Guild Wars: Nightfall

Apparently there'll be a PvP preview for GW: Nightfall on July 28th till the 30th. More details on Nightfall went up on Gamespot.

Alas, I'll be on holiday on the East Coast on those dates and so I most likely won't get to see the new classes. Sigh.

Guild Wars: Double Faction

Just in case you didn't see this, there's double Balthazar's Faction on offer over this weekend (starting today until midnight PST Sunday), just to spice up the Open Event a bit.

Guild Wars: Open Event

Some tips for the upcoming Open Event went up on the official GW site. Sounds painful to me - strictly for those guilds whose players all have minimal commitments to family/life/sleep.

Feels very reminiscent of the Magic "meatgrinder", the all-night tournament before the US Nationals - I can't help wondering if that was the inspiration.

Natural Selection

Fired up Natural Selection for the first time in a long while last night. Amazingly, I was merely fairly average instead of outstandingly awful - by no means the worst player. Game is still fantastic. It was nice to see the WhichBot doing what it's meant to as well - letting real people play till there's enough for a proper game.

All in all, very satisfactory way to spend an hour or two. I think I may have to boot it up some more to remind myself why I remember being such a terrible shot.

On Stories

I know a story is good if I'm sad when it ends.
