World of Warcraft article in Metro Vancouver


While usually my Metro duties consist of taking pictures at parties and various other fashionable events around town, I had a chance to nerd it up recently and cover the launch of the World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade expansion on Monday. The resulting article is here, in the “Power Play” section (go to page 8 of the PDF).

Things that didn’t make it into the article include the fact that apparently another reporter came by, asked a question or two, and left, and from the impression I got the poor fella didn’t know much about the game. The people in the line up seemed pleased that, by contrast, I knew my stuff about WoW. Also, I talked to one of the sales people inside (power of the press means I got to stay warm and not freeze in the lineup 🙂 ) and she was pretty amazed that people would line up for a game. She was even more amazed that my girlfriend is a way better player than I am. Or that my girlfriend even plays the game. Or, let’s be honest, that I have a girlfriend. 🙂
