Peggle Says "Yo Dawg" to WoW

PopCap heard you like games.

Like this, but with less Xzibit.
Apparently PopCap's plans to insinuate itself into Blizzard's still-rather-popular online RPG have been coming along quite nicely, thank you for asking. It all started last year when PopCap released a Bejeweled add-on for World of Warcraft, allowing you to play one game while the game you're supposedly playing churns away in the background. 

If, for whatever reason, manipulating colored gems isn't how you'd prefer to be distracted from the tedious bits of Azeroth, PopCap's got your back, having today released a Peggle add-on for World of Warcraft. It's free, but it doesn't seem like a hobbled shareware version of Peggle, featuring 12 WoW-themed stages, a two-player mode, and leaderboards. Probably the most interesting feature here is the introduction of a /peggleloot command, which will award loot to the party member who scores the best Peggle shot, provided you're with friends and everyone's got the add-on installed.

I was still playing WoW when Bejeweled came out for WoW. It was the worst-best invention ever! If you know what I mean.

If WoW didn't already waste enough time.. *sigh*

I dont even know what to think of this it's kind of like them saying to the user "HEY! WHERE THE FUCK YOU THINK YOUR GOING HUH? TRYING TO GET OFF YOUR CHAIR TO USE THE BATHROOM OR MAKEA  GRILLED CHEESE? SIT YOUR ASS DOWN AND PLAY SOME DAMN PEGGLE INSTEAD WHILE YOU WAIT TO TO DO ANYTHING....DON'T TURN ME OFF!"

Edited by TwoOneFive

wierd thing is, up until yesterday, i have never seen the whole xhibit craze with the yo dawg i herd...etc. stuff. i am now enjoying the fucking shit out of this. its a like i ran into a whole entire wall of funny stuff. 


So anyways, about this article. So uh, people are so addicted to WoW, its like their whole life, therefor no longer a game to them, therefore they need games within WoW to satisfy their need for gaming? This makes no sense because if you are this addicted to WoW you're life makes no sense.
