  • What Does it Take to Impress a Messiah?

    Having had a chance to play 2.3 last night on his guild's Karazhan night, our WoW community manager, Byron "Messiah" Mudry, wanted to throw up a quick first impressions comment from a Paladin tank's perspective.

    I know most of the changes have nothing to do with a Paladin and even those that do are mainly focused on the Retribution Paladin tree. However, some things did effect my tankadin directly and other not so directly that I wanted to comment on.

    In addition to game sales rising 19% last quarter for Vivendi, Gamasutra just announced that World of Warcraft has hit the 9.3 million player mark. It's like an unstoppable force of nature.

  • China just got some good old American competition.

    The N.C. State student newspaper is reporting on a local business that has set up shop near their campus.

It's amusing that almost every student quoted in the story thinks it's a silly business.
