I was purposely not following this game for a reason. More often than not, when it comes to games, I don't like to find out every little thing about it before I play it. The fun for me is discovery and learning on your own. There was an outside chance I would buy it, but I was leaning towards not, just based on the bit that I knew about it.
However, I recently did something that I said I would never do, and that is pre-purchase a game. I just got hooked on watching the videos, and now can't stop.
The thing that sucked me in was actually the knowledge that there would be a class called the Mesmer. I'm an "illusion" kind of guy, and that really intrigued me. So, I started watching some Mesmer videos, and was pretty darn impressed with not only the game play of that class, but the entire game itself. (Engineer looked incredibly fun too, which will probably be my second choice, Guardian my thrid)
I was in the Aug 10th stress test, and just the PvE was surprisingly fun, despite the unbelievable lag and rubberbanding due to that internet issue they were having at the time.
I'm not a blind/raging fanboy, but damn this does look very good. I now see the appeal and have some clue on what they are trying to do differently. More power to them, hope they succeed.
