Fast Leveling – World of Warcraft


As every other massive multiplayer online role playing game, World of Warcraft requires you to start with a level 1 character and you get to level him up by killing monsters and doing quests. We realize that the process of leveling up to the maximum level, so you can play with your friends, can be a boring task, and so does Blizzard. In fact Blizzard has recently lowered the experience required to gain a level up until level 70, and increased the experience gain from completing quests at the same time. With these changes fast leveling in world of warcraft is now a reality.

Fast leveling in world of warcraft involves doing doing mainly quests nowadays. In the past when questing wasn't as rewarding as it is now you had a the choice of either grinding or questing. Grinding is a term used for players that prefer to kill monsters in an area over and over again, with the aim of quickly gaining experience. This task is more monotonous than questing, because it forces you to repeat the same things hundreds of times. That being said at the moment the fastest way to level up in World of Warcraft is doing quests.

There are other options for fast leveling in world of warcraft, in the form of leveling up guides. While at the beginning there weren't many available guides available, lately the amount of guides has multiplied by a lot. Among the best guides available today you can get: "Joana's 1-80 Leveling Guide", "Brian's 1-80 Leveling Guide", "Zygor 1-80 Alliance and Horde Guide" and many more.
Joana's 1-80 Leveling Guide

Joana's WotLK guide is a part of the 1-70 leveling guide, but with this new guide Joana has made a mapmod, this mod is an addon which you can installed into your game to point out all of the quests and npc coordinates on your world map. You Never need to press alt tab every time you need to find out where you need to go next. All you would need to do is open your game map and select the quest you would like to complete and follow the dots on your game map. The mapmod shouldn't be to hard to install, but if you find that you're having problems then you can go to the FAQ with detailed instructions that Joana has made.

Funcom Loses


To be honest, I was extremely close to grabbing Age of Conan off the shelf more than just once, but something kept me from doing that. Oh, yeah, I was thinking about how many beers was it worth, and - most of all - I am not really into MMOS. Now, WoW proves I am one of the few not into this kind of games, but Blizzard's product also shows there can be only one...
Funcom Loses - Age of Conan
...and that one won't be Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, unfortunately. Why? Well, fourth quarter's financial results revealed a very ugly truth, with an operating loss of no less than $23.3 million, and now the CFO is jumping off the Funcom boat.

Olav Sandnes, now the former Funcom Chief Financial Officer, said "Funcom is a company with a substantial potential based on a unique combination of skill sets in a fast growing global market. I wish Trond Aas and the rest of the organization all the best in realizing the full potential of the company."

Now, he may be right about the potential part, but "fast growing global market" may not be that accurate. Anyway, now we're talking about around 100,000 subscribers, and the chance to see Age of Conan being launched in Poland and Russia.

I don't know what to say, it would really be a pity to see Age of Conan going down, especially now, when it should be taking off, considering all the efforts that pushed it so far...

Windows 7…For Games!??


...let me stop laughing, first of all! OK, I'm done. Almost died laughing. I love jokes. I love good jokes, as well as bad ones, as long as I'm not the one targeted. Need for Speed Undercover was a good joke, although a pretty bad game, and now I am trying to figure out what kind of joke is ShellShock 2: Blood Trails is. In the end, it may not be a joke at all, we'll see that when the review is ready, but now, let's talk about Windows 7 for games, the joke that made me laugh in first place, shall we?
Games for Windows
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Microsoft's VP of the Interactive Entertainment Business for the EMEA region, Chris Lewis, said "Windows 7 will be great for games, undoubtedly. It's all good news - it's even more robust, it's quicker relatively, and the early testing cycles are proving very promising overall. I think it'll be nothing but good news for PC gamers, but we'll have more to say on that later on this year."

I wonder..."quicker" means faster than Vista, probably, but what about "faster than XP"? That's a pretty good question, but I guess we'll only get to see the answer when the thing comes crawling out of the Microsoft lair.

On the other hand, I think that the Games for Windows campaign is a pretty good one, and it's good to see Microsoft saying that "We remain focused on it, you'll see more from us there in the future, and long may that continue."

Just to make it clear that I don't really hate Microsoft, here's what I would wish - a new Windows version that gets back to the basics, allowing companies like Stardock to survive by making interface-candy applications, and focusing on the OS core instead. I think Linux is a good example of a OS where the core is being developed while leaving a lot of room for interface enhancements to be added afterwards, and that's where Microsoft should look and learn.
