Breakfast Topic: Are you a WoW cross-dresser? {WoW}

Jan 7th 2012 10:09AM Guy--plays female draenei. Why?

Waggle.

2012 Predictions for Blizzard: Social features, pandas, and summertime {WoW}

Jan 6th 2012 3:23PM Considering the ever-growing number of cross-faction factions (e.g., the Ebon Blade, Earthen Ring, Cenarion Circle, etc.) and happy groups of npcs that are cross-faction (e.g., the Punch Darkwing in the Face group), maybe it's time to get rid of the hard and fast faction split.

Jan 6th 2012 3:17PM @Jordan: The dance studio has a kind of broad definition. They could just put in a flashy place to dance with music with a glitter ball and say "There's your dance studio".

So they will finally get around to turning the Exodar into a disco?

20 observations from a leveling tank {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2012 5:13PM I've been leveling a prot pally w/o heirlooms (about ready to FINALLY leave outland) and this was my first time tanking through a lot of the leveling dungeons. Holy crap -- are prot pallys indestructible or what?

(Usually aoe tanking, with some dps pulling like a ferret on meth)

The player behind the mysterious Mailbox Mage {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2011 10:15PM You know who else preferred raiding groups consisting of just one race?

Breakfast Topic: Have transmogrification limits stymied your character's look? {WoW}

Dec 18th 2011 11:45AM No. That would be awesome.

Plus, every fury warrior would be dual-wielding fish.

The Queue: Stat inflation, loading screens, Extra Buttons, and more {WoW}

Dec 17th 2011 2:13PM I hope they some day update the loading screens for a lot of the dungeons. Still having low-res screens in 2012 will make me a sad panda.

Seriously - they completely remade Deadmines, but couldn't be bothered to update the loading screen?

Cataclysm Post-Mortem: Uldum, page 2 {WoW}

Dec 12th 2011 7:55PM
"And to those who say the pygmies are racist, I give you this phrase:

Jamaican Voodoo Trolls. "

Most of the WoW races are based on some sort of stereotype: hard-drinking dwarves with Scottish accents, noble tipi-living earth-mothering native-american Tauren, etc.

But the dark-skinned pigmies that go "ooga booga" and then you smash them with a giant hammer crosses the line.

As do the money-grubbing, short, big-nosed new york city accented goblins.

That the goblins are "Schnottzees" blows my mind.

Cataclysm Post-Mortem: Uldum, page 2 {WoW}

Dec 12th 2011 5:58PM To quote Roger Ebert's review of North:

"I hated this zone. Hated hated hated hated hated this zone. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant player-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the player by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it."

It fails on so many levels:

* The player is the sidekick, not the hero
* The horrible, slow, endless, buggy cutscenes, with the camera often in the wrong place
* My character "cowers" all the freaking time
* Racism
* A little of raiders of the lost ark goes a long way
* It's a very very long trip to get to the (admittedly amusing) "follow slow-walking Brann" joke at the very end

And naturally, two of the three non-heroic level 85 dungeons are in Uldum.

Patch 4.3: Watch Dragon Soul's cinematics {WoW}

Nov 30th 2011 1:43PM "walk the earth?"

So Thall's decided to be a bum?

When did he make this decision? When he was sitting there eating a muffin?
