Guild Wars Explorer – A Beautiful Bridge

Ever have dream about a video game? It’s a fairly rare occurrence for me. But considering that I’ve been playing video games for almost three decades, one was bound to happen sooner or later. Sometime in between the release of Guild Wars: Prophecies and Guild Wars: Nightfall, I had an incredibly vivid dream. If dreams were TVs, this was in high definition.

ArenaNet has been quiet… too quiet. Where’s all the information about Chapter 4? That’s when I decided to kick things into “Competitive Intelligence” mode. For those of you that don’t know about CI, it’s ethical information gathering. It’s different than espionage. James Bond I’m not. While I own a Tuxedo, I doubt I could talk my way past the front desk of ArenaNet HQ.
