Ask a Beta Tester: Murlocs, mounts, and minimaps (WoW)

Sep 23rd 2008 3:55AM How unfortunate. Just because I want to do low level quests (for reputation, or for the achievements) hardly means that I would want to stop looking for gathering nodes. It would be just as easy to have a "Show low level quests" check box in the interface options menu. That way those of us who care about low level quests, weather permanently or occasionally could choose to turn it on there without sacrificing skill tracking (or hunter tracking for that matter)

How would you change Wii Fit? (Engadget)

Jun 17th 2008 4:02AM - Two Players, please!
As others mentioned, there is no 2-player mode. You have to back Player 1 all the way out of those damn menus, then log Player 2 in (and enter password if there is one), then go through menus again to find the game. Why isn't there a two-player mode where you can just take turns? For that matter, why not sell the board separately and have 2 players on a split screen, each with their own boards?

- Custom Trainer
You should be able to customize the trainer. Maybe make them Mii's, at minimum. Personally, I want my trainer to have a green mohawk. Maybe even add some celebrity voices. Oh wait, no downloadable content on the Wii :(

- Why no Skateboard? Slap some wheels on the snowboard and change the scenery please.

Other things people have mentioned:
- A way to skip all the A's
- Pre-programmed regimens (customizable by time or activity type)
- Put A button on the board.
- Custom soundtrack or at least a way to mute the background music without losing the sound effects (and Derek's idea about winning more songs is good)
- step extensions

Is it just me or is it hard to get the board to recognize that you are moving forward? I have to get up on tip toes for some things.

And Weeliano's idea about the Google Earth integration would be awesome. I want to run over pyramids or even the moon!

I'm sure some of this stuff will probably come out in Wii Fit 2. I'll pre-order just like I did with this one (for those wondering how people got it).

Photobombers -- Ruining Your Pictures, One Click at a Time (Asylum)

Jun 15th 2008 12:51PM a lot of this is taken from the collegehumor.com "That Guy" tag...

Kanguru rolls out Eco Drive line of external hard drives (Engadget)

Jul 20th 2007 1:20PM It's IMO that such feature should be in EVERY USB/Firewire enclosure out there.

But it's not.


Compass intros 47-inch 1080p PC / TV combo (Engadget)

Jul 18th 2007 8:26PM So what is it? A TV hooked up to a computer with an HD tuner card? Is the computer part of the monitor?

Periodic Table of the Internet (Download Squad)

Jul 18th 2007 4:05PM I would have thought that Google gets the hydrogen slot: The most common element in the internet universe.

Either that or spam.
