Nike Kinect Training

So you're thinking.. what the hell is an article on Nike Kinect Training doing here amidst what has become pretty much an entirely Guild Wars 2 blog!  Well it's still a game, technically, and it's something I'm doing.  And as I've spent no small amount of time trying out various exercise games and programs, thought I'd write up some comments on why I've settled on this one.

Guild Wars 2 Casual 80 - Runes & Trinkets

So in my previous casual 80 article, I talked about evaluating your options for getting your first full set of exotic armor, and setting some goals based on that.  Once you get your armor, well then what?  Well that leaves upgrading your armor, filling out your trinkets, and getting your hands on some sweet weapons.  I'll save weapons for yet another post, and this morning we'll talk a bit about filling out your trinkets and selecting armor upgrades.

Guild Wars 2 - Gettin' Your Daily On

So in the most recent round of patches at the end of January, ArenaNet introduced some changes to the Daily Achievement.  And, as often is the case when change is introduced, if you were to spend any time on the Guild Wars 2 forums, well the new changes have done nothing less than destroy the game!  For whatever reason, I haven't found the new dailies all that onerous, and I actually like the fact that I want to spend some time thinking about how to satisfy them.

Victory at Last

So it's been only, what, six months now since the game has released, and just last night I finally finished my personal story with one of my characters.  I gathered four brave companions.. okay two brave companions and two complete strangers, but still, five of us ventured into the lost city of Arah, and took the fight to Zhaitan himself.  The ensuing experience was both extraordinarily gratifying while at the same time somewhat disappointing.
