Celebrating Guild Wars' 8th anniversary

Today is Guild Wars' eighth anniversary. Depending on which tradition you follow, I should be getting the game either bronze, salt, linens, or lace as a gift. Since I don't happen to have any of those handy, I'd like to reflect upon the rich life that Guild Wars has led so far. The game didn't...

Jukebox Heroes: Guild Wars Factions' soundtrack

East Asian-themed music in MMOs is something that I generally welcome. Even if the title isn't an Asian MMO, chances are that sooner or later developers like to work an Eastern zone, class, or city into the game -- and with that comes a specific sound.

Leaderboard: Ninja vs. pirate

Theirs is a rivalry born not from historical conflict but from bored nerds eating cheap pizza and debating hypothetical grudge matches. Well done, nerds -- now the entire world thinks that you can have pirates and you can have ninjas, but you cannot have both without an epic beatdown. Everyone...

The Game Archaeologist looks at Guild Wars Utopia

The Perfect Ten: Sequelitis

As a long-time movie buff, I've always been fascinated by sequels. I know, they have a terrible reputation and everyone gets this face like he's digesting a porcupine when discussing them, but there's something fun about them as well. I think we always want a good story to continue, to see what...

One Shots: Light as a feather

MMO bugs and glitches can be funny in most cases and inconvenient in others. Some can even provide a unique perspective here and there. Today's One Shots comes to us from Mawgleah, who took an unintentional step onto, well, nothing while playing some Guild Wars: Walking on air at Harvest Temple...

The Daily Grind: What's your favorite MMO box art?

Digital downloads are all the rage these days, but surely I'm not the only one on a foolish quest to continue cluttering the shelves of my game room with cardboard -- or in some cases, metal -- boxes. Prior to Steam, D2D, and the anti-retail revolution, you probably had a favorite game box or two,...
