I've really been enjoying the game so far. I love the fact that you don't have to constantly run back and forth picking up and turning in quests. It lends itself very well to a fun, free-form kind of gameplay. For once, you're actually encouraged to go out of your way to go see something.

Yeah, this game is a completionist's and achievement whore's dream. I love the way they reward exploring and it just blows my mind how they make everything you do and everything that happens around you SO ORGANIC. I've never seen shit like this before. I'm only level 10, but I've been enjoying it quite a bit so far. I haven't even tried WvWvW yet and AndChiefs says it's really fun.

You can tell they want to make it as un-grindy as possible - killing mobs gives you like no xp but helping people in all kinds of ways and participating in world events is just a windfall of xp.

so I caved and went out and got windows 7. I quickly installed it on my mac through bootcamp. I pre-purchased GW2 and tried to download the client. Of course it won't work, it downloads Gw2setup.exe, I double click that and a screen with guild wars 2 on it pops up and it says its downloading and stops at 10125kb, then just closes and disappears like nothing happened and won't launch the launcher.

So now I'm thinking I didn't install windows right, it seemed to easy honestly. So now I printed out a big guide, tried to update drivers for bootcamp but I can't, I go through the apple site and the downloads just show up in weird symbol text.

So I don't know, I made a big mistake wasting $200 on windows if I can't get it installed right. Why does it always have to be difficult

well it only took 12 hours for me to download, was able to play when I woke up this morning at least. I have no idea what I'm doing, lol. The game seems pretty deep, which is nice. The game runs like a top on my mac!

You are talking to the wrong people.

Most are adults, they do not chat in open chat. They play while watching sportss on the bigscreen.

The vocal group is the kids/tweens..

BTW, the voice acting is brutal in this game. Not a biggie, but every cut scene makes me cringe.

LOL, yeah, I noticed that too.

Killed my 1st world boss (Shadow Behemoth in the Queensdale swamp) - that was a pretty epic fight that ended up in a big ass chest being spawned. It contained 2 greens and 3 blues in it. BTW, why the **** did ArenaNet have to switch the colors from the now almost-standard MMO "green --> blue ---> purple" hierarchy?

Also, the crafting looks to be ****ing crazy. Almost too much work at first glance.

The crafting isn't all that complicated. It's harder to explain than to actually do, so I recommend just going through the guide posted above and trying it. I think you'll find that reading the guide makes it sound complicated, but once you do it, it's pretty straightforward. It gives really good XP and you don't have to grind anything. I've been enjoying it so far. It's not as good as SWG's system, but it's better than any other MMO's that I've seen recently.

Also, ArenaNet will be hosting launch events on Saturday, Sept. 1st, in Seattle, Austin, Orlando, New York, and Los Angeles. Can I get a booyah from my Austin homies?
