ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? BULLSHIT! ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT!
[End Lewis Black Mode]

Giving Paladins to the Horde and Shamans to the Alliance is quite possibly the worst idea Blizzard has ever had.

I've been so very supportive of them over the years. I shrugged and waited while Shamans got our review pushed further and further back, and once it finally came (and was shit), I just smirked and hoped they would eventually do something FOR us.

But this is a goddamned insult. And there's not a thing we can do about it. Unless Shamans get a drastic REVAMP (not just the fixes we need right now), we're in for some very hard times.

AAAAUUUGHHH!!!

I finally completed this site. I haven't worked on it (besides adding posts) for about half a year, but today I got the last 10% done. It was basically just some spacing/sizing issues, fixing fonts, and that sort of thing. And I hadn't even touched the Comment pages. But it all looks pretty good now.

About the only thing you'll probably notice is a slightly cleaner look to everything. It's much more solid now. Well, maybe it's just something that web designers would notice. Not that this site is really spectacular design or anything...

Ah nuts to that, I'm just going to close this post before I dig myself into a deeper hole.

About a week ago, a member of Convergence (the guild I'm in) announced that he'd have to take some time off for some sort of military issue. Another member remarked, "I hope they realize that now when the Scourge invade the US we will be woefully unprepared."

And I couldn't resist throwing this together:


I like how I was able to make it look like I had photographed it straight off an old TV.

Slightly off-topic, but whatever.

This is a fascinating site with tons of info and screenshots detailing the development process of Starcraft. It's pretty cool to see how the game comes together in the various different versions. I had no idea that it was originally created with the Warcraft 2 graphics engine.

Did you know that the Zerg were originally known as the Nightmarish Invaders? Yeesh! Some other interesting stuff: Valkyries were originally going to be in the original game, but were pushed to the expansion. Drones and SCVs could fly. Firebats could start forest fires. Each Zerg building had its own set of larvae.

So, I was going through the model files from the game a few days ago, and came across the model for the Fleshbeast. It's not textured, not animated, but it's looking pretty interesting so far. You can check out the concept art and bio here. Posted by Picasa

This is pretty cool. It's a research paper called "'Alone Together?' Exploring the Social Dynamics of Massively Multiplayer Online Games". There's a lot of neat info, as well as some very interesting graphs of data that I haven't encountered before.

Oh, and I'm still unable to play. I'll be returning to the game soon though. Hopefully in the next couple weeks.
