I found that often while playing through Guild Wars 2 I would talk to myself. Very rarely do you get to play a game where you are surprised or impressed as often as I was.
It was the scale of World Versus World, it was poison slipping over the edge of a reservoir, it was the compensated threat mitigation associate, or the design of skills like Rocket Turret. There were just so many moments where I paused for half a second and said, “Oh, cool.”
One of those moments was meeting the quaggan. Moogooloo village to be precise. It wasn’t so much their names, or the design of their villages. And they were much smaller than I had envisioned, only coming up to my waist.
But my god, my god, the voice acting.
Their cuteness is unparalleled. Whoever wrote what they say, whoever directed the actors, well done. The quaggan will be far and away one of the most popular aspects of Guild Wars 2.
It’s all in the delivery. You could just mail in a line like “Coo! Quaggan likes you!” I mean how do you even portray that out of context? Yet it is delivered with such unending enthusiasm. The quaggan sound so darling, so cute, and some of what they say is almost musical. HOOooh.
I found myself just repeatedly greeting them to see what they would say next. They are big on the ooh sounds. Boo, Hoo, Moogooloo, Foo, they could not be more adorable.
Okay I’m done being a little too excited over something cute.
