Guild Wars 2 Died for Your Sins
As you are undoubtedly aware, the Guild Wars 2 preorder pre-purchase prepay “beta” is up this weekend for those wanting to reserve their limited edition digital goods before the price drop. I have been following the trajectory of this game through its development with a fully cocked eyebrow, and a default expression of “Impress me.” Indeed, I have been openly skeptical over some of its more miraculous claims, although I have been surprised before.
But you know what? I have been in the Doubting Thomas peanut gallery for long enough. So let’s send this Jesus game through its paces starting on Good (Enough) Friday.
As a baseline, this is what I am expecting:
- Good graphics/UI
- Lots of circle-strafing
- Bugs (it’s still presumably a beta)
- Warhammer 2.0 vis-a-vis public quests,
- Fun and/or amusement in some quantifiable amount
If you are weary of endless GW2 reporting or simply don’t care about the game all that much, buckle up. Come Monday, I will have some impressions just for you.
P.S. I will probably be rolling on the Yak’s
Ass Bend server. Because why the hell not.
