LDG has Moved!

You are reading this correctly. We here at Link Dead Gaming are more than pleased to present to you our new fangled, handy dandy website located at www.LinkDeadGaming.com. Some of you have been using that address the entire time, and will see it when you go to where you have always gone, while others of you that visited us through wordpress will find us there. While we love wordpress.com, and all of the things they did for us, there are just certain things we needed that can only be gotten through a wordpress.org site.  We hope to see all the faces over there with us, and hopefully some new ones as well, as we grow bigger and better in order to bring you the best of PC gaming news.

First, I would like to say that I hope you had an enjoyable 3 day weekend, which included Memorial Day, in which if you are so inclined to do so, and I hope you are, you took a moment and gave thanks to those men and women who have put their own safety on the line to ensure that we stay safe, and free, and able to do things like enjoy Video Games. After taking that moment if you did not to recognize their sacrifice, we have some great news for you.

It was announced by ArenaNet today that the next Guild Wars 2 Beta event will be happening starting June 8th at 3pm EST and continuing until June 11th at 3am [source]. They went on to say how much the help given by the community has meant to them, and how happy they are to be getting close and closer to the release of the game. If you have not as of yet, pre-purchase your copy today and join us in the beta!


In yesterday’s post , I spoke about BioWare’s recent layoffs. A part of those layoffs included the senior online community manager, Stephen Reid, a.k.a. Rockjaw. He spoke out on his twitter account about the rumors of him being a part of the layoffs. Sadly he confirmed:

Today my life’s next chapter starts. Lost track of how many chapters so far… but time to turn the page.
I was one of those affected by layoffs at BioWare Austin yesterday. I got to build an amazing team while I was there, and miss them already.
I’m also going to miss #SWTOR and the community we created. Sure, I know some of you hated me, but hey, I still worked hard for you.
I’ll be Twitter-quiet for a bit, but I’ll be back soon-ish. Doing something, somewhere, and talking about it here. I hope we keep talking.
Last but not least: I was quiet for the last couple of weeks because I was full-on devoted to #SWTOR character transfer. It’s still coming!
Now I’ve got to go, because you don’t want to see a grown man cry on Twitter. Also, I don’t know the emoticon for it.
Don’t lose faith. They’re still devoted to making a great game.
It’s a wide-open space right now. Big, full of possibilities, and scary as hell. Thanks for everything guys.

What does this exactly mean for BioWare Austin’s restructuring plan? How did Stephen Reid fit? Many of these questions may never be answered. All know is: Losing your job is never easy, nor do some employees deserve it. Rest assured, Link Dead Gaming will be covering more of this story on Friday’s Podcast.


Today, Link Dead Gaming is proud to announce and unveil its first of many changes on the way. After more of a wait then I thought possible, our new Logo has arrived, and we can all quit flinching at the horrible logo that I designed myself with Gimp. Keep in mind that this is just the first of the changes that will be taking place, and the others should be rolling out soon.
