I remember when this used to be a running gag in WoW...

The circle of "Life imatating Art" once again threatens mankind, this time in an MMO arena!

Of course, there IS that Michael Jackson MMO being planned...

Well, it's not as though World of Warcraft is high art. It's good to have as many games for as many players who want to play them.

I reviewed HKO...it's actually a pretty good little game, and actually has more depth in a few areas than many games, including WoW. In other words, this is not a bad game, especially for younger players.

I have to second this. I actually play HKO from time to time if just because it's good simple fun like playing Bejeweled or Peggle to me. Jump in, play for 30 mins, jump out. About the only negative I have is that the music gets tedious, but that's why you turn it off and listen to something else. :D

(I also collect Badtz-Maru, so I freely admit being part of the Kitty Kult.)

I read that review, Beau.

I will eventually play it, but I want to pick up that pink box up in the store, just to get started, but I keep saying "but" and coming up with excuses not to give it a try!

"For Gamer's Sake", I will, one day!

Well my original point was this title used to be an inside joke for WoW players once upon a time before Burning Crusade but now that's it a reality it's kind of interesting to see it.

It's less of a Warcraft joke than it is a South Park joke from the Warcraft episode.

a friend of mine wants into this game *BADLY*, she's a HUGE HK fan.. As I understand it she has been since she was little (she's best friends with my wife).

....Dude I can Flat guarantee you that the joke emerged IN WoW prior to South Park even having a Warcraft spoof episode. It was usually directed at idiots who claimed the low level instances were way too hard so we usually told them to go play Hello Kitty Online instead which at that time didn't exist.
But now the Joke has come to life and I no longer play WoW so who knows what the current gag is, Though I'm sure the Leeroy Jenkins bit about the egg room in that one instance is still going strong.

You can insist you're right, but the facts say you're wrong.

"On the episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft" of South Park, Butters states that he does not play World of Warcraft but rather the fictional game Hello Kitty Island Adventure."

Sorry we arent taking your anecdotal evidence as fact, but no. South Park came first.
