World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

by on

Blizzard never fails to surprise us! Kung Fu Panda appears to be Pandaren from Pandaria. He is actually a well-trained Monk, ready to cap level 90, lol. It is the first time that WoW introduces both a new race and a "you know what". Pandaren are actually faction-neutral. You choose your alignment when you reach level 10. Anyway, it is not going to be released soon, so there is plenty of time to discuss things over.


Cordially yours,

Fighting Oblivion

Lately I'm making an attempt to create the "Top 100 List". What is that supposed to mean...? I'm simply trying to recall every game I've played since 1987 and build an elite list containing the 100 best of'em. It's a tough call, though. They are too numerous so, I'm forced to leave some games behind, despite the fact it breaks my heart :cry:.


During that "painful" process, there is a major factor that cannot be overlooked. I cannot include any game that I haven't played, even if it is an absolute masterpiece and believe me there are many to fit that description. E.g., I haven't played Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid, Diablo, Knights of the Old Republic, Half-Life, Neverwinter Nights, Uncharted, Fallout and more. Most of the cool games that I haven't been introduced with are rpg titles. There is a perfect reason for that. I was always playing all kinds of games, but was never really an rpg person, until very very very recently. The first rpg title for me to discover was FFXIII. That occurred back in 2010. Then, before finishing it, I quit it to start World of Warcraft. Although WoW is different (mmo and action rpg) from the turn-based rpgs, it was in fact the game that properly introduced me to the genre, making me a fan. Now, I weep considering what I've been missing all along.


That may be the case, but I decided not to quit on me. I started my own quest (I'm my own character, lol) determined to discover most of the good rpg titles. For now, I'm just gonna finish FFXIII (I quit WoW and got De-Wowed so I'm clean). Then, in all likelihood I'm gonna go for Mass Effect 2 (or wait for 3). One thing is for sure. My list will be updated and new games will find their way in!

Star Wars: The Old Republic

by on

I have already pre-ordered the standard edition and put WoW in carbonite. I am not sure about anything though. Republic or Empire? Jedi Consular or Sith Inquisitor? Jedi Knight or Sith Warrior? I don't seem to lean towards a Trooper, but I surely fancy the Bounty Hunter. In a similar way, an Imperial Agent isn't very appealing, so it is more likely for me to end up as a Smuggler. A fair question is: "Isn't every Star Wars fan's dream to be able to hold a lightsaber?" So many choices, so little time, lol. Bioware has not made up its mind about dual specs yet, so I just have to be patient about the whole project, cause a lot of things will happen.


Useful Definitions:

Quick Travel=Hearthstone

Flashpoint=Dungeon

PVP Warzone=Battleground

Operation=Raid
