Apr 2nd 2012 7:06PM Growing up, one of my local radio stations had a "Friday Night 80s" program, and I always tried to call in to request "Safety Dance" (which, considering I now have this song on my iPod, was a laughably complex way to hear a song...).
This video made me grin from ear to ear. Lots of fun to watch, and the Heigan appearance was hilarious. Well done, Off the Air!
Mar 27th 2012 7:21PM I'm glad this video is getting posted. I watched it the other day, and loved it so much I watched it again. If Blizzard doesn't hire Olibith to create a similar video as an ad for MoP, they're crazy.
Mar 22nd 2012 11:01PM There's also the Hanzo Sword and the Assassination Longblade, both one-handed. I think the Hanzo Sword sheaths on the back, not sure about the Longblade...
Mar 21st 2012 10:48AM First thing I'll do in the beta is pick a new area/feature and start looking for bugs. Seeing the content is cool, but finding bugs and submitting reports on them (along with general suggestions when things aren't buggy but aren't running smoothly either) is better.
I was the kid who loved grading papers for teachers during study hall... ;)
Mar 16th 2012 12:11PM Question for The Queue: With resistances going by the wayside in MoP, what do you think Blizzard will do with vanilla-level crafted items that only have resistance stats? Some of those items (Brightcloth Robe from tailoring and the Volcanic set from leatherworking, for example) are great transmog pieces, but I'm worried they'll go the way of the dodo as a result of those stats being removed from gear. I'm hoping Blizz will keep them in the game for transmog's sake, but they're not exactly needed for leveling the professions so I'm worried Blizz will cut them.
Mar 15th 2012 10:22AM Woot! And the day after my SO's birthday, too. I guess we'll have to keep the birthday celebrations going for a second day with Diablo III :)
Mar 7th 2012 11:03AM Holy god, that is the creepiest picture of the Defias I have ever seen. I know the Alliance basically drove them to be outlaws (with the help of Onyxia, of course), but with that sort of frightening menace around wouldn't you want to take them down?
Mar 6th 2012 5:28PM Yeah, it's really likely a friend of mine might be getting this once it becomes available. She came back once to play with us, but we were on different servers and different factions, and leveling from 1-85 seemed really daunting to her when her main never made it to level cap before she quit in BC. After that she let her sub lapse again, and it's been a year since she's played. I'd love for her to be able to come back, join us on our server, and instantly be able to join her in dungeons as she levels.
I understand the frustration for those who have played faithfully since vanilla, or feel like it's a marketing gimmick to staunch subscription bleed, but for some of us it may mean we finally get to play a game we love with friends.
Mar 5th 2012 7:06PM I was a little worried when I saw this was a Florence and the Machine cover since Florence has such a powerful voice, but Brunhila did an awesome job. The video was a really cute tribute to her guild too. Loved it!
Mar 1st 2012 9:14AM I'm not sure it would sell me (watching my SO play his gnome mage did that for me, and I'm Alliance through and through), but it does make me want to play a Forsaken for some reason. And I *hate* the Forsaken...
