Watch this Street Fighter x Tekken video and feel smart {Joystiq}

May 13th 2011 3:47AM Pretty sure this is only teasing Cammy. First three shots are obvious and the in the fourth you can see parts of her ponytails. Final silhouette is her again.

The Queue: Turtles, horses and name origins {WoW}

Nov 15th 2010 1:14PM Or it's shortened from "goatee" which translates to Ziegenbart in german. Maybe Alex' ancestors wore them a lot or (even worse) made their living off of herding goats...

Also, how the hell didn't anyone ask this until now: What WAS your mother's maiden name?

The Queue: Turtles, horses and name origins {WoW}

Nov 15th 2010 1:04PM Actually they will function like the Valley of Trials or Coldridge Valley. They're only a seperate sub-zone for leveling up to about level 5, after that you progress the same as orcs or dwarves respectively.

The Queue: Veronica Day {WoW}

Nov 1st 2010 1:36PM Well, being the spoilsport I am I feel the need to explain the headline for today's Queue. The shown NPC is named VERONICA and was voiced by The Guild's own Felicia DAY.

BUT as it's November 1, and you're probably a saint it's still your day (although you'll have to share it with the other saints)

OnLive supporting overseas play (if it works) {Joystiq}

Oct 15th 2010 5:24AM I feel the need to point out that the "german" beta is actually for the nation of Luxembourg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luxembourg) and probably isn't even available to citizens of Germany since the ISP their partnering with doesn't operate there.

Shifting Perspectives: Answers to questions nobody asked, part 2 {WoW}

Aug 4th 2010 6:27AM Improved LotP is now integrated into the main talent but is no longer a group buff, Only the Druid gains life/mana.
I'm not sure if haste increases energy regeneration, I'm picking up gear with haste on it to test in the coming days actually. The tooltip in the character screen doesn't mention it, though.
Regarding your last point, picking Feral as your specialization reduces the cost of most attacks, although Shred's cost has been reduced to 50 Energy for all specs.

Rumor: Activision pulls Wolfenstein in Germany over swastika use {Joystiq}

Sep 23rd 2009 1:28PM Oh, they did! Most of them anyways. But they missed one texture it seems.

P.S. The original post mentions this in the first paragraph...

Rumor: Activision pulls Wolfenstein in Germany over swastika use {Joystiq}

Sep 23rd 2009 11:01AM Their logic is quite sound:

1. Distribution of media containing swastikas is forbidden by law in Germany, because the swastika was used as a symbol by Hitler's party. (There are exceptions to this, but Wolfenstein doesn't fit into these)
2. They pull Wolfenstein from shelfs, cause leaving it there would mean them knowingly breaking the law. Which would probably mean, they'd be fined in court.

Nobody accuses Activision of supporting facists or anything like that. They just did a sloppy job altering their product for the german market.

Sep 23rd 2009 10:43AM Oops! Meant as a reply to "The Baron" regarding my linked picture.

Anyway, a fun fact for all the people bashing Germany for it banning swastikas: This law originally was conceived by the "Four Powers" while rooting out the NSDAP after WWII. Germany merely adopted it into it's legislature. ;)

Sep 23rd 2009 10:36AM Yep! It seems not many people noticed it in the first place, since the game was sold for almost one month in Germany without any official institutions intervening.
