Matthew Rossi @MatthewWRossi — Matthew Rossi is a synapsid, perhaps descended from Cynognathus. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island, and grew up there before leaving to see the world and be mistaken for a sasquatch and/or minor singing celebrity in various locales. He currently lives and writes in Edmonton alongside his amazing and beautiful wife and their cats. He’s written three collections of speculative fiction, Things That Never Were, Bottled Demon and At Last, Atlantis. He loves playing warriors in World of Warcraft, barbarians in Diablo III, and he’s beginning to notice a pattern here.


Off Topic: Are we seeing the return of linear, closed world gaming?

I don't know if the term closed world makes any sense per se, but considering that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim ushered in the term 'open world' and it's become synonymous with a certain kind of gameplay experience -- also known as sandbox games -- I thought I'd talk about whether or not gamers are finally ready to embrace games which don't subscribe to that philosophy.

There’s going to be a change to how eyes glow in patch 8.3

If you play a Death Knight,  a Blood Elf or a Night Elf in World of Warcraft (and seemingly not a Void Elf or a Nightborne) then you're going to notice a few changes in patch 8.3, specifically to your eyes.  As part of the incoming Shadowlands changes that will be made to character customization options for all characters, Blizzard is going to test out some changes to the way that certain eyes glow, and the certain ones in question appear to be DKs, Blood and Night Elves.
