Guild Wars: Hearts Of The North Out

By Quintin Smith on November 19th, 2010.

And we all know what happens after the cermony, don't we? The grind.

Have you HEARD? ArenaNet’s started releasing free content updates for Guild Wars under the title of Guild Wars Beyond, updates that are gently guiding the world through the events preceding Guild Wars 2.

The second of these updates, Hearts of the North, landed yesterday. It tells the story of the romantic and legal union of “the greatest heroes of Ascalon, Gwen and Keiran Thackeray” and even ends in a ceremony and “festivities”. Full details can be browsed on the official site, including info on all the accompanying pay-for tuxedos and dresses. £5 gets you a tux, dress or ladytux, and, bizarrely, £7 allows you to dress up in the same clothes as the bride and groom themselves. Now, I have all the social intelligence of a wounded badger, but surely that’s a faux pas.

Cuddle Your Cube

By John Walker on October 11th, 2007.

So this is weird. Tonight, in a fit of madness and love, I emailed Valve’s over-harrassed PR wunder-human to demand that they immediately begin manufacturing a Weighted Companion Cube plush toy to add to their range. (While over there, I spotted a prototype Hunter plushie, which was all kinds of cute). And then I find they’ve already confirmed it, via the least official means possible.

PC Gamer report that an email from Gabe Newell was posted on Penny Arcade’s forum, assuring him that cuddly cubes will be out before Christmas. Or as I prefer to put it to everyone who loves me, in time for Christmas.

So if a forum post linked via a blog post (for a magazine that appears to have completely THIEVED our guide for getting That Song from your files without crediting us at all – I’d assume they sourced it from elsewhere as is hugely likely, but then I’d not be able to feel self-righteous) is true, hip-hip: hooray!

Now, the question remains, will they be making plush incinerators?
