    But.. because the shirts came true... does that mean we were lied to by Arenanet?  I mean, if they knew exactly when they would announce the release date, but instead said they would announce it when they felt the game was at a stage where it was ready...

    Asura... Guardian? I can't decide!

    But you bet your ass there will be an MMORPG guild in there on day 1! Which is likely 8/25 for pre-order folks!

    count me in:) 

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    That's what I was thinking about. With an August 28th release date, that puts pre-paid 3 day head starters at August 25th on a Saturday.
