I really didn't want to find myself looking forward to any games in development. My son has totally ruined that for me. His enthusiasm for the prospect of being a goblin squig herder in Warhammer Online has won me over. He's apparently had the same effect on about 6 of his friends. We're going to be a mad mob of goblins, it would seem.
How am I supposed to be jaded and cynical now? He's ruined EVERYTHING!
I might point out that he was a fan of Warhammer before this and he respects Mythic, so he's got enthusiasm to spare. I, on the other hand, know absolutely nothing about Warhammer except for having seen the miniatures in shops (including ours, as of this past week). I had been ignoring the game, and then I saw the elf videos on this site some time ago, and it planted the seed of interest, but I was determined not to care about any game that hasn't been released yet.
Having investigated the tiniest bit, though, I think he's picked the right race and class for me, so if he wants a goblin squad, I'm in. He's fun to play with, anyway.
And now we wait.
