My precious, beat up, run down, and much loved five-year-old PC has finally gone to that giant wasteland in the sky.
Unfortunately that means, I won’t be able to review any games for a little bit, and why I haven’t reviewed any in this past month. However, I DO still have my MacBook, and several games that run on THAT, so I’ll potentially be able to pick up reviewing again as soon as next week, I just need to buy a new MacBook cable! Issues, issues, I tell ya.
In other news, ArenaNet has finally opened up Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Stronghold will be going live for 24 hours starting April 14th! The purpose of this go-live is for players to test the PvP system, so I fully encourage you to log in and attempt to kick the crap out of it. For science!
As if the idea of kicking your friend’s butt a la PvP style, here is another great reason for you to get into the game:
To invite everyone to join in the excitement, ArenaNet is marking this first public beta test for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns with a series of livestream specials on Twitch that include fierce matches featuring developers and special guests. The studio is also enticing new players to join by launching a massive sale on Guild Wars 2 with a 75 percent discount on the game. The sale starts at 10 a.m. PT tomorrow, April 10, and runs until 11:59 p.m. PT onSunday, April 13. During this time, the game’s Digital Heroic Edition will be $9.99 and the Digital Deluxe edition will be $14.99 when purchased atbuy.guildwars2.com.
Players will also be allowed to join in the fun on the official Guild Wars 2 Twitch.tv stream.
Speaking of Twitch, I have another announcement!
Once my new PC is acquired, set up and running properly (which will be soon – FINGERS CROSSED), I’ll be starting my own PC Gamer Girl Twitch Channel so you can subscribe to me and follow along whenever I start playing a new game. I tend to play scary, in-your-face games and I will warn you – I’m very animated. I’ll scream, I’ll jump, and I’ll probably have some very comical expressions cross my face from time to time. You won’t want to miss it, I guarantee you.
You can read more about this announcement on the Guild Wars 2 website, as well as view a detailed time frame of the 23 hour Twitch stream and if you don’t have it yet, definitely don’t forget to grab a copy of Guild Wars 2 (especially while it’s on sale!) and get in on the action AND sign up for the official Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns newsletter to make sure you don’t miss out on anything.
