Entirely plausible. Is the minion Gabe Kaplan?

@ Dethgar.

Nope. Not at all. "Any similarity to persons living or dead is purely coincidental" and all that. :)

I really had no one in particular in mind for either character. I just didn't feel like making a standard 'WoW meets Mountain Dew this summer' post.

That new blue mountain dew they have out now rocks like no other. Its like a rasberry lemon cream soda that makes you all bug eyed on ginseng.

All they need is an "Epic Grape" flavor... and you need to visit the same vending machine three times a week and hopefully it may drop.
Of course you may only get "blue raspberry" or the standard green Dew flavor when you try. Still you and try to sell those to your friends.

Excellent post! You'd be *remiss* if you didn't make another post like this when events warranted it.

For some reason I found the telekenetic ottoman punting to be hilarious.

One thing a lot of people don't seem to realise is that WoW's success is contingent on Blizzard's marketing skills. It's not just the fact that they made a good game but they know how to sell it.

That said, this is a bridge into lunacy and self-satirising silliness. It's almost as bad as their WoW rewards credit card where you had to buy 2000 dollars worth of stuff to get a free month of gameplay (worth 14.95). This is certainly something that merits Mr. Egan's portrayal of the company as just a wee bit tipsy on their own power.

Wonderful post - WOW is a great game I'm just tired of its stranglehold on the MMORPG space in general. We need more solid games to come out that are actually ENTERTAINING versus being an over-hyped extension of someone's epeen.

More solid MMORPGs please.

Ktnxbai.
