TGS is in full swing and all of us here VG247 keep getting buried under our evil RSS feeds.
Still, we solider on, and today loads of stuff happened on each shift. I know, personally, when it is over with, I am going to sleep like the dead. I still haven’t recovered from my trip to Call of Duty XP. It wasn’t the event’s fault – although I did partake a bit more than I should have in the spirits department – I just haven’t readjusted to my time zone. It happens.
That’s all I am giving you today. I wrote you a novel yesterday, and I promise to try not to do that to you again.
Now, let’s get you caught up, shall we?
Inventing Asura: Guild Wars 2′s Ree Soesbee and Jeff Grubb
Last week, I had a chat with Ree and Jeff regarding the Asura race in Guild Wars 2. I always enjoy chatting with the folks at ArenaNet, especially those in charge of the lore. I suppose it’s because I am a massive high fantasy buff.

Me want. Pre-order bonuses or no.
Surely this will head west sooner rather than later. I mean, Yakuza and Zombies? Win.
Because it’s just not as fun shooting mutants unless you have background music from Maynard and co.
The environment trailer for the Asura is gorgeous.
This game was brought into our house last night. Hopefully, I’ll get a turn soon.
Ho boy, oh boy, uh boy.
Some shots of Ubi’s Vita titles on a Vita system.
Lots of details on multiplayer there for you.
It is a curious situation. Maybe we’ll find out soon enough the reasoning behind it.
In other words, grow some.
This game is so going to put me on blood pressure meds when it comes out. I can see it now.
Monkeys creep me out a bit, maybe because I have dated a few, but this picture seemed suitable for the opening blurb.
Classic move there, Volition.
Another game I am wanting, like everyone else.
For a military shooter, this looks great. I just wish I was better at games like this.
Not being noobed up, apparently.
Rare says it still has it.
Sounds a bit like The Lost Boys to me, only without the bad hair and horrible acting.
Sadly, I won’t get an invite. I never get an invite to betas. Back luck, etc.
That’s it for me. See you in the morning, 8am EST.
