Valve puts fake Half-Life: Episode 3 listing on Steam for April Fools' Day [Update: Nope] {Joystiq}

Apr 1st 2012 8:42PM I can't tell if this is Joystiq trolling us. In any case, the link is fake. It has two p's in the link, making it be "http://store.steamppowered.com/".

ArenaNet confirms Guild Wars 2 beta invites are in progress {Massively}

Mar 17th 2012 12:10PM What is the difference between a "beta weekend event" and this test? I've seen both terms thrown around, but sometimes the "beta weekend" is explicitly stated and sometimes it is not. Is this a longer test?

Steam has that game you didn't buy during the Holiday Sale on sale again {Joystiq}

Jan 1st 2012 7:20PM Gah! I was counting on Sonic Generations, as I was gone the first time.

Star Wars: The Old Republic a big risk for EA, say analysts, everyone else on Earth {Joystiq}

It strikes me as extremely ironic that I read "WoW can't reign supreme forever" in Tirion's voice from the Fall of the Lich King cinematic.

Valve games show up on Origin [update] {Joystiq}

Sep 3rd 2011 11:58AM It appears that these are the retail copies of the Valve games, which EA publishes. If you go to Origin and search for games, some will be marked as downloadable while others will only say "In Stock."

Official Transmogrification preview {WoW}

Aug 17th 2011 12:58PM Tier 6 or 10 for my rogue, but that's not the cool part.

Epic Death Knight starter set!

Raid finder coming in patch 4.3 {WoW}

Aug 17th 2011 11:30AM Woo, my tip was read!

In any case, I can't wait for the patch. All the new features make me convinced that this is when I should return to Azeroth.

The Queue: Transmogrification {WoW}

Aug 17th 2011 11:09AM According to Kotaku, transmogrification has you "combining" two gear sets, for instance Rogue Tier 2 and Rogue Tier 12. Then, the new set should have the look of the Tier 2 but the stats of the Tier 12.

"The biggest tweak coming with patch 4.3 is the Ethereal ability to transmogrify a players armor.
Starting with the patch, players will be able to choose the armor they think looks the best, as well as the armor that is most powerful to combine them into a single set.

"We have a wealth of armor sets we created that people no longer use," said Tom Chilton, lead World of Warcraft game designer.

Worse still, Chilton said, as players start to top out they being to look very similar because many players seem to stick to the high level, epic gear.

The hope is that players will use "transmogrification" not just to mix and max their favorite armor, but that this new ability will encourage some players to go back through the game on the hunt for some of the armor they may have passed up because it was under-powered.

To transmogrify a piece of armor it has to be the same type (cloth, leather, mail, plate) and stay within the class. Players just take it to an Ethereal who has set up shop in town; they transmogrify the two pieces into one."

"Finally, Chilton and Chris Metzen, vice president of creative development at Blizzard, explained a new feature coming with the patch called Raid Finder. The raid finder essentially operates like a dungeon finder, automating the search for fellow players on the hunt for a good raiding party. It will be built into the game's updated user interface when the patch hits, they said."

Battlefield 3 multiplayer trailer is ... ooh, jets! {Joystiq}

Aug 16th 2011 11:54AM @ansalon929
Yes.
"Speaking of vehicles, Bach did confirm that jets will be available in the console version, so virtual pilots can rest easy."
