Ah yes, April 1st is on its way along with the requisite fun and games that developers love to pump out. Our team had a great opportunity to check out the forthcoming April Guild Wars 2 update and it's definitely something you won't want to miss. Read our report and then leave your thoughts in the comments.

If you started playing games on the original NES, or even in the arcades of ancient times (or maybe you just loved the movie Wreck-It Ralph), then you are going to love playing Super Adventure Box.  The experience throws you in a 3D world, but with a blocky 8 bit feel.  While your character remains in their great modern look, NPCs look like those you would find in a village of an old RPG.  You could really compare it to Minecraft, but with a different style.

Read more of David North's Guild Wars 2: 8-Bit Madness.


I love the 8 bit look.

Did there really need to be 2 news story topics on this?


I guess MMORPG.com dont delete duplicate topics when they themselves make them.

These aren't forum posts, they're featured articles from separate authors. But nice jab for the sake of making one. ;)

SERIOUSLY!:p

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

The fact that this only lasts until end of April is just mind-boggingly stupid! :(

What's truly mind-boggling is that people will find something to complain about even when something unquestionably awesome occurs.

Hey look a joke update that is better then any update they have ever added in game! What a joke!

 

Haha kidding, seriously though, its pretty cool update. The game might be over-rated and a meh game in my book, but I got to give it to them for doing a cool April Fools update, treating it more like a holiday then just a single day prank.

This is one of the funnest things I have done in a while even tho I soloed it to the next area past the frog king which was awesome. Its like playing an 8-bit game in 3-D.


To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

i couldnt believe the 8 bit bunnies and toads comin out of the box.. so damn cute and funny. but their interrupts are annoying as hell.

their recent updates have made the game far more interesting.. good job gw2. the best $ spent on any game.

not a big fan of 8bit -maybe couse i actually grew up with it- not a Zelda generation either, perhaps if it were frogger or kaboom-or hedgehog.  but what they have done is pure genious for the gamers of all ages!!

Maybe if you read more about this APRIL FOOLS patch, you would get the fact that is supposed to fun and silly at the same time. It wouldn't make sense to do this at the same resolution that they do the normal game at - it would defeat the purpose.

they said if they get positive feedback they will keep working on this, and other things that are wholly unique like this, there is a very small team that designed this for us and took a chance on it. if people enjoy it they will develop more and more maps and more skins etc

To busy playing GW2 to post much around here... *shrug*

Funny stuff, really funny stuff. I hope I won't be bored out of my mind on it within a week or so though, and if I am then there's still the rest of the game. It's been great fun so far though.
