Of RP and Vidya Gaems


OK so in addition to buying Starcraft II I have gotten back into World of Warcraft. But I am doing so with a twist! A roleplaying twist, to be precise.

No, I'm not going to go on an RP server and game there. I've tried that before, it just didn't work.

But what I do intend to do is play the game as if I was a character playing the game. Roleplay a character playing WoW! Like, for example, play as Gumshoe from Pheonix Wright, who rolled up a Tauren character.

I know some people on my flist also play WoW, so I was wondering if any of you would like to join me in my silly RP shenanigans!

Also about Video Games!

Anyone else playing Alien Swarm? It's a four-player cooperative top-down shooter game from Valve, where you fight your way through swarms of aliens to complete mission objectives. There's eight characters to play as, divided into four classes (Officers who give a passive damage boost, Special Weapons with the big guns, Medics who heal, and Techs who hack consoles and doors), and there's something like forty unlockable weapons.

It's really fun. And the best part? It's free! 100% free. Not as a sale or promotion or whatever, just permanently and totally free on Steam.
