Hey everyone, my name is Sabor117, and I’m a WoW addict. You know, I was recently introduced to the very well written TV show The West Wing in which a character talks about alcoholism as being where a normal person would have one drink, an alcoholic has ten. They essentially just can’t stop themselves, or at leas that’s what I took away. I got off World of Warcraft four years ago, it was just after I finished school and I found that I just couldn’t quite afford it any longer (both time and money wise). So, I quit, cold turkey. I got my main character to 85 in Cataclysm and then left and never looked back. Continue reading
It is that time of week where once again I delve into the grim and gritty business of video game news. It’s a cut-throat world out there, a game eat game world. A world in which only the fittest and most awesome games survive. And Call of Duty of course (OOoooh! ZING!). But seriously, it’s not really that bad (well not for everyone) and we’ve got some pretty interesting bits and pieces of news to regale you with today. Also I want to make it clear that the above video is indeed sort of relevant to this post as you shall find out later (if you read through this!)
So, what’s new Gamers?
A great many games have won awards over the past month as 2011 draws to a close. But now it is the moment they have surely all been waiting for. The moment for the most prestigious awards ever created in the world of video games… Yes dear friends… I am talking of The MMGaming Awards!
Let us get right down to business!
You might well be aware that Blizzard have already announced the next stage for World of Warcraft. A far away and mystical land known as Pandaria. With the traditional plethora of new features and updates has come something which has surprised an awful lot of people and caused a fair amount of uproar in the World of Warcraft community. Blizzard have decided to scrap their traditional Talent Tree system that they have been using for all of the seven years WoW has been active in favour of a new system.
I have decided to tell you a little bit about it and give you my pennies worth.
Despite popular belief, yes people still play World of Warcraft. And despite Tim’s belief I still believe the game to be not only worth following but worth playing. And trust me, if I had enough money and a lot more free time then I WOULD be playing it. I mean of course due to my maturity I would take breaks in order to play stuff like SWTOR but I do think that I would eventually return to WoW (although SWTOR was damn good…) because it’s evil regime has worked and it’s succeeded in programming me to be just another one of it’s mindless drones.
Holy hell… That is a fucking LOT of people Tim has to put up with every time he plays. Continue reading
One of the things that always bothered me a little about World of Warcraft was how quickly new stuff seemed to come out. After any patch or expansion came out you would only just be getting into the swing of things when suddenly the next stage was announced and then tested and then released.
Case in point. During my time playing through the cold wastes of Northrend I managed to raid occasionally, but went through guild after guild as one by one they split up, stopped raiding or just stopped playing. So when I finally manage to get a good guild I thought I might finally be able to get to the end-game content. And then Blizzard announces Cataclysm and so I suddenly have a time limit on killing the Lich King before it will become obsolete. Still managed though… SPARTANS!!!
