All About Lisandro_v22
Since WoW is now free till lvl 20 I decided to give it a try. I don't plan to keep playing it but I'm a big fan of Warcraft 3 and it felt like the right time to see what was the fuss about.
I cannot really understand why the game needs 10gb but somehow it installed in under 5 minutes. As evidenced by this pic, time flows oddly in the magical world of Azeroth
On another news I'm using my free time for pointless websites. I'm giving the final touches to a tribute to the infamous Clock channel from the simpsons www.theclockpage.com and I'm starting a social network to write poetry. Which is less say, unproductive, illogical, inmonetarizable.
I want to play some games, but nothing is catching my attention for the PS3. There are a lot of good games in the horizon however. Dark Souls and the ICO collection and I'll probably will get Uncharted 3 and The Elder Scrolls which looks really really cool. Oh and I suppose I'll have to wait for FF Versus too, though it seems Square decided to work in a sequel to their horrendous main IP and put it on hold. I'm holding my breath to see if Square Enix announces a KH or something but they've gone from being my favorite dev to the least.
What are you playing now and which games are you waiting to get?
I just finished a website, it takes any link you throw at it and transform it into a fake page that scares you after a couple of seconds.
the url is: www.linkimprov.com
I don't have a logo yet, but aside from that the page is working 100%
I'm planning to do a game now!! =@ I'm really looking forward to it but I don't know if I'll be able to. Anyway untill I finish it ( if I do) my lips are sealed.
And as for games, I got Dragon Age Origins for the PS3. I don't think it was bad but I played like 10 hours and then didn't come around to play it again. From what I played it's not a bad game but not as incredible as every site picture it, some even went as far saying it's better than Demon's Souls.
I always think they blow things out of proportion when it comes to western rpgs. I always pick one up because everyone is boasting of it and quit the genre for a couple of years. In truth from the few I played I only really loved Plane Scape Torment. Then again it might be a matter of tastes.
I'm also seriously thinking of getting a 3DS but I'm also enamored of the iPad. Anyone got around to try the 3DS? I'm pretty anxious to get my hands on one but I haven't been able to see the 3D effect yet.
Now in other new I got the mail from sony telling me that all their info was stolen yet I don't see many use to the info it now that all my information was already stolen. Also it said something like "we are not sure if credit cards were already stolen" which means "all your data was stolen we just don't want to say it out loud". I mean the bloody cards work with only my address, there isn't even a code I can change and It would be a mess to shut them down. Is anyone cancelling their credit cards?
1- Create a real Profile section showing what systems the person own's, what genres he likes etc and integrate the Game Lists with the Profile page.
Aside from the obvious benefits it will also enable GS to personalize it's Ads, which would help GS and also mean we would get less info about games we simply don't care.
I mean, I keep getting all kind of ads when I have a game list that says I haven't bought one or two in my whole life.
2- Put Union invitations on a separate place than personal messages. Honestly I hardly receive any messages than union invites, many users simply don't open the inbox for this reason. Which brings me to another issue:
3- Make Unions more functional and more accessible. Unions are so hidden in the page that the only way of finding about one is through invitations which most of the time feel like spam. But the problem is that right now an Union can be having around 1000 users but has a traffic of 10 users a month, never wondered why?
Listen to this: Union-Posts-should-be-shown somewhere. Isn't that the point of "tracking" stuff?
Putting popular union posts on the main pages would create an extra layer of content GS wouldn't have to pay for.
4- Give some use to the bloody "Games Lists" tab. Use it to recommend games to the user or to find people with similar tastes than ourselves, like the LastFM music compatibility. I enter this guy page and I see he has a 2% compatibility with me, great!I leave without making any noise.
5- Invest a few hundred bucks on hiring a web designer, and I'm not talking about tweaking the theme but functionality. There are so many little annoyances with the site and stuff that just doesn't make sense.
6- I can't understand how anyone in it's right mind could have ever designed the My Friends frame at your left. You can't press the title to show all your friends instead you have a duplicate tab called "Friends". You can see who is "online" yet there is no way you can use this information since there is no chat.
If GS is so eager to keep this useless list, "My friends" should be a link to... My Friends (who would have guessed that?) and they should remove the Friends tab.
7- Add a search function for friends... A-B-C-D is great but you know. It would also be great to be able to you know... find stuff.
8- I love to talk with this guy about Mario games but I don't want to add this person I barely know to Facebook or messenger. Is it too much to ask for chat? Maybe it is, so I suppose I can live without this one.
9- The friend's feed is just wrong. My feed currently is telling that five persons added Bioshock Infinite to their tracked list and it's telling me, well... 5 times. Not very useful really.
10- GS seems to have a full feldged Tag system, they even have emblems to encourage people to add tags, but does anyone realize they don't use the tags in ANY way?
Think about it, Do we get recommended games? Can we search blog posts with the tag "Final Fantasy" for example?. I don't think so, In fact I don't have the slightest idea how the tags are being used and I doubt anyone does.
And one thing that I feel obliged to add, wouldn't it be nice if blog posts showed spaces between paragraphs?.
They can't keep using the same layout they created more than 10 years ago. For god's sake there wasn't even facebook back then. I'm not even asking for a very expensive redesign but just to fix little annoyances, I get annoyed they don't do it when it's extremely cheap and there is so much to profit from it.
And if that wasn't enough the simpleton design doesn't even work right. It's ok to be buggy if you are coming up with new features everyday but what's the excuse if you haven't improved anything in 10 years?.
