chance to win 1200 gems: Lion’s Arch Screenshot Contest!
On March 12, 2011, we started this very blog here. I did not think that we would still be around 4 years later. I also did not think that the content of the blog would stay this close to its original roots. :p 4 years ago, we started as "Nerdy Bookahs and their travel guide". … Continue reading 4 years of Nerdy Bookahs!
