Happy New Year 2011 from my family and I to you and yours. With the New Year comes a couple of updates to my World of Warcraft pages: BV’s WoW Character Stats updated to reflect that my Rogue is now capped at 85. BV’s Addon page is updated with the latest released addon information. BV EDIT: Another update: my Death Knight is now 85 as of January 2, 2011.

Todays FFIV newsletter spam made me laugh. I played FF14 for about 2 hours after it was hot off the press. In its state, I cannot see how anyone can turn the game around to make it any better. Basic gameplay mechanics are wrong as well as the lack of a tutorial of any sort. Which ends up with you killing one rabbit, then make a shot at another and die… for hours. Screw that. I understand that FF14 “just came out” and it does not have the development time [Continue Reading]

World of Warcraft Patch 4.0.1 was released today. Great, now I get to relearn playing the game that I have used for six years all over again. Thankfully, the changes that Blizzard makes are all in a positive direction and always make the game better. This also means that most, if not all, addons/modifications to the UI are magically invalid. Thankfully, I will be updating my mod list with the latest addons that I use as well as their current compatibility with the latest WoW version. With about 50% of [Continue Reading]

If you were thinking of purchasing this game, please do yourself a favor and avoid the temptation. It is such an epic failure that I find it hard to put into words just how much I hate this game. I may put forth the effort in making a review, but it is doubtful that I will waste any more time then I already have on this game.

An interesting discussion on the Starcraft forums regarding AT (Arranged Teams) vs RT (Random Teams) is brewing. It seems that Blizzard does not acknowledge the fact that AT VS RT is just plain wrong. Arranged Teams have a set stratagy out of the gate to defeat their opposition while RT’s have to figure it out on the fly. Usually, in the RT battles I have participated in, someone a few minutes into the battle will say “Plan?” with a reply resembling “Rush” with everyone ignoring that… and just doing their own thing.
