Age’s Site Update For March 2016

gw2-hype-train

Hey all, I’m back with a monthly update about the site but first I’d like to say something that became big news yesterday.

Guild Wars 2 Game Director Colin Johanson shall be leaving ArenaNet for a new opportunity that will allow him to be with and support his family more. Colin has worked on Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 for both of it’s life spans and has been an amazing voice (and smile) in the Guild Wars 2 community. This news was made available yesterday on Reddit as the opening of an AMA from ArenaNet President Mike O’Brien who will be temporarily filling Colin’s shoes. This news hit me a bit harder than I thought it would. I’m sad to see Colin go but I wish him the best and many thanks for the years he’s given to the Guild Wars franchise.

Guild Wars 2 posts have been a bit lacking as of late. But there really isn’t much to talk about right now. Things in Guild Wars 2 are in a slow state. I think I’ll do a state of the game type of deal and highlight some responses from the recent AMA.

League of Legends LCS posts are still going. Week 7’s post will be next week since this weekend is IEM Katowice which you can check out on the ESL LoL Twitch channel.

For games of this month, Far Cry Primal (PC) looks interesting & Black Desert Online (PC) came out earlier this week. Heavy Rain is on PS4 now if you’ve never played it as well as The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the WiiU.

What’s coming out is The Division (Xbox One, PC, PS4) on March 8th, Hitman (Xbox One, PC, PS4) on March 11th, Need for Speed (PC) March 15th

That’s all for now, I’ll catch you later!

  1. ”years he’s given to the Guild Wars franchise” , Guild Wars franchise gave him a career as well as a spotlight as well. Reason why he is leaving, I would bet my wallet on is this company is making cuts which they are notorious for doing in the past. Guild Wars last xpack was also not the cash cow they expected it to be and failed horribly in many ways, and spread the community even more.

    Personally disappointed with Guild Wars 2 world pvp, at launch had amazing potential and continually worn away but poor dev decision making and Colin was part of that decision making. Poor job on heart of thorns adding more fluff instead of adding more intelligent fixes to bring the game to the PVP for-front that it had the potential for.

    Had potential to be the greatest mmo ever pvp wise and squandered the opportunity. Sadface.

    Black desert , if your a fan of the original guild wars or or guild wars 2, black desert will never be a replacement. Its basically end game PVP and crafting, the combat system is horrible compared to either guild wars, really a shame because it is beautiful in it’s appearance, environment and art. For $30 bucks it makes a ok stop gap I guess. A pass to look over the artwork and sample its world.
    Lacks the leveling excitement of both guild wars titles.
