So here it is, at long last……now every nerd and geek from the four corners of the world can relax, for I shall now review the game that has ended more relationships and ruined more lives than drugs, guns, and American Idol combined!……World of Warcraft is set to be reviewed by yours truly.
Currently, this game is only available on the PC. This game was launched in 2004 and is still going strong today. I must admit that I started playing this game soon after it’s launch and still play it today, though not nearly as much. This game has become far more than what it was at the beginning, far more. Blizzard has been able to keep this game exciting, entertaining, and new over the years and shows no sign of slowing……..30 year old boys living in mom’s basement will be pleased. World of Warcraft is a MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game), so you need an internet connection, a modestly specked computer, and no significant other who cares about not seeing you for days on end. Sadly I fit right into that category, so piss off! Ok, seriously, this game has many features: a crazy medieval setting, customizable characters, war, quests, tournaments, and weapons with really catchy names like “De-Raged War Axe” and “Satan’s Skullspliter”….ok I made the last one up, but you get the point. This game is easy enough for the first time player and in depth enough to keep you glued to your chair, dismissing your family’s impassioned pleas to seek help. There is always something new to find and keep you interested. I would give this game a 10 if it were not for that little issue of having to deal with thousands of foul mouthed net nerds that need to learn to STFU. You can fight your way through other online combatants, or just enjoy the playable content and not have to worry about 12 year old Timmy and his unbeatable level 80 tier 7 retro paladin that he bought on e-bay, that would otherwise cower before me and my real fists!!!…but that not withstanding this game gets a solid 9 out of 10. WARNING: Those who like sunlight and a connection to the outside world should avoid this game.
