Everyone who played vanilla and dared to cross the Plaguelands may have run into these little pools of blood by the roadside, or in a copse of trees or a ditch. And if you were curious enough, your story might have continued like so.
Intrigue forced you to dismount or go […]
In commemoration of Blizzard for Blizzcon, I present this fun, totally unofficial, totally biased list of my Top 5 Raids (pre-Mists of Pandaria) in our beloved World of Warcraft.
Alright, so this might be surprising to some of you, but hopefully not most of you because Zul’Gurub was not only awesome, but […]
There’s two reasons I want to do this: the first is to give new readers some incentive to read older articles they might have missed. The other is to bring up topics written in the past which seem to have continued relevance or which are currently being discussed in the blogosphere. Besides, who doesn’t like […]
So …what’s your favorite raid in World of Warcraft?
I’ve got many fond memories, but I probably only have 2 or 3 raids that I really felt were just awesome! Of course, when you experienced them and who you experienced them with will affect how you look at it, but that’s irrelevant. I’m only asking […]
If you’re in my neck of the woods (107 degrees according to my car), go get a nice large pitcher of iced tea, fill an insulated or frozen cup with ice cubes, and have a nice sit down to enjoy the refreshing taste while you read this. This won’t be one of my shorter articles, […]
I think WoW changed my expectations of an MMO. This may seem obvious, but I do believe there are players who don’t realize this.

Inspired by the last couple of posts over at WoW Insider on their feature section, Know Your Lore, here’s a bit of fanciful speculation on what could have been. A previous article in the series talked about Algalon the Observer and his demise. This week is about how players, over the […]
For anyone who wants to see where these mysogynerds and other ignoramuses of the gamer community hang out, check out MMO Champion (as if most of you didn’t know this). Their responses to Blizzard recognizing the inappropriateness of Ji Firepaws dialogue towards women is fraught with anger and filled with stupidity. “Here they go listening […]
An interesting idea occurred to me not long ago about how MMOs grow, plateau, and decline. I’m still researching the topic in depth, but there are some comments and general observations I wanted to share.
The announcement of Blizzard’s latest marketing scheme gave me more food for thought and was the impetus for […]
Mr. Street is clearly stressed out. Must be the holiday tempo getting to him. In the latest dev cooler, Ghostcrawler once again tries to “tell it like it is”, but this time with a lot less polite (if that were possible). This lecture he delivers to the players is […]
