I was searching for this image today, as someone tried to tell that WOW charges are ‘totally awesome’ (after I had noted that in the new star wars mmorpg, the sith in the demo video is just doing a wow warrior charge).
Mid range bet on my part? Self denial. Managed to summon some diplomacy and said that if you have ever looked like this when clicking charge
…then no, you do not think charge is totally awesome.
Maybe he does bounce in his seat each time he clicks it. If so, cool for him – I just doubt it and it reminds me of a forge essay where Ron reports “I have observed many such role-players to refer to hours of unequivocally bored and contentious play as “awesome!” given a week or two for mental editing.”
Mild buzz from it? Seems entirely plausible. Totally awesome? Mental editing seems plausible .
And anyway, the image is funny and I wanted to put it up to help preserve it – I didn’t find that many copies around the net.
