Props to Blizzard. It feels strange that no-flying was even on the table, and from what we’ve heard over the past couple of years makes it clear it was even a controversial topic internally. Like I get that there was a sudden influx of former wow devs or whatever from Titan and that likely saw a shift away from the direction WoW was going, but to have a feature in the game for SEVER YEARS be pulled in current and any future content over really dumb reasons (No one expects to be flying while leveling up, besides Cataclysm, literally every Continue reading →
One of the features in the upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion to World of Warcraft was a squishing of numbers. I wasn’t planning to make a post on this, but I thought it was interesting enough to through up — you see on the night before the pre-patch that included the “squishing” I took some screenshots of some of my characters before, so that later I could compare them for after the squish.

I’ve always been kind of uninterested in taking screenshots, even though they can be really fun. I think it stems back to my older computer(s) that would freeze up whenever I tried to take them. The game I’ve played the longest is probably World of Warcraft, and while I don’t have many screenshots, compared to others, I do have quite a few.

Figured I’d put them on my site — I didn’t catalog as much Continue reading →
I thought I’d share the choice Pandarens are given at the end of the starter zone from World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria beta.
It all started back in Vanilla, I think even the beta briefly. Truth be told I wasn’t as into WoW then, to me the game seemed far to grindy (more so then I was interested in). Many folks actually forget that one of the ideas behind WoW was to be a sort of “casual gamer’s Everquest” (talk about a grindy game!). You see lots of people, at least the vocal ones, complaining about how bad WoW has gotten, how lame Cataclysm is, and go on to talk about the glory days of Classic (or TBC). Frankly it’s all nonsense, I Continue reading →
