May 3rd 2009 5:40PM That's an ironic point to make, seeing as Warcraft is famously known for being a huge ripoff of Warhammer...
May 3rd 2009 5:39PM Yes, because the centre of the universe that so many consider the United States of America has *never* done such things! UNTHINKABLE!
May 3rd 2009 5:37PM Ignorance is bliss.
People in China who play WoW (which makes up for almost 50% of the game's playerbase, have absolutely nothing to do with goldfarmers.
May 3rd 2009 2:18AM Hey Mr. Fanboy.
If I can have a moment, I'd like to point out that you just criticised the movie for getting things wrong despite the fact that a number of the "mistakes" you pointed are in the things that are wrong.
Logan's claws *are* part of his mutation. They manifested as a child when he killed his real father for murdering his adoptive father and raping his mother, and that part of the movie is actually a very faithful rendition of the Wolverine origin comic, which is also called "Origins".
Emma Frost does has telepathy *and* a diamond skin secondary mutation, a power which was kick-started in the comic by Cassandra Nova. How is that inaccurate?
Gambit's accent in the movie was a hundred times more faithful to a *real* modern cajun accent than the vastly over-exaggerated ones that we've heard in past X-Men cartoons.
As for the movie, I didn't think it was particularly bad. It doesn't even come close to Watchmen, Iron Man, Spider-Man, or any of the other truly great comic-book adaptations, but as long as you don't take it too seriously, it's a decent excuse to waste an hour and a half of your life for some mindless entertainment.
Fanboys. Gotta love 'em.
Apr 28th 2009 9:56AM The Chronicles of Spellborn is actually an extremely good game.
I'm going to avoid bashing WoW because a horde of defensive fanboys will undoubtedly start parading on my post for airing even the slightest of criticism towards the game, so I'll just say that I've been looking for an alternative to the game for a while now.
TcoS is impressive so far, at least. And considering subscription is free for the next two weeks, anyone looking for something that's not WoW should definitely consider giving it a look.
Apr 27th 2009 3:40PM From my experience, *not* camping is the fastest way to get them all. And Azure Watch is definitely the best place to get them all as well.
Depending on the activity of the day, doing a constant circle around Azure Watch will net you a constant stream of eggs in next to no time. While everyone else is camping and waiting for spawns, you're picking up all the loose eggs that nobody is getting.
This means their spawns will appear faster, and so will yours!
I also noticed that there's one egg that everyone seems to miss. There's an egg that appears under the forge; not that one. On the right of the forge, an egg appears in a basket. I see people run past it without noticing all the time.
Apr 21st 2009 11:20PM Or to put it more simply.
"I may have a disability, but that doesn't make me any less of a person than you. And I intend to prove that."
Apr 21st 2009 11:18PM "It sounds like raids are an absolute feat of endurance for this woman, I would be interested to know why part fo raiding makes all the (I'm assuming) pain and difficulties worth it?"
I think that's easy to answer. The sense of achievement.
It's the same as solving a difficult puzzle, or winning a strategic boardgame, or getting most of the answers right in a quiz. It's not going to change the world in any manner, but its still an achievement.
And those achievements always feel great when you have to battle some adversity to reach them.
Like a blind man learning to get around by himself, or a deaf person learning to talk, or any other numerous examples.
Apr 21st 2009 11:14PM You're an idiot, AJ.
This woman is a living, breathing example of commitment that all those whiny, bitching, QQing raid fanboys who whine about every random change Blizz makes to the game. Those people could learn a thing or two from her.
I have no doubt you're reading this Lileya. I don't suffer from anything as severe as you do, but I can tell you right now that you're a hugely inspirational person. I'd love to have half the commitment to this game you.
I also think your husband deserves just as much respect. Both for standing by you (many of us would pray to find a person half as caring) and getting you into this game in the first place.
Good luck in future raids, and may you get all the epics you deserve!
Apr 21st 2009 11:07PM Pretty much, yes.
Though the pain numbs slightly after enduring it so often, its not the most pleasant of things.
