New Dead Island screens get up close and personal {Joystiq}

Mar 24th 2011 6:05PM I really, really hope this game has a "pushback" button like Left 4 Dead. I've come to feel that any kind of FPS that features a large number of melee-based mobs all attacking at once needs a way to get them away for a couple seconds. I tried playing Killing Floor and the lack of puchback just ruined it for me...

Mar 23rd 2011 1:28PM 1) My druid has full neough bags now without having to carry around gear for whole other class.

2) Zul'jin rehacks off his own arm every Monday morning in a misguided attempt to fuel his own rage and shame the elves. During the six days in between, he has a slowly growing baby arm flapping around under his shirt.

Patch 4.0.6 hotfixes for March 16 {WoW}

Mar 16th 2011 11:11PM "Flexweave Underlay, Parachute Cloak, and various rocket boot effects can no longer be used in rated Battlegrounds."

Blizzard seems to be trying as hard as possible to make rated BGs unpalatable for me. Very disappointing.

Around Azeroth: Old meme is new again {WoW}

Feb 18th 2011 6:52PM The new badger video. Probably NSFW due to profanity.

The Queue: When is patch 4.1? {WoW}

Feb 17th 2011 12:41PM Question: In my recollection of WoW's hundreds of NPCs, I feel like almost all of the dragons I've met were in Blood Elf, Night Elf, Gnome or Human form, with a strong predilection towards Blood Elf. Is there any lore behind why we never (that I can recall at least) see dragons as Tauren, Troll, Orc, Goblin, Draenei, etc... or is it merely an aesthetic choice on Blizzard's part?

The evolution of zerg dungeon farming {WoW}

Nov 19th 2010 1:10AM I agree that a lot of boss mechanics have become trivial, which makes running Utgarde Keep all the more confusing to me. People basically ignore things like Loken's nova or Garfrost's stacking frost debuff, yet they still hide behind pillars like frightened schoolgirls when Ingvar does his transition roar.

Honestly, what is so scary about a move that hits for something like 5k? Someone is going to say it's avoiding the silence, but as a caster I've never experienced a problem standing in it. I deliberately stand in it when I'm in H UK to say, "NO INGVAR, YOU WILL NOT SCARE ME WITH YOUR PIDDLY ROAR."

15 Minutes of Fame: PvE twinks turn lowbie instances devilishly difficult {WoW}

Nov 4th 2010 4:05AM I'm assuming you meant "min-maxed" there?

Cataclysm screenshot of the day [Updated] {WoW}

Jun 1st 2010 9:41PM Haha! Water levels have been the source of some pretty inspired game music. Upon seeing that picture, the music from the underwater levels of Donkey Kong Country on the SNES started playing in my head. I hope the music is appropriately Cousteau-y (or Zissou-y).


Phat Loot Phriday: The Fire Extinguisher {WoW}

May 7th 2010 11:02PM You should do an article on the Luffa someday. I remember it was a relatively uninteresting quest reward from some level 50 quest that all raiders were suddenly required to have to "properly" kill Moroes. Of course, Blizzard nerfed it when they suddenly had millions of players asking to have the damn thing undeleted.

Shifting Perspectives: Gearing a new bear at 80, part 3 {WoW}

Apr 28th 2010 1:39AM Excellent (and fairly cheap) cloak that will last you an unreasonably long time is the Leatherworking BoE Durable Nerubhide Cape.
