/cringe at the Foxtrot comic.Sometimes the media makes me more sad than usual. Would it have killed them to use WoW's actual name?

Ha ha! Don't you see? WoW players can't tell fantasy from reality! Ha ha ha! Isn't that HILARIOUS? And a TOTALLY original idea?! LOL!-_-(And now I'm reminded why I don't read newspaper comics since the Boondocks ended.)

"Sometimes the media makes me more sad than usual. Would it have killed them to use WoW's actual name?"Bill Amend has been calling it World of Warquest for 5 or 6 years.It might be due to copyright or in the land of Foxtrot that's what the game is called.

@Kylenne: Actually Bill Amend is pretty much a geek. He's been making WoW references as Warquest for years, and that's his choice. He also made up a Diablo pastiche, though the name escapes me but I do remember the strip mini-arc being how Paige got into the Beta for that DII-clone. He's also referred to Myst as Iron Mysticus I think, at some point; as well as its original name but can't remember which came first.Personally, I don't see the problem. Sometimes people can't tell preference from offense, and it's not hilarious, and most certainly not an original thought of general public.

Why does it matter anyway? Oh hey, it's not World of Warcraft, ME MAD RAWR!!!!111oneThat strip might've not had the best joke of all time but it's still enjoyable, so why the anger?

@Kylene: It's just Peter that can't seperate fantasy from reality.

The Diablo pastiche was called Rivablo: at the time, Riven was as hyped and expected as Diablo II, if you can believe that. Yeah, Amend rules.
