I am joined by Shongaqu from Tyrian Stories and Tigerfeet at the Secret Agent Cat blog to review the second Beta Weekend Event and stress test, plus the release date announcement (8/25/12 for prepurchasers and 8/28/12 for all others.) We jumped into the realm of video and while we found that there are many kinks to be worked out, it’s a fair start. We’re reviewing a few other pieces of software to try out for the upcoming shows, and we can pretty safely guarantee that some of our newer ideas will not disappoint. Our next experiment will be the use of camera views of the hosts while discussing various topics, and playing the game during BWE 3. A podcast and gameplay commentary mixed together for a special sweetness. You hear that RO squad? Best be ready. Gear up in Relics swag at our Zazzle Store.

I am joined by Shongaqu from Tyrian Stories to review the first Beta Weekend Event and stress test, plus the community reactions. Download the MP3 What profession/race did you play? How far did you get and what did you do to get there. Storytime! Which things did you not get to try, whether by technical limitation or time constraints that you wanted to do? How does Guild Wars 2 square up against other MMO’s that you’ve played? What are your thoughts on the reaction of the populace to the game, now that the NDA is lifted? How well do you expect Guild Wars 2 to do as compared to, say, Rift, SWTOR, and other MMO competitors of late? Which differences do you see that might grant GW2 more success? Cash shop impressions, value as a business model. Will it be profitable? Did the promise to put the holy trinity behind us appear to come true? (Interesting Reddit post regarding this) What have you found yourself doing, mostly, while you wait for GW2? Many people that played GW2 find themselves incapable of playing other games and enjoying it. Should there be a term of this phenomenon, or is there one? (Beta tester’s remorse?)

Community Segments: None Sequel Scuttlebutt Jonathan Sharp talks about underwater combat Jon Peters and an underwater combat video Key features: breath meter (there isn’t one) underwater weapons – trident, spear, harpoon gun underwater skills z-axis – skills and drowned state (drowed state creating incentive to go underwater when low on health) amphibious enemies – change behaviour on land/underwater dynamic events underwater towns (and underwater areas in cities e.g. LA) underwater minions (Ranger has amphibious pets) Speculator’s Corner underlying concern with a lack in variety of skills (access to only 2 weapons – 1 for ele and engineer) the range issue with melee characters and the z-axis Ambience. They’ve got a deepening thick blue like water tends to have, if you’ve done scuba, you see that the plants are extremely well done, and even the ambient sound is just like being underwater. Dodging works underwater also Skills that sink enemies If you like aerial combat, understand that a good portion, maybe half, of this game is underwater and there’s little functional difference between aerial and underwater combat. This just rationalizes it better. Music By: Canto6 (Intro) The Matt Nasi Band (Outro)
