Kryta is one of GmaFog’s favorite places to adventure. Even though the region is full of human inhabitants, you will see the other races in one place or another. She loves the multiple landscapes you can find including lakes, swamps, rocky mountains, caves, and the plateaus of grass overlooking the valleys. The towns are made of rock and stucco buildings, whereas the camps have lots of tents and lean-tos. Some of the camps are nestled among trees and others are in dry rocky areas or terraced up the mountainside.
Get ready to grab a keg or two, strum a lute and sing for all you’re worth, Dragon Bash is back in Guild Wars 2 and we got a head start on the revelry here at Gaiscioch.
Ascalon is the home of the Charr, having 4 different legions called Iron, Ash, Blood and Flame that are spread over the zones. With the exception of the humans in Ebonhawke, most of the landscape is occupied by the Charr legions. They have a variety of terrain including snow, crystalline, volcanic, and dry, grassy landscapes. The main structures in the camps are made of metal and stone. It is an adventure to go through these zones because you never know what you are going to run into around the next rock.
It is almost too easy to assume, that given the opportunity, ArenaNet would leave the ongoing battle for Tyria to drag on for another season. With the Mists opening yet another war front it was easy to see where we were headed in Season 5 of Living World, or so I thought. Today, Guild Wars 2 drops the finale of Living World Season 4 and Gaiscioch got hands-on with War Eternal.
As a retired archaeologist and anthropologist in real life, I have learned to love folklore, history and any family story I can lay my hands on. In game, storylines are very interesting but not enough history for my taste, so I went on a quest in Guild Wars 2. I wanted to find where to read about history and folklore in the game. In the beginning, I only knew of a few I had come across while map clearing in certain areas. With the help of a few friends, I found some hidden libraries and some other areas new to me. The good ones also have achievements to go along with your reading, which makes them even more fun! Here are my top ten places to read, but realize, there are many more little places to find a book. You just have to go on an adventure to find them.
Five years after Gaiscioch Magazine set off on an epic quest to build their own gaming magazine, they celebrate the release of their 18th issue. Currently maintained by 8 members of the Gaiscioch Community they continue to produce weekly content surrounding the games they love. From previews and reviews to first look interviews with game developers, this magazine is something special.
When I first heard the announcement that Max Schaefer was at it again, this time focusing on a Multiplayer ARPG from the Torchlight universe I was overjoyed. I have been following Max's career for a while as he created titles within the Diablo & Torchlight universe as well as created a little known game called Mythos that never "really" made it out of testing. It still today lives on in my heart as one of the best ARPG MMO's ever made.
Oh, look another control point, let’s go and take it. OK, we took the control point, but there’s a patrol of Hyenas, let’s get them. Patrol down, hostages need to be freed, let’s go and free them. The hostages have been saved, now what were we originally doing again? This is a sample of what my play sessions have been like since Ubisoft launched Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, sequel to 2016’s Tom Clancy’s The Division. It’s just so easy to forget what your objective is with all the other activities popping up.
Sometimes the next big thing begins as a simple pitching jam between a group of friends. This is the case for a new innovative competitive quester. The goal of the game is to compete or collaborate with other players, in order to claim as many resources as possible. It's a blend between first person shooter and a quest based open world RPG.
Gaiscioch Magazine had the opportunity to work with Soulbound Studios to write about the upcoming Domain & Settlement Selection (D&SS). I’ve been joking about being some sort of scribe when the game goes live, and here I am getting another opportunity to write about its formative events.
