  • Returning to Tyria with Heart of Thorns at PAX East

    It's been a while since I played Guild Wars 2. Fortunately, ArenaNet was showing off the upcoming expansion, Heart of Thorns, at this year's PAX East, and I can't really think of a better way to re-introduce myself to the game than to check out the latest and greatest ArenaNet has to offer.

  • Update that Includes First Person Camera Delayed

    The next Guild Wars 2 update slated for deployment today, March 10th, has been delayed. Players will have to wait a bit longer for the first person camera that is in QA for an indeterminate amount of time to assess its readiness for live servers. At this point, ArenaNet does not have a specific date when the update will be released but has promised to keep the community informed.

  • Playing Heart of Thorns is Like Coming Home

    It's no secret I'm a fan of ArenaNet's Guild Wars 2. But, like many of you, I've been dying for something meatier to chew on than the Living World for some time now. There seem to be so many features and additions we've all be waiting for ages to see added. With Heart of Thorns, the first full expansion to Guild Wars 2, ArenaNet seems poised to offer us all those things and more.

  • The Boss is Boss

    Boss fights are supposed to bring a challenge to players, putting their skill and patience to the ultimate test! Without them, there would never be a truly worthy foe to stand between the players, and their goals. Guild Wars 2 has featured some amazing bosses thanks to their design, but some mechanics prevent these types of encounters from feeling as epic as a boss fight should be.
