World of Warcraft – Give it a Chance
I have to say that one of my nerdiest background issues lately has been my frustration with World of Warcraft. I did the 10-day trial and liked it enough to eventually purchase what they call the “Battle Chest” as I mentioned in a previous post. I’m not very good at the game, but I was excited about getting involved in it. I have never played Warcraft nor signed up for any other Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG – yes, it’s a real acronym), so I felt dumb trying to get into this one for the first time.
I’m not very good at it, first of all. I keep dying and taking damage to my items because getting resurrected for free only happens where ever you died, which usually means whatever killed me is still there. I finally started a brand new character last night since I figured out how to get my items repaired. My new character is a Blood Elf Warlock, and I played through it last night until I got to level 9, saw it was 2:30am, and decided it was time for bed. Yes, it’s as addicting as they say. But I’m probably not half as addicted as some people.
I’ll keep you up to date here with my progress through the game, and let people know how a not-so-hardcore gamer does it in World of Warcraft. Stay tuned!
