Nov 21st 2009 6:00PM Probably not going to play much WOW this weekend as it's already midnight in ye olde Europe and tomorrow's a good old-fashioned Pen and Paper Sunday. But my hopes are up for more epic gear flowing towards my alt-gone-main Shaman.
Oct 20th 2009 2:22PM 3-4 Raids a week is casual? So what's hardcore then, hard-wiring a mouse into your forearm and only getting up to drain the septic tank you use for a seat?
But anyway, yeah, sweet home cinema system, and definitely not on the cheap side, but I've seen similar systems already. Only thing I'm really envious of is that he has the space to "waste" on something like that...
Sep 24th 2009 8:45AM Let me illustrate this with a handy graph: *draws a circle* This circle is stuff I care about. *draws smaller circle intersecting it* this circle is 310% mounts. *Draws third circle at other end of room* These are holiday achievements.
Quite the predicament. Especially the uncanny fact that I've been playing for four years and have, almost like clockwork, missed Children's week every single time since year one.
Sep 18th 2009 11:44AM Ah, Garrosh. When I first met you in Garadar, I wanted to give you a couple of good ol' hits across the noggin for being such a crybaby. Now that I've met your new you, I wish I'd have hit you much, MUCH harder.
It's guys like Garrosh and Varian that make me wonder if letting the Scourge win wouldn't be the better idea. At least then it'd be quiet.
May 13th 2009 6:48AM Well, it works. Of course it works now that my four-hour lunch break is over and I have to get back to university.
Life is hard.
May 11th 2009 8:01PM This is what you get when you let your management be overrun by people who think that selling games is the same thing as selling sacks of potatoes. Or in this case, more like tennis shoes or magazine subscriptions or something.
And as far as I see it, understanding copyright law is like wrestling with a block of Jello. You might be able to tear off a chunk here and there, but ultimately, you'll just cause a great mess for yourself and end up tired and angry.
Apr 24th 2009 8:10AM Well, the Howling Fjord looked better, but I enjoyed the Borean Tundra quests a lot more.
Apr 14th 2009 8:17AM Where's the complimentary "Meh" option?
Mar 25th 2009 4:14PM I'd have to agree with you on the boob tube part (A boob being, of course, an abbreviated word for a kind of water fowl and nothing else. No siree) given that I if I did mind that sort of humor I couldn't turn on the TV at all these days.
Mar 18th 2009 12:49PM First and foremost: You people are reading WAY TOO MUCH into a WOW-world event. Seriously, deflate that "my god, this is catering to deviants" argument before somebody pops it and everybody takes splash damage from all that hot air.
So yes, of course there is a difference between being able to summon and unsummon an orphan in game and real childcare, its so bloody obvious that the only thing that concerns me is that fact that you pointed it out. And lets face it, some people do terrible things with piccolo flutes in WOW. But I digress.
I always practiced a kind of "storm in-dust off" approach to nannying, being on a PVP server. I rode into the place, let the kid see what he wanted and sped off again before the 20-something rogues camping the spots (and each other) had a chance to even think about unstealthing. With the new and slightly worrying achievements I'll probably hone this skill to an art form.
But I primarily summoned and unsummoned so often because I felt sorry for the kid, what with him/her having to jog behind my mount all the time, despite the blasted wolf obviously having enough room for two. Heck, judging from the size of the kids, I could comfortably seat 2-4 of them on each of my shoulderpads and still have room for a travel-fridge.
