Guild Wars

[Guild Wars] Since I preordered Guild Wars, I was able to play for free the past two days and I must say it has been fun. I will certainly get this game. For the cost, it is worth buying. With no monthly fee, I can play whenever I want.

I also like the option to create a PvP-only character that starts at level 20. Makes it easier to play with some hardcore friends. All the classes seem fun, so I’m not sure what I would choose yet.

Now the question is, will Best Buy honor my preorder since I lost (idiot) the receipt? I have the box and it says Best Buy right on it. I figure I’ll take it in and tell them they can either get $40 from me right now (and make a happy customer) or I’ll just pay $50 online from Guild Wars for the key and Best Buy will get $0. I’ll let them decide.

UPDATE: I called Best Buy and they told me that since I purchased with a credit card they will be able to pull up my order and credit me for the preorder. Possible good news there…

UPDATE to the previous UPDATE: Best Buy comes through. They pulled up my account and found the $10 preorder so I bought the collector’s edition (I’m a sucker for CE’s). The CE comes with some stuff I don’t care about, but the hard cover art book (while a bit small) is very nice and worth the extra cost. Any game that comes with an art book is almost a guaranteed buy for me.

  1. Hey, how is the soundtrack that came with the GW CE?? That is the one thing that might get me to buy it.

  2. I listened to it on the way to work this morning. It sounds like it is the music direct from the game. I liked it, but not quite as much as the WoW soundtrack. It’s good enough to keep in my regular driving rotation so far.

  3. Yes. the WoW soundtrack is excellent. My kind of music for working or reading. CE or not, that is the question. Decisions decisions.

  4. I don’t regret buying the CE. I enjoy the soundtrack (a couple songs are really great, have not listened to the whole thing yet), the art book is excellent and perhaps I will even use the headphone set. The “divine aura” or whatever it is called just puts some sparklies out of your hands when you do emotes. It is actually kind of annoying to me and I wish I could turn them off.

    Now to get out of the newbie area soon and really start playing…

    Edit: I listened more, the soundtrack makes for good background music. It doesn’t have much with power like some of the songs on the WoW soundtrack, but it is very nice to be able to listen to it.
