Big News of the Week: During the Spike TV 2006 Video Game Awards, premiering this Wednesday, December 13 at 10:00 PM ET viewers will be treated to the world premiere of the opening cinematic for WOW: The Burning Crusade. I know what you’re thinking. The Leeroy jokes are starting to wear just the teensiest bit thin, but I have to say that even I laughed at this video. GWEEDO the Dwarf fills us in on the crippling effects of Patch 2.0, be sure to check it out below…
This add-on crisis is the WoW equivilent of Hurricane Katrina. We are in COMPLETE DEVASTATION. I have what I need to survive (and luckily some of it was built into the patch). I have been hitting curse, ui.worldofwar.net, and wowinterface.com regularly. ui.worldofwar.net seems to be showing some signs of recovery, but the other two are just hopeless. Even if somebody who had some bandwidth could setup a temporary site with patch-compatible versions of say the Top 10 most popular add-ons – like Titan, CT, Auctioneer (is it released yet?) and a few others, it would take the load off the “big three”. I’m not asking you guys to do it, but I think it would be great if you could use your soapbox to plead for somebody to do something before some of us go crazy. I’m really desperately looking for a patched version of Auction Filter Plus, but I’m not entirely sure it exists. I seem to recall finding the author’s site some time ago and there was a layer of dust on it so I think it’s a goner.
Rumors & Scuttlebutt: Holy Arthas snow-cones!!! A blog post by the propietor of WeaponMasters.com, who says he’s got an interesting project on the way: a real-life replica of the most powerful weapon in Azeroth, Frostmourne.
Drop of the Week: Finally… why did no females step up till now? MOLLY has started the Women of Warcraft, a video podcast. She gives tips, has funny stories, and talks about her adventures in Azeroth. She is very cute too. SINAFEY sends us an awesome video from the Sentinels Realm, where they did a run of Taurens invading Stormwind leaving much meat for all the tiny orphans. MORITZ reminds us that there is a Mage AddOn kinda like Necrosis, called Arcanum.
