News Comments > World of Warcraft Warlords of Draenor Announced

Are they just out of original ideas?

Let's go to Draenor!
Uh, guys, we did that in the first expansion.
Oh, right. Let's go back in time to the original Draenor!

Blah. And I looked at the improved character models and didn't see much of a difference. I guess I could go and look up an old model, but if I can't tell right away, then it really isn't a big enough difference to matter.

This will probably be the first expansion I don't even buy. I probably shouldn't have bought MoP either.

Blue, I have 2 words for you:

Mulching. Mower.

I have a push mower (Small lawn) that mulches into a bag. I haven't raked leaves in...well, not since I can remember. Just like mowing the lawn, except it sucks all the leaves into the bag. Then you either dump the whole thing into a mulch pile or set it out for the pickup. Wasn't too expensive either.

http://tinyurl.com/lms4uyq

We have the self-propelled one because my wife likes that, but the non-self propelled one is $100 cheaper. ($199)

Edited, because I somehow created a tiny url that pointed to tiny url. Derp.

Yup, always a few assholes crowing "Flu shots can't make you sick!"

My flu shot put me in the hospital, and the doctors that saw me would disagree with you. It doesn't matter if the virus is dead, if the shot makes you sicker than shit, then if makes you fucking sick. Period.

Stupid doctors don't know shit....never gotten a flu shot, made me get one, and now I am sick as hell. Mother F-ing d-bags....

Hehe, I've had one flu shot in my life. It was free when I was working at IBM, so I said "What the hell?" and got it. I've literally never been sicker in my life, including the 2 times I had to be hospitalized for food poisoning.

I will NEVER get another flu shot. I feel your pain man. Feel better!

I just wanted to share a WTF moment.

I just clicked on my bookmark for Bluesnews, and as soon as the page loads I get a pop-up that tells me "Creston is now playing Borderlands 2."

I stared the the screen blankly for a few seconds thinking "WTF?" before I realized I had left Steam running. Just confused me that a gu from Blues popped as soon as I visited Blues.

Urrr... wot? Mr. Brazor, I have a call on line 2, it's Ultima Online. A call on line 3, it's EVE Online, a call on line 4, it's Final Fantasy XI, a call on line 5, it's Everquest, a call on line 6, it's Everquest 2, a call on line 7, it's... etc etc.

It's THE most succesful, obviously, but not the ONLY succesful MMO.


Ah, thank you, I read that and thought the same thing. I used to write for MMORPG.com, and I can tell you that MANY mmos are successful. There wouldn't be so damn many if they weren't. Nobody has achieved WoW success, but that was a one in a million shot that Blizzard probably won't be able to replicate again.

BTW, EQ came out in 1999 and it's STILL putting out expansions. If that's not successful, I don't know what is.

I don't know this time, I've had a few hardcore Duty Heads come in and bitch that this game sucks compared to all other COD games. Probably feeling the effect of a loss of the driving force behind IW.

I laughed. It's true though. I enjoyed the games, but only because I bought them for like $4 or $5 on STEAM. If I had paid $60 I would have been pissed.

@Redmask: Yeah, I've seen all sorts of contradicting information on the monthly fees, but best to go with the 'Official Word' you posted.

@nin: $3.33/month is a bit more reasonable, but still no console for me....nope, nope not going to do it!

@Agent.X7: . Go without cigs or beer for a day to save big time on PS+. I don't smoke, so not a big deal, but no beer for a day.....that's pushing it.



I don't blame you. Nobody wants to pay for multi. After a few years of paying for Live, I dropped it, and didn't miss it much at all.

If there weren't monthly games added for Plus customers, I'd be a lot less likely to bite. But so far, it seems like a great deal. Hopefully that continues.

edit: They've actually been extremely crafty, in that they keep handing out Vita games, which you can claim, even if you don't own a Vita. So that, at some point, you have this nice stack of games for it, and it starts to look a lot more attractive to folks like me, that normally wouldn't buy a portable.


The only reason I bought a Vita was for Uncharted: Golden Abyss. The only reason I still have it is because 99% of PS4 games are going to be remotely playable on it.

He gets his philosophy from a dude who grew up in South Jamaica and went to college in Harlem. People feel the inherent need to steal.

That tells you nothing about people as a whole, but very much about the background of the person who said it.

Yes! Just had a guy curse me out because I won't return his open software. Then he asked about trading it in and got more pissed.

People, it's entertainment software, not an investment. The minute you open it it's worth less than what you just paid. He wanted $50 cash. Haha, dude. That's what I pay for them brand new from the distributor. Why would I buy a used game from you for what I pay for a new one? I sell them used for $49.99 until the price drops in a few weeks. Derp.

