I find myself completely at the mercy of the new browser-based game "Glitch" that just recently launched. The game is utterly enthralling, with a supportive community of fans growing up around it at a rapid pace. Glitch could end up turning into something truly amazing in the long term!
I am getting very interested in Guild Wars 2, and definitely plan on picking up some copies of it for the wife and I once it releases. I am very curious on everyone's thoughts however, about the viability of picking up Guild Wars 1 and working on Hall of Monuments achievements in the mean time? How critical do we think the gains from this will be in GW2, or do we even know yet?
I never played Assassin's Creed 1 when it came out, and had planned on grabbed both it and #2 for Christmas sales in order to play then. Then AC:Brotherhood comes out and further cements the fact that I REALLY need to play this series of games. The cultural zeitgeist surrounding them has now swelled to such proportions that I either need to get in on things now, or miss out forever. Do I NEED to play #1, or can I skip that and go straight for #2?
