So I was digging through the closet today and found all my old Guild Wars disks. (I have the first 3 campaigns: Prophecies, Factions, and Nightfalls). I went ahead an installed them all again. I wasn’t too surprised that I could max out all of the games settings and still have over 60fps constantly. One thing that I was noticing though was a higher latency than I do with almost any other online game, not exactly sure why this is but I was kind of put off by it. The game sure hasn’t changed too much in the past few years, well I guess there wasn’t much to change the game was pretty good back then. More after the break.

Whew, well it finally happened, I hopped on the computer this morning to check the never ending work emails and discovered that the Windows Update icon was up.

At first I had some doubts after reading about some peoples horror stories with the SP1 RC that dropped about a month ago, but I though “eh, Microsoft should have all the kinks worked out”. Looks like they did after about a 20 min download and install period Vista popped back up and ran better than ever. No system hangs, no copy file hangs, nothing. All of the problems that I was having are now non-existent. All thats fine and dandy but I still needed to try out some of the games and see if there was any performance increases or decreases.
