WAAAARCRAFT! Get ready for S.T.A.L.K.E.R (finally), and much more.

I started playing World of Warcraft. Yep, finally gave in and decided to try the 30 day trial of WoW. It's not bad, the graphics looks really good leaning toward 'cartoony' looking. Final Fantasy XI is the only other MMORPG that I played for a length of time, but I've found that WoW hasn't been too hard to pick up, with some keystrokes being identical.

Today marked the launch of World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade the first expansion set for WoW, depending on where you pre-ordered from you may have been able to pick it up at 12:01 am this morning!

1up has this story about the midnight launch in Florida where 250 people showed up (out of 341 pre-orders) to be the first to run home and try out the expansion.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl has finally been given a release date of March 2007. This is stunning news because I played builds of this FPS at E3 2004, and 2005 even then sounded (and looked) awesome, and even back then was looking forward to it. Download and check out the launch trailer from THQ. With S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Command & Conquer 3, and Supreme Commander just to name a few this is going to be a great year for PC Gaming. The only downside is I'm probably definitely going to need some PC updates pretty soon, I got my eye on a sexy dual core processor. :)

Discovery Channel has some cool shows and every once in a while they run them in groups and I can catch a bunch of episodes. If you haven't seen them check out Dirty Jobs, MythBusters, and Deadliest Catch.
