Jan 3rd 2011 7:40AM I'm not at all fond of the idea of live actors. With the technology and method created by Cameron's Avatar, I'm sure they could produce something like the cinematics we get, but without the long timespan. They could use live actors but still have it smooth CGI and incorperate all the bodyparts and magics that you can't really do with makeup, prosthetics and GCI sparkles.
Jan 2nd 2011 7:37AM Sorry if this has been asked before, but is it even possible to purchase old world flying on a cata free trial, then when the trial is up still use flying in Azeroth when only using up to wotlk? Someone claimed to me that they did this but I don't think it could be possible...
Dec 30th 2010 6:46AM I remember my first dungeon run ever. I 'stood in the fire', died and without thinking, went to graveyard and rezzed, with sickness. I offered to leave since it appeared I was hopeless and I was honestly very embarassed, but I found everyone was nice, they said they'd wait the 10 min out. Some were annoyed but they were not rude, they showed me the best place to stand and even talked me through what attacks were best to use.
I've found that level of helpfullness declines as you go up in level (at least in PUGs, in my guild they're helpful regardless of level), and players get better and expect everyone else to be at their level of knowledge, but luckily I have a good guild that answers my questions if someone in a PUG is angry at me for not knowing something.
Nov 30th 2010 10:49AM I bought the sparkle pony. Its fun, pretty, but not something that I should have included in the spending spree I did that night. It helps slightly with my mount count but I do sorta regret HOW MUCH I spent on it.
I'll still use it tho. I the last thing I want to do is feel I spent a lot of money on something that I now will not even use. Sparkle Pony will still pop out.
That said, I have learned my lesson. If I'm not happy buying a mount, I know I will feel I wasted money on a vanity pet.
Nothing against people who do of course, I just think its not something I would spend money on again, but I am glad I at least 'tried' it on something useful like a mount. People who do buy all this are supporting Blizzard which is fine, I'm not going to make fun of them, esp since I've been made fun of for purchasing something myself.
I shall enjoy sparkle pony but no, I won't be buying any vanity pets, and very likely won't buy another mount if it comes out.
Nov 16th 2010 5:29AM I've had 'free time' before and I got the email.
Nov 14th 2010 3:10PM I was intending to wait till after xmas before playing wow, but all the pre-release things going on, plus an offer of 7 days free...I'm getting tempted :(
Oct 28th 2010 7:48AM Mitawa, Draenei are NICKNAMED 'goat people'. They are not actually part goat like Tauren are part cow. Just because people call them 'space goats' does not mean they are literally part goat.
Oct 26th 2010 12:46PM Oh dear lord I just showed this to a friend revising for our Religious Philosophy class and we had a long conversation/debate about if the statement "The critters have guns and are shooting other critters" is meaningful and scientific according to verificationism and falsification.
And people say studying isn't fun.
Oct 25th 2010 6:08PM Probably wasn't as awful as some might expect, hence the comment. I had my leg broken as part of a procedure to fix the way my foot face and I was in a cast for a good 8 months, I couldn't walk without aid for a year. I guess it depends on where the breakage is, but I won't deny a ligament injury is awful, my cousin snapped a ligament in his hand, was NOT fun. I assume the general idea in people is that broken bones are worse than ligaments, even if its not true.
glad to hear he is taking it in good spirits. I don't understand people who feel the need to call him nasty names over this, its not like it was deliberate, and how hard is it to just think 'hope he gets better soon'?
Oct 24th 2010 8:54AM One of the few who liked Sindra's roar,
and I absolutely love Deathwing's. Its not as loud and is quite fitting.
I can understand people throwing fits because they hated the roar so much but I personally am rather happy :3
