WoW Moviewatch: The Elwynn Dream {WoW}

Because he can use a level editor, place pre-existing models, and replace textures?

The Lost Worlds of WoW {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2007 3:10PM Incredibly interesting if you're into the evolution of the game. I think they should put "Chow is my love monkey" back into the game somewhere for obvious reasons.

Silvermoon University holds class in Azeroth {WoW}

Yeah, I found that comment pretty hilarious, too. The game can be played many, many different ways. Racing a character to 70 is not the only way to have fun ;)

A Tigole flashback to Legacy of Steel {WoW}

Oct 17th 2007 7:59AM You can’t be so naïve to think Kaplan alone rescued World of Warcraft from becoming a boring pile of MMORPG similar to Everquest, that he alone had the single perspective that there were problems with Everquest’s game play.

The problem with Kaplan personally is that 10 years later he’s still that 20-year old, only now with a much lager ego. Setting aside his poor public relations, he’s also not that great of a designer. It’s nice to think that perhaps he’s getting better and that Ahn’Qiraj was simply a learning experience but with a couple of loose exceptions we’re still jumping into the same old dungeons fighting the same bosses with the same old tactics. The raiding game features tougher strategy but it still follows a fairly strict “this is how to beat the boss, you must do it this way” philosophy.

Of course, Kaplan is not alone in this as he simply makes an easy target for the fanatical to rage upon but to praise the man for making sure WoW didn’t turn into Everquest is like praising Kelloggs for not making Froot Loops taste like rocks and tree bark.

Voice-chat and women who play WoW {WoW}

Oct 9th 2007 3:30PM "(Okay I'm on to you guys now...putting up another chat related post just gives you an excuse to put that picture up of the geekily-hot redhead for us all to drool over! Yeah I'm onto you now)"

"Oh, and btw, if the girl in your stock photo is single, plz 2 b sending me her number. Kthx!"

I hope those were written for satirical purposes, otherwise you two are providing strong support for women NOT to use voice chat.

Around Azeroth: Newman's Landing {WoW}

Oct 5th 2007 11:40AM Given that Wow Wiki also states that area might have been named after a GM that died of a heart attack, with bones representing him (classy!), I think it's reasonable to doubt ;)

Still, it's been a long time since I've seen the human intro. I'll have to investigate to see if this does, indeed, solve an old mystery.

Is Blizzard exploiting WoW players? {WoW}

Oct 4th 2007 11:36AM You don't find the public test realms a little bit exploitative? Sure, we get a sneak preview of upcoming content, but we are essentially paying Blizzard to bug test.

It works out in the end but it's still a little bit on the creepy side.

Breakfast Topic: Your favorite silly things {WoW}

Oct 1st 2007 2:17PM "I'm a huge trekkie, and I loved the NPCs in Exodar named after five of the nine lives of Dax."

My wife caught that one before I did! I was so proud. :)

Breakfast Topic: Buying and selling {WoW}

Sep 21st 2007 9:31AM To all of the supposed Europeans touting their obvious superiority to teens in a thread about selling accounts for a video game played I...

Wait, I don't think I have to add anything to that.

Back on topic:

And EULA aside, if you have that sort of mentality to get the absolute best items in the game I doubt you have the sentimentality to really care about selling that character.
