WoW Insider interview with Brad Watson, top WoW TCG player {WoW}

Nov 29th 2007 2:48PM No thoughts on MotL? shame.

Are instance drops really random? {WoW}

Aug 20th 2007 6:32PM I can't help but listen to the rationale of the argument stating that bad BoE drops may be Blizzard's way of "pump priming" the economy. Give out drops you can't use and will end up tossing on the AH, making you some cash which will go towards the purchase of that you actually need?

Considering a real simulated reality {WoW}

Aug 15th 2007 3:14PM The idea that we are an imperfect reflection of a perfect world is nothing new, as everyone has pointed out.

The strange piece when it comes to our own virtual worlds is the way in which our avatars take shape as more powerful/perfect than ourselves, which in a philosophical discussion would align WoW closer to the "kingdom of heaven" or "ultimate reality" than to a smaller, and less perfect representtation of ourselves. In a way, we are the imperfect reflections of our perfect characters, which stands to center the universe again on our own world.

Caption This! [Updated] {WoW}

Jul 11th 2007 4:12PM "Vlad the Impetuous learned many life-long lessons during his time amongst the native people of the desert. First and foremost he learned that one should always inquire into the location of sacred deities, for what appears to be a chamberpot may, in fact, be the Eternal and Glorious Palace of Malamuk, Lord of Death."

Azeroth Interrupted: Reader Mail -- WoW for an hour a day {WoW}

Jul 2nd 2007 8:05AM I'm going to have to weigh in with #3 here.

If you're limited (and I don't know the specifics of your day to day schedule) try to find larger blocks once or twice a week. Even if you log on once every seven days and then go for four hours you'll have a more rewarding experience than if you were to constantly pull yourself away day after day.

Face it, this is a game where you're going to get immersed for hours at a time, and that's not a bad thing. As with any RPG half the fun is finding yourself in-character to some degree. If you can grant yourself a day or two a week to get wicked into it it'll make those days off much less stressful on everyone. It's a lot easier to go full throttle once or twice a week than to half-ass it every day. The latter sounds like a disaster plan for anyone who believes themselves "at risk" for getting hooked.

An open letter against a dysphemism {WoW}

I think those of us hovering in the middle of this conversation are having a productive and respectful time of it- we all share more in opinion than we believe.
