No, I don't have shares in this game... But the pre-orders have been announced for April 10, and they will include access to the beta weekend events. Beta events weekends. I dunno. Here is more info.

I am really looking forward to this game. I think it has a sort of steampunk fantasy atmosphere... and there shall be pirates... Hmm.

It is definitely both Steampunk and Fantasy and so I'm sure playing this game will inspire us.

Now before you all dismiss me as a freaky guild wars fangirl (which I am not. Not really.) just watch this video of the Engineer class. It is unlike any class in an mmo as far as I am concerned. It is unlike any mmo currently available. But even if it is not, this little video of a beta thingy will show you how polished and awesome it looks. I bet it plays awesome too.

So jealous.  I pre-ordered on Amazon months ago, but apparently they're not doing the beta invites for Amazon.  :(

Guild meetup.  I like to think that the characters have no idea that this is a beta and that they will be deleted.

The game play is very very nice :) I never get bored. There are dynamic events, which happen at random. So when ever you are just running around, you can run into a big boss fight. And everyone who helps out is rewarded, based on their work. So you never have to wait around to kill a boss.

what type of character are they then?

The 'tree people' are sylvari. They look like plants and trees and are born from trees. I think. The little guys are asura. They are clever and annoying, and full of themselves. They're geniuses though. They make golems, or robots, and weapons and stuff.

We picked an asura thief (Five in his hooded outfit) and an asura engineer (me in the outfit with the pistol). Our sylvari were a guardian (mine, with the shield and staff) and a ranger (Five, whose character also got a pet).


The guild we belong to: iSpy.



an action shot of world vs world vs world. This is where three servers are pitted against each other, where you can storm keeps and castles... and get eaten by a shark (I was...)

The only thing that made me irresolute is the firearm. They look more like automatic weapon than weapon hard to reaload.

But eat by a shark! that's crazy :D

:D

So in about 15 hours our headstart starts on Guild Wars 2. If you're interested and want to play it, and are looking for a friendly guild, check out Thievery Corporation/iSpy, which is an awesome guild on the Aurora Glade server (European server).

We have our characters at level 80 now. I am sure you can guess that's why we have not been as active on Steamhawke as before.

We're still playing, but I think we'll be able to balance it more with writing here.

Shortcut to Disaster will be the place where you can read about our adventures in Tyria.
