Oh my god!  So awesome.

Fixed!

Also, stress test tomorrow Aug. 9  12pm-4pm PST Probably a good idea to patch now if you haven't run the patcher recently.

Apparently Felicia Day did the voice for one the Asura's...I forget the name, but I think its the one in blue with the big gauntlet that was helping during a golem-judging event.

Oh my god why.  So creepy.

I might have to agree with Kharv here. The art for them outside the game was much less creepy than the ones in the game.

Yep she voiced Zojja who you interact with through-out your personal story.

Another stress test: Friday Aug. 10th 4pm-8pm PST (a little more eastern time zone friendly!)

As usual, they will be actively working on the game during the stress test so expect possible game issues as a result. (although in general I've rarely noticed a problem even during the stress tests)

Pretty nice video with a lot of gameplay and shots of the world, worth noting that all of this is actual gameplay and not cutscenes (with I think maybe the exception of 1-2 seconds of closeups of two of the bosses)
Also has some nice commentary from the devs:

Careful of watching videos! I had decided to play an Asura Warrior until I saw someone playing a Mesmer (who knew what they were doing), and now I am back to not being sure what to play.

Warrior
Engineer
Mesmer

ARG! Less than a week left to decide!!!

Yeah I'm waffling between guardian and mesmer, they were my favorite to play in the beta and mesmer just got a nice boost to resolve some its underpoweredness (that's a word, sure).


More people should play this because it's going to be fun. *nods*

Yeah, Guardian is also looking really good...and Elementalist seems to offer to most robust variety of gameplay. GAH!

The only thing I know for sure is I don't want to play Ranger. Thief was alright, but not what I was looking for. And REVIVAL!mancer I am 100% neutral on.

Played Thief throroughout BWE 3 and am sure of it now.  Soooo much fun.

More people should definitely play this game.  I can't wait!

The game looks very good, but I'm not expecting a mass exodus and I have a huge backlog of very good games I paid $5-10 for, so I'm not likely to fork over full price for this.  I'll definitely pick it up when it's cheap, but that could be a while.

(Also, planned or not, Blizzard did an excellent job of scheduling interesting but low-risk stuff on top of the GW2 release date, while still making it possible to play GW2 for a month and then pick up pandas at launch.)

I am also waiting for GW to become cheap.  My summer skinflint purchases have been very hit-and-miss so I don't actually have a gaming backlog but I did just drop $40 on MoP and $60 pre-ordering Borderlands 2 so I probably can't justify another $60 on top of that.

There might actually be some deals a few months after release. If I recall correctly I think they've already completely recovered production costs via Pre-Orders. I could be wrong though since I have no source to cite.
