The Next Guild Wars 2 Killer?

Guild Wars 2 has been amassing popularity at an alarming rate due to the presence of closed beta. Since Press have garnered quite a lot of positive feedback for the game people are becoming more intrigued with the game. I mean there are a lot of us who have been interested from day one, but there are still people who have never heard of it.

As the Dust Settles

I've been recently pondering what really will happen with Guild Wars 2. Through beta, release and the rest. I've started to wonder how it will turn out. I have sort of half of my brain thinking it's going to take the MMORPG market by storm and the other half a bit perplexed. I think that through all the praise and dedication I've given to ArenaNet and Guild Wars 2 respectively there has to be some sort of disconnect.

Guild Wars 2 World vs World

Wow. ArenaNet, and more specifically Mike Ferguson, dropped a brain rattling blog post today about the large-scale PvP combat in Guild Wars 2. World vs World, where three whole servers will be fighting across four maps, is going to be one massive ordeal. Two weeks of keep capturing, castle sieges, supply escorting goodness. I'm going to sift through some of the content in the ArenaNet blog post. There really was so much stuff there that I just have to get off my chest.

Guild Wars 2 Press Video

Success. It appears that those participating in the press beta this coming weekend will in fact be able to film, or TotalBiscuit at least. But I'm assuming they are all allowed to film if desired.

I think writers like Lewis B from Tap-Repeatedly might not be filming, it makes sense. They are writers and not youtubers. But this is great news, as we can finally get some really good 1080p footage of Guild Wars 2 in all it's glory. No more shaky hand cams from the convention floor. And like I've said before a much more in-depth look at the game

And yes the NDA is still applied, so no information until Monday unfortunately. But we are only 5 days away people, let's get that hype flowing once again.

Ramble Complete.

Guild Wars 2 Press Beta

The great warhorns have flaunted across twitter, press revealing that they have in fact been invited to beta. If you are unaware of this as of now check either Reddit or the Guru forums. Some have also gone to say that they will be releasing information about their time with the beta on February 20th. This is going to be a gruesomely long 17 days my friends.
