Ask Gauss

Sunday, yes that is what day it is. So if you are waking up and are hungover it is the morning after. Unless you had more than anyone and you in fact did miss Saturday. Being Sunday though you should know it is Ask Gauss. The day where I pick some questions asked to me throughout the week and have a go at them. If you are unsure how to ask a question it is pretty simple. You can click on the link on the top right of the page or just send the email directly to So let's look at what is on people's mind this week.

What are your thoughts on the Darkmoon Faire's new incarnation?

I think the idea behind it is great much better than the old way. My only knock against it is Blizzard has gone back to the super grindy style with this. I know they have tried to get away from this as of late as is easily seen in the fact you can do all your heroics in one day if you choose. I just think they should set a cap of what you can do each time the faire is in town and let you work towards that. I have no issue that rewards will take awhile, but just take away the everyday needs. In my opinion I really think it has to be one or the other and not both.

Have you seen the new Diablo III cinematic? And if so do you ever think we will see cinematics of that quality in WoW?

Well all I can give you to that answer is Yes and No. We do see epic quality cinematics of that quality in WoW. They are always revealed as the expansion cinematics. Do you remember the Deathwing cinematic when he broke out of the Maelstorm and destroyed the world? Now if you are talking about such cinematic in regards to trailers and in game cutscenes I really think this will never happen. WoW is an MMO and it is content based. We will continue to see Machinima style cutscenes and trailers. Blizzard already puts forth extensive work on an MMO and cutscenes as you are talking about bring nothing to the game. In a game like Diablo which is an RPG cinematics such as what you are referring to are an essential part of the game that helps progress the story.

Do you ever think there will be different difficulty options for the LFR? The content is just stupid easy on that level.

Honestly, it won't change. It is meant to be an entrance difficulty.

There you have it questions answered for the week. Hope you all got something out of it. For those waiting for it next week's Reader Post I want you to send in your ideas that a point in WoW if you could create an epic cinematic for it what would it be for? As always you have until Thursday night to get your response in. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Monday is almost upon us.
