All that and more coming up right now…
The AIE Spring Craft Faire in WoW is now only one short month away! This forum post has all of the details as to where, when and how you can help! This is one of our bigger events that happens 2x a year, and is a great opportunity to get some tradeskills leveled.
Nerdtacular update! N13 is 371% funded! And that’s before the ticket sales! If you are interested in heading out there, the forums are full of offers from your fellow guildies to rideshare from various places around the country! You might have to act fast though, it seems the hotels are booking up fast!
Guild Wars 2 is 30% off until April 1st! And that’s no joke! The game also has a recent store update full of fun spring stuff, and has a name change feature that just released on march 27th! So if you were thinking Guild Wars 2 sounded pretty great from our show last week, jump on the sale!
Do you want to help Lord of the Rings Online improve? Turbine has launched the LOTRO Player Council. Now you can be a part of a select group of players offering advice to the developers, testing out early betas, and bubbling up suggestions and ideas from the rest of the LOTRO community. You’ll even earn some Turbine Points along the way.
Hey World of Warcraft players – Enjoying 5.2? Having fun? Well you will be pleased to know it is already old news. The great minds at Blizzard have already announced patch notes for the next patch: 5.3! This patch seems to be more PVP focused, and there is already some ptr action and discussion about the patch going on. To find out more about it, check the shownotes or head on over to the warcraft website.
And speaking of Blizzard, they also just announced a whole new game, Hearthstone! Hearthstone will be a digital card game that is set to release on PC, Mac, and eventually IOS. You can sign up for the beta now, but no word as of when it will be opening up. The cool thing here is you will be able to challange your friends and fellow guildies through battle.net with real id and battle tags.
Star Trek Online has big news! Their first expansion, ‘Legacy of Romulus’, is due out sometime soon! Star Trek Online is a free to play game, and this expansion is going to be free for all players! The biggest news is that they are adding a third faction, the Romulans, but they are making big changes to existing game play as well! For all the information check out the Star Trek online website!
Andrew Allen’s Kickstarter for ‘Free Play: A Video Game Tribute’ is now halfway there with 23 days to go! I know we can get him there sooner than the actual deadline. All it takes is 20 dollars and that gets you a CD shipped anywhere in the US for free. And international shipping is only 2 bucks more!
For links to more information about everything in this week’s news, see the show notes.
