Comment Re: Curse(d) (Score 1) 25

I quit when pandas started roaming Azeroth. What was Bliz even thinking?

But after that I went to a private server to try older expansions and it was a lot of fun at first but the experience became altogether corrosive.

These days I really enjoy Path of Exile, but it would have no use for Curse apart from the wiki for reading content about the game.

Having a company thrive from curating game information frees up game developers to put their time in the game itself and leave the understanding of mechanics to a third party.

This is a double edged sword I think. It would be better for games companies to do it themselves, however the promotion of the game then also gets spearheaded by the third parties to drive their interests further.

If you use a game that has a lot of mods like World of Warcraft, Curse updates your mods when they release new patches and it's a pretty big hassle. However, if you run backdated mods then you can't necessarily configure Curse not to overwrite your old folders. It would have been pretty easy to write an ignore folder feature but Curse refused to bother when I was using it a long time ago.

Other than that, you pay a premium to have a nice forum avatar from what I can tell.

We have a lot of rabbits living around our neighborhood that have destroyed many trees and gardens.

They would probably chew this robot and attack the garden daily unless..... I wonder if the company will create a defensive mode for this? Strobe lights and water or air gun could blast animals breaking the perimeter?

Garibaldi was awesomely acted by Doyle and he will be missed. RIP. Too young to die at age 60.

Time to binge B5 for my respects. I would love to see a prequel called "B4", mostly because I like puns. Any remake would be able to examine closely the tropes of POV and "anyone can die" as they reimagine the series as a space epic. Game of Thrones in space is something that could potentially get a huge audience and would definitely be welcomed by all.
