    It's a small, small, world (of warcraft)

    So, tell me true...
    .. is WoW any fun if you don't plan on living there?
    Is there such a beast as a casual WoW player?

    Just curious, I've got a demo for the mac, and I'd wouldn't mind seeing what the fuss is about.

    Once you start casual, you'll probably go hardcore.

    Oh, and I recorded that whole thing. Those NPC's respawn too fast [​IMG]

    Oh, if you meet me and you're horde(and under lvl 48) beware [​IMG]

    Look at the crit [​IMG]

    edit: @ Mthrnite: Sure, the game is fun in the lower levels, and can be played each day for an hour, but for higher levels (45-70) you'll need about an hour or two to run the dungeons.

    And if you do start playing, play alliance on Anvilmar. That's where all the cool kids play [​IMG]

    Dungeons, eh? Like, cool, puzzle solving dungeons ala OoT & TP or run-and-gun, err, run-and-cast-magical-spells-of-magic dungeons?

    There's puzzle solving, but strategic fighting is a big role. Running in and just trying to kill everything will give you "You have died. Return to the graveyard?" screen pretty fast.

    Oh, and all dungeons are multiman.

    Do people really sell their characters for a lot of (real life) money when they don't feel like playing it anymore?

    Yeah, although if you're caught, you can say bye-bye to your account.

    Ouch, and I mean, seeing how much people love this game and all, wouldn't you personally have a greater sense of accomplishment and self-satisfaction by doing it the hard way? If you can't be happy from that then at least keep your wallet feeling happy, hmm?

    I guess it's the same kind of people that use cheat codes in games, or (speaking of wallets) buy the Gameshark or Codebreaker or something, so they wouldn't have to go through the tedious business of "playing" the game [​IMG]


    EDIT: A thought:
    Animal Crossing: Wild world sold in over 5 million copies worldwide, making it one of the most massive MMORPGs in the world (technically, it is a MORPG).

    A DS game [​IMG] .

    Am I the only one who's amazed by that?

    It's not a MMORPG by any sensible definition. It's not even really an RPG... It's not a MMOG either. No massive multiplaying to be found anywhere. It IS a MOG which would just mean multiplayer online game. [​IMG] It's also not amazing.

    Ive got a bad experience with this game..
    Here in the dorms, the neighbor next to me plays wow ALL DAY. Literally. When I wake up, hes playing wow (i never see him go to class [​IMG] maybe he goes at the same time as me) when I go to sleep, hes playing wow. Ive only seen him get out of the room for food, and restroom. We were all amazed when he came over to my room and asked if we had any thumb tacks. It takes over lives [​IMG]

    Scary [​IMG]

    puzzle solving? World of Warcraft doesnt have puzzle solving... just hack and slash, with quests.... LOTS OF THEM.

    Its more like a game to be with friends and stuff, i'm a casual player, i play sometimes not always, not everyday, when i have the time i play (although paying hurts, but whatever its just 12.99€ per month)
