World of Warcraft: Free to Play Until Level 20

Posted by Sean on July 28th, 2011

Just when I had hoped the war against shallow, repetitive gameplay was being won, Blizzard ruins everything.┬áNot satisfied with their already steely grip on the MMO industry, they’ve made World of Warcraft free to play until you hit level 20.

What does this mean for those of us who have not yet been enslaved by Blizzard’s masterpiece of psychological conditioning? Now that your first twenty hits of WoW are free, even more will fall victim to this terrible addiction. Perhaps there will be anti-Warcraft public service announcements. Clinics may be opened to treat the worst sufferers. Dark times may be ahead for the 15-25 demographic.

On the other hand, if you’re interested in trading WoW gametime for handjobs, good times are ahead.

Portal 2: Peer Review – Part 6

Seriously, let's play Portal 2.

6. “Urine?”
Big surprise, we solved some puzzles. Bigger surprise? We didn’t spend a good fifteen minutes staring at the walls in hopes of figuring it out. Yup, we really had our genius hats on for this one, right up until our enlarged genius-brain filled heads couldn’t fit through the exit door. Then we took off our genius caps and promptly realized we were still morons.
