Just curious if anyone was going to give Guild Wars 2 a try?
No, but Diablo III will be out soon!!!
Wasn't that impressed with Nightfall, I probably won't..
However I do plan on giving D3 a shake..
In case you folks weren't aware, Diablo 3 Open Beta is available this weekend!
I will be doing D3 this weekend. I've already had a chance to play GW2, and will pick up a copy when it releases, since it doesn't require a subscription fee. I may not do much more than wander around the cities/landscape looking at everything.
I was not aware. Thanks!
Yep. Soon as I finish this semester, I'm all over GW2. It will be the first MMORPG to draw me back to the genre since UO.
I bought the Collectors Edition.
If it can run on Linux and I have a spare body to play games with then I will hehehe.
Seriously though, I'd love to try it if I get time. Currently working my way through a stack of Humblebundle games though, so what gaming time I have is going there right now. I'm falling behind on them badly as it is lol.
Well, looks like a few people from UO will try Guild Wars 2. I have per-ordered and am looking forward to playing. This will be my first serious attempt to play another MMORPG other than UO. I guess time will tell if it can hold my attention for 13 years like UO has.
If GW2 is going to be ran like Aion has been, there is no way I'll try it. D3 sounds like fun though =)
I just went to their site, I remembered watching the trailer, It was still pretty awesome to watch again, even for the second time. I can't run EC correctly, so I doubt that would be any better. A problem I have is 'advertising' and 'concept' art being different from the actual in-game experience. (EA does it too, is why I'm leery).
There seems to be a lot of differences in game mechanics, some very interesting. Tab/Space bar for enemy selection is one, guessing they don't have 25-30 fire ants in a small area all frame skipping? I don't PVP, but I might be very tempted if I played as they seem to have some nice optionsthere as well.
Divinity's Reach is just about every bit as beautiful as some of the art/screenshots indicate.
The first screenshots I saw of Divinity's Reach from GW2, I thought that if you could upgrade UO to that, you'd have a million+ people playing the game, easily, if not more.
Guild Wars 2 will be a no for me... Diablo 3 will be a yes though.
Diablo 3 looks good, but what I find really interesting is the real currency auction house Blizzard has setup. I wonder how long before other companies follow.
watched some of the You Tube city tours and a walk-through, user made stuff, quite stunning and mesmerizing
GW2 is a maybe...D3 is a for sure....
I tried the D3 Beta weekend, and was only able to get in a few times and than the lag was so bad I could hardly move--and I have a pretty good computer. GW2 has its open Beta this Friday, so it will be interesting to see how that goes.
I was excited for d3 until I tried the beta. Not so excited now. It seems fun still, but it seems to lack a lot of customization, which was one of my favorite parts of d2. I'll probably pick it up, but only once it goes on sale on steam or something.
Customization was deliberately restricted on D3 this weekend.
I had a lot of fun with it. I didn't get a chance to get out of the darker areas though, there are some parts of the map that I really want to see.
How has this thread not been moved to Off-Topic yet?
Both my hubby and I will be playing the upcoming weekend beta event & beyond. I, like Syrus, haven't been this excited about an MMO since UO & being a part of GW2 on the day it launches is icing on the cake for me - making it all the sweeter.
Bella, don't forget preorders get a 3 day head start. I just updated my video card so I hope I do not have the same problem with GW2 as I did with D3 this past weekend--felt like my char was playing in Jellow...lol.
Yes, thanks everyone for not going Off-Topis!
Once GW2 gets going--if anyone wants to party or start a UO Guild within GW2--hit me up on ICQ (98110980) or here with a PM. Most likely I will try and have a character name of Willard or some version of that.
OH, trust me, I am looking forward to the 3 day head start. I'm even planning on taking some vacation days to enjoy it fully!
From what I understand, Guild Wars 2 was built on lower-end machines and is suppose to be very graphics friendly while still providing the player with wonderful visual effects. Here is what ArenaNet has to say about system requirements:
What are the minimum system requirements for Guild Wars 2?
Our goal with Guild Wars 2 is to have it run on a wide range of Windows gaming PCs.
Windows® XP Service Pack 2 or better • Intel® Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz, Core i3, AMD Athlon 64 X2, or better • 2 GB RAM • NVIDIA® GeForce® 7800, ATI X1800, Intel HD 3000, or better (256MB of video RAM and shader model 3.0 or better) • 25 GB available HDD space • Broadband Internet connection • Keyboard and mouse
And of course you can fiddle with the graphic settings to achieve the best performance for you machine.
That is a really great idea! I've been looking at different guild sites and what they have to offer but have yet to find one that "fits". Being a part of a UO guild within GW2 would really be fantastic! So, if anyone does do this, PM me too please!
They posted the servers/worlds for GW2. I wonder if they are regional--east coast, west coast...and so on? These are the US servers:
Henge of Denravi
Isle of Janthir
Sea of Sorrows
Wow, so far the Beta is pretty Awesome. Can't wait for the release of the full game!
Check Divinity's Reach out if you get a chance.
I would have loved for an 3D Ultima X to look like that.
I've been playing it off and on today and yesterday. Not near as much as I would have liked, as yesterday I had some stuff to do with friends and today I've been unable to log in for a while now and I'm going out again tonight.
But from what I have played, it's really quite fun. Looks absolutely beautiful, and I'm a bit disappointed I haven't been able to wander around any of my favorite areas from GW1 yet. I had just taken a gate to Lion's Arch when I got logged out and haven't been able to get back on since.
Am in the guildwars2 beta.. but at first glance it doesn't seem to bring much noticeable innovative to the genre, in my eyes it just another WoW clone with a twist
