Another 24 hours in Guild Wars 2 [Feature] – World vs. World (IncGamers)

IncGamers: I spent the first three hours creating my character.

That’s not an exaggeration: the first time I logged into Guild Wars 2, I was so overwhelmed by options I alt-tabbed to Skype and cried. I sat there for an hour trying to decide what race, what gender, and what class to be. Then – once I’d made my decisions – I started fiddling with the psychotically detailed sliders that define your character’s face to within a millimetre of your specifications. What sort of depraved maniac thought a “length of nose bridge” slider was a good idea? Why is that even an option? But it’s there, so I have to adjust it until it’s just so.

Having done all of this, I promptly changed my mind about race and class and started the whole process again. And then, while deciding on my character’s backstory after finally getting everything else set in stone – or set in cold, unfeeling data, anyway – I alt-tabbed for so long that the game disconnected me.

It took me three hours from booting the program before I fireballed my first centaur in the face. And no, I’m not sure why there’s a mutant Minnie Mouse as a character creation choice either. (Guild Wars 2, PC)
