In this week’s episode of AfterDark, a viewer brings up the casual nature of WoW professions.
The more World of Warcraft evolves, the more it seems like it embraces the casual player-base. For example, the necessity of leveling WoW professions is becoming less and less pivotal to the player experience. Could this be hurting the overall reception of the game?
Mike Schaffnit and Josh Allen talk about the new design philosophy that could be hindering previous player experiences that so many are fond of. The two also speculate on Keanu Reeves involvement with the Warcraft movie and Eduardo is back with the wacky questions like “Is training Pokemon animal cruelty?”

A complete list of questions in this week’s show follows.
- What will we see first, a live action Cowboy Bebop, or a Warcraft movie? Should either feature Keanu Reeves?
- Are you excited for Richard Garriot’s new IP, the Shroud of the Avatar?
- Is it worth spending money every year on a new installment of a game franchise when the changes are so minor?
- Do you feel that WoW professions have become too casual?
- After only a few missions in HotS it feels like Blizzard is setting up for something huge. Does it support the Titan = Starcraft project?
- Does DRM have a place in the future of gaming?
- What are your thoughts on the Steam Box PC being worse than a PlayStation 3 for lounge room gaming? Would you buy one?
- Is training Pokemon animal cruelty?
- Would Josh Allen shave his head on a livestream for a charity event?
- Do you think that people who don’t raid or do Looking For Raid are going to be disappointed that World of Warcraft isn’t putting in new 5 mans in Mists of Pandaria?
- How do you feel about the PlayStation 4? What are your favorite features? Do you think it will have any console exclusives? And what will Xbox have to do to compete?
