    That was one long article, but I'm glad I read it! GW2 is shaping up to innovate all the things that we don't like about MMO's especially the all to common combat methods (tank n spank), no grinding, and no monthly fee! Can't wait!

    Looks amazing. And judging by the article Guild Wars 2 might have an unique system as well.

    I really need to start playing Guild Wars again. Havent been online in ages.

    Looks great. I played the first one some, but felt it was a little too rough around the edges.

    Very much looking forward to this one.



    To quote random dude from gamespot:

    "if its still the same monstrously lame armor merchant trading system... this game can seriously suck my balls :/"

    Seriously hope they put some actual loot and more unique armors in this one

    Guild Wars trilogy is for $19.99(down from $39.99) on Steam. I have never played Guild Wars so is it worth getting it?

    Yes, it's a lot of fun and no monthly fees! I thoroughly enjoyed singleplayer on all 3 (original, factions, and nightfall) and playing with friends and doing alliance battles and guild battles never gets old to me. Definitely worth it in my book!
