I might still be playing this if they did this 5 months ago. Too little too late.

For what it's worth, will be playing Guild Wars 2 until Planetside 2 comes out.

I cannot get enough of GW2.. and I also played the PS2 beta.. a good bit. Having said that, I find that PS2 feels rather, blah. I LOVE FPS's and i LOVE large scale FPS's.. but there's something about PS2 that doesn't feel right, nor does the game give me a reason to jump back in the beta

I will also add that in TOR, around level 35 ish.. I started getting infuriated with the amount of identical quests, and identical gameplay. Also, the CONSTANT back and forth to my main quest hub and the long runs that took. Hit the max level and despite being a prior hardcore WoW raider and being in the same WoW guild that xferred to TOR.. I had NO desire to raid or run flashpoints.. nothing in the game gripped me or made me want to log in. I actually just stopped logging in one day.. just didnt care any longer.

Now after playing GW2 to 80.. and seeing everything this game has and does.. I couldn't ever play another game that's "less" of a game than this. GW2 has spoiled me rotten.

Absolutely loving the game, and looking forward to jumping online as soon as I get some more free time. The thing is, I never feel like I'm getting behind in content/gear/progression. I just love how I can pretty much just do anything in the game, and get rewarded for it. I went exploring last night in the 2nd Norn area (I'm Asura) and found a jumping puzzle in the middle of some cave, and got some cool loot. However, it was more about the content than the reward..cant say that about other games.

I absolutely love this game.. love it.

I am glad that Anet is keeping the GW environment idiot free. It's a great game, and I want the community to be as good as the game is.

Having said that- some people are reporting being banned by going AFK in big Dynamic Event areas and just collecting XP for doing nothing. Intentional or not, I like seeing Anet take a quick stance. Hopefully it all gets resolved without issue on the user end if it's a legit mistake.

I'd be curious to know the actual population difference, if any, that WoW has gone and will undergo due to the gem of a game that is Guild Wars 2.
Of course, how much staying power GW2 has remains to be seen.. but so far, it's amazing.

NetQuake or GTFO!

1. 3 Wave CTF/Thunderwalker CTF
2. Tribes
3. Wolf:ET
4. CS
5. UT

Those should be the top 5 FPS's for everyone.. choose your own order.
-----------
Wondering if this new CS will be a good time waster when i'm not elbows deep in GW2.

That GW2 preview is god awful! That preview scrapes about 1/90th of what the game has to offer, hell.. just the description of the classes is terrible and in no way represents the game.. wow, that is horrid across the board, not to mention shallow as hell.
Boo that website!

Quite a damn fun game across the board! I love the WvWvW PvP, the SPvP and all the little things done right in both of those areas.. hell, just having the whole learning zone for PvP is awesome!
I didn't much like the Sylvari starting area (found it confusing a bit), but I LOVED the Asura starting zone, so awesome.

GW2 might be the only MMO/RPG/class-based anything where I take all 8 classes to max level.. I just enjoy the classes and zones that much. The content, all the nooks and crannies to explore (that's another thing- this is the first game I've played where I WANT to explore everything and not just race to the end).. so much love for this game

I am a veteran MMO player, and between GW2 and PS2.. my gaming is set for a LONG while.. happy boy over here!

I can't believe how many of you fuckers are in the technical test atm. You realize of course I'm going to shoot you all in the face once I'm in.

If I WAS in it.. could I talk about it now that it's over? Or could I just make stuff up here and say it's all made up and then talk away?None of you would care..right?

From what I'm hearing..ahem...
there are a lot of clipping/rendering problems and a good amount of people that couldn't even play the game due to a ntdll.dll issue that hosed up stuff with AV clients.

Otherwise, I heard it's very fun.. ahem.

Interplay all but dead, taking down Black Isle Studios with it.

id Software sells to Zenimax/Bethesda and releases a console game with a sloppy PC port.

Epic totally whored out to the dude-bro console crowd on Xbox Live.

Bioware swallowed up by EA, now putting out nothing but watered down crap.

Blizzard merges with Activision and puts out Diablo 3: RMAH

I miss the late 90's. It's not hard to see why independent developers are where the good games are coming from.

Well said

Well, I am convinced!

My coworker, and avid gamer himself said the game is "meh" and he's only playing it off and on when he's bored and has nothing else to do. Like most, he's just killing time til GW2 comes out. To which he said "after playing the GW beta, and TSW, I can't enjoy TSW because of everything it lacks compared to a better MMO" -paraphrasing.

"This oneís been around for a while now. Iíve been awaiting it patiently too. Love that itís got Coop, but was bugged to no end that they choose to only have two players Coop vs. three players. To me that made no sense at all because there are three classes to play as. I even posted that on their forums, but got the typical answer of this is how it was designed. Why didnít they think of this while designing it in the first place is my question?"

Very good question, and I cannot believe that with 3 classes, this wasn't the absolute obvious way to go about things? I would assume that 3 classes would be the obvious standard.

Have we, as educated gamers (most of us veterans here span 1-2 decades of highly-knowledgeable online PC gaming experience) been wrong in the majority about what will happen to a dev house once they make "large change X"?

Everything all of us here predicted over the years, has sadly come true...and not for the betterment of the franchise/title/studio

Makes me wonder if the wallets backing these studios need to hear from us somehow.
