I've been playing on my PS3 for months now and feeling awesome about it without even thinking about WoW. I was able to finally step away from it for my longest absence so far and have felt no desire to return. I even laughed about it a little, wondering how I got so caught up in that game. I had my account active still, simply to take part in the holiday stuff since I find that fun every year. I'd log on for my hour a night, do the holiday daily quests, chat a little with some old friends but then I'd be done with it.
I heard Cataclysm was being released and I've been keeping up with it on mmo-champion out of curiosity. I thought it all sounded great, but still no desire to return. The Worgen interested me but then I reminded myself that I had nobody to play with since my guild had left for Starcraft 2. The changes to talents and attributes got my attention, but only because of how much they're dumbing it down for this expansion. The dark phoenix mount made my pants tighter for a few minutes but I got over it. I have my list of trophies on my PS3 I want to bang out and I've been content with that addiction since it doesn't cost me $15 a month and social time with my family.
I logged on last night, JUST TO PEEK at how the world had changed, and maybe to see a Worgen or two running around. I didn't go to bed until 2am. Seriously, f*** you Blizzard. I'm giving you the middle finger so hard right now that you might be able to see it in California. I don't know how you do it but you seem to appeal to me on an almost sexual level. I saw a DK Worgen /roar emote in front of me and I can't remember being that turned on. Not turned on as in "I want to have beastial sex with your pixels", but turned on as in "Well yes, now that you ask, I COULD see myself enjoying a constant state of pleasure running around as a Worgen and doing absolutely nothing else". The gear looks amazing. The Wrath gear looked like such garbage but now we've gone back to the flashy omg-will-you-bear-my-children gear.
I don't have time for you Blizzard, I really don't. I hear you calling me to me in that french maid/school girl uniform to come play with you, but I just can't. I get maybe an hour to myself every night and I'll be damned if I spend it on you over the mountain of unfinished PS3 games I have. My PS3 loves me, she treats me well. She's always there for me when I need her whereas you're gone on Tuesdays doing God knows what with your servers. She doesn't charge me money for her services. She looks sexy all the time and never complains about me not having enough energy.
So yes. I may have been 10 seconds from ordering you digitally last night because I needed you so badly I couldn't be bothered with driving to Best Buy. Yes, your Worgen and Dark Phoenix mounts and awesome elemental themes make me feel like I don't deserve you. I'm putting my foot down though and I am not purchasing you.
