Mists of Pandaria Beta: Male pandaren facial hair gallery {WoW}

Mar 29th 2012 4:17PM They look pixelated to me, I hope they look better in game.

23 images of the female pandaren customization {WoW}

Mar 22nd 2012 1:28PM They all have the same smile?! You need more character! The nose and eyes appear to be the same, as well, I hope all those things will be fixed. I love cute and cuddly, I even collect teddy bears irl--but you need variety to make your toon your own, something that shows personality. As for the people complaining about the figure, huh? Do you expect a panda to be skinny? If anything they're too human, but the Mae West figure does look pretty nice on the panda gals. And I like the markings.

Finally, a leveling guild worth calling home {WoW}

Mar 16th 2012 1:23PM dean sanass, I don't know why your comment was downgraded. People are making big guilds just for the perks, and not helping members, just as it says in the article-TLA is being praised as a noteworthy exception, not the norm. Cata's new guild system killed small, helpful, friendly guilds. It's great that TLA has managed to do that in a big guild, but it takes really dedicated people with time to take on that much work, running a huge guild and making sure people still get help. Before Cata, people who didn't have that much time were still able to run small, helpful leveling guilds. But today to level you want the guild perks, like faster leveling of course, so that forces you to be in a big guild and that can lead to unnecessary drama or neglect. Blizzard added some tools like the dungeon finder and raid finder, which can help a small guild be able to make up for a member who wasn't able to make it-but they killed small guilds at the same time, by giving huge perks to huge guilds. It really makes no sense. Blizzard took away our ability to socialize and work together the way we, the players, want to. I don't want to be told I have to run with the popular crowd. I'd love to see some kind of compromise in MoP, some kind of balance for players if you want to be in a small guild (or even no guild). But, sadly, I'm not expecting it, if anything they'll probably make even more perks for even bigger guilds. :0(

Blizzard is up to something: 'Soon we'll fly together again ...' {WoW}

Mar 6th 2012 12:57PM Who are you kidding? It will just be another mount money grab in the Blizzard store, this time your Alliance characters get a slightly different mount than your Horde characters. XD

5 not-so-simple ways Blizzard can fix the World of Warcraft Auction House {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 6:13PM This is a multiplayer game, it doesn't work well without multiple players. Low population servers have no economy because they have no community, they need both. Don't make economic changes in the whole game that make no sense for medium and high population servers. Some people prefer to sell only to their own faction because of the sense of community, and there's no reason to sell gold. Just address the empty servers, combine them.

Possibilities for the Pandaren mount {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 3:13PM I just hope it is a mount, and not the panda rolling along the ground or something like that, lol. I thought Blizzard learned the lesson when they realized shamans and druids needed mounts, then they go and do the worgen running thing, come on.

Scattered Shots: What to do in-game when there's nothing left to do {WoW}

Feb 16th 2012 12:37PM I don't see how people can be bored. I started shortly after BC hit and I'll never run out of things to do. I'd like to get all 16 of my toons to top level, all professions leveled for all of them, get them each a title, ground mount, and flying mount that's good for their character. Plus special projects-I have a mount collector, 2 vanity pet collectors, pets the hunters want to tame, etc. I can't spend as much time on WoW as I'd like. I got only 2 of my toons to 80 before Cata, and I'll be lucky if I get 5 to 85 before Pandaren. And then I'm back to 0/16 and have to relearn how to play every class again because they keep changing everything. If the panda gals are cute I'll want one of those, too, perhaps even one of each faction.

I write about dragons on the internet, Dad {WoW}

Feb 14th 2012 12:33PM A bit of useless trivia: If John Carter of Mars had come out when Disney first planned to make it, it would have been the first full length animated feature instead of Snow White. Would the world be a different place if it was?! It's coming out next month and I hope it doesn't suck.

The WoW economy code of ethics {WoW}

Jan 30th 2012 11:48PM I'd never buy gold. Making gold isn't that difficult, and if there's something I really can't afford, I don't need it. But not being able to buy off the AH, that would make WoW just impossible and no fun at all. If I try to do a background check on a player--before buying those stacks of leather I've been hoping will show up on the AH for days--they will be long gone.

But I want to know, how did this industry wide idea start that the more time a player spends in a game, the better? Time sinks are not content. It hurts the industry, a lot of people don't play games at all because they take up too much time. People who do buy games, could buy more games if each one didn't take so long. I'm not talking about time to find the right strategy to take out the bad guy, or even to get a rare drop, I'm talking about time doing boring, repetitive stuff on a daily basis just to get normal, necessary items to play. I don't have all day to farm mats, but maybe if I didn't need to, there wouldn't be much market for virtual items. Why do I have to wait for a little bar to fill to finish crafting a virtual item? Why do I have to wind my way up a ridiculous staircase, to get to the top of a tower, just to talk to a guy? Why not more portals? The gaming industry needs to do a major rethink on what people want. Make the game fun, and don't waste time with all the unfun stuff. I'm not saying people shouldn't work for anything in the game, but there is working for a goal, and then there are blatant time sinks. If you're paying people to play a game for you, there's something wrong with the game.

Now let's put that aside for a moment, and talk about something far more important, slavery. This article asks if you could be 100% ethical playing WoW, but what about that cup of coffee you drink as you play? The computer you're playing on? The shirt you're wearing? Where did those things come from? We'd like to think slavery is a thing of the past. The truth is there are more slaves in the world now than ever. Greed and power have gone mad, and I don't know how to stop it. We can try. We can work for more accountability in the companies we buy from, and in our government. Does it help to pass up items on the AH? I really don't know. If you want information on your slavery footprint, you can visit http://slaveryfootprint.org/
