Been playing my ass off lately. I absolutely love this game. The more I play it, the more I want to play it. That's what makes a great game. If you are playing, hit me up. I'm "Sir Shamrock." This game is beautiful.

Clicky for some screenshots I took.

Shammy I can see your char buttcheeks heehee....why am I looking there you might ask? Hey nerd, GW is an MMO, kinda like EQ, and WOW. The awesome thing about Guild Wars is that there is no monthly charge. Once I get bored with EQ I will buy Guild Wars.

Me either. It looks cool, this is a MMORPG right?

Edit: Ah... no monthly charge eh?

It's about 4 hours of my life a day. Heh, but seriously. If you never played WOW or EQ this is the game for you. The graphics are sick, the lag is non-existant, and when you meet up with a few good players and go on a mission it's classic. Pure fun. Great game. I love it. You build your character, whether a monk, warrior, ranger etc. You can trade stuff you find for better stuff like armour and weapons. A year ago or so I played the free beta. I knew this game was great back then. Now, I'm hooked. A must buy game for a well rounded gamer.

I just hope I don't go insane playing it like Dave Chappel. Gamespot is reporting that Dave Chappelle is (was?) an avid WoW fan, having talked up the game on several occasions. The latest speculation is that he's hiding in South Africa trying to finally reach level 60.

Thats lame hiding in Africa to reach lvl 60, when i was a WoW GM i pranced around with a lvl 250 tauren in my mount giving gold, back to GW, its waaay better than WoW and dont gimme the talk that once u finish its boring cuz expansions will come out, the game is updated often and theres always quests and more quests for u to do.

i got uber chars and equip, pm me for my IGN if u need help or guild invite

the graphics could be a bit nicer, some more detail, but the gameplay looks awesome.

I hated WoW , and i think GW graphics are pretty good, of course not like EQ2's ultra mode that is design for next gen hardware

Guild Wars is just like any other MMORPG out there...But a little better! Nice graphs, wonderful controls, fun quests and full of nice GW Gamers smile.gif

Before I bought the game I was really sceptic 'bout it 'couse a few people said it was laggy and filled with bugs. Now that I've bought it and played it for 2 months I can happily say that I've never encountered a single bug! Not even the smallest! And the only lag I've encountered was when I downloaded as I was playing smile.gif .

A nice game well worth the money! biggrin.gif

i play gw too. actually i played through it, i must have spent atleast 50 hours in doing so, so it was definately worth the money. but now that i played through it im not sure what to do? there are a few things like underworld, that i havent tryed, cos norway is in europa, and we never have the favour of the gods sad.gif .

guess i will try a new character build.

and the expansion level is coming soon, that will be fun to try out.

the coolest part about the game is that it dont require a superhypermodern pc to run, i played it first on a loaner pc, that was 1 gig, 300meg ram, and a mx400 screencard, the game still ran well in 1024, wich is amasing for a new game.
