sounds good to me too. my only gripe with the article is that it said it's "free-to-play". if you have to buy it for $'s not free to play..just no subscription. though from the sounds of'll be worth $60.

Free-to-play is oppose to pay-to-play as in monthly fee. The software cost $60 and by the way I pre-purchased and was already in a couple Beta's. Looks good!, plays good to and after the $60 it is free to play online!...:)

EDIT: I know they should say "Subscription free".

pre purchased 3 days heads start ftw!

Yep, 5 days, 3 hours till release of the game, can't wait. And they did mention they might release it earlier by a few hours to make sure everything comes online perfectly by the time its suppose to release.

Though they did not list the one feature I definitely love. Not having to fight people over mobs. No more worrying about who gets the first hit on a mob to get the loot. Everyone who helps kill the mob will get rewarded. Loved in the weekend betas, random people coming together to help each other fight elite mobs or dynamic quest bosses, as well as helping rez people who have fallen. Never having to fight the annoying people who'd run around getting the first hit on all the quest mobs in the area is always nice.

OMG only 5 miserable days left until Guild Wars 2 Nirvana!

SAME HERE! :D I just wish I could have probably picked up the Digital Deluxe Version :S

oh well, all I need is the regular digital version (save some money) and I'll work from there :) I'm ready to support this game <3

Can't wait to start this game up and play with some awesome people. I pre-purchased it after the final stress test when I pretty much couldn't stop watching videos on it though I didn't want to spoil the game once I knew enough about it...BUT I COULDNT HELP MYSELF! ;n; at least I have a better idea about the game and the content :)

I'm going to be Soooo addicted to this >w<

Definitely looks like Guild Wars 2 could get the MMO crowd going again.

TitanUp2779d ago

yeah i haven't been this excited for an mmo in a long time.

the last game i was excited for was aion and that was a huge let down.

dasbeer882779d ago

I hope there is Guild Wars franchise sale on Steam soon.

Already took off from work next weekend and reupped on my herbal medication. Been playing a thief in the betas so far and really diggin it. This game is definitely worth the $60 its asking for. I haven't seen a world on this scale detailed to the extent it is outside of WoW, just exploring and trying to get all the vistas is fucking awesome!

Well it'll definitely be worth the time off :)
Glad to hear you're enjoying that class as well, I still haven't decided upon what class I am going to be playing. I will probably have to try most of them out before making one my main character.

I agree about the 60$ being entirely worth it. I didn't pick up collector/deluxe version as I couldn't justify the cost all that much.

I remember when I thought WoW's world before expansions was huge. It seems like this one is 2-3x bigger if not more and It's going to be freaking fun to explore.
I love the vista mechanic, or at least the idea of it and to be rewarded for it. I am going to be a total completionist in this game it's going to hurt so good.

I can't wait any longer! XD I haven't been this exited for a game for a very long time.

Cheers to everyone who is going to be playing this game :) and enjoy!

Big_Mex2778d ago (Edited 2778d ago )

Agree with everything you said. The cool part is if all you want to do is explore and find vistas you won't be penalized xp wise, probably the best part about this game is you can choose what to do when you want and don't feel like you have to slog through grind quests to gain levels. Also....Keg Brawl!
