RPGenius: Tanking Skuul’s Lair

September 28, 2011 1 comment

School

Back to school to prove to dad I

Time to cue in some old skuul Tupac, most specifically his song “Changes.”   World of Warcraft fans are getting inundated with a plethora of game modifications to come on the way to, and possibly before and after, patch 4.3 is dropped.  Darkmoon Island, three new story heroics, a final expansion raid against Deathwing himself, new tier loot art releases, a major overhaul to the role of tanking, and, most importantly, PANDAS!  Seriously, pretty sure Blizzard is just trolling us with panda teasers, but it is fun nonetheless.

By now most everyone has heard stories about the Norwegian man who slaughtered nearly 70 people, including a large number of kids.  Since you’re reading this, you are probably also aware that he played World of Warcraft.   Read more…

RPGenius: Orcs play linebacker

Blue 42 Y right X flat on 2.

I'm never gonna learn this playbook...

Are you ready for some football?!?  Yes, the season has started, albeit through the virtually meaningless month that is preseason football.   The only real benefit to this set of games is that I can check out a few of my sleepers that I hope to draft in my fantasy football league. (side note, we should start an OverRaided/TGT fantasy league…if anyone else is interested).

And this is the one part of the year where I can cheer as my Cleveland Browns beat up on the Packers.  Yes, Green Bay, our starters can kick the crap out of your 3rd stringers.  However, if you are not a football fan, (A) you are missing out, and (B) I promise to get to some WoW-tastic blogging shortly.

Mogging Cookies to Fruit = Bad Idea

Is WoW more important than school? Why are Hunter abilities useless in PVP?? There’s a new 40 vs. 40 battleground in the making!? Is WoW finally bringing back the RPG in MMORPG?! Why do old people look like they’re chewing on something when they’re not!?! All this and more on this blogisode of Stable Talk! [insert “Ladies and Gentlemen” by Saliva here] Read more…

RPGenius: Rolling your toon

Mr.T

I pity the fool who ain't rollin with the Mohawks!

In the beginning, the Old Gods created the toons, and it was good.

Then they created the stamina, to sustain the toons, and it too was good.

After this, the Old Gods created the boars to allow the toons to use their stamina and skill, and it was good.

Then they created the rogues, and everything went to hell.

I don’t remember the exact date when I started living life as a game, and I don’t remember the exact event that caused this part of my soul to awaken.  What I do know is that my dad is probably to thank/blame for this.

Sure I like “dags.” I like caravans more.

Why is it harder to crumble a sheet of paper than destroying a Glaive? Is the Brewmastery profession on its way?? Are players more efficient when sober or gay!? Why am I, inadvertently, rhyming!!? Will Pandaria ever be founded in Azeroth!?! You can hit conquest cap without doing rated BGs!?!? All this and more on this “Blogisode” of Stable Talk!!! Read more…
