If you get the invite, but can't seem to accept it, try logging out to character select, then back in, then accept. There may be a delay after that, but you should join the guild shortly thereafter.

@ZoomyRamen: Well, I mean, I hate to say it, but we're talking about a game that, other than expansions, requires zero monetary commitment from the players. So how can you really call it gross if they want to charge for endgame content in expansions?

@UssjTrunks: i assume your forgetting about Jeff and his opinion of the game?

Look at Jeff's opinion on pretty much any MMO and you'll see why "forgot" it.

@Selona83: Oh, nah, you're fine. This week's episode was just fucking determined not to happen. But alas, our fearless leader has prevailed and brought forth the insanity that is episode 17!

Since you guys had some trouble with this weeks episode, will it be up on the RSS feed this week at all:)?

Just wondering if I should keep an eye on it or not:)

Thanks!

PS: yay! Launch week!

We re-recorded last night, so it might be up some time today, depending when gets done editing.

@Selona83: As pointed out, we rerecorded it last night, and is hard at work on editing. We ran into another snag last night with the recording, so editing is taking longer than possible but it'll absolutely be up on the RSS. May not be today, though. Just depends on how the editing goes.

Goddamn. 7 hours total to edit and get this thing up. I hate mumble, I hate it so fucking much.

It's 3:44am - I AM GOING TO BED.

Well that went up much quicker than I thought! But yeah, with what you told me, I agree. Fuck Mumble. Podcasting software my ass!

I find the level of raw enthusiasm for GW2 honestly baffling, it looks decent but I don't see how it's the Second Coming or anything. There are some high expectations for what this is going to be, and I haven't a clue how the game can live up to all that (haven't played the betas yet, I'm just skeptical).

I might buy it if it lives up to the hype a couple weeks down the road, not sure yet. GW1 wasn't my thing.

Same. It's not even really an MMO in that it doesn't really offer anything to suggest it's a second universe you can fully live in and immerse yourself in. There's no player-driven economy, there's no housing system, there's no politics, no full-on armor customization. Really I just don't see what separates it from like, say, Dragon Age Origins with multiplayer. The lack of subscription fee is the only thing that's unique to me.

I....what? Ok, first off, there is a player-driven economy (Trading Post) that is supplemented by the gem store (microtransactions), WoW has no housing system, WoW has no politics, and GW2 has probably the most armor customization of all current MMO's to date. Not only can you customize up to 3 different colors per piece (weapons excluded), but you can also change the visual appearance (a la WoW's transmogrification system) of every piece of gear (I'm assuming here with weapons). I'm not trying to sound like a fanboy here, but I'm guessing neither of you have actually played in the beta at all ( has admitted as much), because if you had, you'd know that GW2 is nothing like GW1 in any way other than the lore. GW2 is a fully-realized MMO world, the same as you would come to expect from games like WoW, SWTOR, Rift, or TERA. Claiming it not to be a "real" MMO because it is missing such sideline features as player housing and politics comes off as desperately nitpickey to find anything wrong with the game to complain about. In fact, with the exception perhaps of a player-driven economy, none of those features you meantioned,

Yeah, unfortunately I had some pretty heinous technical problems. I won't even be on this week's episode, as it took me nearly 2 hours to get it all sorted out, but I can assure you there will be an episode this week. I created a thread about it here so as not to disrupt episode 17's discussions.
