Quote of the Day: “The Truth Hurts” or “Why Does Everything Take Longer?”

January 30, 2012 Leave a comment

Mr. Justin Olivetti had a gem of line in his latest post today:

I just kind of assumed the game would have them level up rapidly as with any other BioWare title, but I guess I should’ve realized that this is an MMO, and MMOs mean “Everything takes longer.”

Where’s the dialogue option for “Friend Zone”?, Biobreak

Quote of the Day: “A Positive Outlook on Firelands Nerf” or “The Rest of Us”

As for the challenge, look if your guild was hardcore you probably finished Firelands early, you earned your stripes and can say I cleared it before the nerfs, even some of you on heroic mode.  Then there is the rest of us, we work, we go to school we have little time to dedicate to being as focused as the other hardcore players but still want to see the content completed.  That is what this nerf represents, a way for the rest of the community to see the content.

Quote of the Day: “5-Mans, Redefined” or “A Summer Job Analogy”

September 22, 2011 Leave a comment

Are 5-mans legitimate content, somewhere players are supposed to be? Currently they are the equivalent of teenage summer jobs. Sure, go there for a little while, but only to save up for college or a car or because you parents won’t stop nagging you otherwise. If you’re not in high school, or at least college, if you are somehow a 40-year-old man with a family and you are still working at McDonalds or the local park district, something is wrong. That’s what 5-mans are currently. You are expected to do them, but also to be done with them and if you have to go back, it is not a nice feeling.

“So as I mentioned in my last post, I started a new character yesterday. He’s now level 15 or 16 and holy smokes, World of Warcraft is holding my hand to the point where I’m feeling molested.”

We all know Arrow’s Impossibility Theorem, so why try and make life more complicated?

Uh… I didn’t know what it is. I read it. I still don’t know what it is. Help?

Quote of the Day: “Sarcasm Masked” or “A Very ‘Clever’ Use of Quotations”

November 1, 2010 1 comment

The company making 500m in profit a year can’t figure out how to get a couple hundred people fighting in one area (it’s technically impossible, yo), while a ‘niche’ game just had a little issue with 3100 players in one area. Actually 3100 is just about the max concurrent users said 500m profit company can support on one server, across hundreds of instances and all that. That ‘niche’ game sets the record for total number of players on one server just about every month.

Only one is really ‘accessible’ though. Rainbows for that.
