While We Were In Tokyo: Wizard on Cyborg Violence

If World of Warcraft had wizards and cyborgs it'd be way better. Actually, it probably already has cyborgs, doesn't it? Whatevs, just watch this video.

While we cast our lot with foreign lands and overseas excitement by coming to the Tokyo Game Show, don't forget that Blizzard's annual convention, BlizzCon, is also happening at the same time. We won't be there... heck, where we are, we won't even be able to order the pay-per-view coverage of the convention. But to celebrate, here is something related to World of Warcraft starring 38 Studios' Rich Gallup and Ben Coello's Ben Coello.

You may remember Rich from such roles as "our Penny Arcade Expo coverage" and Ben from hits like "the guy who drew the graphics used on our reviews pages" and Anna Nicole Smith's final film, Illegal Aliens. It's some sort of doofy video for Azeroth Advisor, some sort of WOW assistant site that 38 Studios owns.

I'll save the head-scratching over a company that's putting out its own MMO owning a site devoted to a competing product for some other time. Watch this video!

What the hell was that?!?!  Rich Gallup amuses once again for the umpteenth time.  Hiliarious even though I don't get it.  See I don't play that WOW stuff, but I get the punchline anyway... wait I thought I just said I didn't get it... Funny!  Good times.  Star wipe and onto next comment...

Posted by twosided

Man, I wonder if this idea was Rich's or if he was put up to it.  Either way... amusing to say the least.

Wait, a minute... I just realized that posting this blog probably means you all have been up and are ready to hit the TGS stuff.  Its 4am right now in Arizona.  I'll stay up for a couple hours more and refresh the GB page to catch any breaking news.

That is simultaneously the most idiotic and most awesome thing I have seen. Ever.

Rich never ceases to amaze.

Wizards totally beat Cyborgs though.
