A General WoW Rambling

I have no idea why I stumbled upon this photo... But, I am glad that I did!!! I have been in tears for the last 15 minutes just thinking about how awesome that picture is!

After doing some research, I found out that I can actually shoot rainbows from a trinket that is quested. I would tell you where it is at, but I want you to experience the search on your own! Needless to say Nevernude is on his way right now to pick one up!!! 

In other news, a few co-workers of mine started playing WoW again! This is a good thing, I miss the feeling of playing with people that I actually know. I haven't played with Real life friends in a MMORPG since FFXI, back in the Caitsith DMA days! There is a little throw back for you! The cool part is the guy who is running the guild is also owns/runs a local comic store, I am thinking there will be a lot more events and such and maybe some new friends will be made!

Day 2- Why You Decided to Start a Blog

Hmmm.... This is a pretty deep question... Why would anyone take time out of their busy lives to start a blog, let alone a blog based off a video game???

The easy answer would be for pride and fame. That would be true, if I really did care about that. I mean I do get some satisfaction from seeing that my blog hit the three thousand unique hit mark, but at the same time I really could give a fuck about the number of people that look at it. It is more of a journal about the time I spend in WoW and allows an deeper immersion for me.

Also, there is the hope that I could write one day for a major blog company... I am looking at you wow.joystiq.com... LOL!!

With this WoW blog it's more of a way to look at the general populace and they way they treat a "different" person from the norm. That alone, I feel is an aspect of WoW that has not been explored. So far, it has been terrible if you dont have the best gear and best talents. I know that I can stand outside of fire, run away when needed, and make myself a NON-Burden on the healer....

The last reason, I wanted to have a public platform to write about this, and allow people to speak as well. An active dialogue is probably one of the strongest forms of changes one can have, and if that someone notices this... MORE THE BETTER!!!

20 Days of WoW! Day 1 - Introduce Yourself

While I sit and wait and wait and wait... for WoW to download, I decided that I should start this blogging challenge in hopes that I will be done downloading in time to play the Pandaria Beta!

Well my name is Michael, and I am 29, and a closet gamer. Been playing WoW off and on for 7 years. My first real guild totally imploded... Google "Gilgamesh and Onyxia server" and see what happens! I took a 3 year break to devote my life to FFXI (Holla to CaitSith and the DarkMercenaries!)... I work as a bartender at a river-view restaurant. Pretty amazing gig, Work hard and play hard... Talking about playing hard, I do that on occasion... I just got done backpacking Europe for 35+ days. Pretty exciting stuff, saw and experienced so things I would never have been able to.

I also use to teach snowboarding, did that for a few seasons before moving off the mountain. I love the outdoors, gardening, drinking beer, women, playing games, golf, and camping... lol... That totally sounds like a match.com profile...

Here is a quick pic from my trip to Naples, I am the one on the left

I do enjoy writing in my free time, and look at this blog as practice for some ideas in the future. If you do enjoy this, I have a real life blog, Awkward Moments
Well I am off! Time to go and enjoy the sunshine!

That's Right!!! I did go over to the Dark-Side... and the cookies sucked!!! SWTOR, was terrible... I really didn't get it... There was not a whole lot to do... I know, it is new, but come on!!! Don't release a product that can not even compete on the level of WoW... I can hear all the Fanbois, saying, "Nevernude, its new! They are adding new content everyday! I mean it is on par on Vanilla WoW!!!" 

You know what I say to that??? BULL SHIT!!! 
If I was designing a MMORPG for today's market, I would make sure it was at least on par on with the current ones... Why should I wait 2-3 years for a game with options that I can have now??? Makes no sense to me, and if it doesn't make sense to me, GOD HELP US ALL!!!!

Now I am re-installing and hoping to get my pony back... Blizzard you won this round... May your Dreams be filled with Pandas!!!
