"Watch this video in its entirety, and tell me it doesn't kindle a greater interest in this game." -Ian
This is the email I woke up to this morning. Ian trying to tempt me with Total Biscuit (not amused with the bunny killing) to get me excited about GW2.
After watching the video all I see are dynamic public quests. Oh hey Warhammer Online and Rift. It does, however, seem that GW2 has taken it a step further or Total Biscuit would have us believe. He annoys me this morning. He is just oozing smugness.
Again it is a pretty game but there are two things that stop me getting excited about it. All the weapon swapping and the asshats (kids/teens/very young "adults") that will inevitably play because it is essentially, after the purchase of the game, f2p.
I really do not like needless combat mechanics for the sake of making it "different" or "interesting". I remember before Age of Conan was released Funcom was touting their combat as ground-breaking, etc. It was annoying at best.
Maybe I am just a traditionalist. At any rate, this is my blog. It is not a democracy.
Will I try GW2? I suppose I will eventually. When The Secret World lets me down terribly as it likely will (though a girl can dream).
So here is the Total Biscuit smugness in it's entirety.
