Mar 10th 2010 4:14PM I would love to see World of Warcraft reimagined in a Dragon Age setting. I suspended my wow account when Dragon age came out and haven't looked back. No more FPS issues, audio problems, lag, or dealing with a score of unhinged, incompetent, or elitist strangers to experience end-game or simply snag gear to get into finale content.
It would be very easy to incorporate five man action into a single player console -- just look how Dragon Age did it with the four man party. Wow already has the mechanics laid out. Dragon Age even did an ad-hoc raid attempt at the end which I'm sure a Wow console could totally expand on and revolutionize.

Nov 30th 2009 10:15PM A more reasonable chutney...
2 shallots, peeled and minced
1 Tbs olive oil
1 12 oz bag frozen cranberries
2/3 cup raw or turbino sugar, or white sugar
1 Tbs apple cider vinegar ... See More
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh, pickled, or candied ginger, minced
1 Tbs orange juice concentrate, or 2 Tbs orange juice
1/4 cup Sam Adams cherry wheat or cranberry lambic
1/4 cup ginger ale
1/2 tsp Kosher or sea salt
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
First, add oil to saucepan and saute shallots and garlic until soft, about 3 minutes. Stir constantly so garlic doesn't brown.
Pour remaining ingredients in and cook on medium-low heat until you reach desired consistency. Cranberries will pop and sauce will thicken.
Nov 9th 2009 10:13PM A "game" should never equate "work," or becoming a virtual mirror of actual "work," as in having to deal with 1, 2, or numerous abrasive, fun-killing "coworkers."
Personally, this is the key factor in why I don't "raid."
Nov 9th 2009 9:39AM I too was wondering about that.
Back when voice chat went live I was having major video issues and spent a lot of time on the tech support forum. A poster provided a lot of answers and "support" -- he also licked tech support boot heels like no one's business. Last month I was cruising the support forum and lo and behold, he now had green text and a personalized portrait.
Nov 5th 2009 12:59PM "Working hard" and "in a game" should never be used in the same sentence.
My god, who are you people? I can tell you who I hope you are... a fast dying, very tiny minority within the player base.
Keep crying. Your tears are vodka to me! Mwhahahaha.
Nov 4th 2009 4:40PM How exactly is this "jumping the shark?"
And I don't know what's a more ridiculous comment... that offering in-game noncombat pets that you buy with the same money that pays for your subscription fees and expansions is somehow "selling out" or ruining the game in some way. I guess this concept is just too "casual."
As for the other comment, about being against it but then deciding it's okay because it's for "charity..." What if a cut of the money made with all gold farming goes to "charity," would that be okay too? Simply because something goes to this nebulous idea of "charity" suddenly turns the thing into embossed gold?
Having worked with both the American Red Cross and the American Cancer Society for blood drives and 5k runs during college, and having seen peoples' donations squandered on garbage, corporate-controlled "research," marketing, advertising, and fat paychecks for "charity" execs, there is a reason I now only donate my time and money to small, local groups. Who do not advertise.
Yeah, I got me a little K'T, and the thing is wicked sweet. ;) Good job, Blizzard!
It is innovations like this that keep the game from becoming stale.
Oct 28th 2009 10:51PM The writing is more sophisticated? What, are you talking about the dialogue? Like with Zaboo and his "dialogue" with tall FPS hot girl who's never been properly developed or integrated into the actual plot? Or maybe the fact that the show has "evolved" beyond Codex as the center piece where it was her world we were seeing, but now it's just... I don't even know what it is. Well, Wesley Crusher is in it, and he's in it big time, but not in a good way.
Actually, all we need is Ted McGinley to really pull season 3 off. You know what... that may actually reverse the epic shark jump. He could roll in mid season and pull a Steven Seagal and one-shot Wil Wheaton's gang with one of those warcraft credit cards, but with a thin razor in it, Glimmer Man style.
