Why do people think they need to upgrade their video cards every time a new one comes out?

Because fun

Useless expensive fun?

So let's say I buy this expansion and boost my Warlock to 90. (I left him in the middle of the Lich King land about level 70 or something, don't remember).

Do I all of a sudden get a new quest story arc? or do I just wonder around lost trying to find max level quests?

If you boost it now the game puts you in the TImeless Isle when you hit the expansion I am sure you will get the auto quest that starts the expansion.

I am know I am one of the few that play WoW on these boards, but my wife and I will be buying it day 1.

Thanks Arthas.

Is there any type of story quests on the Timeless Isle?

I like to follow a story in MMOs, not into PvP or Raiding etc.

if i've got a gtx 780 would any 800 series card really be worth the upgrade?

No.

There are gamers out there still playing on the 500 series and running most games on high>max.

Hey guys, wondering if you can give me a few suggestions.

I've been making some videos of my wife's concerts and other work related stuff for her for a while but now she wants to start doing video tutorials and the like so I was wondering if you guys can help me choosing a good video editing software, since using Movie Maker just won't cut it =p

Preferably something that I won't have to spend 3 months learning how to use but that doesn't make simple things like syncing video and sound, simple cut editing and picture on video (or video on video) a headache.

It doesn't have to be free, although it's ok if it is, as long as it's good.

Thanks in advance guys =)

I've used all these and can give you a quick rundown:

- Adobe Premiere: the best with the most features, but the hardest to learn and the most expensive.

- Sony Vegas: nearly as good as Premier, but still expensive and a learning curve.

- Nero Video: easy to use, cheap and plenty of features.

- Windows Movie Maker: FREE, easy to use and similar to Nero Video but with a bit less features.

All depends what you want to do with the video. If it's just simple cut and paste with captions and animations, go Movie Maker.

Lets see here

  1. For a large portion of the game, each race had only one Face with different textures, I havent seen the new ones yet, but I wouldnt be surprised if those were just rushed out to meet with consumer demand
  2. Subscription Costs rise
  3. Cash Shop on a sub fee game with grossly overpriced items
  4. Garrisons are tacked on and nowhere near as good as advertised, serving as little more than an instanced daily hub
  5. Each class has roughly 8 active skills to manage. Warriors and Deathknights in particular were cannibalized.
  6. The new expansion seems to do nothing to fix issues with the current talent system.
  7. Only 2 raiding tiers throughout the entire expansion pack, if rumors are to be believed, and the person interviewed was correct.
  8. The Legendary item will be a ring... an item you cant even show off.
  9. WoW is at a decline
  10. Not every model will be updated at launch, causing model quality inconsistancy which has cause a really ugly effect on visuals. Just look at Gran Turismo 5.
  11. The fact that the updated models seem to be the main selling point is another issue in itself.
  12. No new mounts you can earn ingame according to a tweet from Blizzard, but plenty of new cash shop mounts
  13. Blizzard's talent is leaving, resulting in a game left to the hands of the weaker members
  14. The dungeons I have seen thus far are incredibly short, and overall lacking in content.
  15. Speaking of dungeons, only 6 at launch.
  16. Speaking of a lack of content, one zone will be postponed, that being Plains of Farahlon (Netherstorm).
  17. If the trailer is anything to go by, the writing is worse than ever.
  18. Certain characters will be terribly handled, I would say what, but this site wont let me use spoiler tags for some reason.

I think my answer is obvious. No, not even going f2p would make me return to WoW now.

And yet people still play it and claim it's the best MMO on the market. Some things never cease to amaze me.

I showed my wife all the missing features from Sims 3 (up to 78 currently I think), and she decided just to buy a few more Sims 3 expansions and stick with that.

Funny, we did a dollar to dollar comparison. For the price of Sims 4 (game only) with all these missing features, she can get Sims 3 + 5 expansions at the same price on Origin.

You did the right thing. Not only did you get a much better game, but instead of just making statements, you showed her evidence to back said statements up. Kudos on that, kudos. Which expansions did she get?

Edit: As you see, If you wait a short while, you can pick up Sims expansions for dirt cheap. Since those things drop in price fast rather than doing the contrary and anything you cant pick up for roughly 10 dollars, will drop down to that price soon enough.

She hasn't purchased them yet but she is getting (on the weekend) the PETS and UNIVERSITY expansion.

I said to her that a year or so down the track, do the same thing with Sims 4 (if it's really worth it).

Not as much as 75%, but here wait a few months and they come down in price. Except probably COD.

CoD games drop in price almost as fast as Sims expansions here. In fact, you can get the latest installment for only 10 dollars. In here, everything goes roughly 50% off after a few months (unless it has Bethesda, Blizzard or Nintendo written on the box). Which is a lot less than Sims expansions drop in price, which, like I said, drop down in price rapidly. You should give it a shot and see if the same applies for Sims expansions where you live.

It's a wonder the haven't tried to do a full blown Sims MMO again. With today's technology and a good team behind it, it could be great. Have your Sim live in a persistent world and the expansion would be your Sim traveling to other countries.

Like the others said, this was indeed an attempt at a pseudo MMO. But Sim City happened and the game was scrapped. This game is the devs trying to salvage those scraps and the lack of features is the result of this. Besides, a Sims MMO would be really hard to design, and thus like you said need a good team. Which is currently out of reach for EA. A sims MMO would not have a skip forward option for obvious reasons, and the sims is practically designed around the skip forward function being used at certain pars of the game, such as when your sims go to sleep or when they go to work/school.
