Guild Wars 2 - Back with a bang (HookedGamers)

HookedGamers writes: "The year 2005 was an awe inspiring one for the European MMORPG scene. World of Warcraft was released in February of that year, and only two months later, Guild Wars saw the light of day. Although initially a WoW player myself, I soon got tired of spending 75% of my playtime running around doing random drop quests with such low drop rates that one would be more likely to find a half digested electric guitar in a wild boar than a Zhevra hoof on a dead Zhevra. I also felt that, with having a full-time job and training to be a pilot in my free time, I simply didn’t play the game enough to justify paying a monthly fee for it. Still, I wanted to play an MMO with my friends, many of whom didn’t live in Iceland. Guild Wars was exactly what I was looking for.

Now Guild War 2 is in the making and after seeing the game in action at this year’s GamesCom, my excitement has been quadrupled." (gamescom, Guild Wars 2, PC)
