Guild Wars 2 Weekly

Guild Wars 2 Weekly banner

After a couple of weeks of downtime we are back with a new and improved Guild Wars 2 Weekly! There is still work to be done, but I thought I would present this work-in-progress to you guys for a test drive. This is part of an ongoing effort to help the community to stay on top of interesting new Guild Wars 2 content without having to visit a hundred sites individually or setting up all those RSS feeds. We will also go through everything so that the list only contains original content, and try to list things as close to the horse’s mouth as possible (e.g. you will not find fifty entries reporting the latest ArenaNet blog post here). The list consists of various fansites, podcasts, YouTube channels and blogs as well as some more mainstream news outlets. As many reputable ones as we could find in fact. If I have missed any, just drop me a PM, and I will be more than happy to add them! :)
