A Glimpse of The Burning Crusade

A Glimpse of The Burning Crusade - World of Warcraft -

Hasani Davis gives our first peek inside the new World of Warcraft expansion, The Burning Crusade.

After months of hype, pushed back release dates, countless banner ads, and lots of forum hype, the Burning Crusade has finally come out. Boys and girls, I won't over romanticize this and make it long winded in the beginning. I am going to cut straight to the chase and then go into detail. Okay are you ready, here we go...Burning Crusade is ...the same World of Warcraft as before, just more of it. There, I said it. You can click the minimize button and stop reading, or follow along while I start my long winded comments.

I waited in line for The Burning Crusade at 12 am on January 16th. Yes, I was one of many gamer geeks to get their copy that night. I even had the next four days off work, so I had plenty of time to sit back and get into Outland. It is funny putting faces to the many types of people that play WOW. Most of the crowds at the store that night were typical gamers. You could even pick out the "hard core" players based on how similar they looked to the South Park incarnations. A few others in the crowd didn't fit the bill at all. There were a few older players, even one old enough to be my dad, a guy very much into hip-hop, and about five female gamers as well. After listening to various stories from the people I was in line with, I asked the crowd what they wanted out of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. Answers came back varied, but after one person said "more fun" they all agreed they wanted more "fun" out of this expansion. Having myself played MMOs for the past 15 years wanted a little more "fun" out of the game as well. Here was my chance, I stepped up in line and got my copy and raced to my car to get home for the install.
