Vagrant Gamers #5 – Guild Wars 2 First Impressions

Welcome to Vagrant Gamers Episode #5!

This week I’m joined by my good friend Gavin Townsley and we discuss all things Guild Wars 2. The beta weekend just ended and I couldn’t wait to talk about it. What made it an especially productive weekend and show is that there is no NDA on the Beta Weekend Events, so we can talk about anything we experienced first hand.

We hit on all of the major aspects of the game:

– Races

– Professions

– Leveling and Questing

– Combat

– Structured/Instanced PvP

– WvW

-And plenty more!

Give it a listen and let us know what YOU think of Guild Wars 2.

Also, please leave us a review on iTunes!

Note: This was our first live cast, so it’s possible the quality may be slightly lower than normal, I am working to correct this issue in the future.
