Guild Wars 2, Music, and Stuff

Guild Wars 2
So, if any of you are gamers, I'm sure you've noticed that Guild Wars 2 officially launched yesterday. Personally, I've been playing since the 25th, because I prepurchased the game... And what a game... I'm having a total blast, loving everything about it so far.

And I'm inviting anyone interested in the game to come join me on the Darkhaven server, and if it suits your liking, in the guild I created... incidentally named "Back From Purgatory"... I had actually just made the guild to check out the systems, I didn't expect it to go anywhere, but then I used my 1k influence boost on the guild... so changing the name now would be kind of a waste.
But yeah, if anyone's interested, feel free to join me in game... I've no big plans for the guild at all, aside from just having some fun and getting some guild upgrades. And better yet, you can join more than 1 guild in Guild Wars 2... which means you can both be a part of my shitty guild and a more serious one if you so choose!
So yeah, feel free to hit me up in game, my "tag" is: BFPurgatory.6935

So... As some of you are aware, I put up a new preview of a song going on my album a couple weeks back, however, I've since updated the project with a slightly newer, longer version, which includes the entire first section of the song, and I re-recorded the guitar part in the beginning, because it felt kind of sluggish before... So if you haven't already, please do check it out and let me know what you think so far!
Awakening (Updated)

Misc Stuff
I changed up my profile pictures (Including my forum signature) again... but this time it doesn't really have an overall theme aside from including some of my favorite characters from one thing or another.
So, I'm opening things up for theme suggestions again for my next switch... because I can, and because I'm too lazy to come up with one on my own. So... Go nuts!

And just because... here's some really nice music I found recently, a bit different than what I usually share... but I absolutely love mellow stuff like this:

What a nice, and beautiful version of Owen was here, I love it >.<
By the way, I'm sad that I can't play GW2, I'd surely join your guild if I'd be able to play on this server..
And ! (there's something more !) Awakening will surely be an amazing song !

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Can't really see my guild going anywhere either way, as it stands, there's only 1 other person in it.

And I hope so.

Can't believe I'm saying this but I would like to shake your virtual hand for putting an end to some of the worst threads out there, m8.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

You're welcome, I guess?

Damn, I would certainly be enjoying the hell out of that game right now if I could run it at >10 FPS.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

It is quite a beastly game, I'm running with most settings on medium to low... And it's still a pretty gorgeous game.

Me an Xports are thinking of getting it, but he thinks I'm gonna give up on it after a week so he isn't sure.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Best MMO on the market in years IMO... And better yet, no subscription fee, so you're under no obligation to dedicate hours upon hours every month to playing it.

But yeah that's the only reason I want to get it. I like MMOs but I'm not willing to pay for the same game every single month. I understand they need the money to keep the servers running, but it doesn't seem worth it to me.
I played a lot of free MMOs before, but the ridiculous pay to win shit always makes me give up on them after a couple weeks.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I know exactly what you mean... I've played my fair share of free to play MMOs... and most of them are really bad for being "Pay 2 Win". Fortunately, there's no such pay to win thing going on in GW2... It does have a "cash shop"... but 1: Nothing in there gives you a clear advantage over other players... it's mostly cosmetic stuff or more bag space/character slots... at most, xp boosts (Which you can also get as drops off monsters/events).
And 2: You can get Crystals (The premium currency) using in game gold... I've bought 200 crystals already using gold I earned in game... which is enough for a few different things... but personally I'm saving up to get myself more character slots before anything else.

Fuck I can never catch you on steam. I dunno if you need the community beta shit for this whole greenlight thing, but you should thumbs this up cause I really want it to pass. It seems like fancier Reccetear

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I don't open up Steam all that often anymore, and when I do I'm usually set to appear offline... so yeah... I'd be pretty hard to catch.

But yeah, that looks like it'd be cool, I'll give it a good ol' thumbs up.

You must be the nicest mod ever.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

And what makes you think that?
