You don't have to tolerate racism in WoW {WoW}

Nov 28th 2007 1:25AM Like others have said, words do have power. While over a medium such as the internet all they have the power to do is hurt your emotionally, in real life words can easily lead to violence and death. All people have a right to live their life free of persecution, yet not all people get that right because certain people feel they have the right to take that freedom away from them.

What right does a person have to tell someone how to live their life? What right does a person have to tell someone they are sick or evil because of something they have no control over? I guess straight, white people would have a harder time imagining persecution, as they have not had to experience it nearly as often as other groups have throughout the course of history.

So imagine, if you will, that you had to worry about your safety, and the safety of your family. Imagine having to fear being turned down for work, housing, or medical attention. All of this solely because of the color of your skin, your sexual orientation, or gender identity. Imagine that you were beaten just because you were white. Or that you where turned down a chance to live in a decent neighborhood, just because you were straight. Being left to die on the street as medical professionals laugh at you, just because your gender identity matches your physical sex.

These types of stories play out all the time for people who are different. These are the kinda things many people out there have to go through each day, just because of who they are. And it's the people who make hateful comments that also make life harder to live for these people, that turn them down when they need help the most. I turned around true stories to match the common American, the standard norm so to speak, so you might imagine what life might be like if you weren't the norm, the standard, the "typical" American.

You see what bigotry causes? Nothing but pain, and sadness. Mothers and fathers, brothers, sisters, children, adults. All of these people get affected due to hate speech and hate crimes.

You say homosexuality is a lifestyle choice, but I say you are wrong. Can you really choose who you fall in love with? Can you choose what features you are attracted to? You might be able to condition yourself to like a certain feature, but generally people don't do that, so what they express is who they are deep down. That isn't a lifestyle choice at that point, it isn't your decision. Like someone else said, why don't you tell me when you first "chose" heterosexuality as your "lifestyle" choice? I seriously doubt that you can. The reason for that is because you didn't "choose," instead you just felt that was right and natural.

Another thing that is so wrong about all this is that due to the supposed anonymity of the internet, people feel they can get away with bad behavior. Would you really go up to a gay person and call them a fag to their face in real life? Would you use the N word against a black person? I'd sure as hell hope not. So then why do it in the game? It can hurt just as bad there as in real life, and is just as wrong too. And if you would do that in real life, well, I just hope you get what's coming to you very soon, so maybe you'll think twice about it next time. We don't need any more hate crimes, and a hate crime can easily start out with hate words, building and building until violence ensues. Stop the hate speech, and you'll help curb some of the hate violence.

Anyways, maybe I repeated myself a few times, maybe not. I sorta wrote this from start to end, and then popped back and forth editing, adding, subtracting. I'm pretty spent now though, but seriously, you can't talk about this too much. There is still too much hate in the world, and until it stops you can never fight for equality too much. Sadly I doubt I'll live to see a world like that, but hopefully my brushes with the darker side of humanity will be few and far between.

Cheating on WoW {WoW}

Nov 27th 2007 2:42AM I cheat regularly, it's in my blood. Currently I'm juggling three games right now: WoW, EVE Online, and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. Eventually I'll finish up the first Sly Cooper as well, and I've nearly beaten several other games that I'm am taking a break from at the moment. Ones that come to mind are Pokémon Diamond and Kingdom Hearts. Until I can afford to upgrade my computer and/or get a next gen console, my cheating on WoW will be severely limited, though ;P

Where did you get your WoW name? {WoW}

Nov 14th 2007 5:54PM Most of my names come from the randomizer, my favorites being Tamoraylva (Night Elf Druid) and Solarria (Blood Elf Priestess). I just adore TamTam's name, even though she has slipped from main status for the time being. Incidentally, she appears to be the only Tamoraylva out there, according to the Armory, making her name pretty unique. ♥♥♥

My main is named Churi, a Draenei Hunter. She is named in remembrance/honor of my first ever character, a Night Elf Hunter by the same name. The name itself just came to me, which doesn't happen very often. But when it does, I usually love it. I also recently created a Human Mage named Sonsaku (Sown - saw - koo), named after the character Hakufu Sonsaku from Ikki Tousen.

I used to pull names from words in obscure languages, particularly colors, but as of late have been too lazy, what with the randomizer and all ^^;

Pleasant patch surprises {WoW}

Nov 14th 2007 1:09AM I'm loving all the pretty new icons. Also, I swear that my frame rate was doing better. I also noticed they changed things around in the video menu, and it might just be me, but it seems like there was at least one new option. Nonetheless, if my FPS can keep up at the levels it did upon login, I'll be super happy! ♥♥♥

I'll probably find other new things as I play some more. Hopefully they'll be good things, rather than bad.

/Silly: Shadow of the Colossal Mistake {WoW}

Nov 12th 2007 11:59PM Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant I say! This one still has me in stitches every time I look at it or think back on it. Reminds me of the time I tried prowling into Undercity not too long after getting my cat form. Ended badly not too far into traveling downward towards the city ^^;

Playing WoW with an Xbox 360 controller via Switchblade {WoW}

Nov 6th 2007 4:19AM This is something I've wanted in MMOs for years, although I still have yet to grab a controller for my computer. I was raised on consoles, not computers, so that probably has a lot to do with it. You guys are right that this system is ill-suited to raids, large scale healing... probably PvP as well. Classes that need a large amount of spells probably won't see as much benefit from this as well.

But for the rest of us, especially those of us who spend more time doing PvE than PvP (I'd do more PvP, but my computer is sucking at the moment. I'm lucky I can even play the game right now), who don't like to spend eight plus hours welded to a keyboard and mouse, this should prove a nice alternative.

Sure, you will need to run back to the keyboard to chat, and the mouse for menu intensive things, and both for the stuff you can't easily do with the controller, but when you are grinding for whatever reason (quests, items, gold, seeing how long it takes for your eyeballs to burst into flame), a controller would help make it more relaxing. You can get into better positions and everything with a controller for one thing, and I'm sure there are plenty of other good reasons too.

As a Hunter, on average I really only use 4-6 buttons for ranged attacks, four for my pet, and 3-4 for close range. Camera and movement mapped to the joysticks. Tab, Escape, and my main bag (using Baggins, opens them all at once) mapped to something as well, and I'm basically set. That right there will still leave me with empty slots on the controller, depending on the mapping capabilities of the software, so that shows you right there it's workable... at least for me. I'm at level 46 ATM, before people start asking.

Well, that's my 2c. I personally don't care what you think of it, I still say this is a great idea. Now I just need to go and check out the Wiimote one ^-^
