Torture, Judgement, and Small Fluffy Animals

Yep, we’re running the gamut today – although even the small fluffy animals post has a thread of serious debate running through it…

  • Stormy at Scribblings on the Asylum Wall is really not impressed with MoP’s Pet Battles, and wants to know exactly what they think they’re playing at“There is no intervention from the player at all. Once you’ve picked another pet to battle, it literally becomes you watching what amounts to a video of your pet killing the other pet.”
  • MMO Gamer Chick wonders if she did The Secret World a disservice by judging it on its beta“You could say that I too judged TSW a tad too early, specifically the combat which I initially described from my brief beta experience as clunky and unintuitive.”
  • And Big Bear Butt writes a column I whole-heartedly agree on, talking about the massive missed opportunity that was Wrath of The Lich King’s “Art Of Persuasion” torture quest“Take your neural needler, shove it up your ass, because maybe it’s time you asked yourselves some pointed questions about how committed you are to the intent behind your rules and not just the letter of the law.”

What do you think of the whole “Pet Battles” thing?
