The Daily Grind: How often do you inspect people?

I swear, I'm not trying to examine you for your gear. I really don't care about that. I'm examining you because your outfit looks really nice and I want to see how you did it. I want to find out your vanity-based secrets. I want to build on that outfit to produce something gorgeous the next time I...

The Daily Grind: Do visuals change your opinion on classes?

I had a reasonably high-level druid whom I had completely abandoned in World of Warcraft simply because I didn't like forever being shifted into another form. Then I found that Glyph of the Stars exists, and suddenly I'm not only playing the class but enjoying it again. There's no practical...

The Daily Grind: How do you choose your mount?

World of Warcraft used to make earning your first mount a pretty big deal. These days, it's less a deal simply because the game has so many mounts it's almost absurd.

Storyboard: To say nothing of cute shoes

Just as in real life, player characters in MMOs have more than one set of clothing for different situations. Sure, I don't divide my actual clothes up in usual MMO categories ("well, those are my PvP pants"), but I have things I wear around the house that I wouldn't wear out in public or when...

The Daily Grind: What game do you think never looks good in screenshots?

Screenshots might not be the most important part of a game, but they're important before you decide to pop in and play.
