This has been a week for opinions. Lots of things happening; new patches, jokes, games on platforms, and a partridge in a pear tree. And while bloggers should have opinions, there's sometimes a wide diaspora about what we even having bother having opinions about!
With that in mind, when we asked our intrepid team what they're playing this weekend, we asked them to also tell us about their favorite opinion right now.
Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) This weekend is going to be spent giving those patch notes a closer look, doing a heck of a lot of writing, and watching baseball games with my Dad - woohoo, baseball season is here! That said, uh ... I guess at the moment my opinion on the Rockies is that they seem to have a fairly solid hitting team, but man their closing pitchers could use some work. Some of them are good, some of them are ... not. I'm sort of hoping it was just opening week nerves on their part. Despite that, I'm still hoping they have a better season than last year. ... I can always hope, anyway. Right?
Elizabeth Harper (@Faience) Too much info to absorb without being able to get some gameplay in. However, I've got company over this weekend so no time to game or even think that much about it!
Elizabeth Wachowski (@leeatwaterlives) My hunter is almost to Pandaria, and my warlock and DK are pushing well through Northrend, so it'll just be leveling for me. Maybe some Stick of Truth if I have time at home.
My current favorite opinion is that bedbugs suck. One of our fire stations was infested and I have bites all over. My left ankle is swollen so badly it hurts to wear my boots. And everything itches.
Matthew Rossi (@MatthewWRossi) Yor The Hunter from the Future is an unacknowledged masterpiece.
Olivia Grace (@oliviadgrace) This weekend, I'll be playing a lot of the "being a grown-up" game. But the first thing I'll be doing is playing the "write up an interview with Celestalon" game! After that, maybe some arenas, maybe some Diablo or Heroes if I get the time. Being a grown-up really gets in the way of having fun sometimes.
My favourite opinion right now is that opinions are subjective, and that you should allow people to have opinions that differ from yours. You don't have to agree with them, but all the folks who harp on about free speech should consider applying the same logic to free thought.
Sarah Pine (@ilaniel) Playing the "going to a dinner party" game this weekend so Saturday will be busy and Sunday will likely be relaxation time. Uh, my favorite opinion? I am of the opinion that I need a new bottle of perfume...yup.
The weekend is the perfect time to kick back, relax and enjoy some game time. Are you an achievement junkie? Can't get enough raiding? Rolling a new alt? Considering taking the leap into roleplaying? Whatever your favorite way to play World of Warcraft, let us know in the comments what you're playing this weekend!
