Breakfast Topic: Culture permeates

One of my favorite things about World of Warcraft is how much culture seeps into the game. I don't mean the influences of Asian architecture in Moonglade, or the Native American aesthetic of the Tauren race. I mean the references to internet memes, pop culture, and literature. These little things always make me smile, and they're one of the many things I missed during the 17 days I played Aion last year. Eastern games might have been where I found my first love, but it's Blizzard's flair and style that turned me on to American game development. In fact, those little jokes are a lot like a warm blanket that keeps me toasty warm on those chilly nights...

But do you know what's better than an ordinary blanket?

Friends at Blizzard, please hear me out. Do you see the image above? I want one. I want one like I want a Slap Chop or a Bedazzler. I want to get on my Snuggie in the World of Warcraft. I want one for the whole guild. It would be perfect for those drafty raid instances! My ordinary tabard just doesn't keep me warm from head to toe... Okay, my absurdity level is getting out of hand.

Sunday Morning Funnies: ShamanWow

This week, I've got a modest list of comics for you guys, although number seven should give you something to do!
  1. Cru the Dwarf: Some very important people are about to be revealed! Once they are, we find out that our friendly dwarf could use a history lesson.
  2. Dark Legacy Comics: No one likes to be Heartbroken.
  3. Flintlocke vs. the Horde, Episode 11, Part 7: The Final Straw.
  4. Check out the guest strip hosted by GU Comics, created by Luis Amaral, Dubious Achievements.
  5. The latest LFG shouldn't be missed, even if you regularly pass on it.
  6. NoObz: The Point of it All. I think about this a lot when loot drama crops up.
  7. Ctrl+Alt+Del has spoofed a couple of Infomercials. Namely, the infamous ShamWow, the Slap Chop, and their not-so-subtle pitchman, Vince Offer. If this doesn't tickle your funny bone, Abitranni from Cenarion Circle offered up what is arguably a better parody of the ShamWow infomercial.
  8. Teh Gladiators: Just When You Thought Ghouls Would Help.
  9. World of Warcraft, eh?: Valentine Vengeance.
  10. Ebenezer and Snooch: You probably shouldn't threaten your cat in the middle of playing WoW.
