Our good friends over at the Orange Country Register have jumped in on the fifth anniversary interview extravanganza
, and they've posted information from a short chat
with none other than Samwise Didier
, Blizzard's primary artist. They asked Samwise for a crazy memory from the last five years, and he came up with a time when he was rolling through a Pollo Loco
drive-through, and the guy behind the window called him out by name and said he "liked your show." Which show? Didier is of course the lead singer of TAFKAL80ETC
, a.k.a. The Artists Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain, Blizzard's in-house rock band. Pretty awesome that a video game artist is now literally a rock star thanks to this game.
The OC Register (don't call it that
-- did you think I'd get through a post about them without saying that?) is also looking for memories from fans as well to be printed in their paper -- you can jump in the comments on their site and share some memories of your own. We'll also be celebrating the game's fifth anniversary here on WoW.com
, so stay tuned around November 23rd for a nice look back at where this gigantic game has accomplished in the past five years.
