Yeah, so Kalimdor has changed a bit in World of Warcraft. I’m going to be honest and say that I’ve never actually liked Kalimdor very much purely from a continent design standpoint; it doesn’t feel like it’s laid out like an actual land mass, but more like a rectangle someone drew to hold some zones for the game. It’s more of a block of space than a real piece of land; compare and contrast with every other expansion continent. That may just be my issue. Regardless, Kalimdor has undergone a lot of big changes over the years, to the point where I’m tempted to say that it has actually changed more than the Eastern Kingdoms. A lot of the changes over there feel more marginal; Westfall, for example, has a couple of new geographic features post-Cataclysm, but it’s not all that different (and hence got left off the last column intentionally, not accidentally). Over in Kalimdor, well… it’s not really comparable to what … [Read more...] about WoW Factor: The zones that changed the most from Classic, Kalimdor edition

The Blizzard Entertainment we once knew and loved has vanished into the mists of time. Blizzard was once a shining city on a hill that stood out as a beacon of gamer-centric righteousness in the sleazy wasteland of the video game sausage factory. Blizzard’s extraordinary game development philosophy defied conventional wisdom. Blizzard did things their way. They didn’t care what anyone thought and their fans loved them for it. Today, the maverick Irvine-based gaming studio once known for its unwavering commitment to quality has been transformed by ambitious leadership that wants to turn Blizzard into the next Disney. But, there is a price to pay. To gain membership into this exclusive club you must be willing to sell your soul and conform to the obligatory leftist worldview that is held by most California-based entertainment and tech companies. For the last few years, the new Blizzard — Blizzard 2.0 — has proceeded to implement their part of the Faustian bargain. … [Read more...] about Blizzard Jumps on the Social Justice and Identity Politics Bandwagon

"Blogging gifted me My first car". That day was a milestone in the journey of my life, and It's like history repeating itself. Today on 29th July 2015 I'm rewriting the story with one change, and this time it's a "Flat" instead of a "Car". After living in rented flats for the last seven years, finally I have a permanent shelter & address. Last year I purchased a flat in Gurgaon with my blogging income from blogging & home loan from ICICI bank. And, Finally today I got the possession of the flat. This is once in a lifetime moment & my sincere gratitude to ShoutMeLoud, to you & all the readers. Little backstory… I left my parents house in 2002, and I dreamed of following the steps of my Mentor (Grandfather), who moved from a small village to a city & set a landmark for the generations to follow. I'm not close to what he did; someone who build a house with his own hands, but I'm content that my direction is right. On 1st December 2008, I never thought blogging could … [Read more...] about Blogging Gifted Me Shelter For The Life – Feeling Blessed!
