  • Tower shields and full face helms.
    Our community managers at the EverQuest 2 site have updated the Guardian Class Guide with spell/skill comparisons! We're going out on a limb and pretending that they wrote this:

    " Thanks to Alaric of Oggok, The Guardian's Shield now has a side-by-side combat ability comparison in Chapter 2: Abilities List. Now you can make an informed decision on which ability upgrades are worth your hard-earned gold, and which ones, well, are less so! "

  • Is a Dwarf a good choice for you? I guess it depends on how far you want to toss him.
    RPGVault has posted their weekly WoW tips. This week covers the Dwarven race and equipping your hunter. It's conceivable that they wrote this:

    "Should you decide to play a Dwarf, you'll be able to choose among five classes. My impression is that Hunter and Warrior are the most popular."

  • It tastes good, but the texture turns me off.
    Tim Rhoades of Shadowpool Studios tells us about texturing process in Trials of Ascension. They may have written this:

    "In this months dev journal I would like to take a few minutes to talk
    about, (you guessed it), textures! I will also see if I can catch Brax
    napping and sneak into the vault to grab a little more to look at
    besides the all ready posted screen shots."

  • Someone removed their finger from the dyke and another Guild Wars review spilled out.
    BonusStage has posted a review of Guild Wars. We are nearly certain that they wrote this:

    "When it comes to Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG), gamers either love them or hate them, there’s rarely a middle ground. Something fans and non-fans alike would agree on hating however is the “pay as you play” monthly fee MMOs charge to play. Who with a sane mind actually likes paying 10 to 15 bucks a month after laying down a fifty-spot just to buy the game in the first place? As someone who absolutely loves a great MMORPG, even I have grown sick and tired of the fees. That’s why when NCsoft announced Guild Wars, a quasi-MMORPG with completely free online play, I gave up any care I had for the rash of upcoming (and now released) high profile titles like World of Warcraft and EverQuest 2 and held out for its arrival. After a long wait and numerous squelched urges to give those “other” MMOs a try, Guild Wars has arrived at long last and I’m so thankful for its creation, and you most certainly should be too."

  • Shiver me timbers.
    The team at Pirates of the Burning Sea have posted their current milestone goals. With no guarantee we believe that they wrote this:

    "Now that E3 is over, we can take a bit more time polishing some of the new elements that went into the game. This list looks a bit smaller than previous milestones, because some of the bullet items (such as Missions and Avatars) encompass several people."

  • It's coming, but we can't tell you when.
    The Saga of Ryzom team has posted an In Development page allowing players to discuss upcoming changes. We're almost confident that they wrote this:

    "This section contains items that we have decided to put on the schedule, plus bug fixes and other items we might be working on and that you need to know about. There is no time estimations for completion for any item in this list, either; development items and bug fixes can slip, after all."

  • A Celestial Sigil to call your own.
    The folks at GuildWarsGuru are giving away a Celestial Sigil. It's within the realm of possibility that they wrote this:

    "In conjunction with the guild Idiot Savants, Guild Wars Guru is proud to host this contest of Guild Wars knowledge and acumen. By next week, the lucky winner will receive a Celestial Sigil donated by Idiot Savants."
