I got into one of the open beta weekends for Guild Wars a while back (wow, that long ago?!?!?!)and had a blast. The graphics were good although quirky. I really liked the idea of not charging monthly for server time. The betas continued for a looooonnnggg time while they worked out the kinks. GW finally went live recently to mixed reviews. I like AFK’s summary of what being a noob was like. It is similar to what I experienced in the beta weekend. At least until I read the FAQs online at the GW site. I am seriously considering this game as an online fix since there will be no monthly fees. (They will periodically bring out a new box version. You will need to buy that to continue playing. This is how they will bring in revenue.)
