12 Days of Joyswag: 250GB Xbox 360 with Kinect, Forza Motorsport 4, and Wireless Speed Wheel {Joystiq}

Dec 26th 2011 1:36AM I'm in my car just about every day. Could definitely lessen that amount significantly if I had this to keep me at home.

12 Days of Joyswag: Nintendo 3DS plus eight games (and a ton of Skylanders) {Joystiq}

It's a fun game!

Playing with your keyboard {WoW}

Mar 2nd 2008 9:32PM The placement of WASD for the movement buttons really doesn't work that well. I find it amazing that most people still use those buttons for movement. They really limit the number of action buttons you can map around them - You can only really reach the first four or five buttons, plus a few extra that you can map to buttons like R or F.

I've found that mapping the movement keys to TFGH rather than WASD is much better, since it opens up a lot of extra keys to the left of the movement buttons that can be used for mapping action keys. My action keys wrap around my movement keys, as such:

Default (with WASD):
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 - =

Modified (with TFGH):
Z X D E 4 5 6 7 U J N M

With this system you can make all 12 keys reachable instantly, without having to do any stretching or looking at the keyboard. Also, if you're one of those people who replaces the turning buttons with strafe, then you get an extra two from R and Y.

Get rid of WASD!

My log off spot {WoW}

Feb 17th 2008 4:13AM I log out in Stormwind nearly every time, about halfway between the bank and the auction hall. There's a certain spot right next the giant fountain that I stand on. I even stand facing the same direction (towards the auction hall) each time.

It has become some kind of ritual.

Magister's Terrace videos {WoW}

Feb 12th 2008 6:20PM As far as the "being in two places at once" thing goes, it does make sense when we consider Onyxia and Thrall.

It's still weird to me, though, that two different versions of the same person exist at once. With Onyxia, she's in her human form in Stormwind and she drops that guise in her lair, but it's still supposed to be the same person (or dragon) in both places. Yes, the Stormwind version is chronologically prior, but only slightly. With Kael'thas, though, he's a very powerful 25-man raid boss in one instance, and a regular 5-man boss in another. It becomes hard to believe that he's supposed to be the same person existing in the same time period.

It may be true that the Magister's Terrace version is supposed to be chronologically prior to the Tempest Keep version, but this isn't a simple case of "he was over there before, now he's traveled here" like Onyxia and Thrall. The large difference in his strength indicates that a pretty significant amount of time has passed.

Maybe I'm thinking about this too much, but inconsistencies like this bother me.

Magister's Terrace videos {WoW}

Feb 12th 2008 5:23PM I'm confused. How is Kael'thas the boss of both a 25-man raid and a 5-man instance? He's in two places at once.

Am I missing something here?
