    Is it just me or do the character models looks really out of place? like...they're not lit properly or something.

    Preorder beta is ongoing as of yesterday and there is a rumor of it releasing in June to coincide with the release of the original GW.

    As eager as I am to play more, I hope they don't release in June. They've got a lot of stability/performance/polishing work to do.

    Granted, they are in a pretty good place in regards to those things then other close to launch MMOs I've played, but ya they definitely need to do a few things, including some more community suggested features such as allowing people to pick overflow servers to meet up with party members, getting more use out of CPUs and GPUs, and stuff to do with auto-attack.

    okay, those environments with the max screenshots look pretty nice. going to agree with Anon on the character models -- hopefully they get it fixed up before release!

    The rumors of a June release are just that - rumors generally based on placeholder release dates from retailers like Gamestop. There is no official release date.

    If you are talking Guild Wars 2, on high detail level your character always have a white backlight on them. Probably to make them pop more (lots of games use this... like Shadow of the Colossus, Mario and others).

    Gotta say, I'm a big fan of Hoelbrak. Really nice scenery, and the giant ass dragon tooth in the middle of the lodge is a nice touch.

    Cutscenes aren't half bad, either. The pictures don't do them much justice, though.

    Alright got my Slayer to 34 and finally was able to leave the Dreary death around Poporion!

    Hopped on a pegasus to reach one of the warp gates for easy travel

    Not joking about warp gate.

    Arrived over the beautiful Cutthroat Harbor, a finer den of villainy doesn't exist.

    The sun was a welcome change from the darkness in Poporion.

    And.....of course we go right into a giant labyrinth where it's dark and evil again.

    And for good measure we decided to check out their basement. Obviously not having our fill of darkness.

    They really do. I'm thinking of making my Lancer an Aman as well, though I find the higher camera due to their height is a little disorienting for combat (which is funny, since I typically only play tall characters in standard MMOs).

    Lion's Arch is just epic. I spent two hours running around just unlocking points of interest, and gave up/tuckered out at 98% completion. Their underwater passageways have underwater passageways! It's insane.

    We found a whale.

    Ah, fuck.

    I decided to splurge with the gems and buy a new town outfit today. I played around with a bunch of color combinations before settling on something bland.

    zvFbH.jpg
    Just a note, there's about 8 asura gates in there that are under construction. Guessing it's for future content.

    I found a representative of the game's resident bear people.

    8AXba.jpg
    The kodan, as opposed to the norn, who can only turn into bear people every now and then.

    After a while, I headed back to the charr capital city.

    A3KwP.jpg
    As a part of the human/charr peace accord, at least one bland human must occupy every district of the citadel.

    There's a pretty awesome looking structure in this picture.

    I took a total of 183 screenshots of the GW2 Beta Weekend event. I shall go through them tomorrow and post the best here, including more Lion's Arch, random adventures, and my characters.

    For now, the obligatory group screenshot fest in LA of the PA guild. Truly a preamble of things to come.

    Okay, some of the Guild Wars shots look incredible, and some look like they're 5+ years old. Sometimes of the same thing.

    Is it just a difference in settings?



    Really digging the art style though, hope they make it easy to run on high settings unlike some other MMOs which we no longer speak of (looks at Squeenix).

    So we decided to have a small guild get together on the outskirts of the capital city

    goodtimes1.png
    Yes folks that is a campfire. Vamen is wholly uninterested and sulking because of our emotional abuse. Brynhilde and Komachi are having a drunken brawl by a pillar


    goodtimes2.png
    Vamen still has hurt feelings in this shot. The brawl is over and Duckets is convinced that he can take both of them at once with both hands tied behind his horn pompadour.

    goodtimes3.png
    I decided to step in and restore order at this point. This is probably the only civil screenshot I managed to get. I even managed to smile for the camera here. Vamen posed but only because he's a team player. He really didn't want to be there since he isn't a castle yet.

    goodtimes4.png
    goodtimes5.png
    "The fuck are you guys doin back there......?"

    goodtimes6.png
    More folks from the guild started to join in. You can't see my mystic's face in this shot. But rest assured his jaw is on the floor, dumbfounded by the spontaneous song and dance routine that erupted behind him.

    goodtimes7.png
    *sigh*

    goodtimes8.png
    At this point I was totally discombobulated. They had managed to break me down thus I suggested tomfoolery. Such as making our steeds convulse in a horrid display.


    goodtimes9.png
    We managed to chase this poor soul all the way across the Velika wilds to Celestial Hills where we proceeded to box him in with our horses.
    The funny thing about all this is after a couple of minutes of being subjected to it they joined our cause. Most likely out of fear of reprisal should they choose otherwise.
    They choose wisely this day.

    These are just a couple shots of me looking like a rabbit pimp.

    The first eight shots are almost the exact same thing. Well, seven, one has horses.

    I really hate to complain about that, I don't want to tell people what to do in what is basically an artistic thread. I'm just politely suggesting that picking the best out of those first seven shots and then putting all the text under that one would be just as good without nearly as much scrolling down. :I

    Or putting the sequence past the first one in spoilers? I'm coming off as a jerk aren't I.

    I would have put the 'story time sequence' set behind spoilers if they didn't make them gigantic once the spoiler was unspoiled?

    other people are nicer than I am, but basically it is a screenshot thread, if you don't want to scroll through screenshots you probably shouldn't come to it. I think this gets repeated every time someone tries to dictate what should be in them or if people should use spoiler tags or not (they shouldn't).

    GW2 beta is done. Here's some of my favorite screens. They are all taken at very high (but not quite maximum) settings. I was too lazy to try forcing anisotropic filtering for this beta event, as I did not know what the effects would be. So sorry about some of the angled textures.

    The free city of Lion's Arch. The city is huge and there are walkways and little back alleys everywhere.
    ?.jpg

    Lion's Arch at night.

    Face-to-face with the human queen Jennah in her throne room in the city of Divinity's Reach.

    A view of half of one of the six districts of Divinity's Reach.

    Outside Divinity's Reach, in the village of Shaemoor.

    Scrap yard in the Black Citadel, the Charr capitol city.

    Assaulting a keep in "world vs world" (server vs server) PvP. My pistol shot is aimed right between the eyes of a pesky wizard up there on the ramparts.
    ?.jpg

    Assaulting a different keep.
    ?.jpg

    Apparently when Charr shout a battlecry there are shockwaves and nearby people's hands crackle with lightning. Yes they are that badass.
    ?.jpg

    A strike force including several PA'ers returned the orb of power safely to our home shrine, helping to give our forces the edge across all four world vs world battlegrounds.
    ?.jpg

    PA guild meets up in Lion's Arch. This is just the few I could get in frame while we were posing for a group photo. (See Corehealer's post above)
    ?.jpg

    Asura technology is quite impressive... even if you don't know what the actual purpose is.
    ?.jpg

    Three Charr PA'ers assault a lookout point attempting to reclaim it from ogres. We managed to clear them out (their forces all fled!), but the ogres came back with a devastating counter-attack a few minutes later.

    A monastery in the Krytan countryside.
    ?.jpg

    Closing portals to the underworld with hot lead.
    ?.jpg

    This guy objected.

    ?.jpg

    ?.jpg

    This is more of a silly screenshot. At the end of the beta there was a zone-wide event in the Norn lands featuring extremely dangerous critters (pigs, raccoons, rats, etc). Here a flaming bird of terror downs player after player.

    Graphic Settings + there's a low resolution screenshot, and a high resolution screenshot, and they make a huge difference when it comes to lighting and capturing nice textures.
