Dec 12th 2011 5:54PM Uldum was a travesty and such a missed opportunity. Blizzard's love for goofy, more-than-borderline plagiarist reference took precedence over serious, franchise-building world lore... as it has in so many zones in Cataclysm.
Much as I respect Dave Kossack, and much his Flintlocke series made me laugh myself to tears, I have come to think that having Mr. "I lewt teh hat" as the lead quest designer for the game was a bit of a mistake.
Nov 3rd 2011 11:09AM Theramore's been far from a peaceful state this expansion. Unless Jaina completely lost control of her military at Northwatch, she's already given up on the peace that her father's death bought her.
Oct 29th 2011 9:12AM The Valley of Trials is unrelentingly bland.
Oct 23rd 2011 5:58PM I really wish they'd write Anduin with a bit more grit. I've tried to like the kid, I really have... but damn me if he isn't the blandest, most naive character I've ever met. His "I think love outlasts everything" attitude just makes me feel like I'm five years old again, coming home from school at 12:30 to watch cartoons that teach me about sharing and being polite. I really hope that he grows up and gets his illusions shattered and becomes a proper, believable royal.
Oct 23rd 2011 2:19PM Balls, I typed while instead of will. The shame burns. Downvote into the abyss please.
Oct 23rd 2011 2:14PM This while save me having to count all the way up to six on my fingers. Ah, the wonders of technology.
Oct 22nd 2011 1:59PM If the Avatar animation is anything like what it was in WC3, I can't wait to pick it up on a tauren.
Oct 17th 2011 4:49AM Rexxar would be an inoptimal choice. He's even less of political animal than Garrosh is. Rexxar as Warchief would be the equivalent of Bear Grylls as the Prime Minister of the UK.
Oct 14th 2011 11:36AM I'm not a blood elf detractor in the slightest, though admittedly I don't play them for aesthetic reasons. But for my part it isn't anything to do with homophobia and entirely with them being too gosh darn anime for my aesthetic sense.
