Saints Row IV's Inauguration Station (standalone character creator) released yesterday. That game's content isn't exactly safe for a site that attempts to be family friendly, but I vibrate with excitement nonetheless.
What is the difference between this Connected realm thing that was announced this week and the Virtual realms from a while back? to me they sound like the same thing.
As far as I can tell (and as Nethaera mentioned on Twitter the other day), it's the exact same thing with a new name.
Anyone know if ilvl's are scaled in WG and TB?
They are not.
Anyone try the new "pretzel roll" burgers from Wendy's?
I haven't, but I ate a reuben brat on a pretzel bun at the Wisconsin State Fair yesterday. Was delicious.
What do you think about the lesser charm concept being carried forward to the next expansion? I think it's worked out really well. It gives people a real but indirect way for people to improve their gear by getting out of towns and doing things in game from killing mobs, doing quests, and battling pets.
I don't mind the system, but if I would make one change, I'd make that currency account-wide. In general, I'm opposed to things that lock you into playing just one character. I like playing alts, I get burned out on the game at ludicrous speeds if I don't change it up sometimes. Even if there's still new content to explore on my main, I need a gameplay change from time to time to stay interested. It would be great if I could accrue charms on an alt and let my main use them, or vice versa when my main no longer needs them. Either way, I'm out interacting with the world as a player. Which character I'm using to do it shouldn't matter.
What will happen if two people have the same name on the Connect Realms? Will someone have to give their name up because I read that Blizzard want the realms to feel seamless and therefore can't tell who is from what realm (outside of chat).
The Connected Realms FAQ explains players not from your physical realm will be marked with a # after their name in chat.
If you could have anyone's voice in game who would it be?
Jaina Proudmoore. Don't care if she's a lady and I'm not. Laura Bailey is an awesome voice actress. If you don't believe me, pick her voice in Saints Row the Third and have your mind blown. She stuck around for Saints Row IV, I'm pretty stoked about that.
I'm not shilling for Volition, I just really like Saints Row!
