WRUP: Cataclysm -- The game show

Every week, just at the start of the weekend, we catch up with the WoW Insider staff and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" -- otherwise known as: WRUP. Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game -- and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too!

Ladies and gentlemen, let me share a secret with you all. Some kids dreamed of being a doctor, or an astronaut, or even president. Not Fox Van Allen. I wanted to be ... a game show host.

I'm not sure what the allure was, exactly. I wanted to be the one to say, "Be sure to hit your plunger, because that's what stops the clock." I wanted to be the one to explain, with a modicum of non-biased concern, "You want to be careful about picking up a third whammy in round one." It wasn't just the brand new cars, though, oh no -- I wanted to be there to watch cruel, cruel defeat be snatched from the jaws of victory.

I've never quite gotten to live the dream. Never, that is ... until Monday night.

See, this Tuesday is the midnight release of Cataclysm. It's a major event to be sure. And I'll be there, at a Gamestop in Boston (near the Park Street T station, to be exact), armed with something. Loot codes. Prizes. I will live my dream. And if you're in the neighborhood, you should swing by and win some.

So, a Gamestop in Boston -- that's where I'll be getting my copy of Cataclysm. As for my fellow bloggers ... well, that's the subject of this week's WRUP question: How are you getting your copy?

Meet WoW Insider at midnight Cataclysm releases

The release of Cataclysm is upon us. There are launch events happening all over the world, from Blizzard's official midnight release event in Fountain Valley to the Exclusive Books release party in Johannesburg, South Africa. Despite the ease of purchasing a Cataclysm digital download, many members of the WoW Insider staff will still be attending midnight releases -- and we'd like to meet you!

Don't be shy! If you see someone in a WoW Insider shirt, stop and say hello. If you don't see someone in a WoW Insider shirt at the locations listed below the break, it's probably because it's the middle of winter and we're all doing our best not to freeze to death. Just ask around!

Oh, did I mention all WoW Insider staff members will be armed with Slashdance and Tiny loot codes from

A list of attending staff members and their locations are behind the break. And below, pictures from the Wrath midnight launches attending by the WoW Insider crew.
