Steparu put up three videos a few months back touring some zones in Blade and Soul. A lot of these videos are him wall jumping and gliding (both key travel mechanics of the game) around to show of the areas.

SEATTLE - SEPTEMBER 13, 2012: NCsoft, the world's premier publisher and developer of massively multiplayer online games (MMOs), today confirms its Western expansion plans for Blade & Soul, the wildly successful Asian martial arts fantasy MMO developed by Team Bloodlust, an in-house studio based in NCsoft's headquarters in Seoul. Blade & Soul has already captured the hearts of millions, consistently ranking as one of the top games in PC cafés across South Korea since its launch eleven weeks ago, and plans to reach the same level of success and popularity in Western markets.
A little blurb from NCSoft West about censorship:
This is an exciting time for us as we can now use our official website, Twitter feed, and Facebook page to share information and provide status updates on the development of Blade & Soul® for Western audiences. We will use these platforms as a way to not only distribute official assets and information, but to directly address community concerns. With that in mind, we wanted to take a moment to shed some light on rumors that NCsoft West is censoring the content of Blade & Soul.

(this was written because I'm very bored today)
You need to return to Rift and drag Shawn with you (yes I know he's not a gamer). Because Madmartigan is always up to something and Torynn is plotting away in his tower the two of you need to get married in game so everyone in the guild will stop bugging you about it (also so Torynn will get his wish and not leave and cause chaos... ).
Per Martini's request...
P.S. If this doesn't happen, this will be Torynn:

The Lost Shores
Something is stirring in the Sea of Sorrows – and we want to make sure that you are not missing out, so here is a schedule (without spoilers) for you, so you can plan ahead:
"Brand new type of dungeon to be added - gets harder the further you get in, really big with a ton of levels. New rewards to the game that are buried deep within the new dungeon. Dungeon rewards are being actively worked on right now, and are also trying to make dungeons more fun to play."
For anyone that has ever been interested in giving Eve Online a try here is an open link (https://secure.eveonline.com/trial/?invc=35a9d159-8302-4fd9-9250-fdda34212d87&action=buddy) to test out the game.
The above link will allow you to create a 21-day trial account (as opposed to the 14 day trial by CCP).
Eve Online is a player-driven, persistent-world MMORPG set in a science fiction space setting. Characters pilot customizable ships through a galaxy of over 7,500 star systems. Most star systems are connected to one or more other star systems by means of stargates. The star systems can contain moons, planets, stations, wormholes, asteroid belts and complexes.
Dragon’s Prophet is a free to play fantasy MMO that tells the story of the relationship between humans and dragons. Set in the world of Auratia, explore the vast land as you attempt to fight, tame, and take flight of a wide variety of dragons as you take on this epic adventure which determines the world’s survival!
- Dragons Everywhere: In a world shaped by dragon-kind, more than 300 unique dragons roam the lands. Fight, capture, train and ride them in order to unlock their unique skills and abilities.
- Action-Based Combat System: Dragon’s Prophet uses a unique auto-target and combo system to give players more realistic battle action gameplay. This system gives players a higher degree of control with a wider range of tactical options than traditional MMOs.
- Beautiful Immersive World: Players are transported to the breathtaking world of Auratia, which is filled with amazingly detailed landscapes. Mysteries, challenges and monsters await as players fight for their survival and that of the entire realm.
- Extensive Housing System: Let your imagination and expectations run wild. Players have complete control to construct epic structures that defy imagination. Let the decorating begin!
- Frontier System: Guild leaders rejoice! With this large-scale construction system, players have the ability to build their ultimate kingdom. By empowering your citizens and constructing a powerful military, true leaders will be able to create and sustain their very own empire!
- Unique Player Classes: In Dragon’s ProphetYou can choose from four unique player classes to begin your journey into Auratia. Whether you like getting in close, popping an arrow into a dragon’s eye or blasting a group of goblins with ranged DPS, there is something for you!
- Your Dragon Destiny: The dragons you choose to capture shape your character and, ultimately, your fate. Will you be a legendary tank or a famous healer? Do you lead the charge or let your dragons bear the brunt of the fighting? Training the right dragons is the difference between life and death!

The Mad King hasn't been seen in Tyria for 250 years, which means it's about time for a reappearance! Guild Wars 2 is on the verge of its first major content update, and ArenaNet just shared a schedule for the Halloween story. Act one will begin on October 22nd, with the subsequent acts following on the 26th, 28th, and 31st. To whet your appetite for this spooky update, there's also a new video with a content tease, so head on over to the content page or check it out past the break.

So this is a very bizarre issue I've been having lately with Mumble. When I talk other members have commented that there is a lot of static or that my voice sounds robotic. Now, normally I'd be able to figure out what's causing this issue but if I go on Vent, Teamspeak, Skype, or any other Mumble server that isn't our own I sound perfectly fine. Heck... even using a built in MMO VOIP program, such as EVE Voice or the voice comms in DDO, I still sound perfectly fine and get no static or robotic sounding voice.
Anyone have any clue what's causing The Guardian server to bug out on me and cause my voice to sound terrible?

P.S. Yes I'm stealing/borrowing the Honey Badger from Taven and applying it to the Guild Wars 2 Explorable Dungeons since "the honey badger doesn't care" about the difficulty but just wants to have a good time with others.
Now that the game has been live for two weeks I’m looking at getting some groups formed to tackle the explorable mode dungeons. To start I’m going to keep the scope of these groups limited to the first three dungeons to get people coordinated and working well in tackling the many challenges that will be thrown there way.
As always, each group will have there own dedicated Mumble channel but feel free to stop by and listen as we
I myself will be running groups for explorable mode Friday nights.
If anyone wishes to run a group for one of the three dungeons let me know.
Please post the following in your response (this is organizational so the group leaders know what group composition they will have):
- In Game Character Name
- Character Profession
- Which dungeons are you interested in
- Siri Nightsong
- Caudecus Manor and Twilight Arbor
Three starting zones... Plains of Ashford, Queensdale, and Caledon Forest...
Three dungeons... Ascalonian Catacombs, Caudecus Manor, and Twilight Arbor...
Are you brave enough to venture into these dungeons in explorable mode?
Ascalon Catacombs (Level 35)
King Adelbern and his ghostly citizens have been foiled, but now, even darker entities roam the Ascalonian catacombs.
Caudecus Manor (Level 45)
Caudecus the Wise is currently accepting the hospitality of Queen Jennah while repairs are being made to his manor. Others seek to profit from the minister’s absence.
Twilight Arbor (Level 55)
Faolain has fled the Twilight Arbor, but the evil that infects this region remains. In her wake, other forces have now flooded in to take advantage of her foul magics to their own ends.
