Cataclysm: Heroic Shadowfang Keep and Deadmines Available at Launch
I know you all heard the bad news that heroic modes for

have the heroic modes for both SFK and DM at launch!
Heroics are not ready for testing.
Heroic Shadowfang Keep and Heroic Deadmines
be released with Cataclysm. You will not have to wait for a later patch.

The Weekly Marmot - End of Expansion Raiding
So this week I take a look back through my experiences with raiding in the weeks and months prior to the release of Wrath of the Lich King and The Burning Crusade to give a little insight into what exactly is happening right now that's causing so much trouble for so many guilds. Why are so many players quitting their guilds? Why are so many quitting the game entirely? And just because I'm never content to just sit around and talk about how bad things can be, I give some tips and ideas for dealing with it and making sure your guild isn't one that falls victim to the dreaded End of Expansion Blues.

Just so it doesn't catch you all by surprise, we have a scheduled maintenance coming up next Tuesday!

Vindictus, the 'Hack n' Slash' F2P MMO, Has Been BFF'd (??)
Let's take Fable, strip down all the RP open-world nonsense and replace it with everything we've learned from the past 17 'Street Fighter II' games. Then sprinkle in some MMO elements, some glow, and make it fit the lore of Nexon's ongoing MMO series, "Mabinogi" but call it VINDICTUS...in the U.S.
If you read that with any negative connotation, you may be surprised at just how well this product has come together thus far...

Azeroth, Revisited: Stratholme in Cataclysm
Once again, we're going to dive into the beta and take a look at one of my personal favorite dungeons from classic—
Now if you don't remember anything about
, here's a quick rundown: Stratholme was originally one of the largest human cities in the world. During the events in Warcraft 3 (as we witnessed in
La Matanza de Stratholme
), Prince Arthas finds out the plague has spread to the city and orders it purged. Later on the Undead took control of Stratholme and Kel'Thuzad established it as his capital and built the floating fortress
Overall the dungeon has not changed much physically, but there is now a new wall splitting it literally into two instances. They have changed the level range for each side, levels 42-52 for the Main Gate and 46-56 for the Service Entrance.
OBLIGATORY SPOILER WARNING: DON'T READ THIS IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Just a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend an event called "Afroshoto", held at Boardners down in Hollywood. The event featured a small invitational Super Street Fighter 4 Tournament—8 total players, single elimination—as well as a small concert by a group called the Miles Mosley Band (which I recommend highly).
It was all in all a very successful event, especially for a Sunday night, which is hardly a major bargoing night. The band was excellent, the tournament was impressive (and watching Justin Wong go all the way with
, my character of choice, was nice), and it was awesome as always to be at a public gaming event.
The band leader said something interesting, though, as they were setting up. I can't remember well enough to quote exactly, but the sentiment was something like this:
For the first time in history, technology has advanced to the point that the toys of our childhood have evolved enough to remain our primary form of recreation as adults.
This stuck with me, long after the event itself. The more I think about it, the more I realize not only how true it is, but how

Cataclysm New Feature: Level Sync?
recently did an interview with
Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street
, where they talk Blizzard's plans and ideas behind Cataclysm. One part that really stood out was Ghostcrawler mentioning a new system being put in place that will
allow high level characters to decrease their level to help out low level characters.
This sound familiar to anyone? Anyone who has ever played Final Fantasy XI may remember this as
, and City of Heroes players may remember this as their "Mentoring System". Ghostcrawler does mention that this may happen
, so no getting your hopes up if it doesn't come true!
Cataclysm may also eventually include a system that allows players to scale down their character's level in order to help newer players. The heirloom items unveiled in Wrath of the Lich King already scale with a character's level, so adjusting t
