What the Raid Finder's success means for the future of accessible content {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2011 4:33AM More importantly for hardcore raiders, it means that Blizzard can continue to fund raiding content out the arse like they used to. I think we can all easily imagine the Blues cutting down raids if LFR didn't pan out - the writing was on the wall with how few bosses there have been lately, with the mediocre scripting and terrible voice acting.. they put their eggs into the better, more accessed basket, the dungeons, because they are pretty damn good for how short a time you spend in them.

EA not releasing Syndicate in Australia, notes 'arcane censorship' {Joystiq}

Dec 20th 2011 6:19PM Funny that EA actually brings up the whole notion of "censorship" since they're supporting the SOPA bill..

12 Days of Joyswag: Batman: Arkham City game, controller, shirt {Joystiq}

Dec 13th 2011 11:50PM Yeah, sure.

Mob Rules Games wants you to vote on its next game, for free this time {Joystiq}

Nov 27th 2011 9:17PM I'm going to re-post what I said on their website:

"The issue with your first idea was that, well, we simply don't know your pedigree. How do we know you can put out a decent game if you haven't made any yet? While I liked the concept of "Last Second", I didn't like it ENOUGH to put my money on it with such a risk that it may not get made.

What if the game loses? I just wasted my cash on some other stupid dreck I don't want (Really? Guerrilla Gorilla?). What if you guys aren't very good? Then my investment hasn't paid off, again. And really, that's what it's about - you're asking us to invest our money into something, and you're coming right out the gate saying "Oh, the game YOU invested in may not get created and you may just end up wasting it entirely." You think you may be drawing in 3x the number of viewers, but really you're only going to draw the same number, and then cut off 2/3rds of them at the end of the development cycle.

I know my comments may sound brutally honest, but they're aimed at being critical, not spiteful. I don't want you guys to pack up and leave, I want you guys to improve how you present your ideas to us. What is your past history with games? I want to know what you worked on (without having to google for the info). I want more than just a brief game concept.. which leads into another point.

To be (even more) frank, waiting around for voting is not doing you any favours. You could be working on a game RIGHT NOW!, but instead you're twiddling your thumbs and waiting for us to vote one way or another. You're delaying a release by putting these voting stop-gaps along the way, and it makes you seem uninvested in your ideas and wasteful with your time and money.

Cheers!"

This retro Metroid cosplay is without equal {Joystiq}

Makes you wonder why nobody has thought of this before.

Patch 4.3 PTR: Streamlining changes for Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman {WoW}

Oct 5th 2011 3:31AM I just wish they'd've removed trash instead of making you only have to complete two bosses. I mean, on my alts I still need items from them. :/

Arcane Brilliance: On mage healing and other miscellany {WoW}

Sep 24th 2011 8:15PM The issue is that a step like this may be necessary in the future. With some mmorpgs coming up that allows a player to be whatever they want, or are removing the Holy Trinity altogether, Blizzard may be playing catch-up with a slowly growing trend.

But if they do it, hey need to do it fully. And with ALL the classes. Rogue tanks (combat), Mage healers (arcane), hunter tanks (beast master), warlock.. Tanks I guess (demonology)? Make all the classes hybrids, or don't go through with it at all.

Ol' Grumpy and the Goblet of Firelands adjustments {WoW}

Sep 22nd 2011 4:09AM I imagine their reasoning is that they want more players ready to face Deathwing on patch arrival, and to stave off that "pre-patch/expansion lull" that is currently ongoing.

Seems like a smart move to me. /shrug
