I was going to skip this quest, but the people demanded it.
People have pointed out in the comments at the Escapist that Gnolls are hyena-men, not pig-men. I had no idea. Quillboars are pig-men. Murlocs are fish-men. What are kobolds? Rat-men? Then there are those serpent / mermaid guys that hang out along the coast. Are they snake-men? Or snake-mermen? Are centaurs considered horse-men, or does something have to be bipedal before it can be considered a *-man hybrid? Tauren are clearly cow-men, but unlike other hybrids they are “human” sized. (Although, I guess it’s because cows are already pretty big.) Certainly Worgen are wolf-men, but they’re not a proper species, being the result of a curse. (Can worgen have babies? With humans? Or each other? And would the babies be humans or “pure” worgen? Actually, let’s not answer this, I don’t want to encourage the roleplayers in Goldshire.)
I’ll note that WoW doesn’t seem to have cat-people or fox-people yet, which seems like an obvious omission for a playable race. Maybe a few more spaceships will crash on Azeroth and we’ll get the full lineup of popular furry breeds.
I recently said:
Playing as Worgen Druid in #WoW. I’m a human that turns into a dog that rides a tiger and turns into a bear.
Not actually true, I haven’t scored the tiger mount yet. John Funk pointed out that it was a shame you couldn’t use Horde-side mounts, because then you could roll a roll a worgen hunter and be a wolf that rides a wolf and has a wolf companion.
They’ve recently added the archeologist profession to the game. I think they should add zoologist to the next expansion. That should keep people busy for a while.
Internet News is All Wrong
Why is internet news so bad, why do people prefer celebrity fluff, and how could it be made better?
Bethesda felt the need to jam a morality system into Fallout 3, and they blew it. Good and evil make no sense and the moral compass points sideways.
Silent Hill Turbo HD II
I was trying to make fun of how Silent Hill had lost its way but I ended up making fun of fighting games. Whatever.
Trusting the System
How do you know the rules of the game are what the game claims? More importantly, how do the DEVELOPERS know?
Another PC Golden Age?
Is it real? Is PC gaming returning to its former glory? Sort of. It's complicated.
