Is Project Fiona a miss for WoW? {WoW}

Jan 12th 2012 10:23PM That thing has 8 buttons... how would you play a hotkey based game like WoW on it?

Old Republic debuts in 10th, FIFA runs up UK charts before Christmas {Joystiq}

Jan 2nd 2012 9:46AM PC-only title sold less copies than multi-platform titles? I am shocked.

Breakfast Topic: Has the time come for Outland story updates? {WoW}

Dec 16th 2011 8:14AM Remove Outland and close the Dark Portal. Revamp Northrend storyline and squeeze all of 60-80 leveling into it (so that people actually see Icecrown and Storm Peaks while leveling).

Eventually reintroduce Outland as the starting zone for the inevitable Burning Legion Returns expansion. it could also serve as a starting zone for new outland races (Arakoa, Etherals, Broken, etc).

There, problem solved :P

5 things WoW could learn from Star Wars: The Old Republic {WoW}

Dec 13th 2011 1:14PM Yup, everything that's in a "bubble" should be voiced. Those cutscenes would look a lot less silly. Maybe a short summary of the quest, but not the whole damned description. I don't really want to wait (or skip through) a wholetalk sequence just to get my 16th "kill 20 sith-boars" quest.

The quest descriptions in WoW aren't translatable into voice anyway. Many of them contain descriptions of actions that the npc does ("Hello there, traveler" *farts in your face*) or even the thoughts of the player himself (many of the auto-aquired quests).

What SWTOR could learn from WoW is that some games just don't work with a cartoony art style. Warcraft does. Star Wars doesn't.

Ghostcrawler on the philosophy behind the Mists of Pandaria talent trees {WoW}

Dec 8th 2011 6:48PM @Drakkenfyre

What is so bad about removing 2/3rd's of a class' abilities? Fire mages never use frostbolt or arcane blast. Elemental shamans don't use the enhancement melee attacks. Affliction warlocks don't use the destruction fire spells in their rotation.

Healing classes not speced into healing will have a healing spell, the quick bursty one, the only one they ever use.

It cleans up the spell book and doesn't confuse new players by giving them spells that they're NOT supposed to EVER use.

Rumor: Senior Titan designer laid off by Blizzard {Massively}

Nov 8th 2011 2:11PM If he was a level designer on Blackrock Mountain and Booty Bay (not a dungeon, btw), then why don't I see him in the credits for vanilla WoW? He appears only in WotLK and Cata.

Zarhym weighs in on Theramore rumors in Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Oct 24th 2011 5:00PM Scumbag Metzen. Comes out in Alliance t-shirt and says "we owe the Alliance big time". Destroys Theramore. (need to make picture for this...)

That's all I have to say about it. 2nd Blizzcon in a row where they gave the Alliance the finger and then try to sweet-talk us with the "wait and see" promise :S

Patch 4.3 PTR: Inactive guild leader replacement {WoW}

Sep 30th 2011 3:15PM I'd bump it to at least 60 days.

Opt-out option incoming for recent authenticator security change {WoW}

Jul 26th 2011 8:03PM I have a PC, I don't have and don't want a MAC address! It offends me greatly!
