May 19th 2010 7:26AM Thank you!! I completely agree. It's bad enough that I am told at least 2-3 times a day to reroll fury to get my DPS higher (thankfull my guildies don't give a damn), but the fact that I can't even interrupt?!
I am so damned sick of Arms getting nerfed because PVP. As if being able to be disarmed during Bladestorm wasn't already bad enough. Okay, so MS is getting plucked and tweaked. Fine. But increase our base DPS. Something, anything. I am so sick of Fury warriors who don't even know what their actual rotation is being able to out DPS me on easycakes mode when I bust my proverbial arse to eek out every bit of DPS I can.
I have said for years that I think we should have separate, more reigned in talent trees for PVP. But then again again, I'm also one of those crazies who thinks Arena's ruined PVP. So *shrugs*
May 18th 2010 11:53PM Okay, I have to say I'm sort of appalled that the description of this song and it's victim list were so badly butchered. Speaking as an aspiring journalist, I'm pretty sure you're supposed to at least listen to the songs you're writing about a few times before butchering a piece of an article this badly.
As many other people said, it's the narrator's brother and his wife that are killed, Seth was just the guy his wife was cheating with.
Mar 5th 2010 3:35AM Ha. YES! I still tear up when the credits start going on OoT, so I can't even imagine what that must feel like with the added frustration of not even being able to see what you're wailing on.
These guys are amazing.
Mar 5th 2010 3:27AM I can not even imagine how difficult this must have been for the
creators of the guide, or for Jordan to actually do.
Speaking as a die-hard OoT fan who has spent *way* too much of her
life playing it, I can appreciate how desperately Jordan must have
wanted to play the game. I can only imagine how craptastic it must be
to want to play games so badly and be visually impaired.
I think it's beautiful what these guys did for him. I know a lot of
people who would argue it's a waste of time, that it's just one video
game and why should it matter....why dedicate their time to this...
But I think dedicating their time to something that is, in the grand
scheme of things, so small to others, but so huge to this one person,
is a great, great sign for humanity and where we're headed.
The gamers shall inherit the earth :)
Apr 18th 2009 6:08PM Um has anyone else thought that maybe people have been saving up their money during this month to get a DSi? I mean, the DSi released RIGHT after the end of March, so with this economy, it would make sense that people would be holding back on buying other things like a Wii, Wii accessories, etc. in exchange for getting a DSi. I'm betting that the Wii will bounce right back in a couple of months.
Apr 14th 2009 12:49PM I'm partial to my Nintendo messenger bag that I got a few years back. It's black, has the Nintendo logo on a sliding shoulderpad on the strap, has little zipper pulls with the Nintendo logo, and a rubber NES controller sewn onto the front flap for a subtle, yet awesome gamer-girl touch.
I think the best part is it is really cool, for guys or girls. Any time I've been in public with it, I get a lot of compliments on it, and frankly I think it looks a lot cooler than the above purse. I mean, if you're going to do the NES controller at least make the pieces symmetrical and look real :(
Not to mention....that bag doesn't look very sturdy. I've had mine for going on three years now, and you'd never know it was over a few days old.
Oh, and I only paid 20 bucks for it, with shipping =P
Dec 23rd 2008 9:11AM It's kind of sad but I didn't even know about the ad's until I read WoWInsider.
I always run ABP, and I refuse to step foot in General Chat most of the time, so I never noticed or heard about it.
Silly me >.
Dec 23rd 2008 9:09AM I actually read mandy's articles more than anybody else's in this place.
I like reading about another gamer's experience, I like reading about her opinion, and I like that WoWInsider doesn't just cater to people like you or the other bunch of jerks who are bashing mandy simply for posting because "*beats chest* It's a WoW Blog. Must only have stats, gear, and phat epics. "
For the love of God, if you don't like her articles, don't read them.
Dec 23rd 2008 9:07AM Wow. I found this post insightful and completely full of win. Maybe it's because I've always tried to do unto others in WoW and have always held the ideal that no matter what MMO you're playing, those are real people behind the screen and they deserve respect.
Regardless, I thought the post was well thought out and perfectly relevant.
Too bad so many asshats came out in droves in the comments to be obnoxious and rude. Heaven forbid someone have an opinion about WoW and post it in a freakin' WoW BLOG! *GASP*
*sigh* I really miss EverQuest. People came first there back in the day, not the pixels or the lewts.
Dec 23rd 2008 8:42AM And I have to ask....who the hell felt the need to defend Bento?
Only one person was being rude about it and nobody really got up in arms about it, most people laughed it off.
Not to mention, where the hell do anime and cat girls come into any of this? Seriously?
WHAT are you smoking? Or are you just THAT paranoid that you're running around going "OMFG THE ANIME FANS IS GOINGS TO COMES OUTS IN FORCE BECAUSE OF TEH BENTO! OH NOES!"
