Aerowyn's Video Compilation of ALL things Guild Wars 2(Pre-Launch)

AerowynAerowyn BUZZARDS BAY, MAPosts: 7,928Member

So many threads asking the same questions over and over and over. Same back and forth from people going round and around and around. Many sandbox fans hating on the game only because it's a themepark. Many spreading false information of what the game is and what it's not. So I put together a list of videos I feel show off and explain some of the best aspects of this game and what it has to offer. ENJOY

First something to kick things off,  ARE YOU READY ..........................  TO HAVE SOME FUN?

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

    Damn you really took your time time make this post, kuddos.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    I'm just passing on some good videos I found to people.. although the people who constantly come here to bash the game will do so no matter what is brought before them. Hope you all enjoy the videos:)

    usually when someone comes here saying off the wall junk i like to give them a link rather than argue circles with them for 100 pages..

    this will do nicely, well done.

    You got more then i posted in my blog I just but up. I said there was more and you proved it here

    A MMO is like life. It is something to cherish and enjoy upon in it journey. So why race to the end of it. In life at the end you die.

    Its still just a Theme Park,

    And everyone is just going to work their way through all the content and then get bored with it.  Then they'll come here and start talking about how bad it is.

    themeparks are great if done right.. just unfortunate it's been awhile since one has really been done right.

    You know, I'm happy how thrilled and excited people are to have this game.

    But are you ready for the negativity that always follows an MMORPG after a few weeks have gone by?

    This is missing that absolutely hilarious video of a ranger's pet running up and intercepting a projectile.

    it's a great demonstration of the wonderful animations (And giggle-worthy sad cat noise), and the fact that you CAN body block projectiles.

    Also, hilarious.  Can't remember where it is. T.T

    edit:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_zn404EpSs

    Found it.  A fun counter to when somebody says it's simply a tab target system with autohitting projectiles. :D

    i'll disregard the themepark comment as it is too broad a concept to argue within this topic.  an overgeneralization not worth discussion.

    the rest of your comment is simply baseless.

    you have no evidence that this has ever occurred nor do you have any evidence that this will ever occurr.

    this is the sort of comment that only exists to cause argument, as it is not grounded in reality.  why are you trying to start arguments for arguments sake?  or do you truly believe such a nonsensical thing would happen?

     Still happens with sandboxes, people coming and complaining how bad the game is.

    People complaining about how bad games is, that's pretty much the point to the site, right?

    Great thread, I can tell this took a while to put together amazing work, this will help a lot of people who have questions about certain features in GW2. 
  • MephsterMephster Tyria, NJPosts: 1,188Member
    It amazes me that people still believe there is an endgame when it has been clearly started endgame starts at level 1. I guess they see what they want to...

    Grim Dawn, the next great action rpg!

     You're misreading the statement.  The statement is not 'There's nothing to do at the end of the game', but that the activities you start doing from level 1 are the same things you can be doing at 'end game', as opposed to a model where end game consists of a sudden shift to a different playstyle being the only really rewarding playstyle, with a need to gear up with practically unending tiers of better equipment.

    Fantastic post Aerowyn!  I'll be bookmarking it and pasting it to every reply I do to every misinformed poster on this site.  Not that it will do any good, but I happen to enjoy banging my head against a wall!  lol

     

    Thanks for all that hard work!

    Thanks for sharing, you've contributed so much to this thread....

    I don't get why people find fun in doing stuff like this, do we really need you to tell us that after release we will see trolls bashing the game? what are you a prophet of some sort? 

    No offence but I couldn't give a rats ass what others think. I bought this game for me not strangers I don't even know in real life.

    that's the whole point but guess you just see what you want to see.. anyway didn't want this to end up another bitching match like every other thread I just wanted to share some videos.
