I wusve gone for D3 with no hesitation 6 months ago. But now that we know a fair bit more about each game, i am not as much excited for D3 anymore. And this is coming from a mad D2 fan. GW2 just looks more revolutionary and interesting.

I would check this out, but I literally don't have the time between BF3 and SWTOR. The gameplay looks fierce, but before I was a PC geek, I was a Star Wars geek and it's my first love!

Not better, just different (in theory). Last I checked, each race has a racial skill that will be important, but not game breaking. For example, the Norn can shapeshift into different animal forms. Each form skews their skills towards a different attribute to deal with specific situations depending on if you need more heath, damage, speed, etc.

I agree completely. I'm actually playing D2 for the millionth time right now and thinking about D3 just makes me sad. D3 may still surprise me, but GW2 is at the top of my list without a doubt.

SWTOR is another one that disappoints the hell out of me. Watching the tutorial area and some raid footage just reminded me that I might as well just tape a jedi picture in the center of my monitor and play wow/rift. I'm going to skip a majority of the cut scenes and voice acting anyway. I would probably still play if I got a beta invite though. I had a lot of fun in the rift beta before losing interest in like 2 weeks, so I can only imagine SWTOR would be better than that. It has to be fun, its just not what I'm looking for.

Warrior video looked good, but easy. Hopefully the difficulty gets increased some.

First of all, I find your avatar deeply disturbing. Second, I totally agree. When I heard about this idea, I immediately thought it would be like an ingame Craigslist. Sexual predators aside, it makes perfect sense to do. I don't know how many times I've gone to Auction Houses to not find the item I needed, or too few. It will be great to have a 'want to buy' section.

A while back Colin (I think) mentioned that the professions starting with the first 4 (warrior, ele, ranger, necro) would be the easier of the eight to play, with each profession revealed increasing in difficulty.

While I don't believe that to be 100% true, but something like the guardian does seem more involved than the warrior or ranger. I feel like the elementalist is going to be plenty complex, much more so than the thief or engineer (which is why I'm most likely rolling one first). I like the idea of constantly swapping out attunements during battle based on the situation at hand.

the game is not easy at all. everything shown at these events has Arenanet staff carrying players through it. in imperfect block's video, he didn't solo that event.

They also said the demos were lowered difficulties so players could pick up and play without dieing endlessly because they are used to traditional MMO's.
