Guild Wars 2 Open Beta Weekend Overview

There are those who eagerly anti­cip­ate online gam­ing events. And then there’s the rest of the world. I kinda fall into the first cat­egory. This past week­end I par­ti­cip­ated in such an event — the first Guild Wars 2 open beta test. Basic­ally it was two and a half days of fresh Guild Wars good­ness! But first […]

Almost bought this, and now it’s free!

Valve has just removed pri­cing from Team Fort­ress 2 — the sem­in­al multi-play­er first-per­­son shoot­er — in Steam, Valve’s online game dis­tri­bu­tion net­work. Pre­vi­ously I’d been a Bat­tle­field Her­oes fan, but got busy and had little time for it. Now, with TF2 being free, and hav­ing a bit more time avail­able, I may just give […]

Oh, and the game can integ­rate with your Twit­ter account, extend­ing the game­play into the Social Media world. While I down­load the app and start play­ing (for […]

A Tale of Two RPGs

Two cool Fantasy Role Play­ing Games have caught my atten­tion lately on my iPad; The Battle for Wesnoth and Battle­heart. Yes, they’re both RPGs, but are so dis­sim­il­ar in their approach and exe­cu­tion that they’re not really tread­ing in each other’s space, so to speak. Here’s why… It’s Big The Battle for Wesnoth (which I’ll […]
