@Doctalen They stated at some point that anyone who could run the original guild wars could run guild wars 2... as in, they were guaranteeing a graphics setting that would accommodate old machines.

@Luftwaffles

What they said specifically was that if you can run GW1 on max settings, you can run GW2 on minimum.

Heh, makes me feel kinda bad for Turbine. I was looking forward to trying out the DDO expansion and seeing what big news they had in store for LOTRO, but it seems that GW2's beating them to the punch.

Oh well. This game's been. 5 years in the waiting for me and I've got a lifetime LOTRO account, Middle Earth can wait :)

I'm trying to get a new gaming PC by 2013 but I doubt it'll happen. I can't even play the Age of Conan game on anything higher than low without getting a shitty FPS from what I recall. I'm REALLY looking forward to this though but it's a shame I can't play it. I mean I may be able to on low but I want to have it look decent.

@Doctalen Guild wars 2 isn't going for graphics like AoC is. The developers have in the past stated that they sometimes use hard to find graphics cards for their testing purpose. Arenanet is going for style graphics and so they games look better than a game going for total realism.

I can still see darkmoon coming in yelling vaporware ...

Jokes aside ... THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR since I first heard about the game about 2 years ago. It is soo hard to believe it's actually happening :D

Nah, in before Grail comes in being negative nancy and telling us how we are all fools for getting hyped. Or picking at some detail.

I am also imagining the drama between massively's staff if NCsoft only gives 1 press beta key for the entire staff. Bet Rubi pulls seniority and claims it :)

I am looking forward to this game. Hopefully like every game before it it won't turn into a wow player troll fest that Massively is becoming famous for. Enough "wow clone" or "not innovative" posts for other games already. To be honest everything I read about GW2 has been PR type posts and not actual game play related.

@(Unverified) Apparently you haven't read much. Tons of gameplay articles, not to mention videos on youtube and play-by-plays of everyone who's gotten their hot little hands on the game, including non-press at conventions.

you might want to look around then because the innovations (and there's a lot of them) for GW2 are very well documented.

Don't think I will preorder the CE been burned to many times in the past with them and this game carries more risk then many other MMOs, AAA budget while trying to deviate from what most think is the norm for MMOs (wow style themeparks). The game will either be a big success or most likly a modarate hit.

Whatever happens its great that a public beta is not to far off and we can finnaly get an idea as to what to expect from the game. Heres hoping it lives up to the hype unlike certain other games.

"In February we'll invite select press to participate in beta testing,"

I imagine Rubi may have let out a whoop of joy for this bit. Looks like us peasants have to wait a little longer though Should be worth it though.

Don't suppose you have any jobs going at the Massively towers? Short term say for the month of February :)

@Balraw Oh yeah, Rubi should get invited! :D
And she shall speak about the immense adventures she fas on GW2 while we drool for a couple of months that will seem to be larger than the past 4 years.

Go Rubi! Feb is near, hope you can talk a little about it :O

@Daeths Which is why I said "Hope you can talk a little about it." :P
But idk, why make a press specific beta without them being able to say anything?

Either way, we won't get GW2 in our hands anytime soon. :(
