    Some pictures from CoE


    Poison isn't good for you (our guardian is just chilling with her gun)


    After completing (story mode) instance I started to run around and found that the fence was missing on one place under the stairs, so I jumped down with death shroud and took this picture (after this I fell back to other part of the instance)

    More colorful CoE lights:

    Cameras everywhere


    Also two pictures from guild puzzle.

    I miss GW2, even though I never want to play it again.
    I personally found it so boring.

    GW2 is the kind of game where you make your own fun, some people like that freedom, others do not. there are some legitimate issues with the game, but many i feel are grossly overblown by the community and relative to other MMOs, GW2 is in a very good place atm. so often you read threads where people say "OMG i cld not get into GW2, stopped playing for 6 months, came back changed profession/weapons, am now having a blast and wondered why i left in the first place" etc. mindset is one of the biggest determining factors to whether or not you will enjoy GW2.

    ^ I know. I actually tried to test timelapse there, but the event had popped up and I found my character standing instead of sleeping when I returned to computer (went out to walk dogs).

    They still haven't added an option to hide a character, have they?

    Iryne! We're waiting for more!

    I've been working my way up to 100% map completion and I am going through the Shiverpeaks right now. I decided to go through the
    Shiverpeaks last because I never liked snow areas. I have to say the Shiverpeaks are one of most beautiful areas in the game, I'm considering leveling up a Norn because of it.

    I was a little disappointed with my screenshots though, the sceneries look more amazing in-game. How do Iryne's look so amazing?!

    You can take bitmap pictures instead of default jpeg. This is done with "-bmp" command line.
    -bmp
    Forces the game to create lossless screenshots as .BMP files. Use for creating high-quality screenshots at the expense of much larger files.
    Here are the instructions how to add bitmap command.
    1. Right click on your GW2.exe and click create shortcut.
    2. Right click on your GW2 shortcut and select 'Properties'.
    3. In the 'Target Area' field you will see the location of your Guild Wars executable file: "<...>\Gw2.exe"
    4. Write the desired command line arguments after the quote marks, each beginning with a space: "<...>\Gw2.exe" -bmp


    For more info see gw2 wiki: http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Command_line_arguments

    Sorry, no new landscape pics yet. Work has been taking all my time.

    Nah, I always take screenshots. ^_^ These are nothing amazing, but I will post them anyways. Two pics from doing daily at Queensdale.

    Seeing these screenshots makes me wish to try the game. But B2P is too expensive for a person who wish to try it, to see if it's interesting enough to play. Tried it during the open Beta, but really didn't give the right feeling for me. And the rumors about lacking endgame is scary. But the engine looks delightful.

    Well, after doing what you said, sshots still don't look like in-game places

    To keep Queensdale theme :




    But in game it's more bright And generally speaking - looks better there.


    EDIT: Actually... after posting it here - it's not that bad as I thought.

    wait for it to go on sale, it goes on sale once every ~2 months or so. it's a buy once player forever MMO, they update once every 2 weeks now and when people say it has no end-game they mean no WoW-style end-game. if you only like raiding and don't want to explore, do Jumping Puzzle, tPvP or WvW then i suggest waiting 'til ANet unveils it's version of "raid" like content and see if that grabs you. either way i highly recommend the game, but take that for what you will.

    if you think Iryne's ss are good then you need to try this, it'll make your jaw drop http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/c..._settings_for/

    about the lighting in-game compared to ss i have a similar issue, game looks jaw dropping in-game and the ss look decent but way too dark even though i use windowed fullscreen so it shld be using my desktop gamma/lighting which is higher than normal, but then my screen also auto balances light too so i need to figure out the sweet spot, but i am lazy. oh and FYI playing this game in 3D is mind fucking blowing.

    Hey thanks for this! I will have to give it a try and take some more screenshots.
