Waiting for GW2 - Or - How I started playing Rift.
So I was looking for something to play while waiting for Guild wars 2 to launch. A few weeks ago, I remembered that I had purchased Rift in a steam sale quite some time ago and never even installed it.

I'm actually going to be leaving this account active for a while even after GW2 shows up. I'm enjoying it quite a bit. From the rift events to the complete dungeon queue system and the flexible classes, I'm finding quite a bit to like here.
Dungeon queues are a carbon copy of wow, so they just work. The instant adventures assure that you're always able to play in a group and gain significant progress even while waiting for groups to form up or for that scheduled raid event.
I just find it a little weird that there is basically no talk of this game still on the forums. I know it probably had it's rough period, and they basically cribbed quite a bit from other games. But, I'm tired of playing those games. Apparently, I'm not necessarily tired of the systems themselves.
