There's new content scheduled for december too. Is GW 2 going to have monthly updates?
ill hold off eating my hat right now, still not convinced thiis content wasnt already or nearly ready at launch, but theses monthly updates are very nice. almost convinced they might live up to regular updates of decent quality. i honestly hope they do, might give blizz aa kick up the arse, not that gw2 will dent the sub base, just the effect that a b2p game can have better development says a lot. gratz.
Mr.negative strikes again!
Really c'mon now Dray, how can you be so sceptical about this?
So I saw this poster over at the divingboard in LA and I haven't seen it before.
a whole shitload of text but unfortunately I wasen't able to make a descent snapshot of it.
It also shows a picture of some sort of monster and a stick-figure running away from it
Mod Edit: Thumbnails, sweetie.

You have to excuse Draykoree for his cynicism, he's use to his game that is trickling out their launch content over months under the guise of being in the better interest of their players ....at a monthly fee of course ;-)
That stick figure lol.

Ooo, I'm a monster. Perhaps you should speak to me more softly then. Monsters are dangerous and just now kings are dying like flies. - Tyrion Lannister
Am i the only one that's fairly baffledawrfed that this guy doesn't play an asura?
PS: I thought it meant giant crabs were trying to eat people but i didn't see any crabs... or giant anythings... but there WERE beached whales..

@dray, why is it that your avatar makes me want to drop kick my monitor? It's only the avatar, most of your posts i don't have issues with (even though i may not agree with them) just your avatar...
I hope my new avatar is as palatable as my attempts to be positive :P
This is a lot of the case in new mmo's. There was an interview for TSW where they have their plans a couple months ahead though everything wasn't ready with the exception of tokyo.
But I digress, as was mentioned before Housing is perhaps one of the highest revenue generators that could possibly exist for a game that has a cash shop. That alone makes it worthy from a business stand point, not to mention that many other prime MMOs are promising it (FFXIV 2.0, Rift, Wildstar, EQNext, Archage, etc.). Though it also has many opportunities other than simply having a house such as creating new professions in carpentry and tinkering and refreshing the market in various ways that are only limited by the imagination.
When it comes to dungeons, I'm done whenever I got that piece that I've wanted simply because the way they are set up in GW2. Though Housing is something that I personally would work on for hours a day if the game allowed it, always seeking new items or working on new professions to create a bear rug or a chair or bed for my house or a friend's house. However, I'm not sure Arenanet could produce a masterpiece in this fashion, as they don't even have chairs that you can sit in that have been pivotal for my friends and I in ultima online when having dinner together and playing board games inside of the game. In that light, it may be very true that their time is best spent elsewhere, as a subpar implementation is quite useless compared to an ease of access tool.
Anything that is built on and relies upon the imagination of the creator and the player is something that has infinite potential. It's just so costly to make such a thing, that games that oft promise housing "after the game is released" tend never to get it out the door simply because it would never be as good as the other content they released in the mean time, the schedule players expect of them after the first few patches, and the responsibility they have to meet it so the people that stayed get what they stay for instead of shaking their head at something new that more than half of them would never give the chance it deserves.
I am among the most Ignorant and contradictory person around; I believe that ignorance is unacceptable, research key when adding to a discussion, and willingness to learn be shown along with cautious pride in your own work.
To view ignorance as unacceptable in a world full of it is, in itself, the most ignorant thing imaginable.
To question the world is folly in itself... yet to not, invalidates the science of learning.
Oh and if this game had housing, i'd be back in a jiffy, getting my house in ultima online was a great moment in my mmo history.
