actually Pandas were a race in Warcraft 3 back in 2002 and the game was in development way before that. When did Kung Fu Panda come out? 2008.


Panda Khan first appeared in 1985

Ummm, wrong.

But even if you were right, cow men, the other cow men, the bison version of cow men, the yak version, bear men, some other bear men, green tusked men, green and blue big tusked men with rasta accents, fish men, space goat squid men, and somehow this is over the line? What's that? You just follow whatever the internet tells you to like or hate? Gotcha.

The fact that I get a twinge of social anxiety each time I click on the LFD tool, and I'm afraid to play any role except DPS, tells me that it's just not the game for me anymore.


Sadly, this is MMO's in general. Which is why I've pretty well stopped playing them--they're not fun at all, period, and I shouldn't have to farking research for two hours to play a game.

That's what WoW and Blizzard have given the MMO world: you can't be "good" unless you use the cookie cutter shiat everyone else does, and if you don't, you are automatically "not good." The attitude spills over into every. single. game. that. exists.

WoW has killed gaming - not because of the devs, not because of the game itself, but because of the community. Don't get me wrong, BronyMedic, I understand the logic of the EJ builds and the number crunching - I'm a number cruncher myself. But the idea that I have to wear the same armor with the same enchants and gems and the same exact build, casting precisely the same spells at precisely the same time as every other healer among the 10 million people playing or get screamed at and insulted (actually, I'm a damned good healer and rarely get screamed at, but I have seen it done countless times - usually right before I kicked the asshole doing it or dropped the group myself because I do NOT put up with that shiat - ever) absolutely turns me off. Those people make Fark look like a group hug. ;)

The idea of fighting pandas goes back at least as far as Panda Khan, which was a backup section in Colleen Doran's most excellent A Distant Soil, back when she could still do awesome pencils. (I'm not sure if her subsequent arthritis was actually caused by that work, but it wouldn't surprise me). I've wanted to play a kickass panda since then.

And, now that I've seen the movie, I think that MoP has much more in common with Panda Khan than with Kung Fu Panda. In fact, it has very little to do with Kung Fu Panda, aside from, y'know, having Asian-themed pandas in it (and on that basis, it has just as much in common with the Atlanta zoo). Anyone who says "omg, pandas, it must be based on that tacky panda movie!" is only showing the narrowness of their knowledge.

Yeah, I'm that kind of nerd, who remembers Panda Khan before it had its own book. :p

What I don't get is the people who seem to feel all self-important because they hate (WoW, EQ, Halo, computer games, whatever). Dudes, it's a computer game. Some people like it. Some people are ambivalent. Some people don't like it. I'm friends will all three kinds of people. None of them are any better than the others, at least not because of what kind of games they like. Yeah, you hate WoW. You're all jaded and cool and hip. Not.

I've been playing WoW and quitting for random numbers of months alternately since launch day. I've played Horde and Alliance, PvE and PvP, and even played on a RP server for a bit (okay, less than a month, but I did play on one). I happen to enjoy the game. It's not for everyone, and neither is Guild Wars, or Halo, or Super Mario Brothers, or Angry Birds, Pokemon, or bridge, or checkers. There's a reason game stores have more than one game on the shelf. WoW is fun for me. It's fun for ten million other people, however you want to count them ... and given the number I've run into IRL who do or did play, no matter what they do with the numbers, there are a lot out there. And there are a lot more people who don't have any interest in it at all. Neither one is somehow superior because of their preference in computer games.

People seem to have this obsession with defining groups and excluding others.

We're all in the "like to use computers" group. There are people who look down on us, y'know, because we gab on Fark instead of, I dunno, watching Jersey Shore or something.

And we're in the "read Fark" sub-group. Out of all the people who use computers, there are a lot who hold Farkers in contempt. They prefer some other aggregator, some other forum, something that isn't Fark. Divide again.

So among Farkers, there are "computer games are cool" and "computer games are a waste of time" people. The former divide into console and computer players (I'm not exactly sure where the smartphone/tablet people fit in). The console players have their own religious wars; the computer ones, of course, have been fighting the Mac/PC war for decades, with Linux love/hate a comparative latecomer to the flameage. Those further subdivide into pro/anti-MMO people. Then the selection of MMO. Love/hate WoW? EVE? GW? SWG (pre-NGE, of course!)? Shadowbane? Something else? There's a mountaintop for you to perch on and look smugly down on all those other people who aren't cool enough to play your favorite game. Then among the WoW players, there are the "hardcore" and "casual" camps, both spewing bitter hatred for the other. Among the hardcore, there are the raiders and the non-raiders. The raiders divide themselves further ... well, you get the picture.

If you want everyone to agree with you on everything, in the end the only person you will get along with is the one you see in the mirror every morning.

I think WoW/MoP is fun. A lot of fun. More fun than anything they've done since BC.

Your mileage may vary.

But no matter how much you want to be a hipster, hating on WoW (or any other game) will not make you one.

Love it or hate, you guys/gals sure do like to talk about it. Which, I believe is why there are multiple threads associated with the game.

No, fark you, you're a soulless shell of the company you used to be, and I told you the instant you started up with that 'RealID' bullshiat that if you kept it up that we were done having any sort of monetary transactions, ever, and I meant it.

WoW is nothing now but a hideous gear treadmill dressed up in 2004 era graphics, where lore is routinely butchered and offered up as sacrifices to the 'Rule of Cool'. It's a casual-ified babby-tier piece of shiat that my mother in law quit because it got too easy.

My MOTHER IN LAW.

fark you and your Kung-Fu Panda grinder, we're done.

If I were cynical, I'd say this WoW release was less about a lack of creativity, and more a deliberate attempt to pander to China and Chinese players. But only if I were cynical.

Snapper Carr: Elroydb: I wonder what Yahtzee had to say about this game, heh

Yahtzee hates all MMORPG's on principal (actually I think Yahtzee hates everything that's not Silent Hill 2 - just some games he hates less than others)


Now now, he liked Portal. Then again, that might be because he found GlaDOS a sympathetic protagonist.

Why would it matter who thought of it first? "We need animal to do martial arts stuff with - quick name something Asian" "Uhhh, PANDAS!" Isn't exactly the peak of creativity either way. Besides, weren't Pandaren originally samurai until Chinese players got buttmad over a Chinese symbol being mixed with a Japanese symbol and Blizzard quickly rolled over and went "oh, do they look like samurai? Uh, we totally meant, *pssst* "Hey, Steve, what's Chinese fighting called?" kung-fu. Yeah, they're Kung-Fu...ers."

Wow, look at all the little girlz in this thread already

MoP is the best expansion yet, and I've been playing since vanilla WoW came out
It's just beautiful and the missions are more fun and imaginative
The new patch just made the Pandaren World PVP very much fun, there are bodies everywhere

Try it, you'll probably love it if you ever played WoW at all

If it hadn't worked the first four times, they wouldn't have paid for a fifth. But continue drinking that haterade. You're so right, Blizzactivision is soooo out of touch they can't read referral urls before throwing more money at clearly failed marketing.
