    /facepalm
    Great - this means we all have to deal with a bunch of idiots from time to time who try to prove their trinity-theory while not doing their job and beeing nothing but chock on the groups chariot.



    However, nice article, thanks for linking it.

    The day before the embargo lift he posted on Twitter:


    In previous months he filled in on GamebreakerTV when the GW2 presenters where absent on a few occasions, and every time he would say things along the lines of "oh well they say they got rid of the trinity, but I think you can still play like a healer" etc.

    So he had made his mind up months before he even played the game.
    In my opinion, that completely destroys his creditability as a journalist doing a review.
    It may be. In any case it's not what I was talking about; even if he's not impartial, which I can forgive since he's not a machine, the report did sound so instead of reading like a love letter.

    FINALLY! A great write up on GW2 beta. Not just "this mechanic does this" that we've heard ad nauseum for the past 4 months. He writes his opinions and his view points. Great read. Anyone who considers themselves a GW2 fan MUST read this article.

    Try out City of Heroes, imo, it's a great time-killer.

    Some people will turn to using faulty logic just to stubbornly support their arguments and not be wrong.
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.
