I hope this game turns out to be as awesome as people say, but it really seems like most people who say goods things have just fallen in the big ball of hype rolling down the mountain. Much like many other hyped up games previously released. No open beta to see for myself sucks, it means I have to trust people from the internet... ugh... or even worse... Review websites... uuuugh.

Sadly, PC demo's have been a dying breed... Though while an 'open beta' isn't quite the same thing, it's much worse in some cases, as it's still in a beta state... Why try to convince people on the fence with a broken game?

The trend, and it makes a lot of sense, has been to offer a limited trial post launch... It makes sense in a financial way - A large enough group of 'on the fence' people will buy it because there is no demo/trial at launch, and people aren't patient... It makes sense in an effort way, because the people working on it, in crunch time, no less, are too busy to add an alternative that won't pay for their red bull addictions ; )

My suggestion/advice, is to wait until there is a trial, and there will be one... It may not be for six months, but GW2 is hardly a game where that's going to matter much; what with not having an end game and an easy learning curve...
