The OP is updated. What do you guys think about the way leveling works with only a small rise in XP requirements when you level up? I think it's gonna be neat, there's a lot of levels to gain, but without the grind.

Everyone should check out the new design manifesto video! It has awesome gameplay in it! :D

Guild Wars 2 is Online Game of the Show at GamesCom! It has beaten Star Wars The Old Republic, which won the "Best MMO" award at E3!

From IGN's preview of the demo: "The demo showed Guild Wars 2 is capable of fulfilling the promises it made -- at least, at the start and somewhere in the middle. If the full release can sustain what the demo showed, World of Warcraft may finally have a run for its money." http://pc.ign.com/articles/111/1113687p1.html

Gooooooooooo Guild Wars 2!

Is this game a little bit anime style?

Not in the japanese sense. They use their art for animation in cinematics some times, but that's about as anime as it gets. Why?

Well in the demo from Gamescom where they showed the human race I saw a player character reminiscent of a little anime girl.

Noes! It's not anime style, you can look up all the screenshots here or watch the newest trailer below and judge for yourself.



I added a walkthrough of the GamesCom demo to the OP, if you're interested in GW2, it's well worth a watch, amazing footage!

I'll be bringing the missing updates later on.
