Now this isn’t right

Square Enix: Epic Hard FFXI Boss Killed In One Minute

I don’t think that this is right at all. The boss that was once called “unbeatable” until Square-Enix game masters teamed up and posted the video online that they defeated Absolute Virtue has now been toned down and conquered by a linkshell in the Pandemonium server. Of course they were well armed with Kraken clubs and all to beat the high notorious monster down.

I call this rubbish. I think that the bar should stay as high. They should give players the option to play the updated weaker version and the original version. Or at least not lose XP while doing the battle would also be great. But to beat Absolute Virtue in one minute means it’s faster to beat than Kirin or any of the other notorious monsters in the game.

That’s just not right.

Release dates are tied?

Diablo III: Diablo III’s Release Will Precede StarCraft 2’s

Kotaku reports that Blizzard’s Starcraft 2 release and Diablo 3 release dates are rumored to be tied together. This means Blizzard will not release Starcraft until Diablo is ready to ship.

This begs the question, why? If that’s the case then I don’t think we can expect Starcraft to be a stocking stuffer this holiday season.
