Guild Wars 2

August 28th, 2012: Guild Wars 2 is coming.  Hard to believe that Tyria will become 200+ years old in the wink of an eye.

I meant to post my first impressions of the last Beta Weekend Event, but sadly I had limited playtime due to real life obligations.  Not to worry, though, I won’t bore you with the details.  My previous post has the 1 1/2-hour video if that’s your cup of tea.

Truly, though, even though my total playtime for that weekend was very short (roughly 2 1/2, 3 hours), I enjoyed myself in Guild Wars 2.  It felt like I was coming home of sorts.  The awesome music was reminding me of good ol’ times in pre-Searing Ascalon.  It was almost like I”d never left.  …Except for being level 1 again.

I will keep my first impressions to this bare minimum since it was so short, but I was really impressed for what little time I played.  I’ll be glad when it’s released and I can get back into that world again, provided I have the time.

Hey folks!

A live stream is about to occur of epic proportions.  You are about to enter Tyria through the eyes… of the Creative n00b.

This live stream will take you through several character creation options in Guild Wars 2 (as I’m one of those who picks through every little detail when making a first toon :-P), and the first little bit of PVE gameplay.

All of this stuff may have already been done before, but there’s still a sense of wonder from seeing how another person did things.

You can find the live stream at my Twitch.TV page: http://www.twitch.tv/seth_oriath

I’ll try to embed it below, but if it doesn’t work, just follow the link above.  Please note, I will NOT have chat open!  I mean no offense by it, just…I’m not a good multitasker.

EDIT: Live stream is over! Recorded video is being uploaded to YouTube as we speak.  The Twitch.TV video can be found here: http://twitch.tv/seth_oriath/b/320829554

I got a beta key.

Yeah, that’s right, I won a beta key from PC Gamer.  I don’t think I can thank PC Gamer enough.  Much love.

No, that doesn’t mean I’m going to snooze on it like I did The Secret World beta. >.>

Yes, that does mean I might be putting off some homework. <.<

Stay tuned; over the weekend, I’ll live stream as much as I can (I’ll at least put the first hour of gameplay up as well as a glimpse of character creation).
