Can Blizzard fix all their launch problems in Wrath? {WoW}

Nov 1st 2008 7:55AM I have the advantage of being an Australian player on a North American realm, so my usual playing times are very much off-peak times for the server. Assuming Blizzard doesn't do too many 5am PST shutdowns or restarts (which, knowing my luck, they probably will) then I should see things go pretty smoothly :D

Trackmania DS is not Touchscreenmania {Joystiq Nintendo}

Jul 28th 2008 11:51PM Ahh ok. I definitely remember 8-player games local, just wasn't sure about WFC - the snakers and cheats kinda turned me off online play for MK.

Trackmania DS is not Touchscreenmania {Joystiq Nintendo}

Jul 28th 2008 11:00PM I'm actually glad it doesn't use the stylus. Just because the DS has a touchscreem, doesn't mean it needs to be flogged to death by every game.

However I am dissapointed that they missed out on a massive opportunity with the multiplayer. No online play and only 4 players locally? Come on, from memory even Mario Kart DS supported 8, both online and local!

Gaming to Go: The World Ends with You {Joystiq Nintendo}

Jul 27th 2008 11:24PM I wanted this game to be great, I really did. The visual presentation - both graphics and music - were a real treat for the DS.

It's just a shame it dumps a lot of words on you (for not a lot of plot), and then dumps an ending on you that leaves many things unexplained. And yes, I'm aware you can go back through the game for a few more explanations, but honestly I don't think I'd enjoy TWEWY nearly as much the second time round.

All said though, this is one of very few games that has kept me motivated enough to see it through to the end, and much to SE's credit, the difficulty doesn't ramp through the roof (at least not until the last boss).

DS Daily: How about GTA, then? {Joystiq Nintendo}

Jul 16th 2008 11:54PM I hope so. GTA1 and GTA2 were probably my favourite games in the series. Especially when multiplayer was thrown in!

Rock out with your Guitar Grip out {Joystiq Nintendo}

Jul 9th 2008 2:59AM Nice work DS Fanboy. Not only are flashcart owners automatically pirates, but apparently ROM hackers are now teenagers with strict parents.

What's the next assumption?

Nintendo 'localizes' DS systems for Asia {Joystiq Nintendo}

Jul 7th 2008 6:28PM Yep, apart from the fact it's already out in China, I'm guessing "localized" just means native language. There's nothing different about the iQue other than Chinese language support.

Future R4 firmware to sabotage clones, brick DSes? {Joystiq Nintendo}

Jul 6th 2008 8:26PM "Remember that there's more to Slot-1 flash carts than piracy."

Unfortunately the DS Fanboy bloggers seem to remember that for about five whole seconds, then get lost in the "LOL PIRATES YARR" side of it.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Wrath on the horizon {WoW}

May 17th 2008 3:56AM "...wouldn't know consummate if it hit him in the face..."
"Hey, that happened once!"

Scattered Shots: Hunter problems and predictions {WoW}

May 15th 2008 6:43PM I play a 70 hunter, and I couldn't agree more. Sure, I could think of a dozen things I'd *like* to see improved with the class, but as it is, I can also think of much more broken classes.

One thing about the article irked me a bit though. Especially "Personally I'd like to see hunters get a long casting time heat-seeking missile of some sort in the expansion -- with a knockback effect for kicks -- just for situations where people are hiding behind pillars."

I've played non-hunter classes too, and I'm well aware that hiding behind stuff is pretty much one of the only defenses some classes have against hunters. The hunters just have to work around it - like any other casters, really.
