    whats GS is this? ^ its craft and what its call ..some 1 knows??

    If it's the same one as in the screen below, it was a Personal Story Reward.

    When you take a screen shot, it adds info to the chat window telling you were the shot was saved and what the filename is. In this case, this screen shot captured the info on the previous screen shot. The screenshot folder can hold up to 999 shots, then you need to move those images elsewhere and start the number sequence over again.

    Running through the snowy northlands actually made me feel cool on a hot summer day.

    Whats impressive to you guys?

    Not trolling, just wanted to know who thinks these graphics are good?

    Honestly alot is missing in translation, and i'm not sure those SS's are full graphics turned on.

    The game is gorgeous and some screen shots are works of art, while others are just a peek at the game and game play. IMO, no current MMO beats the aesthetics of GW2. That's a subjective opinion, but I actually have an art background and I can say that objectively the game is top notch.

    GW2 has an optional setting for depth of field and edge enhancement which looks great in game and actually seems to enhance frame rates, but translates poorly in normal resolution screen shots. I included normal resolution screen shots with the interface visible, even though I knew the quality would appear less than during actual game play, because it's easier to catch ongoing game play that way and I realize that some people want to see the game in action with the ui.

    I guess I'll turn the question back on you. How could you think the game looks anything less than good, even with a competative bias preventing you from admitting the game looks great? Why post as you did if it isn't meant to be something other than an honest contribution to the thread? To many, your question might just quantify you as someone with a bad eye for aesthetics or such a deep bias that they can't see the obvious. In short, I just don't get your post.

    Why not post screen shots of your own game of choice in the appropriate forum, for those who might appreciate it? Rather than coming here trying to question the obvious? The game looks great and to most that's pretty obvious.

    What's impressive??! Plenty and your right, these SS probably arent even pushing their gpu and its looking great.  Cant wait till GW2 truly uses our GPU.

    That sword's an environmental weapon I found, has a nice frost animation. That character's a human necro (see the face paint), so I wouldn't be able to wield a real greatsword anyway.

    The screenshots don't do justice to the real game. I can certainly say that my screenshots didn't have high quality graphics, or even all the graphics options enabled, but even at medium settings some of the scenery in game was breathtaking.

    A GW2 screenshot thread has nothing to do with TSW. You can debate that issue over in the TSW forum. You shouldn't have any trouble finding screnshots to make comparisons, over there. Hopefully you'll make honest comparisons, but that's neither here nor there. This isn't a "compare game x to GW2" thread, so please take it elsewhere.

    This one gives me a chuckle. "Are you sure we shouldn't stop and ask for directions"?

    First this one, which is NOT mine--credit goes to Nccsdfsd something from Reddit. If you look closely in the bottom left corner you can see someone in the middle of completing this jumping puzzle.

    Now for a few of my own:

    I could use that, as my AC is currently busted.  In Floida.  I think I'll just stare at this picture all day and think cool thoughts.  Thanks for the post!

    Did anyone make a male character? I feel like im the only person playing a dude!

    I didn't take any screens because I didn't expect to even like the game, next BWE I will be taking plenty to try and help me decide what race and class combo was the best so I spend less time deciding on release day!

    Can you create muscular female characters in this game? All the females I've seen on screenshots are these skinny fragile things looking like they'll break as soon as something hits them. Just wondering if it's possible to create a "realistic" female char for plate classes, I've seen some skinny but also very beefy male characters.

    You can change body types and a couple of the Norn ones are a tad thicker. Let me see if I can find a good example.

     

    Zoom in the picture and look at the one on the right:
