So...World of Warcraft

Post by Kenwood on Fri Jan 23, 2009 4:37 am

I've been playing this game for like two months now. (If you call me a nerd, I will kill you! I'm the worst player out there. It just keeps me occupied when I get bored.) Anyway, there are things in the game called totems. There's one called shock, too. A shock totem.

And we once thought Shock Totem was so damn original. lol

Yeah, we know that. We actually e-mailed him just to sort of get his blessing. Shiney came up with the name. We were knocking around a bunch of names. Most were shitty, but a few we dug. Shock Totem was one that just grew on it. Shiney was like, "It just came to me. I don't know why." That is, until he remember he'd read the damn book in college. Haha.

But at that point we were pretty set on the name, so we rolled with it. You can copyright a title so we didn't need to get permission, but we figured it would be a nice gesture to see if Metzger would be okay with it. He was. So all is cool.

He said he may even submit a story at some point, so that would be cool.

Half the reason that I originally submitted to Shock Totem was because I liked the name.

I played WoW once! I was a skinner, but my computer didn't have the capacity to handle it. But now I have a new one, and my friend is always bugging me to do a trial again.

I mean, only geeks play WoW. >>

You should be writing.

Me and a co-worker were discussing the game at work on Wednesday. Our other co-worker continued to make fun of us (and she was serious; she's not nice), calling us geeks and stuff. She was doing this while fucking knitting! Laughing

Of course. But sometimes I can't write, so the game helps me think.

Edit: the game helps you not get angry at yourself for not being able to think, pretty sure it doesn't help you think. Unless you're putting a whole lot more random dance parties in your stories now.

Yeah, but I don't play the game like normal. Sometimes I just run around and climb a mountain and /love the wildlife. I definitely allows me time to think. Haha.

You play a video game so you can climb a mountain and see wildlife? scratch

You need to move out west, dood. I can do that anytime I like...

I'm a city boy! I do think it's time I move, though. The city is starting to annoy me. I need nature.

I used to do this when playing an old computer game called Myst. I'd sit for ages in a valley filled with blossom, thinking the night away. (and i live in the countryside, big time) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myst


Also...Have you read Tad Williams, Ken?

I loved Myst! I beat that one. Awesome game. I have up on Riven. Too hard for me. Haha. Exile I tried. Gave up on that one, too. Awesome games, though.

Never read Tad Williams.

I won't say a thing about you /loving the wildlife. Just know that I'm thinking it.

Move out, City Boy! You Easterners have a strange view of space. You stand too close together even when you don't have to. There are cities in the west, too, you know. We have running water and everything.

I play games to refresh a bit, too. Psychonauts makes me laugh hysterically. (PS2) It's a little bit dark and extremely bizarre, and the writing is clever.

Oh, and anybody who seriously thinks that gamers = geekdom is waaaay behind the times. Celebrities are getting Playstation 3 swag all of the time. Geeks are the new It boys and girls.
