Our chronic casual gamer Steve Wilson returns this week with his weekly column. This time around, he's talking about World of Warcraft and the bility of casual players to gain epic gear.
I'm often grateful that there's one game out there that seems to be catering more frequently to the casual playstyle with every patch.
