Playing WoW with an Xbox 360 controller via Switchblade {WoW}

Oct 17th 2007 2:26AM How the heck are you going to type messages with that thing? What if you're a class that needs to use more than 12 action buttons (Read: Any class above level 20)?

Gah, so many problems. Not worth it.

Breakfast Topic: Your favorite city {WoW}

Oct 5th 2007 10:40AM TB's my favorite major city. It's extremely well-laid out (Anvil, Forge, Auctioneers, Bankers, and General Goods Vendors that AREN'T a 5-minute walk from each other?! What a concept!), and very very beautiful. As long as you can avoid falling off the edges (Or have a parachute cloak equipped), it's great.

In terms of minor towns, my favorite is definitely Booty Bay. I love the pirate atmosphere.

AOL plans WoW social network at wow.com {WoW}

Oct 2nd 2007 11:07AM Good article, but please, for the love of god, stop using "it's" when you're talking about a possessive and should be using "its" instead.

That's all.

Is "ugly" the new beautiful, and "evil" the new good? [Updated] {WoW}

Sep 16th 2007 7:09PM My perspective on the races. Please note that this only refers to the Horde/alliance factions of said races, and not the other factions (e.g. ZG trolls, the evil tauren, corrupted night elves, scourge)

Humans: Generally not bad, but the rampant xenophobia and corruption is really not helping. There are some examples of wholly good humans (Jaina), but I'd classify them as neutral.

Dwarves: A step up from Humans, but they're greedy and inconsiderate of the environment in their quest to find power and wealth within the earth. A step up from Neutral, but not truly good.

Gnomes: Completely off the scale. No real way to classify them. They're just so strange and quirky. They have access to great power, but they don't really have the means or will to control it and it usually ends in self-destruction.

Night Elves: They have the best of intentions (Basically, the preservation of the world), but usually screw up in the execution. They're also very xenophobic as a whole. They're a tainted good.

Draenei: Not much to say other than the fact that they're frighteningly good.

Orcs: They have a really terrible history, but now Thrall seems to have converted them from a race of evil savages to a race of noble savages. They want to ensure their place in the world, and are generally accepting of other races. The problem is that they lack tact concerning race relations and don't respect the environment (See: Ashenvale). I'd place them between Neutral and Good.

Trolls: Have a bad history like the Orcs, but they seem to have settled down. They not bad, but they aren't really making an effort to do any good. I'd put them just slightly above Neutral.

Tauren: Peace-loving tree huggers. In my opinion, they're the most wholly good out of all races except for the Draenei (Who I find a little too good....).

Forsaken: Been screwed over by everyone and everything, and want revenge on everyone and everything. I'd place them squarely at "Evil" at this point.

Blood Elves: Basically, they're addicts. They want magic, and want it now. Definitely between "neutral" and "evil".

Breakfast Topic: Mastery of a difficult class {WoW}

Sep 1st 2007 8:09PM Really, Hunter raiding isn't that hard; once you've learned it, it's pretty easy to adapt.

The hard past of mastering a Hunter is doing well in Arenas and small-scale PVP; BG's are another matter (It's incredibly easy to do well as a Hunter in those), but in Arenas, you can always tell the difference between a good Hunter and a bad Hunter; it has to do with placement, strategy, and above all, keeping your opponent at range.

Warcraft Archive Giveaway {WoW}

Aug 30th 2007 2:16PM I'll try for this!

The console interactivity I wish WoW could have {WoW}

Aug 22nd 2007 2:29PM Ugh, correcting my last post -

The first "concolses" should be "consoles" and the first "environent" should be "environment".

Note to self: Don't post when I've gotten

The console interactivity I wish WoW could have {WoW}

Aug 22nd 2007 2:26PM @3

You should read the whole article before posting. He never says WoW should be developed for concolses - he states that WoW should incorporate the environental interactivity that many console games have.

Now, I could do with a bit more interaction with the environment in WoW, but console games are no more interactive than a PC game - see Half-Life 2 and Bioshock for good examples.

Breakfast Topic: Where in Azeroth would you live? {WoW}

Aug 20th 2007 4:44PM Definitely Booty Bay or Hinterlands.

Why the expansion isn't revolutionary (and why it shouldn't be) {WoW}

Aug 7th 2007 4:37PM @40

Please read the comments before posting. The expansion's not going to be released within the next 10 months, at least. Stop complaining.
