Not too long ago I informed you that Blizzard Wrath of the Lich King was coming along nicely, and that Blizzard had begun the Alpha process. Unfortunately some people have taken this knowledge and tried to use it for evil. Namely setting up fake websites and sending out emails informing people that they have been accepted into the beta program for the upcoming expansion.
I have always enjoyed gaming movies, I am one that is extremely easy to please when it comes to them too. I even enjoyed the latest Resident Evil that Scott here at Slashgear will start ranting about if you ever bring it up. Now, that being said, I never ever want to see the likes of Uwe Boll snagging the rights to create a World of Warcraft movie, frankly I think I'd go on a gaming strike. Thankfully Blizzard is smart enough to recognize Uwe Boll's lack of talent and turn him down flat.
I have a confession to make, I recently started playing WoW again. I thought I had managed to kick the habit, but unfortunately I just wasn't strong enough to stay away for good. I'm sure that I would have faltered once Wrath of the Lich King made its way to my desk. Speaking of the upcoming expansion, we have a few leaked screenshots that you might be interested in viewing.
This was a long week with no major events occurring, but there were some pretty big announcements. For starters we have a new BitTorrent Set Top Box from Myka, no more will you have to waste power by leaving your entire computer running all night just to get the latest screener from FXG or aXXo, and this little set top box will do it for you and then play it right from its hard drive for added ease. Then there were rumors abound of Blockbuster potentially putting out a new Set Top Box to push their movies, TV Shows, and other content out to.
My addiction to World of Warcraft has been suppressed for several months now. I can't say how long I'll be able to keep it up once Wrath of the Lich King hits later this year, but for now, I have one more reason to stay away. While I'm not a terrorist, I'm still thoroughly disturbed to hear that our own government is using the game to hunt down extremists.
