Guild Wars 2

Developed by ArenaNet

Arena.net just let loose Guild Wars 2 for free for everyone. This is totally awesome, but why? PCGamer recently asked and I thought the response was interesting.

""We believe that if people love Guild wars 2, they’re gonna buy the expansion pack," O'Brien says when I ask why ArenaNet is doing this. "The expansion pack is such a great value. There’s so much content, not only in the expansion pack but in all the free updates that will come past that." While Guild Wars 2 is now free, it won't receive future content updates—including the newly announced raids. Those are earmarked for Heart of Thorns, which will essentially become the live version of the game"

Hello guys! I've been playing some more guild wars 2 and became interested in collecting the mini pet items that are in the game. My current collection is shown above. I have 6 of the 54 mini pets that are in the game. My current ones are:

Hylek Nahualli(Fine)
Seraph Heavy Guard(Fine)
Vampire Bat(Rare)
Devourer(Fine)
Frost Troll(Masterwork)
Dredge Excavator(Fine)

I'm curious how many of you actually collect these mini pets. If you do collect them, feel free to list yours. Also, if you see any pets that you would like to trade for, go ahead and ask. Just make sure you have a good deal in mind.

On a side note, if any of you are looking for some people to play with, I am going... Read All

What can I say about this game, except for the fact that I haven't stopped playing it. Its such a fun and addicting game. It's by far the best mmorpg that I've ever played in my life. The PvE is exciting, the PvP is extremely well made, the world events are challenging and the main story is very interesting.

Right now, if I had to recommend one game to the entire world, it would be this. I am so glad I bought this game. I've had so much fun with it.

Did I mention that it also looks AMAZING? The world is so greatly developed. They encourage exploration and wandering around with things called vistas, which are usually hard to reach places that are high up and require a bit... Read All


Oh Guild Wars 2, it has been a long beta weekend. Such a laggy weekend indeed! With the pre-purchase (notice I didn't say pre-order) of GW2 it gave us access to a beta weekend starting on Friday and ending Sunday. I made preparations with some old gaming friends and jumped in this weekend. I hope you enjoy my thoughts.

First off, the game is beautiful. NCSoft has a stellar art department and their stylized art direction is consistent throughout the game thus far. Most quests have an audible cutscene to depict the situation at hand. Definitely blows reading a wall of text out of the water.

Each race has its own starting area and they feel very different. Even though I... Read All
