The Plan for this Blog

Since ArenaNet announced that they were developing a sequel to the Guild Wars franchise; I have been excited to find out what they might add to the MMORPG genre and how they would alter the base concepts to make their game different to other games in the genre. They have written blog posts containing quotes such as "game companies don’t have to just keep making the same games over and over" and "It doesn’t suck your life away and force you onto a grinding treadmill" both of which have killed current MMOs for me, especially World of Warcraft. I have been reading the blogposts, watching the videos and generally browsing for new information regarding the game and am now really looking forward to the release of Guild Wars 2. I have been generally learning about all of the different aspects of Guild Wars 2 so that I will be ready and nicely hyped for the release of the game.
