Aug 29th 2009 5:31PM This was the first time I got to watch a Blizzcon via DirecTV as I am in Australia and can not afford the costs to travel to the US.
The highlights for me were the technical panels as they explained in surprising detail some of the aspects the developers had to grapple with when designing each game.
I had a lot of problems with the DirecTV feed with constant buffering and most of Day 1 and the first half of Day 2 I had to switch to a free HD feed via justin.tv. Hopefully the DirecTV guys can improve the streaming for next years Blizzcon. Multiple feeds would be nice as I really wanted to see The Guild panel discusion.
The DirecTV presenters were good (Geoff Keighley & Kat Hunter). The roving floor reporter was forgettable and instead of hiring a booth babe they should have brought someone in with some game knowledge and interview skills.
L80ETC was great. Ozzie was his usual self. I have never enjoyed his music anyway and it was at that point I shut down the live stream.
Funniest highlight of the show for me was watching the people asking panel questions. I will never forget the guy with the Intel badge plastered to his face, or the "Big Hair" guy that lined up and asked a question at every single panel. It made me realise there are some truly scary people out there in the nerd world. ;)

Mar 7th 2009 12:12AM Love WoW but I am also playing:

Jan 23rd 2009 11:19PM A number of us experience lag every night now in Naxx-25. It has gotten to the point where I know I will DC during certain boss fights in Naxx. Four Horsemen being a prime example.
Pre-patch I didn't DC anywhere near as much as I am now. We play during offpeak on a US server so it can't be caused by server population issues.

If I had a dollar for every time this type of tired comment was trotted out when a celeb is "outted" for playing WoW I'd be a very rich man.
Dec 28th 2008 8:46AM I've been concentrating on the Sons of Hodir for the shoulder enchant. I also enjoy doing the Ebon Blade quests. I am also doing the 3 Wyrmrest Accord dailies for the mount.
Oct 5th 2008 6:17PM I solved my issues with broken WoW PvP. I simply don't participate.
Jul 1st 2008 6:46AM I love Age Of Conan.
I just wish I did not have to
because of the OUT OF MEMORY errors. >
May 18th 2008 1:35AM No one is any more or less entitled to the content in WoW. We all pay the same amount of money to Blizzard and within the constraints of the game system are equally entitled to experience all of the content in the game.
Too many people in the game are far too focused on the end result rather than the journey getting there. Hence we have rampant guild hopping and people basically being ratbags to their fellow guildmates in the rush to get to the endgame.
To those that complain about having nothing to do because you have been farming T6 for the last four months suck it up. The rest of us don't care and aren't listening. There are lot's of other MMO's out there to keep you addicted.
