Doesn’t Something Warcraft-y Happen Today?

Oh, I kid. The big new World of Warcraft expansion, Cataclysm, comes out today, and it’s worth mentioning — not for WoW fans, since they’ve already taken off work and are playing the fucking game — but for the rest of us nerds who might be wondering where some of our nerdy friends have disappeared to or, alternately, why they’re dry-humping their computer monitors. It also gives me a chance to post this fan-made music video:

From PC Gamer:

The video
uploader Mr Zoddiak […] said “It took about a week of planning,
around 40 runs by myself to imagine the setup and route, an hour to
setup the raid of 26 people, around 2 hours of practice runs and
slight tweeks to placements, and a few real tries. What you see was
our? final go of the night. Over all, we had alot of fun.” Another
video is planned for the new year.

Honestly, I can’t think of a more entertaining use for World of Warcraft. And I definitely can’t think of a better use of Billy Joel music. (Via Gamma Squad)
