WotLk = Empire Strikes Back…You be the judge

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008
Join Me!

I was playing a Death Knight, killing lots of Scarlet Crusaders the other day, when it hit me. Wrath is just like Empire Strikes Back.

Stay with me here.

1. They both start in place filled with Ice.

2. You get attacked constantly.

3. You take part in huge battles with cool vehicles.

4. You are related to a big bad dude, who wears black and talks with a deep voice.

5. The bad guy has mysterious magical powers.

6. The bad dude has a big glowing sword and commands thousands of troops.

7. There is swampy forest that has small creatures with funny voices.

8. There is a floating city in the clouds (Dalaran / Cloud City). If you step off the ledge, you go splat.

9. If you play the hero, then the big bad dude is your father (sort of).

10. [edit] They both made absurd amounts of money on the opening weekend.

What am I missing??

Blizzard Posts Pimer for new WotLK players (old news)

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

The nice fanatics people at Blizzard have provided lots of helpful starting tips for WotLK. My favorite feature is the interactive map of Northrend. My hat’s off to their web team. Beautiful and helpful.

So where is the amazing post, Kurn?

Well…I can’t get my voice recognition to work with my Logitech mic. Since I mostly play while my daughter is asleep, I don’t want to shout. It seems that Apple’s Speakable Items likes their mic better than mine. WTF??

If you wonder where I’ve been, log in to WOW. Sheesh. Have you done the seasonal quests? Been a zombie? I actually helped kill the headless horseman and they let me get the epic ring. My first epic!!.

So please forgive me if this blog has suffered. Feel free to comment 🙂

Hey did you know Wrath of the Lich King is officially released on Thursday. Even though I heard that 7/11 already had it 🙂

p.s. The Realms have been down all day, so this is a good time for you to read blogs 🙂
