Little late in the game... but?

jommybgoodjommybgood Memphis, TNPosts: 39Member

So I'm thinking of pre-purchasing guild wars, and I know its very late! Apparently they are still letting people do this for the head start?? At least thats what im understanding. My question is if I buy the game and hate it, is there any way of returning it before "official" launch? (next tuesday, right?) I'm pretty sure they wouldn't let a person do this as it is a stupid business decision, but just making sure because I see no DEMO! I really wish I could play it before buying it... does anyone know if a trial or demo will be released?? THanks! 

Oh, and i already know I missed all the betas... and probably should have tried it there.

    A patient man would wait, a true mmorpg champion would buy. 

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    I guess you have to choose between being a wise man or a champion... your call buddy :-p

    No you have to fully buy it to be able to do the headstart, and you cant return it before laugh if you do that, only on re order can that typically be done. At this point you've missed the tests and you'll have to wait for a trial, buy it, or know a friend whos getting it and try it at their place( this is usually the best option since they dont release free trails for a few months atleast after a game releases ).

    Mess with the best, Die like the rest

    Welp that answers my questions.. I didnt think they would. And truthfully it's $60 with no sub fee. So actually its not that bad. I might end up waiting, but I dont trust most reviewers. I usually play games for myself to get a better understanding. THANKS!!

    I love theses comments.

    I have been a wiseman for 4 years now. This time I went champion and haven't regretted it

    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.

    Have you seen Aerowyn's list of youtube videos? (It's stickied on this forum)

    If you have and are still on the fence, I don't know what to say. Must be pretty hard to find anything fun in life if you don't trust anyone else's opinion on what is enjoyable and are not willing to take any risks. Not sure how waiting till after release would help either, since you'd still have to choose based on reviews, etc.

    This statement coupled with your pic = classic!

    Cheers!

    @OP: I would take the advice to watch the videos and decide for yourself, or wait for a free trial after launch (assuming there is one).  Good luck!

    Cheers!

    "If you love MMOs, you'll want to check out Guild Wars 2, and if you hate MMOs, you'll really want to check out Guild Wars 2."

    ArenaNet said that...and i believe they are right.

    If you love (fantasy) MMOs you´ll simply love Guild Wars 2.

    But if you find some aspects of playing a MMO a tedious timesink.... "you'll really want to check out Guild Wars 2"

    You will not see a "demo" any time soon anyway....

    In my opinion is a game totally worth buying and playing.

    If you like MMOs....ofc

    I have not seen the videos, just some random ones. SO, I will go watch them now. Also I do acknowledge people's opinions, JUST not most companies. You are probably right on the waiting thing tho. And I find plenty of stuff that is fun in my life :) I was just asking some simple questions. Thank you all for your input. I will mroe than likely buy it since it really isnt that big of a risk.

    If you hate it, you're not doing it right, and I would recommend trading in all your previous habits from what an MMORPG is traditionally like.

     

    Of course, this is just my opinion, but I feel confident in sharing my opinion because it's always right.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    I cant see them not making a demo to bring in a larger audience.

    Well, I should have explained my OP better. I dont believe I'd hate it, but rather want to play something else instead. I play many different types of games. This is why I would have rathered try it out, and why I asked about the refund. Because only I can tell if I enjoy it more than another game. But it seems I waited too long to "try" it out. 

    LOL you must have the gift of being right! Along with every other person in forums image

    Sorry if I came across a bit harsh there (I tend to do that), I think I confused your first post with another thread where someone mentioned not trusting any reviews.

    I don't trust most companies advertising either, and didn't have any particular interest in this game until I watched some gameplay videos. That and doing more research into how ArenaNet managed GW1 convinced me that even if I can't exactly trust their advertising, I can trust them to deliver a high quality product with the basic features it claims to have.

    Well, I know all about playing a lot of games. I have 2 shelves of Xbox 360, PS3, and PC games I don't play. They are all very special to me because I considered them a collection.

    I know how hard $60 is to come by if you don't have it, but if I was stuck with the choice, I would gather up all those games I am not using and take them to gamestop and sell them. This game is going to make me happy and the ones on the shelf are pretty much history. Maybe you have the same choice. :)

    If you like mmorpg's you won't be dissapointed with GW2.

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    You'll be charged on the spot if you buy through ArenaNet or Amazon.

    Ah gotcha! SO... thank you for telling me about that video list! Im pretty sure I could be watching these all day long, lol. They are very, very good! I haven't played the original guild wars, but I do agree with you that they have made a  high quality product here. I don't think anyone could disagree with that.
