12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway: Swift Shorestrider from {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2011 4:50PM [savage]



The Queue: Everyone's sleeping ... {WoW}

Oct 23rd 2011 1:50PM The new column should be called something like "Beer Goggles," "Monk Goggles," or "Drunken Mastery."

I dunno.


The Queue: Red is dead, blue is coo' {WoW}

Sep 12th 2011 3:53PM With that pic, all I can think of is the human female /silly, "I like to fart in the tub."

Ah, the set name and the gauntlet/shoulder design seals it. Point taken. Put me on the Rag side of the fence.

Still, why a hood then? I guess that's the part that kept me glancing toward the ascendants as the set inspiration. I guess it's just to keep it magey.

Sep 11th 2011 12:45PM Maybe I'm crazy, maybe I'm just plain wrong, but isn't the T11 Mage (the one referred to yesterday if memory serves) pretty obviously based on the ascendant look rather than Ragnaros?

I mean, the entire rest of the tier is based around Cata flavored elemental stuff and references, so why is a hooded flaming skull, something clearly on many of the heads of the ascendants, linked to Rag? I mean, he has a sort or skullish look to his face I guess, but really?

Then again, some people swear that the tentacles on the T13 warlock helm are a duck bill.

Patch 4.3: Worgen racial mounts {WoW}

Sep 1st 2011 1:31PM This is just a case of "Well, if they weren't called Worgen racial mounts they'd be okay."

The fact that they are indeed being referred to as such has got to be ruffling expectations.

Still, I don't get why they couldn't just stick two more horses in with the rest of them at a vendor somewhere and call it a day.

so seeing somebody as simply another person instead of a forced label is dismissive?

Come on, man.

Yes, there are obvious heterosexual families scattered all over the
place in game, but, as mentioned several times before, there are more
and more examples of homosexual relationships popping up in-game.
When the game was first released, things had not progressed to the
point that they are today. I'd say that the representation homosexuals
have in the game is pretty fantastic seeing as the need to explore
sexuality is probably as far from the developers' minds as possible
(unless called for by lore/design decisions such as Illidan's
orgy-o-rama rooms). Things will also continue to improve as the game
moves forward.
In fact, I bet we will see more racially diverse character options
(for humans, at least... not sure how it'd work elsewhere) pop up once
the long in development character revamps roll out. I am of the
opinion that the black skinned white guys in game are just a result of
development time and restraints. It's just a texture swap on an
unchanging model. The fact that actual geometry changes with different
facial options in the Goblins is a good indicator of the future.

Comments like "doesn't mean shit coming from a heterosexual white
male. you're represented in spades." make you look as angry and
bigoted as those you accuse and attack. Take a step back, breathe a
bit, and look at the whole picture.
