WoW 5th Anniversary Giveaway: Spectral Kitten loot code {WoW}

Nov 23rd 2009 10:05AM How do I post a comment?

Beneath a Steel Sky remastered for iPhone {Joystiq}

Jul 30th 2009 12:01PM Question to readers: I own an iPod Touch and have downloaded Peggle. If I got this and then in a few months bought an iPhone would I be able to download these two games to the iPhone for free via the same account or would I be forced to buy them again for the phone?

Ready Check: Nearly Immortal {WoW}

Mar 26th 2009 10:21AM Happy ending folks, I'm Evan (the one who inspired the post) and I got my Immortal title and Black Proto last night. KT was certainly not without its scares but we pulled it off thanks to cool heads and cooldowns.

Breakfast topic: The best parts of patch 2.4 {WoW}

Mar 26th 2008 10:52AM As a priest, my mp5 used to be something like 450/210 (non-casting/casting) and now it's 734/290. I'd say the spirit/int thing was a good change.

Joystiq interview: Penny Arcade Adventures {Joystiq}

Mar 3rd 2008 3:58PM Picking up on the question related to XBLA and it's more commonly associated genres, I think adding an adventure RPG to the line up would be refreshing. I probably fall into the PA/RPG camp mentioned as a fan of both and I can say that while I enjoy some of the current XBLA content, I certainly long for more engaging titles than the pick up and play fair.

Joystiq interview: Penny Arcade Adventures {Joystiq}

Mar 3rd 2008 3:55PM I would go ahead and trademark the phrase "own my puberty" if I were you. That's pure internet gold if you came up with it yourself. Start a webcomic based on that phrase and the next thing you know game developers will be knocking at your door.

GDC Quest Quiz IV: Erik Wolpaw {Joystiq}

Feb 26th 2008 6:39PM I think I would probably use the perforated parasol to focus the sun's energy into a concentrated beam aimed straight at the bear's dome. pew! pew! I would then open the manila envelope to discover a copy of Hustler and proceed to choke the chicken with a miniature macaroni Tim Schafer statue up my ass.

Steve Aoki hates World of Warcraft {WoW}

Feb 22nd 2008 5:17PM It's cool.. I hate WoW too. Doesn't mean I can stop farming BT/Hyjal every week in prep for the Sunwell. UGH! Any t6 priests (23/38/0) looking for work? DJ's accepted.

Enter to win a $5k Dell WoW Edition notebook {WoW}

Dec 20th 2007 4:00PM For the Horde.

Damion Schubert (sort of) defends the raid mechanic {WoW}

Dec 20th 2007 12:23PM The above comments fail. They can all be chalked up to some form of QQing. The bottom-line is that this is an MMORPG and Blizzard wants you to continue playing it. They've found a good way to do that by offering raids to hardcore players willing to play the game as intended. You, lonely QQer, either aren't committed to seeing endgame or your guild is not committed... it's as simple as that. And if blizzard made it easy for everyone to see it, there would be no incentive and Blizzard would see much more attrition than they already do. You can claim that loot is the incentive and you'd be right to some extent, but the truth is.. most hardcore raiders commit because they want to be in that top 2% or whatever it is.. not just so they can have that glowing sword or those fancy boots.

I have killed Illidan... am I a better priest than you? Maybe or maybe not, but I have committed my time to finding the right guild, I have committed my time to wipe night after night to learn the encounters and I am committed to being as good as I can be. People can complain that they can't find a guild or don't want to, but they are out there.. you can even transfer servers now at will. You are not entitled to see everything there is to see simply because you pay 15 bucks a month, but you are entitled to play the game as it is intended and in doing so you can reach that horizon... or you can move on to another game or be more creative with your time in game. There's so much "solo" content out there it's insane, but from a business perspective Blizzard is doing the right thing. It can't be more obvious when you look at the numbers vs other MMOs out there.

Thanks for playing.
