The Queue: It's just a game {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2009 4:20PM Good Question. Stupid humans and stupid Kirin'Tor can bubble an entire city for years, then float the thing across the world. With no known power source.

My guess... Rhonin's penis. That's where all the human powers come from.

Dec 1st 2009 11:52AM You just 'sploded the brains of 10 out of the 11 million wow players.

I roll my eyes.. I don't even try to explain anymore.. when people work under the notion that farming mats makes them free.

Dec 1st 2009 10:55AM There's a known issue with spells not updating on dual-spec player bars. This addon would be a perfect reminder to update your bars :P

Tuesday Morning Post: Stuffed edition {WoW}

Dec 1st 2009 10:33AM So Daniel, what part of the achievement did you get hung up on?

I saw most vitriol flung towards the Turkinator achievement. Other than that, pining for the elusive dwarf/orc rogue was heard.

I think most people's problems with Turkinator were in their approach. Racing through a zone as fast as they could, killing turkeys at max range, etc etc. During peak hours, no less.

My latest level 80, a priest, was able to get Turkinator on the first attempt, and held the buff throughout the entire farming session of 125 turkeys. Little unknown tidbit: The 40 turkey buffs stays with you if you continue to kill turkeys, and when you get to 80 the big Turkinator buff thingy goes off again (basically for each additional 40 turkeys killed).

Yeah. This is a tortoise and the hare case. Obviously if you're competing with 90 other players even at 3am there will be trouble. But I found people would shoot themselves in the foot trying to get this achievement. You have 30 seconds between kills to find your next turkey. Despite that, bloodthirsty savages would tear through a place as fast and as furiously as they could. They'd run out of turkeys because they killed them too fast and they weren't repopping in time to fuel the turkinator bloodlust. Go slowly! If you see another turkey, walk up to it, even if you're a caster, and melee it. Heck, don't even kill it unless you see your next target already.

I killed 125 in a row, with time to loot each one, this way.

Oh, another tip for next year: They are beasts, not critters, so anything you can do to get their attention without killing them will have them pecking at you instead of running away. Keep one of the buggers at your side to fill in a gap.

Blood Sport: Scrubby McDouche and his army of excuses {WoW}

Nov 25th 2009 3:05PM It is a widely accepted and safe practice to assume when anything computer-related is discussed, it refers to PCs running Windows.

Macs are computers owned by people who thought the iPod was cool and based a computer purchase on that.

Apple Mission Statement:

Put out failure after failure product until we eventually hit on something people like. Then use that success of that one product to bring back all our failure products that couldn't survive based on their own merits.

Also, market to hipster douchebags while alienating 95% of the real people in the world.

And always, ALWAYS make sure everything we touch, no matter how large or how small, is stamped with the phrase "Designed by Apple in California". Especially small white wires with poorly fitted ends that wear out and fail after a few months' normal usage.

The Queue: Still wishing for weather {WoW}

Nov 24th 2009 5:13PM Anything you ask on the forums will just get stamped out like an ember.

I love the weather effects too.

I don't miss the day/night thing though. I mean, if you're a player with a set timetable, it really sucks to be playing "in the dark" for months at a time.

They should do what most games do and have an accelerated day/night cycle.