More reasons why I've stuck to gaming on a PC; charging a monthly fee to play a MP game I've already paid for just doesn't jive with me. XBone, PS4, they're all still consoles.

Sony to charge monthly fee for multiplayer games on PS4 $9.00/Month? OUCH!


Until someone else provides more info, I'm calling bullshit on that...Plus works out to about $3.33 a month (catch it on sale for $40 a year), and has given me games like DX:HR, XCOM, Hotline Miami, Dragon's Dogma, Uncharted 3, Saint's Row 3, and more. And that's in the last 6 months.

edit: Sony update here

When PS4 launches on November 15, PlayStation Plus will continue to be offered at US $49.99 for a year membership. For less than $5 a month, PS Plus members will have access all the benefits across PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. At E3 earlier this year, we introduced a new PS Plus membership option for 30 days in North America and Europe ($9.99 /6.99), available now in the PlayStation Store.

So all it is is the addition of a month by month option.


I was just going to respond to say it is $9.99 if you pay monthly, but you beat me to it.

Also, anybody paying $9.99 a month is a tool. Scrape together another frickin' 7 bucks and get the 3 month for $17.99. Go without cigs or beer for a day to save big time on PS+.

Fuck football, SCOTCH!!! (sry, I'm Australian, in the race between booze and sport, booze wins

Srsly, if you buy one good bottle a year, throw money at Glenmorangie... =D

And if you must drink it cold, get scotch rocks (http://www.stonechilled.com/) ffs, a single malt that good should not be raped by ice cubes...

I don't know, for us laymen many expensive liquors taste so alike that spending money on a more expensive brand is futile. I worked at a bar for over a year, and I could not justify spending the type of money some of these distillers want for their product.

Had a friend whose rich aunt and uncle gave her a $200 bottle of wine for her college graduation. Her, her brother, brother's girlfriend, and I popped that bottle open, let it breath a bit, and then toasted. We all promptly spit it back out and ended up mixing this ridiculously priced wine with fruit juice to make it palatable.

Wine is like liquor, to me. I've done many wine tours, I've tasted many liquors. Some added expense usually nets you a better product, but it seems like once you go above a certain threshold you're just paying for the prestige and the taste doesn't get any better.

Case in point - My favorite tequila is Cabo. Just excellent, smooth, agave liquor. At around $40 - $50 a bottle, it seems to be the sweet spot for tequila. I've tried $100 a bottle Angel Bendito and thought it didn't taste as good.

As for the over-heating charge. It sounds like they were correct. It does over-heat if you put it in an airtight box. It's the details.

All the morons I had to deal with when I was working IT who fried PCs by putting them in enclosed spaces? Yeah, those guys apparently own consoles too.

I've heard it dies on the mission "Shit hits the Fan" when the hovercraft stops so he can have a shit only to do so on a land mine and be blown up (along with his shit, which then hits the fan) Mad

That sounds preposterous on so many levels. The least of which being that a dog turd weighs far too little to set off a land mine...

Dark Horizons posts a story about how they have reached out to Vin Diesel and everyone picks it up and says he is in talks.

I'm not sure how eager he is to pick up anymore projects. He is perpetually working on Hannibal and Fast and Furious, he is planning a new Riddick, doing voice work for some movies, etc. I know he has said that he has to turn down some roles already because he is so busy, so I'm not sure he would jump at the chance to play a video game character that was never all that popular.

Let's hope that these statements prove to be true and that we don't see a repeat of the PS3's YLOD.

Yes, let's hope that the very rare YLOD doesn't happen again. You know, unlike the extremely common RROD from Xbox 360.

Unfortunately, those days are over for the big games. EA isn't the only company to release shooters with tons of DLC. 2K, Activision, Bethesda, they all do the DLC thing. They figured they can't up the base price so they will chop parts off and sell them separately to increase the baseline.

Bethesda overall releases incredible DLC, though. I dare anyone to not find enough value in Dragonborn, for example. Yes, yes, horse armor, lolz, that was like 7 years ago. Their DLC stuff now is excellent, they're not going to release a rehashed map pack for 15 fucking dollars.

For their own games, sure. For games they only publish? They still release horseshit with the gold. The crap time trial DLC for Dishonored? I loved Dishonored, but I haven't spent a dime on DLC because the first one was bullshit.

The frustrating thing is that other companies like Valve have shown you can provide value while still being very profitable. EA just isn't built that way though and lacks long term vision, they're too focused on the quarter to quarter financials.

Heh, welcome to business 101. Every single one of us learns to focus on the long term profit in school, and then as soon as we graduate there's a 99% chance you will work for a company focused entirely on the short term.
