Breakfast Topic: Where's the best music in WoW? {WoW}

Mar 4th 2012 1:30PM Good old Brill tavern, period.

WoW Moviewatch: World of Warcraft is Dead {WoW}

Jun 17th 2011 12:51PM I've been playing the AH since '07 and I've never see the AH fall so low... But you'll undervote my comment anyway :/

WoW Moviewatch: World of Warcraft is Dead {WoW}

Jun 17th 2011 12:15PM It isn't dead, but it's dying. I can see it as sells on gems, glyphs and everything have been plumetting since february... on top of that, every guildmate I knew since vanilla is gone. I'm staying for an additional month because of the patch, if not, I would have left a few weeks ago.

Breakfast Topic: Have you spotted your own game design ideas in game? {WoW}

Mar 11th 2011 8:46AM Yes, I kept talking about the reinforcement points since AV was released.

Razer Switchblade mobile PC gaming concept unveiled {WoW}

Jan 7th 2011 6:09AM @Cowfodder: Your nettop runs great because Zotac added a goddamn GF9400 to the mix. Most Atoms got an Intel GMA950 which performance is on par with a Geforce2Mx from 10 years ago... and a bad GF2MX from a crappy manufacturer, not the good ones. The only improvement is that the GMA supports Dx8.1 level shaders which only help things go worse. There are even relatively new netbooks (hello HP minis) that even have a worse graphics chip than the one I just mentioned.

I hate Atoms because I had one. Upgraded it to 2gb, removed Win7 and installed a XP stripped to the bone with some modded graphic drivers that also improved performance a bit... and got a 40% improvement over default factory settings... Yet the 40% performance increase in WoW meant going from 12fps in Undercity to ~19fps. It was fine for auctioning, nothing else... In Dalaran it was like 1fps. Go type in your WoW /console farclip 60, that's how I played to be able to do 5-mans at ~7fps.

Jan 6th 2011 7:02PM @Drakkenfyre: Though Quake III Arena runs good on an Atom, Quake Live does NOT... Even disabling ALL in-game textures, particles, lightning, etc... the hardware would fail to provide a decent framerate most of the time.

The Art of War(craft): Random thoughts on Cataclysm PvP {WoW}

Aug 13th 2010 5:10AM How can you even talk about world pvp? Have you even tried the beta?

With that overdone phasing in cata, world pvp is beyond dead.

Breakfast Topic: What do you do while waiting for LFG to pop? {WoW}

Jan 11th 2010 8:52AM I turn on the Genesis and play some Street Fighter, or Sonic, or whatever.

Blizzard: Arenas were a mistake. {WoW}

Nov 13th 2009 6:13PM I said it the very first day I heard about arenas... A minimalistic-competitive-pvp environment within a MMO game? WTF?!
