So how do you kill time before launch?

Most of us probably refreshes https://www.guildwars2.com/en/ several times during a day, just to watch how many hours lefts a day before we can rage in Guild Wars 2 -  Iknow I do.

 

I wanted to create a thread, for pure curiousity, about how people kill time before the GW2 release.

 

I try to complete all the games that I should have completed but without any luck. Any game bores me to death.

 

I try to kill time by completing Sniper Elite V2, Beat Hazard, and some other games plus the ones from PsPlus before Guild Wars 2 arrives - because I know I wont touch these cursed games once it arrives.

 

But how do you kill time before the champion itself arrives?

    Aye, I hear you.

     

    No matter what game I put on, I keep thinking about Guild Wars 2. All games are utter shit compared to Guild Wars 2.

     

    Its purely torture that they decided to launch 2 MONTHS after the reveal of the release date.

     The List since the last test event :

    League of Legends, Trine 2 , Magicka , Prototype 2 , Skyrim - Dawnguard , Smite , and Orcs must Die 2.

     

    Nothing satisfies me .... the hunger.

    Well for me like any other time. I go get abunch of clocks an set them up out back, then i go get several veriaties fo guns, and go do some target practice to kill some time. Thhough i find hallow points kill time better then normal bullets.

    As far as games go, this is almost my exact list as well.  Just remove Prototype 2 and Orcs must Die 2 and replace them with Madden 2011 and Final Fantasy 12.  

     

    On a side note, is it confirmed that GW2 will officially release at noon on saturday instead of midnight?  PST or EST?

    As far as I understand, the timer on the gw2 page should show the right time instead of local time now?

    Well I'm still working, but I will be to.  I can't stand the quest hubs but looks like it will keep me busy for the two+ weeks.

    I'm playing a new file on desktop dungeons again (the downloadable alpha one).   Still a great game

    Funny enough, I used to check GW2 page plus a number of other sites daily for any news for the past two and half years, however now I'm at a point where I'm just doing other things instead of trying to think if things to do till launch. I'm really looking forward to the game, but I think I've got past the stage you guys are struggling with at the moment. =P

    I've been playing Counterstrike Source oddly enough. I played a little The Secret World during the celebration weekend. I likely would have bought it afterwards if the GW2 release wasnt looming so close. Today I will be downloading the RaiderZ beta and giving that a go. It looks like a blast...I'm hoping it will take my mind off of GW2 till release. :)

    It currently shows noon EST on Saturday.  All beta times were listed as PST, so I was wondering if that bug still existed.
