Music Makes the People Come Together
2008/11/15 at 3:53 PM
So you may not know it about me, but video games are but
of my twisted obsessions. The other big one is music--and I will always have a special spot in my heart reserved for the place where those two loves meet.
I wasn't the first kid in my school to have a Nintendo, by any means. That honor belonged to my friend Chris, who was kind enough to invite me to his house to play (at a time when
wanted to come to his house to play). We played the original Super Mario Bros. until all hours of the morning, and sure--the game was fun. I had a good time. But it was the

This is just a short one, since I don't want to spam you with blog posts too early. I did want you guys to know, though, that our sister site Allakhazam has posted some great coverage of the
WotLK Launch Event
at the Fry's Electronics in Anaheim. Tamat from Allakhazam and I got the chance to wander around and meet some of the people attending, and Tamat managed to score an interview with Jeff Kaplan, which will be posted on their news site on Friday. We got to meet a huge number of Blizzard employees (183 in all!), as well as some staffers from
, who deserve a link just for being cool.
A host of stories and interviews will be posted on the Allakhazam site over the coming days, including an exclusive interview with Jeff Kaplan, as well as interviews with some of the denizens of the line--including John Finch (the guy who camped out at the front of the line and told everyone who arrived after him that they were in line for Hello Kitty Online Adventure), and Eugene Gray (who checked out of a hospital, against doctor's orders, to stand in line).
