  • Guild Wars @ TenTonHammer weighs in on fluff content.

    The success of a game is based on it's playability. Sticking power, however, is partly from the little things--the hair-styles, the dyes, the clothes and the non-combat oriented combat. In short, the fluff! And Samyel over on Guild Wars - TenTonHammer thinks her game of choice could use a little more of the fluffy stuff.

    t's not just the vanity issues, honestly. How about some game content that isn't so dang violent? We've got PvE and PvP... emphasis on the "V." What is there to do when we aren't bashing heads in? Go take a look around. Mostly, the non-combat game content of Guild Wars consists of trying to bully fellow players into sync dancing with you, hitting on girls who probably aren't real girls, and crying about getting WAY nerfed.

    Read about the GW fluff (or lack thereof) at Guild Wars - TenTonHammer.

  • Competing for cash in an MMORPG?

    Nope, we're not talking about two gold farmers dickering over a roll. The Guild Wars World Championship began this week in Taipei. Six teams representing three regions are competing for fame, glory, and the $100,000 grand prize. In this editorial, we take a look at the GWWC. Read about it at our Guild Wars @ TenTonHammer community site. Good luck to all the folks participating. Travel safe, play fair, and take lots of pictures for those of us back home!

    It’s a pretty crazy concept, when you think about it. Playing a video game and ending up in a foreign country, competing for cash. Sure, it’s happened with first-person-shooter games, but a game billed as an RPG? Not so common. Guild Wars is a unique mix of story-telling and competitive PvP action, and its success rests firmly on both pillars.

  • Enter the Mesmer

    Samyel, on the Guild Wars - TenTonHammer community site, has just finished polishing up the Elementalist skills, so everything should be tickity-boo and trustworthy in their skill lists. This week we began work on the Mesmer lists, kicking off with the general and Fast Casting skills. Onwards and upwards, we're making progress!

  • Candy... and Lies?

    At Guild Wars @ TenTonHammer, this week's editorial is a cynical look at Valentine's Day, romance, and Guild Wars. Everyone has a view on Valentine's Day, and this one is not glittering with the shiny light of idealism. Read about it here!

    I’m not going to take a guess at gender ratios here, but its fair to say that most of those alluring babes chatting it up in Lion’s Arch aren’t female in the flesh. It’s hard to get affectionate with a sexy elementalist babe if you know that her inner voice is a tenor.

  • Only the Best…

    …for our readers, and GuildWars @ TenTonHammer continues the tradition. Samyel knows that the database contains some obsolete information. Samyel also knows that there’s a whole slew of new skills coming in the next few months with the release of the Factions Expansion. Consequently, we’re cleaning house. Every skill in the database is going to be checked and updated to reflect the current game.

    Today, we dusted and polished the Elementalist skills that have no attribute, or use Energy Storage. We’ll be working on updates for the next week or so, and intend to get things sparkly-clean well before the release of Factions, the new expansion for Guild Wars (in a store near you this spring!).
