Jan 20th 2010 5:27PM And here I thought I'd never see WoW players make an Anne Rice reference. Go Talamasca!
Dec 30th 2009 6:01PM This is the reason I couldn't go on with a human female DK. She had a sword as tall as she was, but she swung it around like it was some kind of fairy wand.
Dec 17th 2009 7:22PM I dunno...I'm more uncomfortable with the j!nx "locked chest" t-shirt than anything Sacco said. I'd probably gush over a cute male model in the same way, just before stopping myself to realize that nobody wants to hear me gush for more than one sentence.
@Sacco, I would humbly offer this advice/wisdom for the future: Sometimes, we gamer ladies (and ladies in general) get surrounded by vulgar buffoons who see women as objects. And sometimes, we might snap when a well-meaning guy makes a comment that sounds like the crap we're used to hearing. And sometimes, that reaction can be unfair to the guy in question. However, I believe it's better for everyone for the gentleman to simply respond with, "Oh, what is it about what I said that made you uncomfortable?" And then, "Thank you for telling me." Even if you disagree, or feel she's overreacting - she just wants to be heard. And it won't hurt you to hear her for a minute. You might (justifiably) think that your intentions were pure and that you don't deserve such accusations, but when a woman makes a complaint like this, remember that it's not necessarily about /you./ It's about something bigger than you.

You know what I kinda wish they'd come out with? Faction leader t-shirts. I would totally sport a tee with "VICTORY FOR SYLVANNAS" emblazoned on it! And I know hordes of Hordies would love a Thrall shirt. Even "minor" leaders like Sen'jin or High Tinker Mekkatorque could be fun. And the jerks like Garrosh and Fandral Staghelm. So many possibilities!
Oct 17th 2009 5:37PM I was wondering if there would be any trans gamers willing to pipe up. Right on!

Jul 9th 2009 3:46AM I have mixed feelings about the idea of the "hearthstone walkie-talkie." I think my biggest hang-up is, when I try to imagine it realistically, I get this image of everyone in Azeroth walking around everywhere, all day, with cell phones, or those bluetooth headsets in their ears, being just as annoying and thoughtless as modern people who do the same. Talking to guildmates at the moonwell, talking to them in the cathedral in Stormwind, talking to them in the barbershop...arrgh! I can't stand the thought!
But I suppose it's much less annoying if you imagine it being used more like a trucker's CB radio; a lone rider traversing the wetlands, as a hiss and a tinny voice emits from the hearthstone attached to his saddle. Not so much a way of being constantly "plugged-in," but simply a way of keeping touch. Though, as much as it irks me, maybe the idea of the hearthstone as a bluetooth-like device could be roleplayed for comedic effect. (The image of a hearthstone set, glowing, within someone's ear canal is too easy to imagine...)
And! To the folks saying that there's not much precedent in the lore for any type of device that can send sounds or images across the world: what about Draenei technology?! One of the very early quests in the Draenei starting zones involves a holographic device that the survivors of the crash use to communicate, Princess Lea-style. And if you factor in their usage of crystals and minerals in their technology, it seems like the Draenei could easily produce a stone that allows people to communicate. You could choose to see the hearthstone as a primitive antecedent of the same basic technology, or even as a Draenic innovation, new to Azeroth...but yes, point being, THERE IS PRECEDENT in the lore!
