The Lincolncast Episode 48: Sea of Ups and Downs

(GW2 talk continues untill 57mins) Trying out another new format this week where we hit all the Guild Wars 2 stuff up front! Firstly, that Sea of Sorrows book is coming out, though I am personally apprehensive about the whole thing. End-of-June updates are the main focus, however, including the new dynamic event scaling system, updates coming to Orr, the custom arena roll-out, Sky Pirates and more! After the 57-min-mark we hit up what we've been playing including Remember Me and The Last of Us before finishing off the show with some thoughts about Microsoft's massive policy changes.

@shinboy630: How would you rate it in terms of the other 2 books?

@pay928: Dunno, not far enough in to really pass judgement. Ree certainly does like her obscure adjectives, though!

I'm still shocked you're reading that thing. Then again, someone has to be there to write a review.

What I'm saying is you're a hero.
