I Survived the Goblin Starting Zone and All I Got Was This Stupid BFF Report
2010/08/05 at 12:59 PM
All I have to say is, the Goblin starting experience was clearly directed by Michael Bay.
Oh, and balls.
The Weekly Marmot - The Cataclysm Healing Game (Part 2)
2010/08/03 at 11:21 PM
This week, in part 2 of my discussion on the effects that the Cataclysm healing changes have on the game, I go over how Tanking and DPS roles will be affected. Will avoidance make a comeback? How responsible are DPS for their survivability? These questions and more will be answered in this week's show!
Also, my wallpaper is amazing.
The Weekly Marmot - The Cataclysm Healing Game (Part 1)
2010/07/30 at 7:31 PM
This week, in the first of a two-part series, I begin a discussion about the changes to the way health and healing works in Cataclysm. To start, I take a little trip down memory lane to how healing worked in The Burning Crusade, as well as WoW Classic.
Also, LOOK AT THE PUPPY.
The BFF Report..er.. Reports from the Worgen Starting Zones!
2010/07/29 at 1:22 PM
I finally got into Cataclysm and with it, over 800gb of in game footage that I have to somehow squeeze into these tiny ten minute segments. The first piece of coverage I'm offering up is a walkthrough of the Worgen starting zone. Besides all the bareback riding, missed opportunities for good Twilight jokes (is there such thing?), and epic phasing abuse, Blizz seems to have taken a completely different approach to creating these zones than what we are used to.
Think Westfall... probably 80% of the quests are centered at Sentinel Hill, Gilneas is the complete opposite. I found myself doing 2-3 quests at each outpost/abandoned house/street corner before moving on to the next mini-hub. This was cool and all, but I found that (besides Grandma Wahl) in the end, I didn't really care about any of them. I mean, Ill never forget Mankrik, Jitters, the fat drunk in Westfall hills, but these guys? Who cares!
*OMG SPOILER ALART!11*
It's not like I'm going to see them again anyways...
The BFF Report Welcomes You to the Future...?
2010/07/22 at 12:59 AM
When I first walked in the door at E3, there was this super attractive young lady (shocker, right?) who took my hand and escorted me over to this giant, baby food orange booth. She likely picked me because of my incredible aura of masculinity, and not because Dolby was standing right behind me sporting a super giant news camera, amirite? She dropped a funky PS3'esque controller into my, now sweaty, palm and introduced me to the future of gaming. Sort of..
You guys ever heard of this fancy "cloud computing" technology that allows you to access documents from virtually any computer terminal? Well, replace those silly DPS calculators with games and you have OnLive. The game I was playing was not hosted by any console or gaming PC anywhere in the vicinity, but rather being streamed, live, over the interwebs, to the giant LCD TV in front of me. The first thing that came to mind was "LOLOLLOLatency," but after ninja tapping the controller a few times...
btw, I got her number.
The Weekly Marmot - Talents Part 2 & Blizzard Twitter Chat
2010/07/20 at 7:18 PM
This week on the Weekly Marmot, I briefly discuss the new talents that hit the Cataclysm beta last week, and then spend the rest of the episode talking about Paladins. Seriously, Holy Power sounds amazing. Check it out.
Also, I'm being hunted by Nazgul.

The BFF Report Pretends to have Never Played WoW...
2010/07/12 at 1:38 PM
Remember back when all of you claim to have started playing WoW? You know, the pre-beta days when the game was nothing but conceptual drawings and quest ideas jotted on a notepad. That's when the game was hardcore, unlike today, where these n00bs benefit from Blizzard's "casual friendly" experience. Back then, we used to have to grind through countless sheets of college rule and RNG was only a dice roll away.
Well, I decided to pretend that none of that ever happened and that I was just another casual in today's gaming industry trying to mooch a G. Let's see how I did..
The Weekly Marmot - Cataclysm Zone & Quest Design
2010/07/06 at 6:27 PM
This week, I get entirely too excited about how incredibly awesome questing is in the expansion. No longer will leveling from 1-60 just be the part of the game you try to breeze through as quickly as possible so you can get into the "more interesting" quests. Don't believe me? Watch this.
Also, my wedding ring fell off in a lake.
