My favorite weapon is type is polearms: spears, Dane axes, halberds, and glaives. There is nothing more satisfying, than a devastating swing of a halberd or simple but effective stab of a spear. When it comes to weapon variety and historical accuracy, no one had beat Mount & Blade series. Nowadays, "professional" game designers often create the nuisance like gunblades, whips, claws and giant ironing board shaped swords, while authentic historical weapons are forgotten.

The reason why layoffs happen around this time of year is to help balance the books in what is usually the least productive time of the year because so many people take off time for the holidays. For example all employees on my project had to take some furlough days in Q4 because the project is short on funds. It sucks but it's just the way the corporate world works.

For the question of the week: Hmm that's a tough one... can I pick two? Well I'm gonna. First one would be 'fistweaving' from WoW. It was mistweaver monk's passive ability to heal while dealing. With it I overgeared my monk and punched my way through dungeons while keeping the party topped off, until it got the axe with Legion. RIP fistweaving. The second would be Jump (and Super Jump) from FFXI's DRG. What's more fun than hopping on a mob's head?

P.S. Welcome to the club Marvel Heroes players... hopefully you'll get a better send off than CoH did. And if NCSoft troubles were CoH fans, good.

Best weapon ever has to be the Plunger & Toilet Seat lance in the original Monster Hunter.
