Almost a year since my last post. Here’s the short version of what’s been going on with MMOzu (har…har?).
- Quitting WoW was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time for numerous reasons. BUT…PANDAS, you say? Yeah, no. Get fucked.
- SWTOR is one of the worst titles I’ve ever played. Seriously. I’ve never before in the 30+ years I’ve been playing vidya games wanted to see a game just crash, burn and fail spectacularly. Until TOR.
- Guild Wars 2, surprisingly enough, or maybe unsurprisingly, still looks awesome. The first closed beta is finished, and not a single image or video has leaked to my knowledge, which says to me that people are loving it enough to not want to get kicked out. ArenaNet is preparing for open beta, apparently, so…yeah. (Not to mention how open the devs/writers/artists have been with the community, and the playable demo at every con has left people clamoring for more.)
And, so, that brings us back to BEARZU SMASH!, which will be a GW2 info/primer blog for the time being, then a travelogue of myself, Mrs. Bearzu, and the gang that joins us in playing.
The tentative guild name is [Two Drink Minimum], but suggestions are encouraged.
Starting in the next couple of days, I’ll be posting links to game info, class info, cool videos, interviews, links to blog posts and whatnot, as well as getting the place spruced back up (and de-WoWified).
