LoreHound Crier: The Week in a Glance

Another week has come and gone here at LoreHound! It certainly is an exciting time to be a gamer! TERA Online, Torchlight 2, Diablo 3, Guild Wars 2, and my personal favorite The Secret World; all sorts of long-awaited goodies are on their way. This week we have more interviews, rumors, and beta previews! I wish I could kick this migraine that’s been insisting on running free, so I could be off in gameland.

I have a new icon for these weekly summaries, which I think is terribly cute. Made by Almalexiel at almalexiel.com, I especially love the little two-headed puppy! Thanks, Almalexiel! I’m struggling to finish up before my painkillers wear off, so on with the lineup!

  • PAX Interview with AnnaMarie about The Walking Dead, a boardgame from Cryptozoic.
  • Mike shared his views on pvp, and why he doesn’t think it works in theme park games.
  • PAX Interview with Christina Sims about the latest from Cryptozoic, Penny Arcade: The Game – Rumble in R’lyeh. Nipplecrabs?
  • Mike talked about possible SWTOR server mergers, which probably comes as no great surprise to most. It come as no surprise to me, I had a lot of fun with SWTOR! For about two months.
  • Mike is excited for TERA! I hope it’s everything he’s hoping for!
  • Mike pondered pvp or pve in Guild Wars 2. What’s your take?
  • Pre-orders for Torchlight 2 are open! And you can get Neverwinter beta keys! I’ve never had much interest in Neverwinter, but after watching iTZKooPA’s Neverwtiner interview a few weeks ago, I’ll admit I’m curious to see it! Torchlight 2 + Neverwinter beta? Who can pass that up?
  • It sounds like the plot of some sort of 80s callback movie, but there are rumors that Nexon is preparing a bid for a hostile takeover of EA. I’m not sure what would be created from a merge of those two game companies.
  • RaiderZ Interview with Raiderz Executive Producer, Mark Hill. iTZKooPA gets the scoop on  action-combat, monster hunting, the item shop and much more!
  • Mike fought his epic battle to download Guild Wars 2! He’ll have more news on that as well as TERA as he gets his gameface on.
About Pherephassa 213 Articles
Pherephassa has been creeping around the etherspace long enough to have remorted so often that not even she can recall her original form. She loves sandboxes, challenges, chain mail bikinis and dungeons so large they take weeks, months or even years to fully explore. Currently seeking an MMO home, she can often be found on the side of the road, begging game designers for death penalties and slow leveling curves.
