It’s All About the Pets

May 2, 2007

When I was in San Francisco weekend before last, I had some time to watch my friend play his warlock. I was surprised at the bond he had developed with his voidwalker. It wasn’t a deep emotional bond — this is a manly hard-core gamer, after all — but he spoke to it often, encouraging it in fights and chiding it when it (he) did something stupid. He also told me that he really wishes he could name it, like we do with hunter pets. The game may imply that he is summoning a new demon each time he gets the previous one killed, but to him it’s a continuous personality.



Testing Woes

May 1, 2007

I updated the site last night with the info about the Skettis Kaliri. I also pulled all the PTR info onto it’s own page where I can manage the updates more easily. And I added some shots that show the differences in crab and lion models.


Appearance Musings

April 17, 2007

It’s going to take a little while to get the balance right on how frequently I should post here vs. what I have to say. Right now I don’t feel like I have anything substantive to discuss, especially given that I really should be hacking up the site with those new creatures. But I did implicitly promise content by starting this blog. But my local Perforce connection is down and I’m waiting for my husband to reboot the server. So it’s not like I could be working on the site anyway.

Yes, I run Perforce at home. How geeky is that? :>
