The Queue: What's that, Deathwing? {WoW}

Oct 9th 2010 7:27AM Whats going on with professions in the beta atm? They seem to be about the only thing we aren't hearing anything about.

Breakfast Topic: Which vanity pets have captured your heart? {WoW}

Sep 29th 2010 8:42AM 112 and counting...

Blizzard giving serious consideration to mandatory authenticators {WoW}

Jan 8th 2010 2:21AM My guess is they will make a free windows/mac version just like the free iPhone version on the app store.

That way they not only cut down on the costs of the Support department, but they also completely remove the initial (and ongoing) cost of getting the physical authenticators manufactured and distributed.

Downside being it would likely get reverse-engineered pretty quickly. Whether that matters in this case i do not know.

Yes, we know some stores have Cataclysm release dates {WoW}

Dec 12th 2009 12:25AM "The entire preorder business model is a scam."

It has its uses. For example, when wrath was first announced, i was the second person to pre-order at my EB store. I asked them about collectors edition and they said that once its announced and they knew how many copies they would be getting, they would start at the top of the list and call customers, asking if they wanted a collectors edition, until they had sold them all.

Without preordering, getting a collectors edition is extremely hard.

Breakfast Topic: Will you miss the Old World? {WoW}

Aug 27th 2009 8:43AM Ill miss Ashenvale. As a constant night elf player, it is the only zone outside of Teldrassil that has (at least in part) the distinct feel of the elves. That was one of the things that really pulled me into the game when i first got it. I was highly disappointed that the moment i got there i picked up a quest sending me to Stonetalon.

Ahh, the memories :D

The rise of the Failoc, Blizzard's unwanted mascot {WoW}

May 16th 2009 12:23PM That haiku is wrong. Haikus are 5/7/5 Syllables.

As i read it, the first line has 6, while the second and third lines are right:

'Oh, the fa-il Mur-loc'

Drop the 'Oh' and its all kosher :D

LotRO two-year anniversary giveaway: Mines of Moria Collector's Edition {Massively}

Apr 24th 2009 9:17AM Easily the soundtrack. I have been getting used to CEs coming with soundtracks in recent years, and have been a big fan of the WoW soundtracks in the past.

The music in LOTRO is absolutely brilliant. It sets the mood perfectly everywhere you go, whether it is the brooding darkness of Angmar or Moria to the light and cheerful music in the shire, to the sometimes mournful sounds of the elven parts of Ered Luin. You can really /feel/ the emotion in the music at times.

Just brilliant.

Breakfast Topic: Patch 3.1? Already? {WoW}

Mar 14th 2009 9:19AM Dont forget that during Beta Blizzard stated that they are always a good number of builds ahead of what we get, so we are always going to be playing an older build.

Computerworld on Blizzard's Warden at work {WoW}

Mar 10th 2009 5:57AM I cant be the only person to have picked up that the linked article is almost 2 years old. May 2007.

Countdown to Wrath Giveaway: Day 7 - BlizzCon Polar Bear Mounts {WoW}
