With Cataclysm being released as a digital download, I guess we can say goodbye to many of the midnight release lines, eh?
Yes and no. On the one hand, if you're going for the pageantry of the release night, with all the cool events and fun going on all over the country at midnight, you won't want to miss a midnight release party. In addition, you can still only get the collector's edition of Cataclysm from retail establishments and online ordering from places like Amazon. On the other hand, yeah, the digital download will most likely just be an unlock, meaning you'll be up and running more quickly than if you ran to and from the store.
Does it feel good to finally have an answer to the most-asked question of 2010?
Yes, I'm glad that we finally know who is replacing Simon and Paula on American Idol.
How many hours will be lost during the week of Dec. 7?
A lot. In fact, get ready for the cable news media to hit everyone with the "experts" who come out to tell you how popular this new "online role playing game" phenomenon is and that the kids these days pretend to be dragons on the internet.
So yeah Mr. Queuepants Mcwearersonburg, here's a question for you, or for anyone, really. What's the first thing you're gonna do when Cataclysm is up and running on your PC? Me? I'm going to buy the old world flying stuff and cruise around to survey the damage.
I plan on destroying, or at least aggressively agitating, my server's economy using crafting materials on the auction house.
How much time do I have to get a Kingslayer title?
Probably forever, until the game shuts down. Titles usually don't go anywhere. Removing the Glory of the Raider drakes and Hand of A'dal were fairly uncommon moves by Blizzard, and titles have stayed beyond content patches in the past. Don't expect Kingslayer to go anywhere. Although I would like them to put those drakes and titles back in.
