It's supposed to be released in a couple months (or next month? not sure on the specific date). Has anyone played the beta? If so, what are your thoughts? From what I've seen it looks pretty neato, and I was a big fan of the original before I lost interest in the wake of all the expansions and lack of expendable time.

If you've played the beta, what are your thoughts? If you haven't, are you thinking about joining in? I might get it depending on the consensus. From what I've heard I gather it's F2P, the way the original was, and I've been considering getting back into MMOs.

I haven't played the beta, but I've watched a fair deal of previews. I can't say I'm very impressed. It looks like just another linear MMO with no true community creativity involved. The market is oversaturated as it is. I'd rather they took some of the gameplay from the likes of Star Wars: Galaxies(in regards to the community aspects, not the combat, which was horrendous), and improved upon that.

Well, before anyone claims bias, I have to say I loved the original Guild Wars. I tried the Beta, and while the 3-faction PvP was pretty interesting, the overall game just didn't impress me. Not enough to buy it, at least.

Still, there's something to be said for no monthly subscription... But on the other hand, a subscription for, say, SWTOR is currently only $14.99, and I get hours upon hours of entertainment from it. I spend triple that going out to the movies for, at most, 3 hours.

Anyhow, regarding GW2, it's interesting, but not enough for me to switch. I'd probably wait till it's first major patch hits, to see what they bring in, before committing to buy it.
