Guild Wars 2 had a free trial this past weekend. My friend Gaff, who has been playing it, sent me a code for the trial. Apparently you had to get a code from a current player to be a worthwhile prospect, which isn’t a bad theory. If you know somebody who is already playing, you are probably more likely to want to keep playing after the trial is up.
So I spent Wednesday night patching while I slept and then patched some more after that because ANet had an event planned and since I was being handed a full version of the game for the weekend, it was theoretically possible I might get to it.
I did not.
I will point out that if you look at my Raptr profile, it will tell you I have spent 15 hours playing Guild Wars 2.
I did not spend 15 hours playing Guild Wars 2.
More about that after the cut, as this gets long and has pictures and the usual.
