Latest Headlines for Guild Wars 2

  • The Gathering Storm

    Quiet week, huh? So, yeah, there was a tiny bit of shouting this week after an interview with some members of the Guild Wars 2 team from Gamescom went up on teh Intrawebz. Before I get into analyzing what was discussed, let's talk a little bit about the interview itself.

  • Martin Kerstein & Kate Welch Leave ArenaNet

    Over the past weekend, a pair of ArenaNet team members, Martin Kerstein and Kate Welch, announced they are leaving the company in what appears to be an abrupt fashion. Both cite great times working with the Guild Wars 2 team and community. Kerstein has been instrumental in the community and will seek time to 'decompress' before looking for new opportunities. Welch worked on the game's UI and will also take time to rest and renew.

  • Changes Ahead for WvW

    Like many MMOs out there, Guild Wars 2 focuses on the PvE experience because most players want to explore new worlds and accomplish amazing feats that they normally couldn't in real life. That's why most games still offer a PvP experience. Often these players can feel left out, because the PvP related updates are few and far between. But in a way, that's what makes it so exciting! September is going to be huge for the PvP community!

  • Season 2 is Worth Returning to Tyria

    MMOs typically offer a huge amount of content compared to games in other genres. But eventually players experience everything a game world has to offer, which leads to expansions. ArenaNet has tried a new method to add some content to expand the story of the game, known as the Living World. Season 2 has now gone through 3 episodes, and it seems the future of Guild Wars 2 looks pretty promising, but not without a few hiccups.

  • Can GW2 Serve As the Template For The Future of MMOs?

    Bill Murphy's recent article on ArcheAge's major flaw - that it focuses too much on themepark questing when there's so much more to the game - echoes sentiments I had about the game during my time in alpha. The first comment, from DMKano, raises the perfectly valid point that MMO players have grown so accustomed to seeing "!" over NPCs' heads that there's no other way to "steer" players, especially new players through the early - and some would say "all" - parts of the game.

  • The Importance of the Guild Hall

    Most players in an MMO band together to form guilds. Members of a guild can call upon one another for help, or to join in on a tough dungeon. I've made a lot of friends playing in guilds over the years, in several different MMOs. There's one game that really made the guild experience feel important, and that was the original Guild Wars, which had a nice feature called the guild hall... a feature that Guild Wars 2 is sadly missing.

  • The Neverending Story (Journal)

    I'll admit to not being entirely on board with the new-fangled story Journal as it was posted on the Guild Wars 2 site a month ago. "Repeatable" was the keyword that most of us latched onto, and there was stuff about "no pounding-signpost-grinding" and "challenge" in there, but I figured I'd wait until it all went live before getting too pumped up about anything.
