Guild Wars 2

August 28th, 2012: Guild Wars 2 is coming.  Hard to believe that Tyria will become 200+ years old in the wink of an eye.

I meant to post my first impressions of the last Beta Weekend Event, but sadly I had limited playtime due to real life obligations.  Not to worry, though, I won’t bore you with the details.  My previous post has the 1 1/2-hour video if that’s your cup of tea.

Truly, though, even though my total playtime for that weekend was very short (roughly 2 1/2, 3 hours), I enjoyed myself in Guild Wars 2.  It felt like I was coming home of sorts.  The awesome music was reminding me of good ol’ times in pre-Searing Ascalon.  It was almost like I”d never left.  …Except for being level 1 again.

I will keep my first impressions to this bare minimum since it was so short, but I was really impressed for what little time I played.  I’ll be glad when it’s released and I can get back into that world again, provided I have the time.


After dealing with YouTube snafu after YouTube snafu, they finally put the whole video up. All 1 1/2 hours of it, altogether. Look long enough too. It’s embedded below for your viewing pleasure.

Hey folks!

A live stream is about to occur of epic proportions.  You are about to enter Tyria through the eyes… of the Creative n00b.

This live stream will take you through several character creation options in Guild Wars 2 (as I’m one of those who picks through every little detail when making a first toon :-P), and the first little bit of PVE gameplay.

All of this stuff may have already been done before, but there’s still a sense of wonder from seeing how another person did things.

You can find the live stream at my Twitch.TV page:

I’ll try to embed it below, but if it doesn’t work, just follow the link above.  Please note, I will NOT have chat open!  I mean no offense by it, just…I’m not a good multitasker.

EDIT: Live stream is over! Recorded video is being uploaded to YouTube as we speak.  The Twitch.TV video can be found here:

If this comes out, it will be the Best. Movie. Ever.


Whether this was timed perfectly with E3 or not, this looks amazing! Wreck-It Ralph is an upcoming CG animated movie from Disney, following the life of a video game character as he tries to become a “good guy” in the video game world. There are plenty of cameos from classic video game characters, so make sure you watch the trailer to catch them all!

Will you be watching this when it hits theaters in November? I know I will!

This is a post to see if I’m losing my sanity, or if WordPress and Tumblr are being naughty.

Not the good kind of naughty, but the bad kind.

You know, the kind of naughty that makes you want to slap– wait, that could apply to either one.

The kind of naughty that needs to be fixed.  Yeah, that’s it.

I’m mainly putting this page up as a second welcome.  I’ve tried to keep up this WordPress blog for almost three months now, and while I know I haven’t had a lot of  visitors, it’s been very therapeutic to write again.

I considered recently making a Tumblr blog, since their network was more socially engineered; but I honestly didn’t want to lose the customization and tools that I have with WordPress.

Now that I can blog in both fields, though, makes me a happy camper.  I can keep this blog updated and tweaked to my heart’s content, and also keep a “second home,” so to speak, on Tumblr to grab more people’s attention.

And now that I have your attention….welcome.  That is all.

TL;DR: I have two homes.

I got a beta key.

Yeah, that’s right, I won a beta key from PC Gamer.  I don’t think I can thank PC Gamer enough.  Much love.

No, that doesn’t mean I’m going to snooze on it like I did The Secret World beta. >.>

Yes, that does mean I might be putting off some homework. <.<

Stay tuned; over the weekend, I’ll live stream as much as I can (I’ll at least put the first hour of gameplay up as well as a glimpse of character creation).

Sorry for the lack of updates, all of my followers.  Yes, all two of you.  Or maybe three; I think I have a floater.

Re-entering college has kept me busy.  I haven’t played anything in weeks aside from Ticket to Ride Pocket and Phase 10 on my phone.  Yeah, I know, exciting, right?

Hopefully I’ll have something new to write about in the next few weeks other than cyberethics and digital logic design.  I’m sure no one wants to read about that.

In the meantime, though, go check out the Humble Bundle V!  Psychonauts alone is worth as much as you can give, but adding Bastion in?  That’s an absolutely amazing deal.  Plus it’s great knowing that you’re helping out a worthwhile cause, plus great developers get paid.
