Cataclysm

I'm such a terrible geek:



Cataclysm will destroy the current world in WoW, giving an entire new game, in a fashion, come this expansion. They recently dumped new class designs onto live and it's a bit chaotic, and there are earthquakes here and there, even, just for extra fun. But, it's pretty cool--there'll be goblins, a giant dragon destroying and world, and burnt bits everywhere.

Yeah, I suppose I could have a slightly cooler hobby, but 12 million people are in the same boat, and I'd just just go back to watching bad movies.

I watched Dog Soldiers last night. You probably got the better deal.

there's so many bad movies and tv shows i don't see now. i passed a stand with magazines on it, and apparently kourtney and kim were arguing.

i have no idea who they are and it's damn fine that i don't.

I have no idea what cataclysm is, other than being some kind of game. I don't know who Kourtney and Kim are either. I seem to be living under a rock.

"There is no Spoon!"

Enjoyed that line at least.

That was strange and fun. I didn't mind the movie, just thought it was all a bit confused in tone (but some people like that, it seems).

You know, I've never played WoW, and probably never would for aesthetic reasons and because I avoid video games in general (because I end up wasting my life on them). So I don't really get what it's about.

But am I to take it from this that they're remodelling their online world live, while the players are all online? Because that's a fairly neat concept.

Yup. Apparently we'll see the effects of the encroaching destruction as we play. Sounds great.

yeah, they are. it's pretty cool. every expansion has a whole heap of in world events, pathing the way. invasions, destruction, and the like. bliz do it pretty well, i reckon--it's unsurprising so many people play it.

Personally I'd rather watch bad movies. Online gaming is one of the few things on this planet that does fuck all for me. That an aniseed. Still each to their own.

yeah, to each their own, i guess.
