Joystiq impressions: Lock's Quest (DS) {Joystiq}

Apr 5th 2008 10:40AM How does this compare to Pixel Junk Monsters?

Awesome Metroid II fan remake three years in the making {Joystiq}

Mar 21st 2008 1:36PM Imagine if this dude had worked on something with his own IP. Then in six months he could sell it and make money off of it and people could play it. Instead he'll just get a cease and desist and no one will be able to see his work.

Halo 3 bought by 52% of US Xbox 360 owners {Joystiq}

Dec 17th 2007 8:21PM 52%? That seems awfully low.

Bob Hoskins: Super Mario Bros. was a nightmare {Joystiq}

Aug 4th 2007 11:02AM The Mario Bros. movie is pretty much the perfect example of enjoyable retro-camp. The sheer amount of smack-your-head what-were-they-thinking moments and the outright hilarious terribleness of the whole thing are highly enjoyable in a way that most bad movies, even ones most people say are "so bad they're good" aren't.

The fastest class to level with? {WoW}

Jun 18th 2007 6:44PM A Protection speced Pally can level amazingly quickly if they know how to. (It involves killing five mobs at once).

Ex-Nihilum member claims guild exploited {WoW}

Jun 3rd 2007 10:51PM I assume by "I don't like their recruitment policies" you mean the no girls thing, which I thought turned out to be a joke.

Nihilum - Four world kills in one day {WoW}

May 27th 2007 12:28AM I think what happened here was that you just saw about two or three months of guild progression that should have happened starting in March or so that didn't happen until now because all of their gear was underpowered. Now they've still been GETTING all that gear, so now that it's at the power level that it should be, they're going through all of these encounters. If the gear had been powered as such beforehand then the boss downings would have been more gradual.

Ask WoW Insider: How's WoW performance on a Mac? {WoW}

Mar 30th 2007 2:58PM Well ... the Mac Mini doesn't have a video card so you can run the game, but that's about it. You pretty much have to have all of the settings turned down. The same goes for Macbooks (no videocard). They can run the game just fine, but they don't do it especially well.

Macbook Pros (the silver ones) DO have videocards, and generally run the game very well, especially if you load them up on RAM. The mid- to high-end iMacs run the game pretty darn well also.

Of course all of these new macs can also run Windows and if you play in Windows you'll probably get a 10-15% higher FPS rate (although this difference goes down with each patch as the mac version gets closer to the PC version).

Breakfast topic: Worst corpse run {WoW}

Feb 28th 2007 8:51PM Dying in Raven Hill cemetery before they added the ability to rez from there. It was actually faster to fly from Darkshire to Westfall and then run to RH than to go from Darkshire to Raven Hill. Thank god they fixed that.

Breakfast Topic: What's the noobist thing you've ever done? {WoW}

Feb 10th 2007 4:19PM So I hit level 30 or so and get the Alliance quest where you have to go half way across the world and talk to Jaina Proudmoore. At this point in the game I was experienced in crossing the ocean and had been to Ashenvale for a good chunk of my leveling. But I didn't know there was, in fact a second ship at Menethil harbour that went to Theramore. So I went to Ashenvale, walked through the barrens, and through duskwallow marsh. It took me forever and a half because of all the ganking. Then when I got there I saw the ships and felt really dumb.

Related, though not especially noobish, when I first went to Booty Bay I ended up going to ratchet and taking the boat to BB, because it was faster than corpse hopping from bored 60s camping corpses.
