May 4th 2010 7:38PM Strange. I'm having no trouble with the quests on new alts. Are you talking to the matron and hitting the dialog option?
Apr 15th 2010 10:13PM Here is my 1 in 4037 (and climbing) chance! whee!
Apr 9th 2010 11:01AM Bet there will be a pet of the big units for the protoss and the zerg when the CE versions of their campaigns come out.
Apr 9th 2010 10:59AM "It's not like games were cheap to make back then. Games from 10 years ago may look simple now, but they were tough and expensive to produce then too. Technology moves on, I'm sure it was the same effort to make a game 10 years ago as it is now."
Ok, I honestly don't know where you got this idea, but no. The more advanced textures, the 3d animation and modeling for one unit in sc2 takes more man hours then any 5 units in the first game.
I'm always amazed by people who believe new games are as easy to make as the games were in the 90s.
Yes there are shiny new development tools but if you seriously believe animating all the bits on a terran marine is as easy as drawing 100 sprites then I have a beachfront property in montana I'd like you to buy.
Mar 22nd 2010 8:28PM Its not even a measure of how many elves of draenei there are in the game when you consider how many 80s there are. The there shear number of super powerful characters in existence, it is a wonder how Azeroth has any trouble at at all with any threat.
But you are supposed to suspend your belief there. Just like you do when you come back to like, or mobs respawn the ether, and the orc 10 feet away doesn't notice you slaughtering his comrade.
It would suck to play a lot if any of the above things where changed.
Mar 22nd 2010 8:16PM Bad worldbuilding? Sure, there are retcons... but aside from that how is the universe of WOW an example of bad worldbuilding?
Or are you going to hang your hat one the existence of retcons and a few things your personally dislike?
Maybe, just maybe is you explained your position a little instead of just spewing words like 'bad worldbulding' you would not be down rated so quickly.
Feb 26th 2010 10:13PM First you start our complaining about there being no new info...
But the second half of your post is just chalk full of response to the new info we were given.
I get that you are an unhappy camper about WoW and everything, but at least be consistent with what you want to complain about.
Feb 26th 2010 10:09PM You are a little too hopeful there. He said that he wants people to be able to play the events for a couple of months before cataclysm releases.
The events are items dug out of the PTR patch, but remember, many times things in the patch are just being placed there as groundwork for future releases, not that they are going to come out specifically for that patch.
Remember the halloween masks? Goblin and worgen masks in the patch at the time, but still not live.
Just because there is quest info in the 3.3.3 PTR build does not mean those quest will be in 3.3.3, it just means they are closer to release.
Feb 19th 2010 4:59PM Not at all. Though I will admit the ending was weak. But the game had me entralled until the end.
I've only made it to the end of 3 of the FF games. Can never get motivated to do the final bit of grinding to kill the last boss on a lot of them. For alot of them the story just wasn;t interesting enough for the extra hours.
