I’m wondering how to blog about Charr Week. Sometimes it seems like there is only enough information to justify a single post. Yet they spread out the little they have to update us with over most of the week.
I end up feeling like some kind of marketing tool, reblogging what little there is to talk about.
Don’t get me wrong, The Artistic Origins of the Charr is pretty interesting, but, hardly enough content for me to comment on.
I also await their charr starting area video eagerly.
Yet, we’ve seen a lot of Arenanets iterative process, read tons of blog posts, and seen plenty of the charr before. They’re in Prophecies and Eye of the North.
I think, for me, this is very similar to why I don’t often blog about Star Wars: The Old Republic updates. I know what Jedi are, I don’t need to pontificate about them.
On a professional level, if I were to ever become interested in working in the game industry, these posts are wonderful. Very illuminating and enlightening on just what artists, designers, programmers go through to get from point A to point B. Even if getting into that line of work is just a nice fantasy, it is fascinating.
On a gamer level, I’m not interested in what has come before. I’m interested in what is to come, what I’ll be doing, playing, and spending my time on.
Still, we could have absolutely nothing to talk about. That would be a lot worse. And I like the work of all 3 artists. So there’s that.
