Guild Wars 2 will be hosting an extended weekend test (from 15th to 18th) for friends of Guild Wars 2 players along with their new upcoming patch The lost shores.
Since I'm one of those people and none of my other friends want to play Guild Wars 2 I decided to give three lucky people who reply in this blog post a chance to experience the game for themselves.
To have a chance to win the invite you need to post your e-mail under the comments and I will select three lucky winners who will receive their invite on that e-mail!
Guild Wars 2, a game that looked like it will change the way MMO's are played and for some people out there regarded as the "WoW killer" is facing yet another big problem, besides a major botting issue, WvW imbalance and lack of content for maxed-out players. This time it's not on the front lines of in-game activities or game content, it's behind the scenes on the official game forum.
We all know, that every game has it's problems and is far from pleasing all the gamers that play the game to the fullest. The game forum should be the place for such players to share their opinions and thoughts with the rest, perhaps equally thinking community members.
Guild Wars 2 is one of such games, with problems in-game that need urgent developer attention and adjustment. But Guild Wars 2 is also a game where forum moderators censor most if not all negative feedback on the game forum. I agree that some sort of limitation of certain threads must be in place, but what is currently happening on...
I've been testing out the rewards given for opening the Black Lion Chest in Guild Wars 2.
The outcome was, well, surprising.
For many gamers out there, the 25th of August was a day marked down as the release date for Guild Wars 2, of course if you'd already purchased the game. As the day came closer and closer ArenaNet, the company behind the game hosted many stress tests to try and finalize and polish the game before the release. Everything was looking well, apart for some optimization issues which would and will probably be worked out within the next week or so.
But come release day (3 day headstart) the game seems far from ready. Currently 9 hours after official release the game is still not accessible to most of the players.
There was a patch issued but unfortunately for some connection error reasons, customers cannot download it, as the game's launcher won't connect to their servers. Patching in previous beta weekends and stress tests was flawless.
This launch day drama is nothing new to the online gaming world, where just a few months back we saw Diablo 3 have a terrible release day and a few da...

Over the last weekend ArenaNet hosted the last beta weekend test for their upcoming mmorpg Guild Wars 2. And since I've played all the previous weekend tests I decided to take some time off other things and play the game again. Since ArenaNet wiped all the characters from previous tests I decided to roll with a Ranger this time, having played Elementalist and Warrior in the previous beta weekends.
Here are some videos I've made during this beta test:
World boss event which was awesome!
An event boss I stumbled upon when I was exploring the wonderful world of Tyria. Some people had a hard time dealing with this fire breathing monster. ...
Blizzard has been sending out e-mails to former subscribers and to players who never actually played the game but somehow got on the mailing list or have been invited by a "friend" they never heard of. A smell of desperation is in the air, although it has been reported that World of Warcraft stopped losing subscribers in the past few months.
Apparently, people who will decide to come back to World of Warcraft, will receive a free upgrade to Cataclysm and a character boosted to level 80.
Diablo 3 EU servers have been down for about a full day now, since Blizzard set them unavailable due to maintenance yesterday.
Blizzard has not yet addressed this issue nor the new Error 33 message that people are receiving when trying to log in.
Maybe this new error message will inspire more websites like Error37.com.
Official Diablo 3 forums are on fire with hordes of unhappy customers and some even state Blizzard is deleting threads about refunds and compensation.
Some rumours and hints have started to spread around the internet about the specs the new Playstation 4 codenamed Orbis will have.
The latest sources say that the console will be powered by an AMD A8 3850 (Quad-Core 2.9 Ghz 4MB L3) CPU and a AMD Radeon HD 7670 along with 4 GB of RAM.
Note that these are only rumours and nothing has been confirmed yet, and I am a bit sceptical about the CPU myself, since it's a CPU+GPU product, that already houses a HD 6550. But who knows.
I am really excited to see what SONY will put in their new console, and ofcourse what price will they put on their new product
