For Dan O’Halloran @ Massively

Dan had a hands on with the WAR beta at Comicon. And he’s riled a few people up by commenting that:

WAR strikes me as WoW mechanics wrapped in different lore plus a couple of new features.

I don’t personally see the issue with a gamer comparing a new game he tries with other games he has played before. Especially since WoW mechanics could also be described as “basic MMO mechanics”.

No, my beef with him is the continued use of the word revirginization. Just stop doing that before the grammar police come round, ‘k?

  1. This sent Keen a little off the deep end, it seems. I’ve never heard of this guy before. Is he a Massively employee? Why didn’t they get the trustee old Michael Zenke to cover WAR?

  2. Yeah, revirginization made me gag too!

  3. Aikau: Maybe they thought it would be interesting to get someone else’s opinion. I think Dan writes for WoW Insider but you can see in the comments to that post that he discusses that he’s played lots of other games too.

  4. I’ve a question.

    Was Zenke even at Comic-Con?

  5. (this seems like a perfect opportunity to mention I’m going to Comic-Con next year!)
