    Is it weird if I watch Guild Wars 2 beta footage in 1080p and full screen as I press buttons and click my mouse to act like I'm playing the game?
    Went to close fullscreen and clicked the 'X' on the current games open window... fff-

    Been following this game off and on for awhile but not completely in the know, this new footage looks amazing, but I was wondering about something that I'm sure has been asked a million times; do I need to play Guild Wars 1 to really "get" this game? Or is it entirely different? I have Guild Wars and all the expansions from a Steam sale last year but don't really like playing them.

    It's a very different game, I wouldn't worry if you don't like it, they've done a lot different in Guild Wars 2.

    Also apparently according to Lewis that's at very low graphics settings as he was having performance issues recording with Fraps. Still doesn't look half bad really.
    Fraps is a performance issue itself.

    Doesn't really matter in this case as this beta build had really bad performance issues.
    Even with a brand new computer, anything above medium would dip you in to single digits FPS in combat.

    This is a known issue, and basically it's a result of them not optimizing the engine for this build, as far as I'm aware.

    Wish there were more people who knew how to play MMO's on these beta videos...instead a bunch of people who don't know shit about the lore and anything about A-Net get access.

    I'm not a huge fan of the majority of MMOs anymore, but when I played the original GW it was the shit.

    I also loved it how you didn't have to own the previous games to get the expansion packs. That was boss.

    Because that was leaked before the partial NDA lift. So it was in direct violation of NDA, and that's a legal offense in certain countries.

    Both Facepunch and the person re-linking them could be in trouble.

    Eye of the North is the only real "expansion pack".

    The rest are technically standalone games that could be combined together.

    I live the life of a male everyday. In any game that allows you to create characters of you own I choose female. The reason for that is because these games allow you to play a life other than your own. You create something that is different and gives you a new experience than you're used to. Not to mention that female characters are more sexually appealing and look better with sharp swords :)

    Finally decide what I'm running: Charr Engi ( Charr because damn I wanted to play one since it's announcement, and Engineer because of the versatility).

    You all will probably see me running around with friends scream TF2 jokes at me 99% of the time...

    All my characters for GW2 are going to be female except for Asura and Charr because I think they sound and look weird. Also to prove that I don't support furries... I think that shit is mental.
    Something is wrong with you.

    How does playing an Asura Female = Furry and Asura Male = No Furry?

    How is something wrong with me when I don't like furries? I know people are going to create charrs just because they think naked animals are sexy. I bet you will see a group of charrs dancing naked in the main cities, or some gay guilds that only allow charr/asura in them.

    Don't get me wrong I love those races. I plan on created several Charr and Asura characters, but those characters won't be females.
    I didn't say its wrong not to like furries, it's completely normal in fact, it's disgusting.

    But what is the difference between an Asura Female, Asura Male and Charr Female, Charr Male, it's both "Furry" if you'd call it that.

    it's funny because they've done a fantastic job of making the female charr totally non-sexualised.

    compare this:



    to this:



    in the latest yogscast video they take off the female charr clothes and it looks exactly how you'd expect a giant bestial female cat thing to look

    That is what I think my characters will turn out as, probably in that order. I think I have a good amount of race variety so I don't get bored with areas back to back.
    But of course, I've changed this list too many times to count.


    Also, the 'surprise' that they are releasing - I hope it's something to do with HoM, and saving names or something.

    Yep. It's one of their racial skills. Most likely an elite.
    They can also turn into other animal forms too.
