Neil Armstrong died, but by now you probably know.

Guild Wars 2 is up, and has been since 10pm last night. I had my first character created within about fives minutes to ensure I kept my name, and I’ve now reserved all the ones that I really want.

No big issues so far other than some lag early on when everyone was level 1. They’ve added an FPS readout on the options menu, and my laptop is getting around 16 FPS with everything on high other than sampling.

And Guild Wars 2 must be popular, because one single post on the subject was hit with a dozen spam comments overnight.
