Q) Given a choice between being a zombie in the next George Romero film, a soldier in the next Michael Bay film, or a pirate in the next Pirates movie, which would you pick and why?
And if you have no idea what that means, go with this (next) one instead:
A) OK, I admit it… I have no idea. Need to spend some more time watching movies…
Q) Which would you rather see in a movie? Undead getting dispatched with great dispatch, buildings getting dispatched with great dispatch, or seagoing wooden structures getting dispatched with great dispatch?
A) Zombies are great, Buildings a bit overdone. seagoing wooden structures… That I need more of in my life, and not just in the movies… I want it in WoW!
Q) QUICK! The king of the universe is about to pay you a visit! What do you serve him for lunch?!
A) Gnomes! Errh… no, not Gnomes… ummm Elves, lots of Elves, the whole Elven kingdom… both of them, Night Elves and Blood Elves… Of course if the King of the Universe isn’t into white meat, and prefers a diet of red meat… well, there’s the whole zone of Mulgore for his finger food pleasure.
Q) And finally: Have you ever considered letting your son write a blog post? Even if it’s total gibberish?
OK, Gnome, you prefer gifts from non-bloggers, but here are a few lines from me anyway.
Couldn’t leave my favorite blog without birthday gifts, could I?
To which I say.. It’s not a preference… I luvs you all! I just didn’t want to disturb your own creative energies… luckily you have more than enough to share!
Q) You seem to have a blast every single second in the game. Is that your blog image or is it true? Are you entirely honest on your blog? Don’t you ever feel bored, pissed off or even a bit sad and lonely? If you do, how do you handle it?
A) Honest… generally. Bored… Often. Pissed off.. Frequently. Sad and lonely… don’t know if I want to admit to that one, but yes, definitely lonely on occasions.
How do I handle it?
The blog gives me an outlet to amplify the “blast” and reduce the “pissed off” by getting it out there and sharing it… or getting it off my chest.
I am frequently frustrated in game, and the various chat channels just don’t give me enough opportunities to shout:
I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it any more!
The blog on the otherhand allows me to rant in the 1,000′s of words and provide images to emphasize my anguish (as well as breaking up the walls of text).
I am lucky as I play with friends, and have been a member of a few great social raiding guilds. I often note that the random instance invite actually contains a current or ex-guildy, so that helps. The biggest frustration is when I want to play with my mates (outside of regular Fridays) and I am either the 6th, or they are already tied up… Ulduar is a curse.. lucky them!
Q) I guess there will be one day in a distant future when you’ll quit WoW. Will you keep playing MMOs or is it the end of your gaming career? Is there any other MMO – existing or upcoming – that you’d like to try out?
A) A big question, with a bigger question mark. Ultimately it will depend on my reason for quitting WoW. If I quit for real life reasons, then most likely I wont go hunting for another MMO. If something else/better comes along, ultimately I will follow my mates. I play to catch up with my long term real life friends, if they are playing something else, even Diablo (I was never a huge fan), then I would move too.
I haven’t seen anything that grabs me but I know my mates will frequently check out options. I don’t have the time to experiment, so I will just wait for the call.
Thought I would forget. I am Forsaken, we do not forget, nor do we forgive…sorry just watched the Wrathgate movie for the 800th time. That said here’s your blog gifts.
I say… lol, how could you forget… you have been listening to the gleeful chatter of Gnomes for decades in your shallow grave… and why would for forgive that?
Q) How is it looking at peoples crotches all day?
A) At times a little smelly, in a bad way, but generally it’s smelly in a nice, inspiring way. It also allows for easy upskirting, which I particularly enjoy around the female toons I run with…
It also give me an incentive to bring the mobs down onto their backs faster… thus my passion for fire… A couple of fireball to the crotch and we are all eye-to-eye!
Q) Are there some crotches you do enjoy?
A) Human females are nice, any variety of Elf.
Taurens are great, I get milk and meat (well, once I cook it!)
Q) When you fall off a very tall building does it take you longer to fall then say a Tauren?
A) Well, ultimately we all reach the same terminal velocity, it just takes Gnomes a little longer to reach that velocity. This is great for me as it allows me some extra reaction time to fmble for the Slowfall button. Unfortunately I can never catch my Dwarven mates, they drop like rocks!
Q) When a gnome goes into a Barber shop do you have to ask for those haircuts?
A) Last time I went to the Barber shop, I went looking for a Perm… what I got was a bald patch and a mohawk. I really don’t recommend messing with your hair!
Q) Gnomes seem happy all the time, Why?
A) We drink the water… it’s just water, but while water may make others want to pee excessively, it is like nitrous oxide mixed with a little Helium for Gnomes, we get high and squeaky!
Well, that’s about it for this installment of Ask da Nome a Kwestion. I still have some doozies from Prelimar and Syrana, but I will tackle them next week.
Hope you have a great weekend!
Gnomer’s Friends and Out!
