My Raptr Profile where you can find links to all my various platform profiles, including Steam, as well as see how many hours of my life I've sunk into this hobby. Feel free to add me, but please message me and let me know you're from Gaming.SE.

Gaming.SE blog where I mostly edit, but sometimes contribute.

Platforms I own:

  • Nintendo Wii
  • Nintendo DSLite
  • Nintendo 3DS
  • XBox 360
  • Playstation 3
  • Playstation 2
  • Sony PSP-2000
  • Playstation Vita
  • PC, Windows 7

Genres I enjoy:

  • MMORPGs (City of Heroes, Guild Wars 1 & 2, various F2P MMOs)
  • RPGs (Final Fantasy series, BioWare games)
  • Music/Rhythm games (Rock Band/GH series, Audiosurf, Beat Hazard)
  • TBS (Civilization series)
  • RTS to some extent (Age of Empires, Command & Conquer, not a big StarCraft player)
  • Simulation/God games (Anno series, SimCity, Tropico, Dungeon Keeper, Evil Genius)
  • Action/Adventure (Zelda series, ICO/SotC, God of War series)
  • Arcade racers (Burnout series)
  • 3rd person open world sandbox games with exaggerated physics/reality (seriously, this practically a genre unto itself now... Prototype, Infamous, Crackdown, Saints Row series, Just Cause 1/2, Arkham Asylum/City)
  • weird, quirky indie games whose qualities I have trouble quantifying (Recettear, The Void, The Path)
  • Basically nearly anything except for sports games like FIFA/Madden/UFC/etc.

comment Do emblems give bonuses or are they just for show?
The event emblems are an exception. Having the emblems equipped during bounty turnins during Queen's Wrath and Iron Banner did give bonuses.

comment What are the different currencies and how are they earned?
Note that you can only hold a maximum of 200 Crucible Marks in your inventory, the same as the Vanguard Marks' maximum. This isn't noted on the wiki. Friend of mine found that out the hard way.

comment What is the best race for Elementalist for WvW?
I don't agree with closing this question, as there are only 5 races and 6 racial skills per race, so it's not too broad, IMO. Additionally, this question would fall under Good Subjective. @vasili111 However, providing more detail to your question can be helpful. Do you know what kind of preferred playstyle you have (zerging, seigeing, small stuff like hitting up camps, yak runs, etc.) or are you looking for more general utility? Being more specific can help people answer your question better.

The Frontier Shell is not just for the Ghost Edition. It's included in the Limited Edition and Digital Guardian Editions as well.

comment Where is the Vanguard Armory?
You can actually start buying them at level 5 and they will scale up to level 10 the next time the store resets its counter after you've hit 10. They're definitely better at level 5 than anything else I picked up on Earth in drops.
