Jun 14th 2007 4:30PM They really should make a parellel zone to STV for the 30-40 range and release it in a content patch. STV is the zone that EVERYBODY hates and I think another zone to use in that range would be appropriate. A zone tying in the new BE/Draenei conflict would be a good thematinc one I feel, perhaps another island off the coast of Kalimdor for it's setting?
Jun 13th 2007 8:17PM This has less to do with banning games and EVERYTHING to do about making yourself look good when election time comes around.
They know the bill is unconstitutional is going to fail. They know they're going to waste millions of tax payer dollars.
But they also know everyone who votes for the bill gets to make a nice little campaign ad talking about how "Jim Johnson voted to keep violent and sexually explicit video games out of your children's hands. That's values you can trust!" around election time.
And God forbid if you vote this down because you know it's unconstitutional: "Jim Johnson's opponent, Steve Stevenson, voted AGAINST a low to keep violent and explicit video games out of your kids hands. Vote for Jim Johnson, and tell Steve Stevenson you want a candidate who cares about our children"
Jun 11th 2007 3:29PM I dunno, every once in a while you run into somebody who screams "Gold-buyer".
I remember pre BC I was in Stormwind when another warrior asked me where I got a piece of equpiment. I noticed he was standing next to me. I inspected him and EVERY SINGLE PIECE of his equipment was an AH BoE.
A couple of them were decent if overpriced (think he was dual wielding a Krol Blade and a Assassination Blade. But some of his amor choices made ZERO sense. He had a Lionheart helm, but he also had a purple CLOTH Flarecore mantle. He had caster stats item. Made me sad.
Jun 10th 2007 4:37AM Holy crap, that was all kinds of amazing awesomeness.
My favorites were Mac cheating at the Power Pad, Warior's "I'mma gonna win", and of course, dropping the Nintendo Fan Club bit.
Jun 9th 2007 10:29PM I don't think Nihilum or Death and Taxes represent the average members of their nation at all.
Really, of the top U.S. vs. European guilds, it's only like a couple hundred people representing gobs of countries. Not a very good sample.
Now, from my outsider perspective, it seems to me that Nihilum, especially in this round of clearing seemed to sacrifice a lot more for their clears. There is absolutely no way what they accomplished is compatible with the "work come home and WoW". Now is that because America work harder? Or are Europeans more flexible with their work schedules? Are American players worse at working in teams? Or are their much more Nihilum European players living off the government welfare system and able to play 12 hours a day?
I'm not going to comment, because like I said, I don't think you can turn WoW progression into any kind of sociological commentary.
Jun 9th 2007 1:10AM Too bad the voice of the original Starscream (Chris Latta) isn't still alive to reprise his role.
Jun 6th 2007 11:39PM This is completely backwards of what Blizard should be doing.
They should allow guilds like Curse, Nihilum to blow through all this "new content" in a few weeks with their 8 hour a day play styles.
When they whine about the lack of new content Blizz can state
"We gave you content that would take even an above average players months to advance through. You chose to devour it all as fast as possible."
They need to start discouraging these "first" guilds just like they discouraged reroll locusts. Catering to them is NOT good for the health of the game and the majority of the players.
May 30th 2007 2:37PM 10) Wario (Mario series and Wariorware)
9) Superman (Superman 64 and every other horrible game he was in)
8) Michael Jackson (Michael Jackson's Moonwalker)
7) Dr. Robotnik/Eggman (Sonic series)
6) The Ruffians (Viva Pinata)
5) Burger King (Cheapo Burger King games)
4) Bowser (Mario series)
3) Psycho Mantis (MGS)
2) Jack Thompson (Fantasy Land)
1) The Dog (Duck Hunt)
I have to add a couple characters to the list, because I don't think RPG's were represented.
A) Someone mentioned Kefka, although he gets off on being kinda cool.
B) Kain from Final Fantasy IV, for double crossing you 50 BILLION times.
C) And the almightiest douche of all time
POKEY FROM EARTHBOUND.
If you've played the game...enough said.
May 29th 2007 8:37PM Although it's not a play (and really Little Red Riding Hood is more a fairy tale and Wizard of Oz were a series of books.) I really do like the idea of Alice in Wonderland.
The twist is, though, that it's set up as an "escort" style quest. You have to help a little girl named "Alissa" survive waves of monsters. She has a few special abilities.
She has a few "small cakes" that cause her to shrink down and cause enemies to stop targetting her.
She has a small vial which she can drink to make her grow large, cause her to do a lot of damage, and replenish her hitpoints.
A vorpal blade: Only can be used in the last fight.
First wave: Mad Hatter, March Hare
Second Wave: Chesire Cat, Queen of Hearts.
Third Wave: Jabberwock. Must use the Vorpal Blade when it's hitpoitns are below 10% or it will regenerate.
