Proof of the best character in Guild Wars 2 as collected by me and Jen - as Tyria’s most faithful, dedicated and only professors of Farenology, if we don’t archive it, no one will (even though that’s terrible). The people need to know!! Or like, read the first couple of paragraphs and give up, anyway. This thing is long.
WARNING: VERY image heavy under the cut.
This is the most amazing and comprehensive GW2 character tribute I’ve seen yet. My favorite bit is here:
Someone wrote that line, put it in there, scripted that dialogue bubble to pop up over a carefully rendered model of a man with a moptop wearing a codpiece and a cravat, had accomplished American anime and video game voice actor Yuri Lowenthal read it out loud, and then put it in their multimillion dollar worldwide blockbuster video game, and everyone was fine with that. And yet some people don’t think ArenaNet know what they’re doing.
Hahaha! I might have been a major part of that process. >_> And the awesome Fancy Cat lines are pure Peter Fries.
This post makes me wish that all the best Uptown Johnny lines hadn’t been cut. He was deliciously sleazy and I loved it, but we ended up having to shave down all his lines for various reasons. Ah well. There’s still Faren.
