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?
