BFF Report - RIFT - It Has PvP.. Just like WoW!!
2011/01/28 at 1:20 PM
If you've ever been in an MMO beta, you know that everyone in it is terrible at PvP. It's not that the terrible players from current games are looking for a new MMO (although it seems like it at times), it's that players are simply testing out different facets of gameplay.
"Oh look, I can kill people!"
*holds S until passes out*
It's the equivalent of someone grabbing the flag, running out the tunnel, making a 90 degree left and going right up the ramp. THIS IS EVERY GAME IVE PLAYED.
So, consider this a PSA for
who are looking into getting into RIFT..

BFF Report - DCUO (part 2)
2011/01/20 at 2:29 PM
So many hoops have been jumped through to make this episode happen, but it was well worth it. Admittedly, superhero games are not very appealing to me, but I do love playing vicariously through the eyes of some rather iconic hero figures: Gizmo Duck, Commander Planet, Black Dyna..wait, what??
BFF Report - RIFT!

RIFT RIFT RIFT OMG RIFT OMGGGGGFFFUUUUUUUU-
That's pretty much been all I've been hearing these past couple of months. So, of course, I had to try it for myself...
This week's episode covers more of the general functions and mechanics of the game as I was playing through beta 3 & 4, and I try to do a bit of comparing against some
more popular MMOs...
So.. ARE YOU TOTALLY RIFTING BROz? Or do you think this game won't be able to live up to the hype (inb4 'nvr herd of riftLOL')?
BFF Report - DC Universe Online
2011/01/07 at 1:34 PM
I got to play this game back at E3, and the PVP was ssiiickkk. It felt like playing Unreal Tournament (and for good reasons), but with superhero capabilities. Unfortunately, due to some weird beta quirks, I wasn't able to get involved in the gameplay aspects of the game.
The good news: John Smedley, CEO of Sony Online Entertainment, watched the show and wants to hook me up with some gametime when it goes live since beta go rough towards the end there (as they tend to do). Next week I'm going to be covering RIFT (which Im
live streaming today
from 10-4pm PST), but after that I'm open to suggestions.. Would you guys be interested in a follow up episode to cover gameplay mechanics and pvp in DCUO?
Legendary - The WoW Video Podcast - LOLbarad
2011/01/05 at 5:11 PM
No, seriously.. lawl@this entire fiasco over the holidays with Tol Barad. On top of that we've also been slipped a small tidbit of exclusive TITAN information that may require aluminium foil headwear, and then there's this "issue" with heroics being too hard?? Good lawd.
Two big things in the episode..
1. What kind of changes would
recommend for Tol Barad?
C. Are heroics really
BFF Report - Top 5 Most Controversial Games of 2010
2010/12/30 at 3:09 PM
While you guys were out having a good time with the Loot King, I was running all over the MMO-verse keeping up with the latest it had to offer. By proxy, I was also absorbing all the crazy crap that some of these developers do and figured it would be fitting to package it all up nicely into one big fat.. er.. fony report.
p.s. A message from Darnell
regarding Tol Barad
.. he doesn't sound too happy.

Thottbot Merged with Wowhead Framework
2010/11/30 at 3:12 PM
We just received this announcement from ZAM and I wanted to pass it along to you guys since some of you are probably wondering about Thottbot's future.
In a review of our World of Warcraft community sites,
has decided to make some changes to the
Wowhead will remain unaffected
, Thottbot will be sharing some of the Wowhead technology platform. A key goal was to improve the data available to the Thottbot community while retaining the Thottbot styling, navigation and community.
The following changes will occur to
Thottbot will load its database information from Wowhead's database.
Thottbot will load its comment, screenshot, and video information from Wowhead's database.
Thottbot's blogs and forum have been closed. We will be setting up a Thottbot-specific forum on Wowhead for discussion specific to that site.
Thottbot user accounts are being deactivated. Unfortunately most of the accounts on Thottbot had no email addresses associated with them and Wowhead's technology requires an email address to register an account.
