Every Thursday I post a handful of links to articles written within the past week that are worth reading.
True Love Between Gamers: I do take this rotting corpse as my husband, Lisa Poisso, WoW Insider, 6/21/12.
Lisa recounts some stories of love blooming over World of Warcraft.
Cross-realm play and the rise of the funsucker, Robin Torres, WoW Insider, 6/24/12.
Robin considers the fact that there will now be no accountability out in the world while leveling once zones go cross-realm.
Know Your Lore: What exactly is up with women in Warcraft lore?, Anne Stickney, WoW Insider, 6/24/12.
Last week, Blessing of Kings discussed what message developers are sending by objectifying women in their games. This week, Anne at WoW Insider looks at women characters in Warcraft.
Idea: Release Mists with No Raids?, Matticus, World of Matticus, 6/25/12.
Matticus explores the idea of opening up raids after week 2 of Pandaria’s release. He believes this would level the playing field a bit between people who rush and people who don’t. It’s an interesting idea that I really like. On a personal note, two weeks would definitely not do it for me. WoW is one interest among many. Some days I spend my free time doing things other than playing video games, and when I do play video games, WoW is just one of them.
WoW Moviewatch: Orc vs. Wild: Interactive Adventure, Michael Gray, WoW Insider, 6/14/12.
Michael shares this great choose-your-own-adventure YouTube video.
Mists of Pandaria: (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻, Dawn Moore, WoW Insider, 6/21/12.
(Dawn, you’re my favorite WoW Insider writer, but that title was annoying!) New to the beta is a flippable table! yes!
Mists of Pandaria: Gold sink mounts will be account-wide, Robin Torres, WoW Insider, 6/25/12.
Blizzard has gone back on their previous decision. Gold sink mounts will now be account-wide.
