Hey, I just watched this trailer for guild wars 2:
http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gc-09 ... rs-2/54629

It starts out with a nice 2D animation, all skeletal, zoom and parallax, no 3D models. I wouldn't mind a game looking like that :)

It could be confusing though!

holy f'in crap dude
yeah the 2d was beautiful and inspirational for 2d game making
but goodness dude
I felt the same way when I saw guild wars1
the graphics in game are sooooooooo f'in good

I only played a trial of the first game
and I really liked the type of powers you could get, and how the fighting was more than clicking on a monster and watching them slide their walking animation against you and do a biting animation once every 4 seconds..[size=30:13z6hh3h]world of warcraft[/size:13z6hh3h]
I just didn't have time for an rpg

anywho, beautiful looking game
and thanks for sharing the 2d thingy

Wow, that 2D Guild Wars intro has to be the most beautiful 2D artwork I've seen. Much more artistic and pleasing to the eye than 99% of 3D scenes out there.

Always wanted to make a game look like that!
As soon as I get a bit better at 2D painting...

Reminds me of the animation in the PSP Metal Gear cut scenes :D
