I've played it up to the civilization phase. It's cool what they've done, but I enjoyed it much more when my critter was an evolving animal than a sentient being. Of course, things may pick up later on. Part of my problem is that I was a ruthless carnivore, which worked great until I was civilized. Then all the other nations treated me like, I don't know, a ruthless carnivore. I didn't last long.

What a journey.
My Mac Mini has issues displaying all elements. It looks like an advanced Bugdom.

Any sporkers bothered with the WOTLK upgrade?

Oh, yeah, got my troll shaman to 80 already. Death Knight is 73, got a couple of others to 71. Fun to see new content after so long, but not revolutionary.

Good God, you work quick.

I still have only done about half of outlands. Heaps left to do/see/go.

>Death Knight is 73

Seen a lot of people convert to Death Knights. Maybe it's the rush of people who don't quite know what to do with their fancy "new" character, but if I see a death Knight under lvl 75 in a pvp instance, I'm all over them like a fly on shite...

Maybe that'll change - However I'm also enjoying the whole "ret pallies no longer suck at pvp" changes that came through with the 3.0 patch. And as mentioned previously, with a decent graphics card I no longer just own the graveyard...

The only problem is I made it to lvl 70 about two weeks before the new upgrade, and already there's this "omg, you're all just 70s" attitude in battlegrounds, which is a bit harsh, IMO... (I just want to get my gear)

Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlige klær!
My new addiction is "Mob Wars" on Facebook. It reminds me of the old dialup BBS games.

Yesterday some guy decided to keep attacking me. He was strong enough to win most of the fights which would earn him money each time but not enough to really make a big dent in my cash. I would retaliate by putting him on the hitlist. The bounty was much, much more than what I was losing to his attacks but it was kind of a fun little pissing match. I'd hitlist him which guarantees he'll be dead within seconds as thousands of players clamor for the bounty.

Over the course of the evening last night, I earned a LOT more money and quadrupled the size of my mob and their armaments. This morning, he started his attacks again with a much different result. He eventually sent me the following message:


hey.. u increased ur mobsize overnight, raised ur levels.. impressing.
but i can still fuck u.. eheheh

Nevermind the fact that this message reads like a bad spam email (Increase your mobsize overnight with our herbal viagra!), he obviously didn't get the hint. He kept trying and, through his repeated failures, actually HELPED me jump two levels. Then he sent this:


i don t think u have the health and the stamina for intense fighting.. anyway lets stop this nosens ! who started it anyway ?

He was wrong. I had enough cash to keep my "Boss" healthy and I have friends whose in-game wealth is astronomical so I had them repeatedly hit-listing him, too. I was bored, though, so I just ended up inviting him to join my mob (which means we're unable to attack each other anymore). Ahh, such juvenile fun.

Nifty advertisement on games.yahoo.com by Apple:

Good to see that the game aspect of the iPhone/iPod touch is emphasised now.

have seen that on tv a lot, but the added jiggling of the page elements is very cool (look for it to become the most annoying, overdone thing soon). how do they do it?

Does it run on the Nintendo DS? Or the PSP?

(I sincerely don't know as I hardly play any games apart from some tiny ones on the Treo to kill waiting time)
