  1. ♪ Rubber ducky, you’re the one. ♪
    ♪ Who makes bath time lots of fun! ♪
    ♪ Rubber ducky I’m awfully fond of you. ♪

    As much as I love rubber duckies I still have to give the best April Fools prank to Super Adventure Box in Guild Wars 2. It’s hard to beat adding a whole new game, especially when it’s in a genre that doesn’t have many modern entries. Hopefully with the refocus on Gw2 Anet will get around to add world 3 next year. Doubt it but a guy can hope.

  2. Odd for me to not rant in bombs this time, but all I could say is boring and how I hate the games I like. Like World of Tanks, gosh I hate the Game and the Community even more, but I like blowing them up, I like playing the competitive portion of it. Division 2 is in the same boat, I am bored of grinding the same things over and over and not seeing much progress on my gear sets, but I also like the Challenge it gives me some times. It’s Frustrating.

    QOTW: Best one I saw in Games was in WarThunder when they had the Mech mode, World of Warships with the Bathtub would be a hot second for me.

  3. Torchlight might have a year or two:), Just remember Perfect world help on to that one title (think the name was swordsman) before they accepted that it was the failure that it was and closed it.

  4. Kind of sounds like they don’t have faith that their skins will sell separately. Guild Wars 2 is a nice game, but they have always seemed to be lacking faith that in-game sells can support their title. They seem to rely more on selling expansions (storyline) versus in-game sells. Maybe they should take all the content of the expansions and sell parts of it and focus on more small transactions versus the full expansion price.

    And sorry about my last post with The Foundry (STO Foundry). My mind tends to wander, it’s hard to focus at times.
