Here at Guild Wars Insider, we do our best to bring you the latest in Guild Wars 2 news, the freshest in content and anything that falls in-between. For months, we’ve worked to keep you informed both on how to best succeed at playing this game and how, day to day, the world of Tyria has evolved through its long, tenuous development cycle.
We’ve been writers. We’ve been reporters. Columnists. Editors. Some of us came because of our writing talents and the desire to use them in conjunction with a game we’ve come to love. Others came simply because we couldn’t get enough of what was going on in Tyria, and we wanted to be just a few feet closer than the rest. But tonight, as the United States timezones shift past midnight and our calendars flip to Saturday, August 25, we will briefly shed our roles at Guild Wars Insider and, at least for one night, become gamers once again.
Here’s how we will celebrate.
I’m buying myself a brand new desk and going out with friends to dinner before we all pull an all-nighter that we will forever remember. :3
Also: Stocking up on pizza rolls and bagel bites.
A new Nostromo, new obscenely powerful PC, new condenser mic, new twitch channel, new YouTube channel, new podcast (which is on iTunes as of today), 10 days off work starting Saturday, a fridge full of beer, a 12 pack of 5 hour energies, a girlfriend who loves the game as much as I do and who has stocked the house with healthy snacks to compensate for my reckless abandon.
I am considering doing an all-nighter. Not sure yet. I haven’t done one since I hosted sleep-over LAN parties (we didn’t sleep).
God, I feel so old.
Me and like 3 friends will be hopping on vent and hanging out. Pounding away at the servers until they let us in! lol
Other than that, pulling an all weekend and finally passing out on Monday night.
Me and a few of my good friends are stocking up tomorrow, spending the afternoon cooking a bunch of good food for the weekend (I plan to make a bunch of Spicy Shrimp Kebabs in honor of Rytlock’s favorite Thundershrimp). One of my roommates even has a friend from Florida coming up for the week, whose joining in the GW2 revelries. A few people are coming back to town early before the school year just to get a week of solid gaming in…
Now it’s your turn. How will you celebrate? Will you pound the login button for as long as it takes before you get in? Will you go to bed early and wake up at five or six in the morning, once the majority of the crowds have subsided?
Comment below, and don’t be shy.
