ZAM opens GuildFans.com
2010/11/17 at 6:02 PM
Once again I am breaking the unspoken "Never post about any games that are not WoW" rule, but the guys over at ZAM asked me to mention this and they have some pretty impressive content going up over there.
ZAM has just rolled out
, a new website dedicated to Guild Wars 2. The crew maintaining the site is actually made up of some faces you may recognize—specifically
Jeahr, Inde and Kattar
, the old admins from Guild Wars Guru and GW2 Guru. ZAM's really lucky to get them, they run a tight ship.
There's also a bunch of really cool content up there, including a
that's actually being judged by the GW2 design team, and and
with one of the lead designers.
If GW2 isn't your thing, no harm done—but if it is, this is something I'd keep an eye on.
Legendary - The WoW Video Podcast - A40 Headset Giveaway
2010/11/11 at 7:26 PM
Dudes.. In the second episode of Legendary, we gave away a
WoW Sound Blaster headset
. This week, we got hooked up by ZAM and Astro Gaming to give away an
Official MLG A40 Headset ($199)
. If that isn't enough to get you to watch, then you should at least watch it for the hair.. and WoW news etc.
In related news, we just finished testing the mobile video rig that I'll be using when I head down to Gamestop, San Francisco, for the Cataclysm release party. It works considerably better than we thought it would, and I'm hoping to get k3nz0r to come along to play April O'neil for me. I'll have more info on that soon™

2010/11/11 at 12:47 PM
Following up on last week's Alliance starting zone review, I have a shiny new BFF Report FOR THE HORDE (cwutidid?). In this episode, we get the inside scoop on each race, some funky beta bugs and the best FREE companion pet.. Darnell.
I'm happy to report that last week's episode on the Alliance zones broke a record in views for the BFF Report. Thanks everyone for watching!
...now lets see if the Horde episode can beat the Alliance record..hehe ;)
BFF Report - Get You Some Cata Starting Zone Action
2010/11/04 at 7:41 PM
I know you guys have questions concerning Cataclysm...
Should I server first something?
Should I farm up some herbs and dominate the AH?
Do I like cookies?
Should I reroll?
These are all very important, and in some cases, life changing questions. The answers to these are:
No, unless you're doing the digital download, have it preloaded and have lots of Bawls.
Yes, but herbs may not be the way to go...
Hell yes you like cookies! As a matter of fact, you like oatmeal cookies. What's this? You don't? WELL YOU DO NOW.
This is a tough one, because unlike the above, I can't make this decision for you.
That's why I'm putting in the time to get you through the
first hour or so of gameplay
for each race and condensing it down to an easily digestible
8 minutes and 42 seconds
Starting with the Alliance...

BFF Report - Yes, More Completely Necessary 4.0.1 Coverage
2010/10/14 at 3:50 PM
We haven't crammed your feeds with enough 4.0.1 coverage, right? Hopefully, my short and concise to-do list fits the void that all of you have within.. you know, that space that yearns for more chinhawk. ;)
So what's the plan for the next several weeks?

BFF Report - Warhammer Online Is The Next WoW Killer... Oh Wait..
2010/09/30 at 8:59 PM
We hear this from time to time about whatever various games are coming out, but nothing compared to when Warhammer and AoC were announced. For those that were around, it was a mad frenzy of long time tabletop Warhammer players that were on a hate spree in the forums. Now that the game is offering their 'Endless Free Trial', which allows players to experience some of the games features and level to Rank 10, I decided to give it a shot and see just how awesomazing this game was.
For those that don't know, WoW has managed to withstand the 'brutal loss' of its many subscribers to these various 'killers'. For the most part, I think we all agree that the only think that will bring down the game will be Blizzard themselves, or time. Besides those two factors, what single event/game/occurance, do
think will have the largest impact on the population? No, 2012 is not an answer.
FFXIV ZAM Site Gets A New Look (From Us, Kind Of)
2010/09/29 at 6:44 PM
I know that roughly 80% of you have no interest in
Final Fantasy XIV
, but since we were involved in this a bit I thought we'd take a moment to mention it.
Our design guys have been working with the team over at
to make some adjustments to the layout and design of their Final Fantasy XIV site! Between us we've tweaked the menu system, the display for advanced filters, the listviews, the news story display, and more!
If you're interested in poking around, here's the rundown:
Remember, if you want to search using the Wowhead-style homepage, just go to
Final Fantasy XIV, and I Didn't Even Have to Mention the Lack of Jump
2010/09/21 at 5:32 PM
I think I have just finished probably one the most controversial MMOs in recent history. You either hate this game or you love it, there is virtually no middle ground here. Also, their fans are not afraid to speak out against the "WoW Fanboys" citing the repeating caves as their sole defense for massive chunks of repeating terrain in the game's open world. There is no doubt that regardless of what anyone says, Final Fantasy XIV is going to be successful. Which is totally fine, but that certainly doesn't give it immunity from a BFF Report style ribbing.
WoW is always the game that defending fans of other titles associate their opposition with, what do you guys think of that? Especially after seeing this episode, do you think that WoW compares/is better/is dated?
Hit me up on
and let me know what you think. I'm out on vacation celebrating my annual old day. WOOOO!
One Rick to Roll Them All (aka BFF Report - LotRO)
2010/09/14 at 7:16 PM
I know what you're thinking, "Where the #@$% is my Final Fantasy XIV BFF Report?!" Unfortunately, there has been another delay in our age
and it will come out SOON. That's not to take away from Lord of the Rings Online, though. It recently went F2P and I wanted to get in there and see just how much crap I could find under it's protective Cloak of Tolkiencibility. I'm also dropping it early because next Tuesday is going to be FFXIV BFFR DDAY.
Mark your calendars. >:D
Wowhead for FFXIV!
2010/09/09 at 7:49 PM
As we mentioned in a
, ZAM has launched their database for Final Fantasy XIV. As of today, though, they've taken a page from our playbook, and opened up a brand new front page!
Obviously only the FFXIV players are going to bother to use it, but for those who are looking for the Wowhead of FFXIV, now you guys have options. :D
Go check out the new design at the new URL!
