  • Transgender Character Now in Lion's Arch

    As part of the Lion's Arch makeover in Guild Wars 2, a new transgender NPC has joined the city's ranks. Aid Worker Sya, she was formerly known as Symon. She chose to embrace her true nature after losing all that she had in the attacks on Lion's Arch. While not a major NPC, she is a welcome addition to the game.

  • Pre-Order Mayhem

    It seemed like an eternity as we all sat and waited for the announcement of an expansion to Guild Wars 2, and when it came it was like a breath of fresh air. That is until the next day when we began our wait to pre-order the expansion. That has come, and rather than cheers, you will mostly hear an outrage from players all over the forum. Are players feeling too entitled, or has ArenaNet marred what should have been a good day?

  • Heart of Thorns Gives Us Back Our Voice

    Some of the greatest heroes in video games have been silent, letting their actions speak for them. Those days are mostly gone now, as a player's character can now chime in on a conversation. Guild Wars 2's Living World stepped away from the cut scene conversations, and placed them in game, but our characters stopped talking due to technical limitations. That's changing with the expansion, as Heart of Thorns will give us our voices back!

    This week, Jason puts forth the question of whether we'll ever see new dungeons in Guild Wars 2, or even if there's a point to ArenaNet making more of them. Read on for Jason's full thoughts on the touchy subject.

  • The Beta Was Eventful

    Quests have always been a staple for MMOs, and while they do make an appearance in Guild Wars 2, it's the events that will steer most of your adventuring.
