Guild Wars 2: This is the MMO you're looking for

I must have started this post three different times, trying to decide exactly what I wanted to say about Guild Wars 2, based on my experiences from the beta weekend.  At first, I was going to do a very thorough sort of bug and playtest feedback kind of thing.  But I started going through the forums, and saw a huge amount of the same kind of feedback I had to give already stated there.  I think the developers are getting good and valuable feed from the beta test.

An Embarrassment of Riches

If you're an MMO fan, (and what are you doing here if you're not) then April is shaping up to be a heady month!  And yes, that is perhaps a thinly veiled 420 reference.  Let's take a brief look at the many dishes that are currently - or have recently been - available for you to dine upon!

Dear Tera - it's not you, it's me.

So I spent the weekend, as many of my peers did, roaming the picturesque hills and forests of Tera.  And for the most part, I had quite an enjoyable time.  In this open beta, the game was very solid.  No crashes, and no graphical glitches at all.  Had I already purchased or pre-ordered Tera, I don't think I'd be disappointed at all.  But not having done so, I didn't find that much to really compel me to return to the world either, especially when compared against the numerous other offerings that are either available now, or will be available soon.  But there is quite a bit to like about the game, so why am I not ordering?
