So, what are you doing this weekend?
Not playing Guild Wars 2, that’s what!
Just before GuildCast got up and running, the inimitable Martin Kerstein broke the news that new hardware implementation was being carried out before the next BWE, which means no frolics in Tyria in the now 50% less merry month of May.
What does this new hardware mean for the next BWE and how does it reflect on ArenaNet‘s response to the testing so far?
We mull it over while sulking.
But only for a little bit, as there’s too much news to get too sullen!
Mike O’Brien thinks that microtransactions are pretty straightforward to make work. Are the continuing fears of some an indication ArenaNet is unaware of the dangers? According to O’Brien, Guild Wars 2 has RMT nailed down pretty well. We talk about why he’s so confident.
He also spoke about consoles again, is the fact that this topic continues to be addressed an obvious sign that something is on the way? And is GW2 really that suited for cross platform play?
Christopher Lye certainly thinks that designers should be taking risks, we talk about the current state of MMOs and why it is still perceived as a genre. Will GW2‘s evolutionary step lead to more inventiveness in MMO design?
There’s a lot to talk about, so join us to keep warm in this winter of our BWE discontent. The hot topics are covered by our regular team of Massively’s Richie “Bogotter’ Procopio and Elisabeth Cardy along with GAMEBREAKER’s Scott Hawkes and Gary Gannon.
Keep your chin up! It can’t be all bad, at least you can jump into another monster edition of GuildCast!
