The signup for GW2 beta has ended and according to a retweet by Massively they ended up with a million sign ups. A million!
A lot of people are excited for it and yes it does look good. I think my problem is, and why I lack excitement over it all, Guild Wars itself. I never was that big of a fan of the original but I did play it several times over the years mainly out of a need to play something.
The above video is from The Cynical Brit aka TotalBiscuit. When you want to know about a game before release this is the guy to see. He is funny but thorough.
Did you know Trion has a new game? I didn't until this morning reading it on twitter. For someone who has a gaming blog, I am woefully uninformed at times. End of Nations is an MMORTS. Couldn't appeal to me less. But if that is your thing you should take a look. Given how polished Rift was at launch I can only surmise EoN will be the same.
