Weekend Roundup: CoH, WoW, and Farmville!

And finally, WoW – and other games. Including, in possibly its first ever appearance on MMO Melting Pot, Farmville…

  • Amijade writes a great, calming guide to all the things that will probably confuse and dismay us when Mists arrives“If you thought the flooding of information about the beta was already too much to handle, or if you thought the flood of information about the last patch was a lot…sit back, hang tight and hold-on! “
  • Olivia Grace at WoW Insider looks at the massively heated argument around account-bound achievements“Perhaps modifying the titles to something along the lines of “the original Bloodthirsty” would help, so that there’s a way to discern those who really did kill 250,000 people on one character from those who didn’t.”
  • The Grumpy Elf writes a great bit of nostalgia about his first ever companion pet in WoW“I had my cat and all I could summon was my cat. Why could I not summon my owl, I wanted to go out fighting with my owl. “
  • Ironyca rounds up some of the particularly impressive Transmogrification outfits from the recent Mog Madness competition“This is not to say that these are my 12 overall favourites, it’s more an opportunity for me to throw some more praise around. I don’t think I would be able to pick my favourites anyways, there were so many really strong mogs, it would be too hard!”
  • Sente defends NCSoft, the publishers and cancellers of City Of Heroes, who have taken a fair amount of flak lately“I do not see NCSoft as an evil company that cares nothing for its customers/players nor will I boycott everything that has NCSoft attached to it.”
  • And Pete at Dragonchasers takes a look at the sequel to a classic MMO that looks likely to take the market by storm. No, not Guild Wars 2. Farmville 2“If you add friends to your farm neighborhood, once a day they’ll show up at your farm and you can use them to finish some task. This is a great way to get long-duration crops quickly since your friend insta-harvests whatever you point them at. I was actually having fun playing Farmville 2 until I learned about milk bottles.”

Hope you had a great weekend!
