Guild Wars 2 has been a long time coming. Years of previews, discussions, developer diaries, demos, betas and a head-start weekend have led to this point: Guild Wars 2 finally unlocks for everyone tonight.

Mike, Kate and I have been playing the game all weekend, and I personally have been enjoying the heck out of it. It's my first MMO, you guys! I'm in a guild and everything!
