Oct 23rd 2009 2:29PM Even if the sticker price of the Wii 2 is the same as it was for the Wii when it was first launched then what we are talking about here is a product that tons of people were willing to pay for in the past, but now it comes with HD and possibly even more goodies. I'd say it is a win/win situation for consumers and Nintendo.
Jul 21st 2009 5:46PM I believe that the hardest part when it comes to Natal will be moving your character around. I think they would be much better off doing exactly what they are doing right now except include a wireless controller sort of like the Wii Nunchuck. It needs to be something small that fits in your hand while still allowing you to use that hand (not fingers) to interact with Natal's motion and camera control technology just as if the player wasn't holding anything at all. This device will allow the player to move their character around using a joystick while still feeling immersed inside the video game world like MS envisions. I would also add a button or two just in case. It will not meet the 100% controllerless goal that MS is striving to achieve, but I do think it will be more fun this way.
Jul 16th 2009 9:00AM Follow the orders from the leaders that stormed your jail, killed your guards, and released your prisoners without as much as a phone call first?
No...I think that alone is plenty for someone to distrust those leaders and cease to follow their orders. Leadership positions need to earn respect in order to keep their power. That is how the checks and balances work. They are not to be followed like some sort of blind faith.
Jul 15th 2009 8:49AM After breezing through some of the comments I realized that people need to read more carefully. The question was not asking you what you would do if you could not raid. It was asking you what you would do if you could not raid Wrath content.
Personally, I never got the chance to finish certain content back in the vanilla WoW and BC days. I would enjoy being in a guild that was willing to turn XP off at 60 to finish the raid content that I missed. I also wouldn't mind doing the same thing for level 70 to finish Sunwell.
Like many players out there that never finished that content at the level it was designed for, I have gone back and finished it at 80 but it doesn't feel the same at all when you are just using brute force to rush the bosses and not care about any of the loot.
Jul 14th 2009 5:47PM If it were just an in game threat then I would argue that it wasn't a very big deal considering in game threats of all levels of seriousness happen every day by many different people.
However, this part makes all of the difference:
"The eighteen year old later told Johnson County sheriffs that he "was going to board a plane at 7:30 to Chicago and that (he) was going to try and kill as many Americans as possible"."

Jul 7th 2009 9:09AM Yup. Trust in the tool tip.
Also, Eliah Hecht might want to consider doing more research before posting articles like this in the future if you want to produce quality journalism, blogs, etc. Reading other people's comments is fine, but you check your sources. ;)
Jul 7th 2009 9:04AM I am not going to argue for or against allowing us to use those XP bonuses, but there is no way that Blizz will allow it.
They didn't even allow us to fly in Northrend until level 77 because they wanted us to experience the new content in the way it was intended to be experienced. The same argument can and most likely will be made by Blizz when it comes to these XP bonuses.

I might be slightly more sympathetic towards the side of the argument that you are presenting except for the fact that these days their business model has changed. It is now leaning far more towards trying to secretly place malicious software on a victim's machine, hack their WoW account, and make off with the stolen profits. They are not farmers as much as they are thieves and not the Robin Hood kind of thieves either. I don't have sympathy for a thief losing his "job".
Jul 2nd 2009 12:01PM I love how the bloggers and journalists did such a poor job in their research and interpretation of what this ban actually meant and the public just ate it all up instead of trying to interpret the law themselves to see if the articles actually made sense.
