Breakfast Topic: How would you redesign the old character models? {WoW}

Mar 31st 2012 12:06AM I'm not difficult to please. Better faces and more variety than Aion. Complete control over physical dimensions and age. Better looking gear than any game out there. Different, fluid animation for each attack spell or physical attack. Better horse riding animation than Rift. Oh, yeah, better horse designs. Easy, eh?

We need to manage our expectations about Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Feb 24th 2012 2:33PM I don't know about MOP. I'll let it impress or disappoint me. What I'm tired of is the hype. "I'm so excited about MOP!" Why? It's not out yet, you don't know how the game play will be. Why are the writers always so EXCITED? Frankly, it sounds forced, fake. Makes me wonder how secure Blizz and joystiq's writers are about the future. The game is aging, the competition is increasing, and the subscriptions are lowering. MOP could be make or break time for Blizz's cash cow. Heck, I'm more interested in how subscriptions will increase or decrease six months after MOP's release than MOP itself.

As for what I expect out of MOP, if the character designs, not just the number of bones, aren't significantly improved, I expect to not buy it.

Going toe-to-toe with TERA's first beta weekend {Massively}

Feb 23rd 2012 2:50PM @(Unverified) Lol. I remember the first anime expo where the local newspaper called anime Japan's latest export - child porn. Anime is live and well in America today. Tera will survive the barbs of American prudism as well, I'm pretty sure.

Profanity filters, homophobic slurs, and Blizzard's shaky relationship with the LGBT community {WoW}

Jan 26th 2012 2:31PM Kiki, Laputa. Should these words be banned as well? Afterall, both are not nice words in some language. They are also names of wholesome children's animated movies. I don't agree with banning words. Instead Blizz needs to ban behaviors, including gay ones. I wa in a pug just two days ago where the healer announced that he was chatting with boys on Adam4adam, a gay site. Why do I need to know this? He's chatting with boys. Is he a ped? I ended up dropping the pug because I don't play to discuss politic, religion or sexual behaviors.

Transmogrification and the dismissal of the silhouette theory {WoW}

Aug 17th 2011 2:52PM Transmitting only has significance if you have something nice to change into. I play wow and other games. Comparatively speaking wow is severely lacking in style of gear. Hopefully this means they are contemplating hiring gear designers who actually have some artistic talent. Else, it's a wasted effort. Is there any hint of upgrading graphics to current state of the art?

Breakfast Topic: Why did you start playing WoW? {WoW}

Jul 2nd 2011 2:37PM Dragon Age got me into the genre, which got me into WOW, which got me into Rift and Aion, and possibly Tera later. It's an addiction. Should be banned.

Breakfast Topic: Male or female? {WoW}

Jul 2nd 2011 4:38AM I didn't watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer because of Zander and I didn't watch Dark Angel because of anything other than Jessica Alba. WOW might be a game, but to me it still is a video, just one I have some control over, and the same concept applies. Not that the WOW female characters are that great to look at compared to newer games, but still, better than an all male cast.

Breakfast Topic: Are pretty pixels important to you? {WoW}

Jun 14th 2011 9:39PM I loved WOW graphics, until I started playing another game. Now I love riding my horse, seeing my toon's arms pumping, her diminitive body leaning forward and to the side to see past the horses head, her butt moving in the saddle, her arms and legs flying when the horse jumps. I love the way my mage uses her staff, twirling it around, thrusting it at her foe with all her strength, her weight shifting from her back foot to her forward foot as she puts every once of her 90 pounds into it. I love her outfits that reveal slim females legs that in no way look like they belong to a linebacker, that reveal her delicate shoulder blades and shoulders. Did I forget to mention her beautiful face?

Now, I love WOW, have played it for 18 months and still play it. I have 6 lvl 85 toons, 3 with 9000 plus gearscores, all maxed out on crafting. But, I'm dying for the above to apply to my WOW toons. After playing a state of the art graphics game, WOW shows its age. It's OLD. What gives, Blizz? Can't upgrade? Or unwilling to upgrade?

Trion Worlds takes players on a tour of RIFT's upcoming Hammerknell raid {Massively}

Jun 14th 2011 9:23PM @(Unverified)

I just checked Rift and WOW, 30 versus 49 players online. Neither seems very active to me. Given WOW's 11.4 million players to Rift's less than 1 mil, I'd expect an even greater disparity. Perhaps you should spend more time wondering where all the WOW folks are than commenting on Rift.

Actually, Trion states they are approaching 1 million.
