The OverAchiever: The worst (maybe) holiday achievements {WoW}

Jan 27th 2012 9:46AM Doing some cheevos sometimes can be sort of fun-ish, but there's absolutely no way I'm pursuing all those just for a purple proto-drake.

I mean, think about it. Reward versus time spent.

When I see someone riding one of those, I'm thinking; "This good fellow probably has OCD".

A day in the life of Bashiok {WoW}

Dec 3rd 2011 5:27AM "high level strategy meetings".

That is just the sexiest bunch of words ever, isn't it?

Screw my career plans, I'm gonna be a game designer. *takes first step*

Breakfast Topic: What starting zone bores you? {WoW}

Oct 29th 2011 9:23AM Really? When I did the goblin starting quests I was totally enthralled, smiling the whole time and thinking, wow, this is maybe the most entertaining solo content ever by Blizzard.

The worgen stuff I didn't like so much. There were still a couple of phasing bugs when I did it, and maybe they were just out of ideas. It kinda fell short, especially right after doing the amazing goblin zones. The quests are a lot more somber in their tone than the goblin ones, I guess it's more difficult to make "serious" fantasy fiction interesting than the crazy and humorous bits.

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria announced {WoW}

Oct 21st 2011 3:38PM Franchises such as WoW can pull off some pretty crazy ideas (or ridiculous, if you prefer), because they are not too 'serious' with their concept to begin with.

Jumping the shark is something separate. Is has more to do with how they execute things, if the creators of the game still have the energy to be true to their vision, if they still have a desire to beat their competition instead of doing 'good enough for who it's for'. I don't think the stuff we've seen today constitutes "jumping the shark".

Patch 4.3: Void Storage prices revealed {WoW}

Oct 5th 2011 11:37PM Here's a thing about Void Storage and transmogging that just boggles the mind. Or mine, at least.

I wanted VS to be wardrobe storage for Transmog! I actually thought that was what it was going to be. What's the point of storing "stuff" in Void Storage if it isn't the gear I want to use with transmogging? What's the point in VS if the Transmogrificationer Space Mummy Man does not co-operate with the other Toilet Paper Electricity Scifi-Ghost Guy stationed 10 feet to his side?

I mean sure, yeah, more bank space for the compulsive crowd, great, why not, but it's not really the point, is it? Transmog and VS are on the PTR because people wanted Transmog. They exist because there needs to be a complete system to support Transmog.

Void Storage removes enchants et cetera. It only stores the ID number of the item. Why can't the transmogrifier let me use my void stored gear as well as stuff in my bags? It seems like such a simple and natural way of doing the feature.

In the transmog screen I could just try on all my gear in my bags or in VS and see how it looks. There's pretty much no reason beyond transmogging to lug around all those old tier pieces in your bags, so unless I ran out of space, I would never, ever take out my cosmetic gear of VS, leaving my bags and bank available for items that have actual gameplay value or emotional value or whatever.

I'm stumped. I don't have a toon on the PTR, so I'm basing all this on what I'm reading. Maybe I'm missing something. Please let me know below if you have something to say about my line of reasoning. Bleeehh it's 6:30 am and I'm sooo going to sleep now, as a matter of fact I may doze off on this very keyboard zzzzzzzzzzz
