New Velvet Assassin trailer misappropriates Churchill's famous speech {Joystiq}

Mar 17th 2009 11:15AM If you're familiar with the song, it's not too much of a stretch. Churchill's speech repeats the phrase "We shall fight", while the song has the lyrics:

"We will fight, or we will fall, 'til the angels save us all"

Could have been a perfect transition from speech to music, however with that lyric available it does seem like an odd choice to keep it instrumental.

Mining mechanics changed, one hit per node {WoW}

Jan 7th 2009 6:06PM Correct me if I'm wrong, but couldn't you gain skill points every tap before, aka, get 4 skill points per node? It seems like this change would limit you to 1 skill point per node, thus making it take a lot longer to skill up mining.

I may be wrong, I only mine on an alt I almost never play.

Forum post of the day: Pick up groups to pick up points {WoW}

Dec 17th 2008 3:18AM "I just wanted to point out that all savage gladiator gear is available for massive amounts of honor points in stormwind. 50-60k per is expensive but not impossible. Could you guys here at WoWInsider please make a post explicitly stating this? I don't think many people know about it."

If the above is true, I have no problem. However, all the research I have done contradicts this. For example:

http://www.wowhead.com/?item=41949

The Savage Gladiator mage set requires, according to wowhead, and everywhere else I've checked, either honor and arena points, or Emblems of Heroism, which only drop off Heroics and raids.

I am in a casual guild of my friends from real life. We occasionally will run an instance together if we happen to have 3-5 people together online in the same level range, but that is by no means commonplace.

I'm often more motivated than my casual friends, but don't want to quit the guild to join a group of strangers, which is why I was always glad Blizzard had a set that I could get by hard work I put in alone.

If I can grind honor in the BGs and get a set, I'm completely happy with that. I don't care if it takes me 20 times longer to do than it would in a dedicated raiding guild or arena team. But if what I'm reading is true, it seems impossible for the solo player to gear up.

The New Xbox Experience: What do you think? {Joystiq Xbox}

Nov 19th 2008 3:05PM As someone who has a second 360 set up specifically for media streaming, here's my two cents:

First: I couldn't get media streaming to work at all. When i first turned it on, all my media was listed there, but not playable. When I backed out to change the video source, I got the dreaded "No Videos Found"

Second: Videos are now listed 6 to a page instead of 9. For someone with as much media as I do, this is a big deal.

Third: We lost the ability to "sort by title" and "sort by type" and the default is sort by title. I preferred the folders first look, and now my loose media is all mixed up amongst my folders.

These may sound like minor annoyances, but I cant help but feel that XBox took something they did really well and made it mediocre.
