The Queue: Gems are truly truly outrageous

I’ve written up two guides to gems this week, one for Cataclysm Classic and one for The War Within. And while they’re not hard to write per se, they require a lot of meticulous work and fact-checking which are not my favorite things to do. By the time I finish I want to immerse myself in a sensory deprivation chamber for an hour just so my eyes can listen to fragrances for a bit. Sadly I do not have access to one so I’ll need to content myself with my second favorite post-writing activity, video games.

ReMists is of course the big news alongside Cata Classic (which I’m skipping) but even though it’s been less than a week I’ve already made huge progress towards my goals. Which is good because I have a lot of other games to play — still need to finish Tales of Kenzera: ZAU and Persona 4: Arena Ultimax, and I’d like to get started on Unicorn Overlord. We’re also only a couple weeks out from Summer Game Fest 2024 — Assassin’s Creed: Shadows got a head start by announcing last week — and I’m sure there will more games added to my list that weekend. TL, DR: SO MANY GAMES.

So while I level my Goblin Hunter through remixed Pandaria let’s answer some questions!

The Queue: Everything is on fire!

I do appreciate how, as my personal life gets incredibly busy to the point where everything feels like chaos, it also gets incredibly warm out. Is everything on fire? Are we in hell? Such ambiance. The vibes.

This is The Queue, our daily column where you ask us questions and I’m honestly shocked you expect me to have answers.

The Queue: Wait, am I supposed to be here today?

Once upon a time, a horse walked into a bar and asked the bartender for a drink, as one does. Well, not horses usually, but just go with me. Anyway, this horse asks this bartender for a drink which is a normal occurrence because the bartender asks the horse, “Say you’re in here kind of a lot buddy, do you think that you might be an alcoholic?” This question gives the horse a ibt of a pause before it responds “Gee, I don’t think I am…” When suddenly — poof!! The horse vanishes from existence.

You see, this is a play on the famous line of philosophical thinking by Rene Descartes that “I think, therefore I am” The horse said I don’t think I am and thus must not have been. However, if I explained this to you earlier it would’ve been putting Descartes before the horse.

This is all a long and roundabout way of saying, I’m pretty sure I am — let’s Queue!

The Queue: A blast from the past

Since I’m currently so busy with end of the school year wrap ups and events and getting ready for summer activities, I’m taking this opportunity to go through my gmail inbox and finally get a handle on my unread emails. I’ve had the same gmail account since before WoW launched in 2004, so it’s been a weird little time capsule to explore, from flash-in-the-pan historical figures — do you guys remember Ken Bone? — to ghosts of BlizzCons past. I just deleted the email notification informing me that I was granted access to edit the Blizzard Watch Google+ page. Ah, memories.

This is The Queue, our daily column where you ask us questions, and we give you the answers — no, we’re not going to discuss how many emails, because Liz might fire us in disgust.

The Queue: All about Mom

It was Mother’s Day yesterday, I hope you remembered to get Lillith something nice! After all, she is the mother to all of Sanctuary and doesn’t get the recognition that she deserves most of the time.

I was going to get her a nice box of chocolates, but then I thought up something much better — a brand new cloak made of the living skin from a trio of sacrifices! Just what every Mom deserves on their special day.

While I try and figure out if this cloak is dry clean only, it’s time for — The Queue!
