Nov 12th 2009 5:15AM Their press release is wrong. There was a version of the King James Version made for Game Boy back in the 90s.
Dec 19th 2008 3:38AM With the Night Elf/Blood Elf language thing, a better example to use would have been Vulgar Latin's split into French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Romansche etc. English hasn't had enough time really to split.
Aug 22nd 2008 8:30AM If you'd been following the whole thing, you'd know the Black Guard was supposed to have been a Dark Elf class... Seeing as the Black Guard are Malekith's honour guard. They were never a Chaos thing.
Aug 21st 2008 1:12PM The lack of female greenskins would be because in the Warhammer world Greenskins are basically sentient fungus. As for male Witch Elves, there are none. A Mahbid (bride of Khaine) can only be female. The men that the temples of Khaine take in become assassins. Dunno about the Chaos tank tho.

May 19th 2008 12:10PM Not being funny but if the comment was racist then you wouldn't be writing:
"Since you (perhaps wisely) didn't specify what the message actually read, it's difficult to judge the severity of the situation. A lot of guys who are otherwise mature adults sometimes joke around in a way that could be construed as homophobic, but typically no offense is meant. It can be good-natured smack talk, but it can also go too far and get truly offensive."
Homophobia is not only as wrong as racism, sexism and other "isms" but it is currently the only form of intolerance that is accepted in the mainstream. Regardless of the severity of the comment, the very fact that it was homophobic requires immediate action.
I find it very sad that this kind of bias is still existant.
Feb 11th 2008 1:26PM The post isn't saying anything but "Treat women with respect" something you clearly cannot comprehend. You also advocate women joining the silent majority of male heterosexual players. Sorry but it doesn't work that way nor should it. Also responding to a post with swearing is hardly an adult way to debate an important issue not only in game but in real life.
As far as I'm concerned women gamers are an important part of playing WOW. Both my sisters play and often we end up questing together and prove that they can more than hold their own with the boys. This machismo and general pig-like behaviour of most male gamers is pathetic and unfortuneatly isn't reserved for women but also for those of us who happen to be gay.
Just my two penny worth :D
