BWE Coverage @ Pro-G

BWE Coverage @ Pro-G -

Pro-G, a gaming site in the UK just published some nice coverage of the Beta Weekend Event for Guild Wars with some cool screen shots.  A small preview is below:

Guild Wars is a lovely little game. 'Little' figuratively speaking, of course, as the game itself is pretty much hugenormous. Through a mere weekend of play my entire viewpoint of the MMORPG genre has been changed. Whilst I doubt the game is groundbreaking or will change the lives of the more grizzled veterans, for a mere n00b (feeling… of nausea… rising…) like me it was perfect.

Starting out with a pretty small download (broadband-wise), I was soon greeted with my options for creating my character. Now the game is currently in a beta, so is by no means finished - this is the most likely explanation for the lacking customisation options, with only around five or so hairstyles available. All with pony tails of some kind. Nevertheless I soldiered on, choosing my class as a Ranger - nimble, good with bows and able to control wild animals to fight alongside them. Opting to make my chap a tiny sort and giving him a nice red tinge to his hair, he was soon christened: Ianos of Ian. You can feel the imagination pouring out of me right now, can't you?
