I was really hoping for Blactivision, complete with '70s blaxploitation themes.

*cue chicka-wah-wah guitar*

That's the '70s porn theme. The '70s blaxploitation theme has more 'chicka' sounds.

Side?? More like back. Orcs are drummers!

Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain has a Orc singer and would pwn the face off any GH band.

Nerd alert.

You got a great body, but your record collection sucks....

And is the tagline "We swallow your soul" already taken?

EA recently bought the rights to this slogan, so it is no longer available.

Is it just me or is it odd to see an orc on one side and Slash on the other?

I propose "Blizzavision Active" for their new premium only content which will no doubt arrive to the delight of the shareholders in early 2009.

But what I want to know is who really got fucked on the wedding night? If the "marriage" was consummated, then why do I feel so screwed.... When these mergers take place, generally speaking they profit and the consumer takes the shaft in too quickly released publications of s that are not mature enough for release .... bugs/patches etc....
