Bobby Stein is the Guild Wars 2 Lead Writer. Before joining ArenaNet in 2005 he wrote preview and strategy pieces for Xbox.com and Nintendo Power, crewed on television shows like 48 Hours, and spent a few years on a Wall St. trading floor. When he’s not busy obsessing over dialogue scripts or voice-over files he spends his time growing an epic moustache. He is also not Mel Tormé.
