Last Week… WoW : Burning Crusade

WoW was dull and boring, nothing much to do unless you were a raiding nut... the community was spread out and boring, most things were mundane... only fun thing was making a new character...

THEN BAM...

Burning Crusade appeared...

To be fair this is awesome, I mean i haven't really done anything but run round doing quests, but this new expansion has breathed soooo much life back into the game... There are now LOTS of people leveling together, groups of people PvPing randomly round the world, crazy quests, awesome world PvP objectives, new factions...

The new instances are fairly cool too, they require tactics like the 40 man instances although you can do them with 5 people, you dont need to recruit everyone under the sun to have a happy time in instances.

Well ive been playing since 1 day after the expansion was released, this was when my hols from work started, and i managed to get to level 66 yesterday...

Back to work now, we also made some crazy wrap things the other day which i will post up later, they dont look as grotesque as some of the other foods ive put up on here before.

Baptastic + WoW Expansion

Well this week started with the amazing breakfast baguette when our own JF came round to visit us... i couldn't manage a whole one but Jode and JF seemed to polish it off...

Then early on in the week my body decided after 5 years of not being sick due to illness it thought, hey lets just hurl for a laugh... So i had to work from home for a day while i recovered...

Then when i got back to work i was greeted by the worst looking sick in a bap ever, it looked like it had been shot with a shotgun or something, then ruffed up a bit for laughs.

After that baptastic part of the week i managed to play a bit of Eve online on the free trial, i quite liked it however it seemed a bit complex for my tiny mind and i wanted to PvP but apparently im looking at 6 months + playtime to even start that.. which isnt bad.. but also isnt too good when your on a trial.

Also the WoW expansion is apparently out next week so a few of us are off work for a couple of days to have a gaming session on it while its still fun...

Also done a few updates to the Wii Online Alerter, which you can see in the previous posts comments... Alot of other people are making similar scripts at the moment, although they seem to put images and other useless stuff on the page which will just use up all their bandwidth if they have it refreshing constantly :(

I think the Wii shortage is gonna stop soon anyway, but glad to hear that alot of people have been able to get their hands on one now, Jode has ordered Warioware so that should be here this wiikend to play on!

Blizzards Revenge… and other crap

OK... so i had like 4 day off work, due to me accruing loads and not spending them, so i though i would spend most of it PvPing on WoW with Jode to get some decent gear...

Everything was going well, the 12-15 hour grinds were paying off, after 2.5 days i was able to get 2 cheap epic items (boots, shoulders). Then i thought, ok i will save up now for my mageblade thingy...

That night PvPing away Jode mentioned the 30% honour reduction, and i almost cancelled my account there and then. Took a minute to think about it and then realised that i couldnt find an official blizzard post about this... so just hoped that Jode was spouting crap.

Unfortunatly he was right and the next day i was getting 30% less honour, so after the fun few days i had PvPing im back to disliking WoW...

Still not got a Wii, although rumour has it that some places may be getting some in, so i will have to go and grab one from there soon...

OH! and Sony in their AWESOMENESS tried to pull a bullshit ad scam thing where they got this company to set up a crappy blog and pretend the PSP was worth owning...

I own a PSP and have done for about a year now... and ever since then i was thinking WTF was i thinking, Metal Gear Ac!d was fun for a while when i was sending waves of Shagohods against Jode... I was a tad gutted when i realised SFA 3 was just network play and not online... and since then i havent bought any games on it...

WHY? you may ask...

Its a bag of crap... There are like 3 good games on it, and those games are not amazing, they are just slightly more entertaining than the other crap they are trying to sell on it. Only DECENT thing about it is that you can play PSX games on it given the new update, although you NEED a PS3 for that... WHAT USE IS THAT?

Also forgot to mention that you have to PAY to get the games you already own on there, bollocks to that... I mean i can understand Sony making people pay or at least having some system so you can only download the games you already own, but the way they are doing it is soooo sketchy...

Anyway back in work now after a good 5-6 days off, so i better get on with some work...

Patchey Patches

Well looks like Blizzard finally gave us the patch, although the servers were pretty much down all day and when up they were VERY sketchy.

I can sympathise with them, as after working in the IT industry for a while you understand how much pressure is on when major updates to software happens...

Anyway finally managed to respec a bit yesterday, and killed a 47 warlock on my 48 rogue (i wasnt stealthed, i had no poisens, standard buffs - although i did have onyxia buff). I saw them, thought i would leave them, then BAM curse of agony. CHEEKY BASTARD... Sprinted up and whacked on blade flurry and slice and dice and minced up her and her succubuss. With about 10% hp left, bandaged and saw her pop up again with her damn soul stones... a few stuns and she was back on the floor...

Not much else to say really, ive been spending most of my time working on re-doing alot of the backend for Phpmorpg...

OH also found the best site ever,

kitten tastic!

WoW Patch 2.0.1

Well after quitting WoW, ive been thinking alot about other MMOs and realised there is nothing worthwhile coming out anytime soon.

Then i looked at the new patch notes for WoW and realised that it may acctually become fairly entertaining playing the game again. For 1 there will be no DKs, i know this is a double edged sword and lots of newbies will lose their lives in secure areas, however this will make world PvP come alive again!

Also there will be arena PvP, and honour currency put in so its no longer a case of fighting aimlessly for no particular point. There is now a reason to PvP as the gear seems decent enough. Im hoping to group up with a few old friends and reign hell down on alot of horde players...

Still not 100% sure if im gonna go back, but i figure a month with the new patch will let me see if i want to play again!

Guild Wars ++

Well since me getting guild wars ive been playing that most of the time. Im almost level 20 on it, but i get my ass handed to me by the ub3r l33t people in the PVP arenas..
Anyway i just did some simple site updates, im not sure if i can be arsed adding comments... would be fun to see some people come on and go OMG OWNED...
We also played C&C Generals this weekend, omg it was soooo pants my units were about as intelligent as a potato. They thought the best course of action when under attack was to let the first 3 units attack back, then when they died... bring 3 more units up front... its like the kung fu movies where its like THE WORLD vs 1 Man.. yet the world sends one man in at a time to get their asses kicked... managed to pull back a win tho... gonna go make some bling... Roger Roger... erm... Out
