One of TWO beta access codes for Guild Wars 2!

Ok, here’s how I think this thing works, according to what I read on the GW2 site and my experience with my own GW2 beta code entry. You put the code in at the URL provided, which puts you into their beta access pool. You might get to play this weekend, or you might get into one, any, or all of the future beta access weekends. If this is incorrect, please let me know and I’ll post the correction ASAP, but I haven’t gotten an answer from the question I asked on Twitter,  so I’m making an educated guess and hoping I land somewhere that borders reality!

PLEASE DO NOT ENTER if you’re already in the GW2 beta pool (pre-orders are guaranteed beta access at some point) or if you won’t be able to play during this or any upcoming beta weekend. This weekend’s beta starts at 12:00pm (noon) Pacific on Friday, April 27 and ends at 11:59pm Pacific on Monday, April 29.

Remember, there are TWO codes up for grabs here, and there will be TWO winners. Good luck!!

Woohoo, congrats to Paul and John!! Emails containing your respective codes are on their way to you as we speak!

Stay tuned, guys — there are plenty more giveaways to come!

One of TWO beta weekend access and mount codes for TERA!

Please note that this beta starts at 12:00pm (noon) Pacific on Friday, April 20 and ends at 11:59pm Pacific on Monday, April 23. If you won’t be able to play in the beta weekend, please step aside and let folks who will actually *use* the code have a better chance at actually *winning* the code. 🙂

Remember, there are TWO codes up for grabs here, and there will be TWO winners. Good luck!!

Updated to add: We were told on the show floor that your beta character will carry over when the game is launched! You won’t lose your progress — or the sweet mount. 😉

WINNERS!! Congrats to Dusty and DragonGem! Your codes should be arriving in your inboxes shortly. 😀

Check back soon when I post more giveaways for in-game goodies and beta access keys!

Another year, another PAX East come and gone…

We had a pretty good time this year, and didn’t really feel pressured to cram in as many panels as possible like the first year, or to demo all the games we could like last year. 🙂 We got to see friends, old and new, and had some incredible food (Pasta Beach, I’m lookin’ at you).

The swag for day 3 was pretty slim…I went by the Chessex booth — yes, again — and snagged another bag of D20s. I got a Penny Arcade shirt on our way out of the expo hall; it has a D2o on it, “1” side up, with “I feel shame as a minor action.” XD I did manage to snag another Secret World beta weekend code, another tauntaun pet code for SWTOR, and a handful of limited edition artifact codes for Novus Aeterno. I will be giving codes away in the coming days with some sorts of contests or something, so watch my Twitter feed!

I strolled through the tabletop area while looking for Green Armadillo and saw these crazy little wooden semicircles called Skallops. You can get a kit that includes gobs of the little doohickeys and a deck of cards; you connect the cards with the Skallops and let your imagination run free! The inventor (which of course was some guy in his early 20s, hehe) was manning the booth, and he gave a mighty good pitch. They were making hats (one guy even made a neat crown), skyscrapers, and all kinds of crazy stuff. Plus, he was using Square to take payments, and that made the booth even more awesome! Here, take the money! TAKE IT!!

Here’s an album of the pics I took, and here are the pics specifically from our Saturday night tweetup. I’m the world’s worst at remembering names, so if you guys can help me fill in some of the blanks, I’ll be your BFF. 🙂

Got back a few minutes ago from our awesome tweetup. It was great to see everybody again and meet some new folks too!

Here’s today’s loot haul:

  • Another Tera beta key
  • Copy of World of Tanks with codes for 2100 gold, 2000 gold, and a 1-month premium account
  • 4 Jet Set Radio buttons
  • Neverwinter beta key
  • Zelda: Skyward Sword comic
  • Rohto eye drops sample and coupon (Srsly?)
  • Shoot Many Robots loot codes for a freeze ray and a tutu
  • 4 Shoot Many Robots buttons
  • A couple other tiny buttons from random booths

Tomorrow’s the last day, and I think we want to take one more spin around the show floor. I kinda wanted to see the “How to Make Gaming Sites that Don’t Suck” panel, but it’s at 10am and I doubt I’ll be conscious. XD

PS – I’ll upload pics when I can get them off my phone and onto my PC at home. 🙂
