The GuildNetwork staff has worked tirelessly (and, let's be honest, selflessly) in order to bring their readers an anthology of the best articles that have appeared on GN over the course of the past year. And just in time for St. Patrick's Day!

I'm pretty much a two year old when it comes to my characters in games. They are my toys. Mine alone. No one shall touch them. NO ONE!

Gaming Peripherals – How do you play?
In the world of gaming our computers are everything, much like our car on the road. When it comes to the computer, we like ‘em fast, tough, efficient and top of the line.
