Breakfast Topic: How would you redesign the old character models? {WoW}

Mar 29th 2012 10:46AM Blizzard's never gonna make multiple models for a single race, but they need to burn down the male human model and start from scratch...it's awful and always has been.

More variety! Normal, realistic facial expressions instead of perma-frown/growl faces. Non-Caucasian face options for Humans. The end of "handpaws". More variety in hair style and color choices; there's no reason why an Undead can't have well groomed hair or a Human can't have a purple mohawk. Long hair that moves in a more realistic way. Better running/sprinting animations for everyone (except Draenei and Blood Elves, they're fine.) especially Humans and Dwarves. Better casting animations for certain races/sexes; Night Elf male mages look like they're going to melt their own face off while casting most offensive spells, etc.

Breakfast Topic: Did you accomplish your Brewfest goals? {WoW}

Oct 6th 2011 9:37AM Watched as a guildie had the either the ram or kodo mount drop for him every. single. day. of Brewfest. Got all the trinkets, a remote, the title, and two tankards, but still disappointed and irritated. Yeah yeah, it's random...doesn't mean I have to like it.

Time Capsule torn asunder, no "server grade" hard drive inside {TUAW.com}

Jun 27th 2011 9:47AM In Applespeak, "server-grade" is a pretty mundane description...shouldn't it be like "mystical", "magical", "revolutionary", or "incredible"?

Breakfast Topic: Are you a closet roleplayer? {WoW}

May 25th 2011 9:22AM I've played both WoW and LotRO, and I felt a lot more comfortable RP-ing in LotRO. Even on an RP server, not that many people actually RP, and those that do run a fairly high risk of being harassed. LotRO, on the other hand, does a lot more to support RP-ing right out of the box. Personal homes, guild halls, cosmetic outfits, etc. all add to the "quality of life" of a role-player and make it a more acceptable choice for players. Maybe that's why we have more closet role-players in WoW.

Breakfast Topic: Are you satisfied or disappointed with minor glyphs? {WoW}

May 24th 2011 9:13AM Boring minor glyphs are just another example of what I consider to be WoW's only major weakness...customization. Blizzard simply doesn't seem to want to give players anything that differentiates them cosmetically from other players.

Breakfast Topic: Have you ever taken time off from WoW? {WoW}

Apr 27th 2011 4:45PM I was in a large guild on Proudmoore. About 2 mos after WotLK dropped, I was over it. Playing had become a chore, and when I decided that I didn't want to heal anymore (at this point I'd been raid healing since vanilla) I was basically told "if you don't heal, you're not on the team." So, I quit. About 6 mos later I ended up on Moon Guard in a small, but really great guild with some people I work with and others, DPSing and, on occasion, healing.

AT&T iPhone sales unaffected by Verizon launch {TUAW.com}

Apr 20th 2011 9:49AM Guess the rest of the country doesn't hate AT&T as much as the TUAW staff, despite your best efforts.

Farewell, Internet {Download Squad}

Apr 12th 2011 5:05PM This sucks. AOL sucks. You guys will be missed.

Verizon iPhone 4 owners report fewer dropped calls than AT&T customers {TUAW.com}

Apr 5th 2011 5:24PM AT&T is the George Soros to TUAW's Glenn Beck.

Blizzard comments on Outland and Northrend leveling in Cataclysm {WoW}

Apr 1st 2011 10:51AM I don't why get people are lumping Outland & Northrend together. Outland is a clunky, boring, tedious mess that you walk out of looking like a garish clown. (Which I mostly avoided by mining, leveling Archeology & doing randoms.) Northrend's quests, rewards, and overall flow are a lot closer to what we have in Cata.
