The Queue: Another Tuesday in Azeroth {WoW}

Nov 2nd 2010 11:43AM Ed, I think you're forgetting that ICC has it's very own built in version of the mega-buff we got in patch 3.0.2: Strength of Wrynnscreams Warsong.

And besides, most people are doing stupid DPS ever since 4.0.1 hit (as a Cat I've started doing 16k on Deathbringer 10 man, where before the patch I could maybe break 12k on 25 man), and healer manapools are still a bottomless void, so that's not really an issue either.

The Queue: Veronica Day {WoW}

Nov 1st 2010 1:18PM After years of wiping, I finally succeeded in defeating Lady RNG... The Zulian Tiger, Razzishi Raptor and White Hawkstrider all dropped for me within less than 24 hours of each other. The raptor and tiger dropped in the same ZG run, even!

And yea verily did I get cussed out in /G.

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm intro unleashes Deathwing {Joystiq}

Oct 18th 2010 12:25PM @ShiroShishi Not to mention all the changes to game mechanics, class skills/spells and talent trees. The game is barely recognisable as the WoW we all got addicted to five years ago.

Blizzard now moderating 'inappropriate' StarCraft 2 maps {Joystiq}

The Light and How to Swing It: Ret talents in Cataclysm {WoW}

Aug 5th 2010 5:18AM Here's what we'll do. You go and re-read the sentence I quoted and the tooltip for Primal Fury, and I'll stay here and have my lunch. Then we can continue this argument if you still want to.

The Light and How to Swing It: Ret talents in Cataclysm {WoW}

Aug 5th 2010 2:21AM "You know how rogues and cats have talents that give them a combo point back after using a finisher?"

I've been feral for about two years now, and I'm certain rogues are the only ones with that talent (Ruthlessness in Assassination, if I recall).

Develop: How is digital distribution changing the games you play? {Joystiq}

Jul 19th 2010 12:29PM @Nintari I collect games too, at least certain IP's, and I have all my old Nintendo consoles from way back in '88 (NES through Wii) in working condition with most of the games I had as a kid. For newer games though, I'm all over Steam. For me, it's like this: If I just want to play it, I'll buy it on Steam (or in a shop if I find it stupidly cheap somewhere), but if it's a game series that I have a special relationship to (i.e. Assassins Creed, Zelda, WoW), I'll buy the collectors edition to have it on display. I don't really care for having shelf upon shelf of games that I'm never going to play again, I'd rather just have the ones that I know I'm going to pull out every few years and play through for nostalgias sake.

As for your concern about the death of boxed games, I hope the future is going to turn into a case where [i]all[/i] games are distributed almost exclusively through DD, but still with the special/collectors edition boxes available for us collectors. If boxed games really do go the way of the dinosaur, well... sucks to be me, but I'm not going to quit playing them for anything short of decapitation.

Ventrilo vs. Mumble {WoW}

Jul 19th 2010 1:24AM I'm about to recommend to my guild that we start to use Mumble instead of Vent. Can anyone recommend a good server host in Europe, preferably in the UK or thereabouts?

Shifting Perspectives: Revisiting Cataclysm talents, part 2 {WoW}
