Did your mom not hug you as a child?

Nice one, fanboi. Don't make me call your mom and have her cancel your preorder. Now that I think of it, I still owe her $20 for that last "massage".

Not only do you get to test their game for free so they can skimp on QA, you also now pay full box price for the privilege.

Waiting for a real demo of this game. Don't plan to pay full price to try it.

Kinda sucks that it's two weeks away but I'm glad we finally have a date for it.

That said, WOOT! No character wipe. Holy wow!

Yaaaawwwwwn...

We'll see how I feel in a week, but currently, I'm not having withdrawals... Who knows though... When I bang my head against the 'Inferno wall' in D3, maybe I'll want to take a break ; )

Hit 60 last night on the Wizard... Just need to finish the rest of Act IV.

I can't wait. Tried playing Tera for a bit, but it pales in comparison to GW2. Yeah, the combat is good, but the rest of the game is so WoW-cookie-cutter it bored me to tears. I love the pick up quests in GW2, the lack of competition for monsters (Exp and loot for all!) and the difference all that makes in the community.

You damn skippy! However I won't be catching Prometheus till after the weekend so I can see a matinee and avoid the crowds. However, I am down with the sickness! BTW nin, that's the new thing for describing GW2 hype...being down with the sickness.
