DUDE. Me? Loving PvP? What?
You know, I've never been a big PvP guy, but this? The BlizzCon WoW Tournament Stage? This is pretty damn sweet. I mean c'mon, announcers? Play-by-play? Gladiator-like cheering? I could get into this! And that's just the start...

My Problem with Varian Wrynn
As someone who "grew up" as Alliance,
(shown here in his old digs at Stormwind Keep) was something of a fixture in the Alliance and generally his storyline, quests and dialog seemed to be pretty well-written. Aside from that, many of us appreciated how awesome he was when we first saw him fighting off the
Onyxia's Elite Guard
that were hiding in the keep, surrounding Bolvar.
These days, we're looking at
instead. I didn't think too much of it when Wrynn first showed up, but then I read up on his lore and I found myself rather unhappy with the general nature of the story and his background. My gut reaction was to dismiss the lore behind him as being simply
. I wouldn't have a problem with him if the story didn't have the somewhat perplexing sense of an attempted shoe-horn of a new character into WoW. I use the word perplexing because the word was used by the loquacious, frenetic and not-sa

Crossover Circus! With Prizes to Boot!
Many of you are familiar with many, many MMOs. From EverQuest to Dark Age of Camelot to The Matrix Online and everything else in between. Oh, and Warcraft! Others of us, however, are only familiar with a few, if even just one.
is hosting an Age of Conan
called the "Venture into Hyboria." To enter, you visit their forum thread and write a short back story explaining how your MMO avatar made it to Hyboria. It can be serious, funny, or silly - some of you who are more inclined to back stories and RP might get a kick out of it! One lucky grand prize winner will get a GameRigs

in an Age of Conan case!
"Age of Conan", what?! Well, sort of. The idea of the contest is that your character from your favorite MMO (WoW, DAoC, whatever!) ventures into Hyboria, a setting for Age of Conan. Think of it as a cameo appearance by your character in another game!
to the Zam.com forums. You want more prizes

What Class Do You Need? I Have One of Those!
I have a disease. My disease is terminal.
My disease is alts.
My first character was a rogue that I rolled shortly after Warcraft came out. He was, is and always will be my favorite. But then I rolled a warrior. Shortly after I rolled a druid. Then a mage showed up, and with the release of The Burning Crusade, came my shaman, who quickly became my "other" favorite, because to say "second" would suggest that I love him less than my rogue, which is untrue. Now here I am; I’ve got 3 80’s, several more in “striking range” (within 10 levels), and my warlock has begun his ascent from level one. I think there's something wrong with me.
But I’ve come to the conclusion after reading over a few profiles and seeing some other posts that I’m not the only one doing this, so I’m curious what motives others may have.
