Boy-howdy, you guys sure know how to bombard a man with questions! I had a truckload to ask and I can’t guarantee that I asked them all. If I missed yours off or haven’t included it I’m very sorry but either I couldn’t find time with the devs to ask them or the answer would have been too similar to another person’s question. Oh, and I ignored all of you who asked about the release date.
As promised we sacrificed our precious sleep so we could upload yesterday’s video’s as soon as possible for you – not just because the line to play Diablo III would be significantly shorter before the Koelmesse doors open for public.
Here they are: Three video’s of Sylvari Guardian gameplay. Notice the Asuran cuteness halfway the second video and the epic boss battle in the third. More on these vids can be found in our Day1 article.
Disclaimer: Due to a sound issue the volume was capped and might be distorted. This is a problem we should be able to avoid in the future. Our apologies.
Karasu and MeWulf travel to GamesCom for TalkTyria in an attempt to play GW2, get swag, interrogate the minds behind GW2 and share their experiences with the fans at home.
At this first official day of GamesCom the halls were alive with press. A bit against our expectations for today the lines for famous titles like Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and Diablo III were completely filled – and then some. With a bit of luck these demo’s are still available later today but getting some game time on them starting tomorrow will probably require a sacrifice of several hours waiting in line.
The booth is alive!
At our arrival we immedeately noticed an increase in white GuildWars2-staff shirts at the boot. The guys from Wartower.de were already doing their best to interview at least half of the available ANet staff. New trailers were playing on large monitors and revealed to us what they’ve been trying to hide from us yesterday: Carbine Studio’s new MMO Wildstar.
