Chaturday: The Story of In Plain English and how Atlus Got Copyright Wrong

Diaries From Guild Wars 2 Part 1: Path of Fire

(Disclosure: I received a copy of Path of Fire for the purpose of writing about. As always, this has no bearing on my opinion on the game) Guild Wars 2 has been my on-again off-again MMO for the past few years (five, it’s been five years since Guild Wars 2 launched. Crazy, right?) The past […]
