So... did you ask them the golden question that you, I and EVERYONE interested in this game wants to know?... you know what I mean... any date beyond "when it's done"?

Other than that, it seems like any fan's dream party, to hang out with the people who made your favorite game while singing silly Rock Band songs.

Sounds like an amazing experience, something that makes people like me, who have never had the privilege to make such an event, wonder in awe. GW2 sounds fun, is the PvE much different from the first? Would also love to hear any Firefall experiences you had, since it had such a big presence at PAX, and looks awesome.

The game deserves to be noticed, they've been quite silent about the game until now and no wonder that they want everyone to know about their spectacular creation. Can't wait to squash some aranhas and anything else that comes in my way in Firefall.

I think it's good that red 5 studios really started promoting Firefall now. Not much people know of the awesome game yet, so it's a really good way to attract more players. I can't wait to play Firefall, it just looks really awesome.

Heh, all those signs you'd think Red 5 is quite determined to get your attention over their game, Firefall, at PAX. They've been quiet for so long, showing some things about the game from here and there starting from when it was first revealed at last year's PAX Prime. They just felt the time was right to take the show big time with this year's PAX Prime. The CEO is even tweeting the link that brought us here.

I'd hope some people directed by the tweet do leave some commenting to GW2, I know some of them are interested in it as well. However me, I am bidding the MMORPG world adieu for Firefall.

Haha, I saw pictures of the Firefall bathroom ads, those were hilarious. Looks like a pretty awesome game too, definitely one to keep an eye on.

I'm excited for GW2 as well. Played and enjoyed the first one and am liking the sound of some of the innovations they're making.

Can't wait to play BOTH of those games :D

I was not able to attend PAX but I did follow Firefall from the distance. It's funny to see that right know everyone talks about them, specially because they've never done any massive marketing campaign yet. I guess that PAX is a very special show for Red5 as they first presented Firefall there and obviously they wanted to have a very good presence this year.

I guess that from now on we'll start to hear more and more about Firefall everyday. The will go from advertising in the bathrooms to very big players number once the game is released. Everyone starts from the bottom, I guess.

I didn't go to PAX, but a good amount of sites were talking about how huge the advertising campaign was for Firefall and another good amount commented about how comfortable the carpet was in their booth. I haven't heard a single bad thing about the game though despite the advertising campaign so that has to say something.

I saw some of the red5 bathroom wallpapers end up on people as costumes in the end, was pretty funny to see :D.

Hope some of you didn't just only check out the advertisement from red5 but the actual game. I had the joy of playing it at GamesCom and had an absolute blast, seeing that pax had added pve and another battleframe. I'm kind of jealous ^^.

I've been waiting for both Firefall and GW2 for months now, and one of them needs to start a beta soon so I can actually try my hand at them.

The amount of detail being put into guild wars 2, is simply astonishing, and I'll be throwing my money at them simply to WALK AROUND in the world they've created.

As for firefall, the focus on the FPS aspect would have me throwing my money at them, except for the fact that it's free. I have beaten borderlands ten odd times simply due to the fact that running around shooting stuff is always a good time.

Having so many sweet games at PAX this year kept my head spinning. It was awesome seeing the SW:TOR feeds as that is one of my most anticipated games by far. Torchlight 2 was also sick as hell. In all the feeds tho FireFall stood out as this years greatest reveal. The game play was captivating and totally sick. Diving into the community was a lot of fun as Devs communicate directly to us! While I am sitting on my hands waiting for the SW:TOR to confirm its release date I will definitely be killing the time in FireFall.

The great thing about this game, is that they intend to cater to the fans of the game. If the fans demand a dungeon, and there is sufficient outcry, then we will get a dungeon. If the fans demand a open pvp lake, then we get that. The Dev's wisely have chosen to cater to what they think we want, instead of catering to thier own foolish desires.

That's right Phobos... I said foolish desires!

Seems like this guy had a mission to check out guild wars 2 and review swag. Kind of lack of review for the star of the show, would have liked more firefall that game will blow guild wars 2 away!
