WoW, take one.

I think it’s a good sign when you can’t wait to play a game again after spending a few hours on it last night. That’s how I’ve felt all day today; I’m forcing myself not to play :wow: until Scott gets home tonight so I don’t get sucked into it!

We came home from the store yesterday with the games and began the installation process. We didn’t check to see if a DVD version was available, which in hindsight would have been a good idea because the installation took forever with the four CDs the game came with. And, of course, my installation became corrupted after installing and patching so I had to start all over again.

“This game better be good,” I grumbled to Scott as I started the installation process on his laptop yet again.

While I installed, Scott created his character; a gnome hunter named Pinkbeard (he’s just goofing around for now with his characters!). I took my first look at the game and immediately loved the graphics, which surprised me. He started in a wintry forest area and I loved the shapes of the trees, the snow on the ground; the game just looks pretty good, as good as EQII, only stylistically different.

Scott let me have a turn with the game for a little bit and I created a Night Elf Druid named Strelia. I played around for a bit, killing boars and spiders and levelled her up to 5 last night. I haven’t had the chance to group with Scott yet as we start in different areas, but I assume we’ll be getting together sometime soon after we hit a certain level. I’ll have to read up on how this works because I knew nothing about WoW before playing it last night!

So, I’m excited to play and learn more about this game. I’m definitely looking forward to it!
