Post The Nalty Review: Wrapping up!
Over 2 months in now so I feel comfortable posting the below:

In an nutshell, this is the best game I've played in years. Rift's class system was amazing and kept me coming back to that game. Nearly everything about GW2 keeps me coming back to play it. I'm happy to say that over two months in and I still feel that I've only scratched the surface of what's available to do in this game.

The dungeons (at least, the dungeons I've played) are compelling, difficult, and far more dynamic than typical instanced dungeons. Yes, you often do the same encounters; however, the nature of those encounters is far more dynamic and difficult to predict than what I'm used to.

The world is simply massive--feels larger than any game I've played since Everquest (which was just insanely huge).

I continue to tweak and toy with my character--trying different weapons, traits, and skills to see what works best for me.

Crafting is still hugely valuable--and I can easily craft an Exotic set that is as good as any other exotic set in the game. That means I'm not on a "gear treadmill." Any gear "upgrades" I get are purely because I want to look better. That puts so much less pressure on it and let's me do what I enjoy rather than feeling like, "oh, I've gotta get this done!"

WvW is awesome--we need a Vyrzain out there carrying supplies and upgrading keeps!

Have I mentioned that I'm not paying a subscription fee? I plan to buy some gems from the gem store and upgrade my bank and bag slots to support the game. It's worth throwing some money at.

I really hope to see more of you joining us in GW2; and I really look forward to hoisting the blue and gold colors over some keeps with you all!

With the GF back in school and work I'll have some free time to actually log in again and play hopefully.

I really want to get back into a game.

I've been playing a little bit, just toying with the classes really. The game is very interesting so far. I'm going back to school, so I have very limited time to play between family and that, but I hope we see more people in game.
