Since the servers are currently down I figure I would write a quick review regarding my experiences in the first “Open Beta” of Guild Wars 2. And I’m going to be as NEGATIVE as possible considering how much of a fan boy I am.
The character creation screen was really nice, I made a Charr Male Warrior and a Human Female Necromancer. The Charr looks simply bad ass, but walking around the Black Citadel one thing that stood out to me was every single tail of the Charr was on a swing timer and swung at the exact time.. It was kinda annoying. The human is gorgeous of course, but also looks too perfect, i was hoping to see more hair styles returning from the original Guild Wars, and more styles in general. But I was still able to create a character that simply put, was my own. I’m hoping more styles will be added later, or even cash shopped. I’ve mainly played as the Necro, the warrior I found kind of boring, granted, level two isn’t expected to be OMG WOW. But the first large battle as a Charr was easy, and didn’t look as glorious swinging at a stone block. Combat at times can be slow, and I seem to spam 1 like mad since with every weapon, it has such a low recast time. But you are definitely able to strategically play the game. And times it’s intense, but at times, kinda slow. Without the weapon swapping, I would not enjoy the combat.
A video of GWEN’s MS Toga Party. The challenge I offered the Guild Wars community was if I received 500 whispers saying “TOGA!” I would donate $1 for each whisper. Well the GW community said “CHALLENGE ACCEPTED” And they spammed me ALL DAY even AFTER I received 500 whispers! It was simply amazing!

So this was a build I created about 4 years ago. I used to love making solo builds, sadly.. This is the only video I made of farming. The purpose of this horrible build was to combat ArenaNet’s recent nerf’s to SS and the improvements they did on the enemy AI. Back in the day as some remember, if you had 20 enemies on you.. they would stay on you when you nuked them down. That changed.. enemies started running off and away from AoE damage.. And to battle it, I created this build, that worked fairly well.. wasn’t great.. but it did work. Cultist Fervor was used to control energy management, while Dark Aura and controlled blood sacrifices did the damage. Then of course the standard Monk skills and enchants. Sadly.. Energy management wasn’t great.. The damage was good, but within a few hits with Dark Aura, the mobs would end up spreading again.
It’s obsolete now.. but I wanted to present it on my blog simply cuz I can. :P
So I finished the new Duke Nukem game..
It was one of the worst fucking games I’ve ever played in my life. The only plus side of the entire damn game was perky tits thrown in your face every minute. Granted.. there was a few funny moments.. but the story line was shit.. it was incredible easy, it was short, and left me never wanting to think of Duke Nukem again..
I loved the original Duke Nukem.. This thing was an abomination of the king..
