*Official* Guild Wars... Who's Coming? [56K maybe]
« on: April 22, 2005, 08:41:33 AM »

Picked up my pre-order box at futureshop yesterday,  I'm pretty excited about this game.  Anyone else planning on playing it?

For anyone who lives under a rock and hasn't heard of it yet: Link

I just might, the no monthly fees is very enticing.

No monthly fee yes,
But you will have to pay for expansions, for any new content.

I'm fine with that. I'm sure it's not going to be more than fees people pay for 2 or 3 months. I still win :)

I played Guild Wars on a free weekend beta test.  It was alot of fun and the interaction with NPC was impressive.  All in all a good game with lots of class options.  I'm sure I'll pick it up in the future.

hahaha, I woke up at 6am before work to get it going.

Level 4 Ranger/Necromancer after 2.5 hrs of play. I even have a pet :D

Initial impressions:

This game rocks. Comparing this to WoW, I played through the WoW beta and the lag just kills that game. Not sure if that is the case now anymore, but last I heard it is there. Zero lag so far in GW.

I'm running this on a P4 2.4 @ 3.0Ghz, 1GB ram, MSI GF5900U 256MB. All settings are turned to the max. Area transistion is pretty smooth and load times are quick. One thing they did I really liked is that minimize button. Most of the time, when you run a full screen game, the minimize (alt-tab) takes quite a while to kick in. GW feels like you just minimized a window on your desktop. Starting/exiting the game is surprisingly fast also.

The landscape is gorgeous, especially at high details, 4X AA :P The controls are easy to manage, so for the people who may not me mmorpg pros (like me), this game is easy to get into.

Link: My name on there is Faith Bloodmoon, I'll see if I can catch you later on tonight. Gonna check out how I can go about making a GT guild or something, everyone's invited :D

Here are some screens:









Edited your title to reflect the changes, hope that is ok :)

Also, for people who didn't pre-order, you have to wait till 12:01AM on 4/28 to play.
