    Agreed. The story was great until Cata, then it declined sharply, though you could tell it was dropping a bit by ICC.

    I've been unhappy with Warcraft lore since TBC.
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    Also agreed, I was okay kinda with nax and Ulduar was amazing, then it went down a bit with CoS and ICC was okay. The raid was fun, but very repetitive.

    I actually liked Garrosh's story, gives the Horde character, a backbone rather than appeasement. I like the fleshed out feeling of the war. To kill him off just because people don't like him, they want Thrall back as warchief, so let's take an orc who's learned the meaning of honor and refuses demonic empowerment in any way/shape/form, and let's let him be "corrupted". Because that's perfectly fitting wit---fuck, you know what, I can't go into another one of these. I just can't.

    I would've liked Garrosh as Warchief if Blizzard had actually had the balls to keep developing him into a better Warchief, rather than caving to the vocal playerbase.

    I didn't care about Garrosh since the start regardless, so I have no opinion of him. I went back to Human with my rogue half way through Cata because I prefer how they look.

    I loved my Blood Elf, I prefer it's stealth and attack animations, but I loved my human since I changed again (my rogue/assassin/thief characters have always been female).

    For the record by "since TBC" I meant I still dislike the Draenei retcon that allowed them to be included as a playable race. It's even more embarrassing that the Draenei have not really featured prominently in anything since Sunwell.

    I really like the setting for WotLK. The whole thing just clicked together in northrend.
    I agree with Drake that the lore has in general been on a slow fall for a while...and now it's only concerned with the moment rather than the universe as a whole.

    Didn't know about Gorosh...but they were clearly building him up for a fall. I'll prob check out this MoP pre-paunch sometime during my free month of wow...but we'll see if it makes me wanna put up the cash for the xpac and play with old friends again.

    im only getting it (im not paying for it) is because bro wants me to play.. so he'll buy it all for me.

    mostly because i can't play GW2 all the time since i don't have a comp to do so

    I'm more pissed off that blizzard gave up on gallywix. I mean he wasn't in cataclysm at all outside kazan islands and now he is not in MoP either. He isn't even in the freaken game outside the starting zone and he never got his model update.

    WTF are they doing with him and the goblin race in general is missing a story here.

    Man. When it comes to hardware, it's hard for me to sacrifice quality for the sake of price. It really is.

    *eyes Steelseries headsets*

    I wish their neckband came in a color other than white.

    I fully intend to have a lavishly furnished mancave when I finally own my own house.

    Several square feet of which will have to be dedicated to my multi-monitor extremely-over-priced top-of-the-line PC.


    I've always liked the concept of a headset going around the back of the head, but every single one I've ever seen is flimsy in design and clips to the ears, both of which turn me off the concept. The SteelSeries Siberia neckband thing is the first one that really intrigues me.

    I've learned, often the hard way, that if I don't wait a bit and pay a bit more for the quality, I tend to be less satisfied in the long run. I sometimes compromise still, but, if I can hold out and save that extra little bit needed; well, it turns out better.

    I'll agree on the clips to ears thing. Part of that is probably because I wear glasses. I've only ever wore one set that was actually really comfortable.

    That's not a mancave. A mancave is literally a cave.

    A cave where you have tea parties with Conan the Barbarian, watch My Little Pony on your 41'' LCD TV that you stole from a store while the riots were going on last year, drink illegally brewed hooch with enough alcohol content to kill a buffalo from 30 metres away, crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentation of their women.

    My Razer Caricharas, however it's spelled, has lasted me for two years, and it's only flaw is that within the first few months of owning it, the toy poodle somehow managed to pull it off the desk by the extremely length wire, and chewed on the cords connecting the right speaker to the left. Which means I've been running with half a headset in all that time. :P

    Aside from that, it's decent quality. The mic swivel wore out a bit, but I could handle that.

    I figure if a SteelSeries can't survive for two years, with all the praise their headset has received, and a Razer headset can, considering how much flak I've seen thrown at them for their product quality, then... well, I know at least that I'll no longer believe SteelSeries to be high quality. :3

    I'll be sure to install a secret entrance, disguised in the same way that the assassin tombs were in AC2.

    That why I think Metzens lore is shit.
    He only focuses on one or two characters (and always on green jesus) and completely ignores the rest of the lore "universe".


    One of the things I really love about GW2 is that all races are treated with equal importance.
