Howdy folks!  

For those that don't know me, my name is Richie and I've been making Guild Wars 2 videos since the spring of 2011.  I'm one of the hosts of Gamebreaker.tv's GuildCast and I'm also a livestream host for Massively.com.  I'm going to update this thread going forward when I release new videos and I hope you enjoy them.

Interesting to see/hear all the GW2 fans talking. Your also quite amusing, have to agree with clevermoose as well. Glade you get your stuff right too. Can't say how annoyed I get when I listen to misinformed people. Will bookmark this to keep watching your new vids.

This guy is on some seriously awesome happy pills, but for the most part entertaining, and informative.

Been subbed for awhile, even before channel change. :P

I updated the original post to include my latest Tyria Talk video.  In episode 21, I discuss the differences between a gear-based MMO (like WoW) and a skill-based MMO (like GW2).  What are the advantages and disadvantages of each system?  Which style do you prefer?

The original post has been updated with my latest video and it includes Neo as a special guest.  He swears there is no spoon.

In episode 22, I discuss incentive in MMOs. What keeps players interested in a game when they hit max level? Do you need to be able to get increasingly more powerful gear to keep you playing or is that just how we've been trained to think from other games?

Thanks everyone.

No I didn't paint that avatar, but I have hired the artist that did to make a logo for me.  Should be ready soon.  It looks really awesome.

Thanks for the feedback!

I really liked your rundown of incentive in Guild wars 2; very succinct. Do you mind if I use it to try and persuade others?

I updated the original post with a link to my latest video:  Tyria with Tots.  My sons have been hearing me talk about Guild Wars 2 for a long time and during the recent beta weekend event, I let my 6 year old create a character and play with me. In this video, he creates a character and prepares to start his journey into Tyria.  I hope you enjoy it.

I just uploaded part 2 of my son's adventure during the beta weekend.  He's done with character creation and is unleashing his human ranger, Ice Blaze, to the world.  Let's see what kind of trouble he gets into this time:

My latest episode of Tyria Talk is now up and the original post has been updated.  In episode 25, I discuss the debate about whether GW2 is a PvP or PvE centric game?  Does such a label matter?  Why do folks think it's one over the other?  Check it out:

Howdy, folks!  It's another episode of Tyria Talk.  In this episode I discuss whether or not Guild Wars 2 needs more tooltips and an integrated wiki in order to explain it's awesome features to the players.  And for all you fans of things fluffy, Snapples makes an appearance!  Like, share and subscribe!  Thanks.

New Tyria Talk episode is now live.  I've updated the original post and put the link below.  This time, I chat about all of the updates ArenaNet has made and will be showing off in beta weekend event 2! What is the Mystic Forge? Mini-dungeons in World vs. World? New zones, UI tweaks and smarter overflow servers are all among the changes we'll see. Check it out!

Beta Weekend Event 2 will begin on Friday, June 8th, at noon PDT (GMT-7) and will run until Sunday, June 10th, at 11:59 p.m. PDT (GMT-7).

Note that this video was created before the GW2 AMA on Reddit today where lots of questions were answered.

Howdy!  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  I have a new video posted which discusses the new tiered traits system they introduced in the second beta weekend event.  Watch the video and then let me know what you think of the new tiered structure.

Keep up the good work, Richie!

I think that the tier system is a necessary evil at this point.  It would be awesome if they figured out some way to keep the open-ended trait system from before, but indeed that would be a balancing nightmare.  Also, I know I wouldn't feel a sense of progression if everything was opened up from the start.  Since this game is not "gear based", the gear progression doesn't fill in that role, which is important to keep people's interest for PvE.

Thanks for the feedback, Zephyria.  I agree with your points on progression and I do think they went through all of the options quite extensively.  It may not be the ideal system or the option with the most freedom, but it's probably wise for them to put in the fail safes they need to balance the game.

I'm updating the original post with my newest video.  In episode 29 of Tyria Talk, I answer a question I get asked a lot:  Should I play Guild Wars 1 before Guild Wars 2 comes out?  Check out my thoughts on the matter.  Share and subscribe!  Thanks:
