Mar 19th 2009 11:09AM I hate voice chat for a variety of reasons, and only log on to Vent for raids. Even then I question its usefulness when most raids these days are just a zergfest. It was actually more useful back in the Molten Core/Nefarion days. I can see its use for preformed BG groups as well, but otherwise I can't stand it.
Mar 17th 2009 11:21PM It was a great game in its prime, and I had alot of fun with it from Kunark to about the Luclin era. I think it would have been better if the tribute had shown the progression and how much the game has changed, starting with old models and content and moving forward.
The Freeport in the video is NOT the Freeport I remember!
Mar 17th 2009 11:14PM They just keep churnin' em out don't they... and Massively keeps posting articles about them to a largely disinterested audience.
Mar 17th 2009 11:09PM I actually think achievements are a great thing for the casual player. There's no pressure to do them with any particular speed or in any order, and many of them are solo pursuits.
Mar 13th 2009 12:27PM Yep, tired arguement indeed. The same thing was beaten into the ground with Everquest. Nostalgia, rose colored glasses... move on people.
Mar 13th 2009 12:24PM The term "Mary Sue" is problematic and has been criticized by a number of authors. People read fiction, particularly fantasy, as a means of escapism. It only makes sense that some of the characters, particularly the protagonists... will be "over the top" in some ways.
Every character from Odysseus to Sherlock Holmes and Frodo could be considered a "Mary Sue". To me it sounds like a term some disgruntled English professor came up with after he couldn't get his book published.
Mar 10th 2009 11:54PM I remember a quote somewhere about the reason Pandaren were not in the game was because of China. If they can remove skeletons in the Chinese version, they can do the same with Pandaren. It makes Blizz look like a bunch of tools bowing to censorship themselves.
Mar 10th 2009 10:45AM What if I like Family Guy, South Park, and King of the Hill? Am I confused?
Mar 5th 2009 6:53PM About time this holiday got some love! It was (along with that little autumn feast thing) the lamest of ingame holidays.
