Nov 11th 2010 6:27PM This article is 100% grade A crap. I thought this article might be useful, then I realized it's on wow.joystiq.com. Silly me.
Oct 27th 2010 11:17AM As someone who has this, anyone who hasn't finished it yet is not going to get it done by Cata unless they are very close (i.e. 1 faction remaining). Most of these factions are 3-6 week affairs. I thought I would save the Darkmoon Faire for last, since it would be "easiest", but it ended up taking the most time out of all of them (6 weeks total and ~50,000 gold).
For people thinking you can just get Booty Bay/Elves knocked out note that the entire feat is being removed in Cata. Meaning, even if you grind the rest of the reps to exalted you still cannot obtain Insane once Cata hits.
For those of you super close to finishing, best to get a move on.
Oct 20th 2010 12:02PM @Asaoirc. What in the hell are you talking about? FPS != latency. There is no correlation there what-so-ever.
His poor frame-rate is due to his sub-par system specs. Increasing his bandwidth will do nothing. His only option is to pony up for a better video card or a completely updated system.
Jun 3rd 2010 3:18PM Did you actually watch the Quick Look? It doesn't sound like you did, or else you'd probably know it's called a Quick Look. They also weren't reviewing it, they were simply playing it to show people what it's like, hence the name Quick Look and not Quick Review.
We could get into an argument about whether critic opinion is worth more than a user's and what a critic's opinion is truly worth. Or perhaps whether the user is biased because they purchased said game, etc. etc. but I won't be back to this thread to read it. I don't have the time and I really don't care about anything other than posting my own posts and having the last say.
I hope, truly, that you at least find my honesty refreshing. Best regards.

Giantbomb gave this game a scathing Quicklook which essentially outlined how terrible this game was to them. I suppose there's always standard deviation in opinion, but it's surprising to see two people recommending this game so adamantly.
May 14th 2010 5:26PM Calm down Grim. They've burned enough bridges where they can't get any more new subs, so enjoy the game while it flops around on its death bed while you waste your time defending its honor in threads such as these.
No one cares, and no one is resubscribing to this waste of a game. Just thought you'd like to know.
May 7th 2010 12:32PM And they say attractive women don't play WoW. Oh wait, they don't (see pic).
Mar 12th 2010 6:04PM Josh- what, pray-tell, is the purpose of your apologizing on Erica's behalf? She's a grown woman, and as such can defend herself. She has some problems in this article, just as anyone does who writes, which she could correct if she wishes. People are only pointing those out. No need to be defending her.
And stop referring to your previous posts for "further information". Are you new to the internet? If you can't bother to type out your response to the commenter then don't bother. Cites and references don't work when it comes to commenting.

Are you for real, Michael? I know you have a quota of blog posts to make but "OMG LOOK AT MY PUPPY" isn't exactly worthy of one. Not that this is the worst article on WoW.com. Not by a mile. The amount of trash written on this site is only rivaled by a industrial sized dumpster.
I'm threw wow.com. We had a good run, but you never, ever entertain me anymore with your irrelevant content and never educate me when it is relevant. I think I'll just stop visiting this site altogether. Rarely is something ever worth reading, much less commenting on when it comes to this blog. I'm sure there's some competitor out there that doesn't devote 75% of their posts to cookies shaped like WoW characters, crappy made WoW themed crafts, or things in the WoW meta-verse but never specifically WoW.
Enjoy your page views for dribble such as this. I won't be a part of it any more.
Mar 11th 2010 1:53PM @micahs_pi - what, exactly, is your point?
The problem many PC gamers point to is that Macs don't have sufficient graphics cards to run many modern PC games. I think we have a conundrum here, though, as many people are not upgrading their PCs as primary gaming rigs as there used to be (me included). With the 360 and PS3 practically providing PC experiences for the majority these days, gaming on traditional computers is being taken out of the spot light. It's a sad state of affairs but it is what it is.
Anyone decrying it's stupid for Valve -or anyone else - to pursue Mac is missing the point: PC gaming's audience is DECLINING. They have to bring in new consumers in some fashion, and the easiest way to get that is to open up the floodgates to an entirely new platform. Why any PC gamer in the world thinks this is a dumb move lacks any kind of business sense or self preservation. This helps EVERYONE: pc gamers, developers and mac gamers all get the benefit of additional dollars flowing into the business. It makes an easier business case for companies to create pc/mac versions of their console ports because the audience now grows, and, ergo, gives everyone more games.
Yes, this audience may not be interested in playing Mac games, but how does anyone know that? Obviously Valve doesn't else it wouldn't be pursuing it. There has never been such a movement of sales behind Apple and it's the best time right now to try to breach this market before someone else does and takes that business away.
