Ghostcrawler reveals upcoming class changes in Cataclysm {WoW}

Dec 28th 2010 1:50AM Would you rather go back to the days when we had more free-reign over our talents and abilities but had to rely on websites like Elitist Jerks to tell us what the best specs, talents, rotations, gear and enchants were in order to optimize our class?

They're only 'holding our hands' because they've realized that:

A. There are a LOT of complicated variables that the average player wouldn't understand. That's why they simplified the stats system and added the 'newbie' tooltips.

B. If they give us too much free reign with not much direction, the theorycrafters and number crunchers will ALWAYS find the optimal way to play.

I think Blizzard has found a nice balance between guiding us so we know how to effectively play our classes, and giving us enough free reign so we have some customization as to how we play our individual toons (through less rigid talents and the improved glyph system).

Also, giving each spec a set direction greatly helps with the devs ability to balance and fix a class. We don't want to go back to the days where specs like sub rogues and BM hunters had no place in groups because they didn't have any direction on how to play them in a competitive raiding environment.

Drama Mamas: Breakup drama {WoW}

Nov 27th 2010 2:37AM I'm with CeilLothar on this one.

It doesn't matter how true it is that Broken needs to grow thicker skin and accept control of what she can. If people dismiss it as 'meh, she's an immature kid, GTF over it,' that's not helping. It's unhelpful, insensitive and ultimately only makes the recipient feel worse than she already does.

To those people saying they were like once her and grew up - think back to that time. When you come to someone for help and advice, how did you want them to respond? With respect and genuine care, or a dismissive, patronizing attitude?

Drama Mamas: Breakup drama {WoW}

Nov 27th 2010 2:12AM @nih - It sounds like to me you're criticizing the whole point of this column. If you're criticizing the writer for wanting attention on a public forum, you might as well criticize every single person who's ever written into Drama Mamas.

Not to mention that if they really craved attention that much, they'd ask to have their real names or character names published and not be censored.

Nov 23rd 2010 4:01AM Also, kudos to Dailen for mentioning the Great Bay Temple music in the Steam Vaults...good to see I'm not the only one who thought of that ;)

The Queue: End of the world {WoW}

Nov 23rd 2010 3:57AM While I can understand why Ocarina of Time is considered the greatest Zelda game ever, Majora's Mask will be the one that has the most personal value to me. The game was so ethereal, surreal and creepy compared to all the other Zelda games, and it tugged on so many emotional strings when I played it at 12 years old.

Ocarina was an classic, epic swords-and-sorcery adventure. Majora was much more subtle in its storytelling. The most emotional moments of the game weren't the ones where something wide-scale and epic was happening; it was the harsh realization of how the inevitable end was affecting the populace of Termina. It was seeing the Skull Kid lament the loss of his friends. It was seeing the little girl in the music box house fearful for seeing her father turned into a Gibdo.

And I don't think I even have to mention Kafei and Anju. The single most powerful (and slightly fearful) moment of the game was waiting in Anju's room for Kafei to show up, just as the clock struck 4am - two hours until the moon fell. And their brave words - 'we shall greet the morning... together' - rang echoes of emotion. They were finally together, just as the world was ending. It was a most joyous but also a most terrible moment. I think of those words every time I hear this song.

WoW Moviewatch: How to win at guilds {WoW}

Nov 11th 2010 8:24AM I'm definitely a combination of the know-it-all and the lore guy. I spend all my time telling reading WoW websites (including WoW Insider =P), telling people how to spec and the going off to talk about lore on the official story forums lol.

Scarlet Blouse Gentleman receives NPC for fact checking efforts {WoW}

Oct 31st 2010 11:08AM Seconded with the first-hand experience. I'm a diagnosed aspie too, and even though I've come leaps and bounds with overcoming my own problems, I feel for and hugely support someone who is still struggling with the symptoms of the syndrome. Few people understand just how big of a deal it is for someone with asperger's to get up in front of a crowd and perform any act of public speaking; someone I know once described the anxiety an aspie feels in a situation like that is the equivalent of what most people feel during their driving exam. What seems like a tiny emotional burden is amplified tenfold for someone with the syndrome. Now imagine feeling that way every time you feel the slightest tinge of stress or anxiety – that’s basically the kind of problem I had to deal with during my childhood and teenage years, and what this guy was probably going through when he got up on stage.

This guy has balls. Massive, rock-hard boulders, and he deserves kudos for doing what he did with the condition he struggles to overcome. Someone give him a cookie!

Oct 5th 2010 11:48AM Ragnaros: TOO SOON, EXECUTUS! THEY'RE RELEASING CATACLYSM TOO SOON! WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS RELEASE DATE?
Majordomo Executus: These mortal infidels, my lord! They have failed to meet their deadlines and have pushed back your raid dungeon!
Ragnaros: FOOL! YOU ALLOWED THESE INSECTS TO RUN BEHIND THEIR DEVELOPMENT SCHEDULE? AND NOW YOU REDUCE ME TO A CONTENT PATCH? YOU HAVE FAILED ME, EXECUTUS! JUSTICE SHALL BE MET, INDEED!

The Queue: Launch day {WoW}

Oct 4th 2010 11:08PM @Thunderblade - That last line reminded me of another quote about dragons.

Skwisgaar Skwigelf: Are you telling me they are out of dragons?
Stage Hand: They never HAD dragons
Skwisgaar Skwigelf: Who didn't?
Stage Hand: THE WORLD!
Skwisgaar Skwigelf: GET THIS GUY OUT OF HERE! FIND ME A DRAGON!
