Poll: Which is your favorite in-game cinematic? {WoW}

Dec 16th 2011 6:21AM I voted for Wrathgate.
However, I love Arthas' last words: "I see only darkness before me".
A true, final, endless death for the King of the undead. No surprise comebacks in the future. Fin.

Breakfast Topic: What do you listen to while playing? {WoW}

Dec 13th 2011 1:22PM Wow music most of the time.
Buuuuut... when I PVP on my rogue, I want to get funked up... so make my funk the P-Funk!
When I tank a dungeon on my overgeared warrior, I listen to: http://www.last.fm/music/Mastodon/_/Blood%2520and%2520Thunder?ac=blood%20and%20th

Breakfast Topic: How do you adapt WoW for younger players? {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2011 9:54AM Seconding this. A computer game that never ends full of pottymouthed strangers?
No way!

Breakfast Topic: What outside things do you associate with WoW? {WoW}

Nov 21st 2011 4:26PM I'm currently stuck deep in my PhD work and somehow I find myself making warcraft orc peon sounds a lot. If you sneak up to my office and observe my reaction to a new mail from my boss, you'll hear "Work, work!". I can't help it.

The funny thing is, a former colleague of mine did the same thing. I asked him whether he could program his software in a certain way and he responded: "I can do that!" in a classic peon voice. He's not the Gamer type so I did not expect that... naturally I peed myself laughing.

GuildOx shares the most popular WoW character names by class {WoW}

Nov 3rd 2011 4:06AM I'm quite fond of my choice of names.
1. My main is a rogue, my name is robert, he is called Roguebert... I play on a german server so people call me Rougebert, Roachbert or Roughbert. Hard name, I guess. I think about changing my name to Sting.
2. My male warrior dwarf is called Starkbehaart (stark behaart, very hairy (rough translation)). It has a nice flow when spoken.
3. My Paladin is called Protagonist
4. My Priest is called Monsignore
5. My lowbie female human warrior is called Aristeia.

Breakfast Topic: "Blizzard's Horde bias" -- fact or delusion? {WoW}

Oct 26th 2011 8:43AM At Blizzcon, Chris Metzen confirmed that the Alliance racial lead characters have been left behind a bit. This may be due to the fact that he has invested so much in Thrall as a character.
But he also promised that Mr. Wrynn and Ms. Proudmore will get their day in the sun. If I recall correctly, Mr. Wrynn, a one-dimensional character with personality issues will work hard to be acknowledged by every Alliance faction as a the true leader of the Alliance. Every faction will give him one kind of herculean labour to prove himself to them. In the course of these labors, he'll stop being a cranky child and brooding and probably get a decent crew cut.

Breakfast Topic: Do you read the WoW novels? {WoW}

Oct 25th 2011 10:08AM Same thing here. I did not study literature (science ftw!) but I've been devouring books at an average rate of one every two weeks for years now... maybe a bit more.
I started reading before school and I inherited my uncle's SciFi & Fantasy collection when he went to university. I read formulaic trash (Perry Rhodan !!) alongside classics (Tolkien, Bradbury) high-quality innovative stuff (Zelazny, Lem, Dan Simmons, Gene Wolfe). I loved it all. But now I just want the good stuff.
I read while walking around the city, walking to work, riding the bus. Still, I feel overwhelmed by the number of novels that I still have to read (top genres: Hard Boiled Crime, Fantasy, SciFi, mixed Non-fiction). If a book has won the rights awards or comes recommended by sources I trust, I'll buy it and add it to the pile. Everything else I ignore. It's not that I'm an elitist, but reading time is precious and limited... you just have to select.

Buuuuuuut: Audiobooks are a different matter, as they don't eat away at my precious reading time. I can listen to them while I do sports or cook or clean the flat... perfect for books that won't be insulted by being processed by just half a brain ;-).
That's how I managed get through Harry Potter... I might give the Warcraft novels a shot.
