Don't know if any of you have been following Wildstar
I've been very excited for this, since I hear about it last year Nov
it sounds like a very interesting twist on the sandbox MMO.
It also happens to be really unique looking- reminds me of a pixar movie
What do you guys think?

I have also been following it. I actually signed up for the beta in early 2011 but I haven't heard anything back about being accepted.
I was reading on MMO Champion (I think) a couple weeks back about their predictions for MMO's in 2013 and a lot of them were backing wildstar as a sleeper hit.
As it stands I will probably be trying it out on release looks fun and doesn't seem to take itself too seriously, which is always a plus in my books

Yes I signed up for the Beta too but so far no luck-
I actually saw an interview with Colin Johansen from GW2 the other day when he talked about it a bit- it is looking really good and the graphics are great- it does seem to have a sort of wacky sense of humour to it which I really like.
It looks like you can pretty much be anything you want and the game changes according to that- from the footage I saw it looks really dynamic- I just hope to god they have dodge!
I like the Sandox elements :)
- I will definitely be checking it out

I'm not a big MMO supporter myself... But when I saw the very first cinematic / trailer released for it - LONG before we knew anything else about the game - I was SERIOUSLY interested!!!
If it wasn't for the label "MMO" I would honestly be considering grabbing it day 1!

I was looking around and found this:
it explains the crazy concept that is Wildstar really well-
a lot of it reminded me of GW2 in a sci-fi ish setting
Interestingly I then found this:
seems I am not alone in thinking this.
All in all it is really looking good and I can't wait to see more of the game :)

Do we know if it's buy & subs, or a download & FTP with Cash Shop?. Being a GW2 zealot, I am unlikely to play any other game on a perma basis, but this does look fun. The graphics are cartoony, and although not to everyone's taste, I personally think it looks very entertaining.

Don't know- I'm hoping for BtP myself- I will never play a sub game again if I can help it and I'm a GW2 zealot myself as you know ;)

It does look like wacky, tongue in the cheek fun, personally I feel the graphics suit the game well and it certainly looks unique but yeah I can see some people being put off by the style and the humour for that matter
What I would also very much like to know is if the faction you choose is account wide or only for a specific character.
I have a hard time choosing and I would really like to play both.
Same goes for the different paths/play types- aghhh I am not sure what to call it: explorer, builder, warrior, settler etc
