The filename for the animated bell graphic includes Shing Jea, so… Yeah, it’s confirmed.

Factions theme <3. Every once in a while I'll listen to the Factions soundtrack. This expansion tease spurred me on to listen once more.

An American Tail was one of the animated movies from my childhood that I hold dear to my heart. I like to sing "Somewhere Out There" on occasion. It's a touching little song.

There is a mention of

in the latest GW2 episode.

“Something tells me Colin wasn’t a big GW1 fan.” Might have been that article where Natalyia took him to lore school :)

Thanks for reading my mail guys! Just wanted to say that I noticed Bree said “luner with an E”

Just wanted to say I do know how to spell lunar but I once was a bed wettin little kid who named his character Lunerpoison many moons ago because I didn’t know there was an “A”in there LOL. Just kept the handle all these years.

Cheers all!

I haven’t watched that movie with my kids because I know I’ll probably lose it when they get to that song.

If GW2 actually adds some fun stuff like housing or fishing or better crafting this time around, I might try it again. Right now, the game offers literally nothing to do but flashy combat and a very mediocre story, which gets old -real- fast (oh, and jumping puzzles, which I hate because I’m old and my reflexes suck)

Bree and Justin talk about a email asking about dead emails.
The next email they read out came from a person called Lazarus.
Any one else pick up on this ?

That should read dead MMOs.
Proof reading ftw

Maybe it’s a portent that the genre will get better, just like Lazarus!

I’ll watch the video, people need something other than the corona news, if we have free time let’s not waste it on following the news, so a 70+ min video about crafting in SWG is perfect for these times :-)

You can play too! As responsible MMO players we’re already used to self quarantines!
