Then buy some shares of Nintendo while it's on sale and profit if you're right: http://www.google.com/finance q PINK 3ANTDOY

Oh, come on, save the melodrama -- they're just injecting a bit of personality into their statement. Don't buy it if you don't like it a publicly traded, for-profit company does not owe you anything.

This is an interesting article, ...

This is an interesting article, but I think the take-home message here, more than anything, is that some game design principles simply don't apply very well to some genres. One could easily write a similar article about Starfox, any racing game, any rail shooter, any 1 vs. 1 fighter, etc. ...

The reaction to this is going to be fun.

Not to mention the typical DPS queue time for random dungeons last time I was subscribed was around 1 to 2 hours. That's a long time to be sitting around in a game realizing you have nothing else to do. This was largely fixed in 4.1, which offered tanks/healers additional ...

Your comment is backwards. Blizzard never stated that Cataclysm was the last expansion in fact they've repeatedly stated the exact opposite. They did, however, say that there wouldn't be WoW2, or at least no time soon.

This is a good article -- I'm glad I could be a source of inspiration for writing it I will say, however, that I respect Blizzard's goal of making raid content more accessible. My major beef with Cataclysm is that they killed this accessibility AND found a way to make ...
