Nov 11th 2010 5:54PM I love the idea, but at the same time I agree that too many people will now look the same.
Personally I think they just need to go one step further by adding sets that are race specific. They are already adding tabards and cloaks you get with rep with capital cities. Just have an armor set for capital cities as well.
Warriors can get a grunt set from Orgrimmar, or a footman's uniform from Stormwind for example.
At least then we can have more options and still avoid the clown costume.
Jun 17th 2009 1:24PM If a PUG feels the need to only allow people who have the epic achievements then it might be a sign that they are not particularly competent themselves. It's one thing to need competent people, it's another to have ridiculous requirements to prove it. It's not that difficult, you won't need people geared well beyond the instance to do well unless the rest of your group is itself incompetent.
Jun 17th 2009 12:10PM I own both Morrowind and Oblivion, but I never bought the expansions for either game. So, I just finished purchasing the delux edition on Steam. Happy times for me when I get home from work tonight.
Jun 17th 2009 9:25AM Love the changes. However, it will not change the fact that levelling in the old world is insanely boring. Whether you are new to WoW, or levelling an alt, I think most people will agree that old world zones are boring, and feel pointless when compared to what you find in Northrend. A lot of the old zones need to be revamped in much the same way Dustwallow was.
Jun 12th 2009 2:36PM I'm sorry Scott, but if you can walk down the street in real life and ignore, and not say anything to a couple that is obviously homosexual, despite your own objections, then you can do the same in a video game.
This is not just your world, the real, or virtual one. so you have an obligation to accept other people for who they are because you share it with them. If you do not like the idea of openly homosexual NPCs in WoW that is fine, but rejecting the idea outright because you feel uncomfortable with it is selfish.
Jun 12th 2009 1:49PM I'll just preface this comment by saying I am straight.
I really hope Blizzard adds a few openly homosexual NPC's in the game for a variety of reasons: It would be hugely entertaining to watch the bigots and extremelly immature players bitch and moan, and it would show WoW has a more realistic human side to it. The best kind of entertainment is one that successfully goes beyond mindless fun.
Jun 10th 2009 1:14PM The idiocy of your post astounds me. Not looking at a metacritic score makes someone an idiot? You seem to be trapped in a dream world where the only people who are not idiots follow your arbitrary definition of "hardcore."
I'm a PC gamer who upgrades regularly and plays a huge variety of "hardcore" titles. I also use metacritic scores all the time, and I think your post was idiotic.
Jun 9th 2009 9:43AM I can only speak for myself. I am highly unlikely to ever move to the PS3, and no, I will not call it an "upgrade." Switching from one console to another is a switch, not an upgrade. I will use, and upgrade my PC for hardcore gaming, and continue playing a Wii for what I call social gaming, and the occasional masterpiece such as Mario Galaxy and potentially the next Zelda.
I have all my gaming needs filled right now. I see no reason to buy a PS3, even if the price were to drop dramatically.
Jun 3rd 2009 9:58AM Player housing. However, introduce it along with a south seas expansion, and instead of houses, make them player owned ships. Individual players buy galleys, guilds buy battleships and juggernauts.
It's more interesting than regular player housing as you can have have stuff like naval combat involved with it.
I understand the desire to have the ability to start out more characters at higher levels, but I would rather the devs just revamp the 1-40 levelling zones so that they are actually as good as Northrend zones.
May 6th 2009 9:23AM Here is the solution: Introduce another WG style PvP zone. Divide the populations between the two.
