Oct 21st 2011 5:37PM I'm really surprised about the positive response this news is getting - I sure as hell would have booed had I been there in Anaheim.
With all the things that need fixing in the game (super outdated race models, tedious, un-fun profession grinds, zero reason to visit zones you outleveled, being penalized for wanting to help you lower level friends with quests/dungeons, etc.) AND all the features players begged Blizzard for over the years... For them to go ahead and instead waste dev time on basically the lowest level of compulsion based timesink known to game designers... WoW Is Not Farmville For Pete's Sake!

Apr 28th 2011 6:50PM Mathew, thank you for including Broker Show/Hide Names in your article, as the developer of the little thing I'm totally not worthy to join the illustrious list of developers whose addons made an appearance in your column!

This would be a better version for the mouseover macro, because it just fires off that one spell at the guy you're pointing at, but doesn't switch your actual target.
Apr 14th 2011 9:17AM Daily to-dos. In a video game. What peculiar creatures we are.
I'm not throwing dirt, I do my dailies just like everyone else, but still... it looks kinda weird written down like this doesn't it?
Apr 8th 2011 10:19AM What I'm curious about: How big are the shoulder pads going to be in the movie? Eh..eh..
But seriously, good luck trying to adapt Warcraft's over the top comic book-y art style into live action.
If Blizz wanted to actually further the IP they would've gone with an animated series instead of a cash cow movie. I'm sure Studio Ghibli or Production I.G would've done an amazing job making a series in a format that's actually capable of telling a fresh and interesting story in a fantasy universe.
Apr 4th 2011 3:22PM Thank you for the answers guys, makes sense now. :)
Apr 4th 2011 1:02PM Question:
Why doesn't druid Travel Form (the cheetah) become 'swift' when you reach the appropriate level and/or learn Journeyman Riding? Has this issue ever been considered by Blizzard?
Mar 26th 2011 11:36AM Great finds mate, thanks!

Of course if you're listening to talk radio like this you need to be able to pause/play without alt-tabbing from the game while you're chatting or reading quest text - Winamp and Foobar2k (with the Podcatcher plugin) are great for this because they let you assign global hotkeys. I have the Win+A combo set for pause/play, works great even when WoW is fullscreen.
