I had been limping through the darkness for what seemed like forever. My allies had all fallen to an ogre deep within an abandoned mine, and town was nowhere in sight. Out of potions, lamp light, and food I crept through the darkness toward a curious torch in the distance. Salvation? As I approached, squinting to see what was ahead, the blast of an unfamiliar horn made me realize that I had made a fatal mistake. Within seconds a dozen snarling goblins surrounded my wounded avatar with swords raised. Soon after that, I was dead. This is the brutal world of Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma.
We were lucky enough to interview the lady gamers of Team Unicorn here on the site, and they’re about as hardcore as they come. Of the bunch, I would have to say Milynn is the most dedicated WOW player (and WOW dedication is serious business). Long ago, I too was a WOW addict (I can sense those disapproving glares), and my addiction was very real. How real you ask? I had my own guild of over 300 players, a half a dozen maxed out characters, as well as DKP flow charts and boss-kill files. We were never very “good”, but it sure was a lot of fun. Tanking however, is one thing that I never had the balls to do. Tanks have a microscope on them at all times. They have to be perfectly geared and know each boss fight like the back of their hands. If they don’t, well, they get bitched at. World of Warcraft, with all of its flaws, is still one of the best designed games of all time. Check out Milynn’s Adventures in Tank Land where she tries to get her lvl 85 Death Knight ready to tank some high end WOW content.
