A live stream showing some live combat was shown at 10am est. Pretty sure we will see plenty of videos this weekend. Many we will see later today.

This is awesome. Recorded Live Podcast with Interviews. It is their first time setting up such an operation. I think they did pretty well. It's pretty long with quite a few pauses. 1 hour and 50 minutes.

the more of these videos I watch, the more I want the game. Do they even have an idea as to when it's going to be out? Like Holiday or Quarter?

They haven't said anything about any release date. Recent Q&A with some devs(added to OP)was stated that they are in the middle of PvP development.

Which makes me think that release date could be near the end of 2011 to as late as mid 2012. Alpha and closed beta testing this year. Still no definite news about an open beta being planned.

I really don't think they have a release date in mind. Sure they have a set date with NcSoft for the games progress. But I think when they say 'When it's ready' they really do mean it.

Yeah, I know. It just seems to well set-up that I'd like to see Beta's happening now and then the game being out soon. From the other side though, the areas that we've seen so far might just be one of half a dozen areas that are actually finished and the other 80% of the game is still being worked on. I want the game done and want it well done, I don't want them to rush it, but there's still that part of me that's bored out of his mind and wants the game NAOW!!

I strongly suggest people to watch this video. It is the same video I posted Friday March 11th.
I wanted to comment on this video. The players you watch are Anet guys and gals. Shows how much can be done with this game. Their combat skills and the natural way they cross profession combo are fantastic and I am really impressed. PvE is looking great and I am soo itchin to see what PvP is going to be like.
I have no doubts that this game is gonna rock. Sure there are some issues I have about the game, but all of these issues are completely minor and none even come close to be a gamebreaker for me. GW2 can not and will not be The Almighty in MMORPGS. None can, at least for the moment. But GW2 comes pretty darn close.
I can not wait to be able to do events and dungeons and stories with my guildmates. We are gonna have an awesome trip.

as I've said previously the more I watch these videos, the more I want the game. Given that there's no timeline for release yet, I think I need to stop watching them...although it would be cool if the beta started on the same day that the GW1 beta started...which, iirc, should be soon.

Still more PAX East Stuff added to the OP. There is still more to come. I am not posting links to videos unless it is not related to the previous links. Some of the previous links are links to sites that have videos that are still being added.
