My goodness, that lady's bikini is awfully close to body tone from this far away, isn't it? If the sun and sandy beaches didn't give it away, I've spent most of the last week or so of Guild Wars 2 time in Southsun Cove. Karka Island! Sunny Orr!

Starting on May 14th, the team will be enticing players to return to Southsun Cove, the location of the controversial Lost Shores event. A new dev blog on t...

With Guild Wars 2's first multi-month living story arc drawing to a close, I thought this might be a good time to do a little bit of reflection on how the living story is treating Guild Wars 2 so far. Sure, what we've seen so far isn't necessarily indicative of the way things are always going to b...

So Guild Wars 2 had this event last weekend and it seems like things didn't go quite as planned. There were bugs, crashes, and enough glitches to keep Glitch alive with namesake royalties (too soon?), but ArenaNet realizes that players weren't as happy as they'd have liked. So tonight the dev st...

In today's jam-packed episode of Massively Speaking, Bree and Justin (now in Smell-o-Vision™) attempt to wrap up one of the busiest weeks of MMO releases... like, ever. Battered and bruised, they survived to tell you the harrowing tale. Won't studios please think of the children when they s...

I won't be the first one to point this out, but almost as annoying as his eagerness to tell the citizens of Tyria about his new tourist destination (he was so eager that he actually interrupted himself -- constantly) was Subdirector Blingg's use of the phrase "most unique." No idea what I'm talk...

Guild Wars 2's Lost Shores update is just around the corner -- that is, if you can consider nighttime to be a corner. What I'm trying to say is that Lost Shores goes live tomorrow. We brought you a content primer a couple of days ago to give you the basics of what's going on. Now it's time to t...

Earlier today, Guild Wars 2 players got their first real idea of what's awaiting them in the Lost Shores content update. They responded with an collective outcry against the introduction of Ascended items, which inhabit a new tier of item rarity. The roar of outrage was a little muddled, howeve...
