WoW_Ladies: Girl Gamers of World of Warcraft

The Mystery of the Floating Scorpid

So, there I was, having rotated through all ten farms, and even run an instance to get my main alt's VP capped for the week (... yay holidays?). I decide to go check for the Blade of the Poisoned Mind, what I expect will be a futile exercise, but I'd love to have it for the mage before I start leveling her in earnest. (And it'll be good for the warlock, too, which'll be much further down the road... still leveling the priest, and the mage will most likely be next, and then the rogue. Stupid rep and Spirit requirements for crafting...)

There is, of course, no caster sword, but there is an odd shadow...Collapse )

an unusual request

This may seem an odd comm to make this request, but I thought as other gamers you might have some suggestions.

My nephew has mild cerebral palsy, which is both a physical and mental disability in his case.  He manages well but he cannot play very intricate games - WoW would be beyond him for example.

However, as a teenager he loved games like Secret of Monkey Island, where he could follow clues and work out what to do.  It challenged him and made him think, which was both a positive thing and great fun for him, though it wasn't frantically fast paced and gave him time to work through the game at his own speed.

He mum gave him a PS3 for Christmas, and I wondered if any of you could recommend any PS3 games of this type (I know Monkey Island is available for the PS3 but I was hoping for a new game).  Something that would (a) catch his imagination (b) entertain him and (c) be some fun gaming experience for him.

I've tried scanning the PS3 gaming list but Im just not sure which of these game would suit him and though someone who had Playstation experience might have some ideas. 

Hope you all don't mind my somewhat off-topic request (:
