I don’t usually buy gaming magazines. The reason, of course, is that whatever content they might contain, more and better info can be found online, more quickly. Every time I walk through the magazine aisle in the grocery store I have a quick look at the issue of PC Gamer sitting there, and have put it right back down again for something like the last 2 years. This month’s issue, however, pushed every one of my upcoming game buttons (ME3, Skyrim, GW2,) so I had to grab it.
The Guild Wars 2 piece is a bit about how to get various goodies in GW2 by working your GW1 Hall of Monuments. Me, I’ve never finished a GW campaign, despite owning Prophecies, Factions and Eye of the North. I’ve gotten stuck every time. Now, my understanding is that Nightfall represents a significantly improved experience, but it’s always been at the wrong price point. For a title as old as it is I expect to pay $10… maybe $15. Not the $30 it runs for on Steam or in the NCSoft store, or that the trilogy costs at retail… and besides, I already have the other two.
But I found it for $6.50 on eBay tonight and grabbed it at that bargain price. Since we appear to have plenty of time before GW2 comes out, I will probably install it right away but won’t get to playing it until I can make a sustained push… during one of the beaks I have coming up most likely.
