Comment on 5 differences between an expansion and a patch by WoW Legion: Content Patches over Expansions any Day! |

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 21:38:35 +0000

[…] are a few things, in fact Spinks (who is dearly missed in the blogosphere!) has written about the differences between expansions and patches five years ago on her blog. And I agree with her: expansions have a more fundamental power to reset […]



Comment on [Bloggy Xmas] [Gaming Communities] But above all, be kind! by Syl (@Gypsy_Syl)

"(The kindness btw is the other people in the group sticking up for the guy.)" This clarification made me laugh! ;) Oh dear, I've obviously ranted about meters already this week but all in all, I have met some incredibly friendly PuGs in WoD so far - what surprised me too is how every time someone needs a quest item from a heroic (usually for individual Inn quests), there's a guy showing them where and the entire group is happy to clear some extra trash if needed. Btw I think the ingame dungeon guide is quite fabulous! Not everyone seems to be aware of it, but I've already been able to help quite a few people out just by umm, repeating what it says there. :P

[…] Age: Inquisition. I recently wrapped up a second play-through of Dragon Age 2 so was all ready for Dragon Age Keep, a rather nifty site that allows you to see and tinker with various events from the first two […]

Totalbiscuit's defence of GG is so disappointing. He's quite a long way from being the worst offender, but I do find his position so objectionable that I've unfollowed his twitter etc (not that he'll care, as he has a bajillion followers).

They're also going for the sponsorship dollars too, by keeping it in the PC arena. There's going to be naturally more sponsors in PC games as everything is customizable on those rigs; if they went for the console market, the amount of money third parties could make off of potential customers is a bit more limited.

Ah, saw the Union Jack on her coat. Yeah, a bad Cockney accent. Better than most of the accents in Gilneas, but that's not saying much.

Oh, and given the GGers that showed up on The Mary Sue's website, you'd think that Morhaime was talking about those evil SJWs harassing the One True Gamerhood.

I thought the access was Aussie, but maybe that's just me. Seems that we now know how Blizzard is going to grab a slice of the League of Legends pie.

Hilariously, I saw one simpering halfwit claim that Mike Morhaime's comments were actually PRO-GamerGate. Because when he said "Let's take a stand to reject hate and harassment", OBVIOUSLY he was referring to the hate and harassment directed at "true gamers" by "Social Justice Warriors", right?
