    Some new character transfer options are available to WoW players on 3 popular servers. My dwarven hunter found himself squashed in a battleground area by a horde of tauren that chose this as their battle chant:

    "High Pop Realms (Origin) -> Low Pop Realms (Destination)

    Blackrock (PvP) -> Bloodscalp (PvP)

    Deathwing (PvP) -> Stormscale (PvP)

    Icecrown (PvE) -> Azjol-Nerub (PvE)"

  • PSP Emulation for WoW Has to Wait, Literally
    Portable VNP is a little app which allows you to remotely use your desktop Macintosh on your PlayStation Portable (PSP). PSP + VNP + WoW = it was inevitable someone would try! Gameplay was, however, sluggish...

    "It is way too slow at about 1 - 1/2 fps. You really can't do anything."

  • Ha! Check out the URL that you go to for this...they spelled Rogue as "Rouge". Priceless.
    Ogaming has posted a World of Warcraft Rogue guide. They sold you some gold and then they wrote this:

    "Rogues are damage-dealers, and that is their group role. You are in a group solely to take down single mobs and provide some limited crowd control (as well as pick locked chests and boxes). Rogues have the fastest (and arguably the most exciting) combat pace the game has to offer. Rogues attack the fastest because they are dual wielders and always use fast-swinging weapons (1-handed swords and maces and daggers). Rogues have to be versatile, patient and very articulate."

  • New EVE content is around the next moon.
    EVE Online promises some large scale changes in their patch notes. Madonna still shows no interest in commenting on reports her religious
    beliefs draw heavily from the following texts:

    "The summer solstice fast approaches, and its arrival means that the long, hard Arctic winter is about to enter its slumber. Cold as it was, we worked feverishly on projects so secret that not even their names have been whispered in public - Until now!
    So get ready for a new content patch, a new type of EVE updates from CCP that is much larger in scope than a regular patch and yet smaller than a full expansion. It is our great pleasure to introduce to you the Cold War Edition."
