Now Playing: Sylvari Starter Experience (GameSpot)

#1 Edited by Jack_Lafayette (3434 posts) -

Here's the sylvari version of the hour-and-some-long asura video that went up a week ago.

Watching it now. Can't wait to see a bunch of neon trees and whatnot. Applause for the Plants vs. Zombies reference. And that volcanic jumping puzzle... just looked incredible.

Ah for fuck. Not clicking this is really hard.

I feel like I've been saying that a lot recently - man, 28/8 can't come soon enough.

God damnit, no! I was just getting ready to go to sleep....

Between this, the Tony Hawk Quick Look, and the Limbo Quick Look that will help me decide if I should buy it or not, I'll be sleeping quite some time from now.

Because, of course, none of this shit can wait.

@Dourin: @TheHT: What is sleep even, man. You know?

Seriously, though, I should really go to bed now.

The build they're playing on is a fair bit older than what we'll be seeing in BWE3 it seems. The character creator is different.

Is youtube still processing this? That HD looks TERRIBLE.

@CL60: nah looks pretty much the same on the gamespot player too. Very poor quality.

Nice resolution on that video.

Come on Gamespot, what are you doing?

I really like the whole Dream setup with the Sylvari. They're definitely one of the most interesting aspects of GW2, story-wise.

It looks newer to me. You couldn't zoom out that far in any of the older builds.

Wait, you don't know if you should buy Limbo? I have a spare copy i can trade, if you want. Also, i think it's 2.99 on Steam, that's cheap.

I've got nothing to trade for it, but it's currently in my cart anyways. The sale is the reason I'm contemplating buying it. I was always curious about the story from the first time I saw the Quick Look. When they get to the end and see the other kids trying to stop Limbo Boy, I got the feeling some fucked up shit lay ahead.

It never stuck out as something I needed to play, but I never felt that way about Dear Esther either, yet I snatched that up on sale. I think I'll take the plunge. The deep $2.49 plunge lol.

@UssjTrunks: There's no option to change the lighting setting in the character creator which is in the closed beta stuff that's hitting youtube atm.

@TheHT: Buy it. I would trade for Wizorb, since it's cheaper than Limbo... But hey, you've got nothing to lose with Limbo. It's a cool experience.
