Re: Digimon MMO

Micro-transaction MMOs can burn in the lowest pit of hell. That is all. World of Warcraft has microtransactions. Guild Wars. Aion (maybe, I dont recall... might have been about bankspace).

Re: Apple launches iPad tablet

On the subject of rotation, there is a sbsettings rotation inhibitor extension. Requires a jail break.
I just did some experimentation with my ipod touch, and couldn't replicate that video orientation.

Re: Apple launches iPad tablet

I for one am buying a iPad for two reasons.
1) It can replace my ipod touch as a mobile computing device, and let me free up 4 gigs of space dedicated to videos/ apps/ homebrew
2) It will be a beastly device once jailbroken.

Right now things are decently balanced for PvE at least. DK tanks need a bit of a buff, Elemental Shaman are a tad weak as well.

Also Blizzard has always seemed to make pvp be class roshambo, so one class will always think the other is op. There are times when the classes are imbalanced though, and it rectified as quickly as possible.
