Who changed the graphics? Impressed.

A few days ago I updated the graphics driver on my (old-ish) laptop, and last night I logged into to WoW. The change was immense. Where the old display was set for speed, the new one seems to be be set back to a max setting.

Translucent water and particle effects look wild, and the animations are so much more … fluid. Who knew the game had grass!

I had no idea the game could look so darn good. The bad (because there is always a bad…) is that now I want a new laptop. Time to start doing more overtime at work I guess.

Happy Killing, TyphoonAndrew

GuildWars 2 Video in impressive

Ever gamer watches what the studios are doing, and the folks making GuildWars2 have been busy.

That is in-game footage, not some artsy production video that teases with affects which you’ll never see. Looks like a darn wide selection of beasts, toons, locations, and spell affects. Warts and all, they’re putting it out there and I think it looks awesome.
