The South Park World of Warcraft episode.

In case you missed it the other night.

Update: It seems the “Sword of a Thousand Truths” used in the show is an actual in-game weapon better known as “The Hungering Cold” and it’s a really nice one-handed Epic sword. The folks over at The Adventures of Teapot the Cat figured this out.

  1. Me and my other-half are both avid Warcraft players (Jacov on CenarionCircle).  And after about two years now we even run a fairly sizeable guild (DeepBlue).

    While i do have a life, i can certainly see how people quickly lose such to WoW.  We have several guildmates that, quite literally, are on most of their awake hours.  Most of these individuals are in university (or so they claim (i had to spend most of my time in the library’s stacks, so i only wonder the nature of their degree)).  We also have other mates that have had their Otherhalfs clamp down their “WoW Time”, often to an hour or two a night, or exclusive only to weekends.  Playing WoW certainly requires a person to have some self-control and ability to moderate rather than infatuate urges.

    I think the most alluring aspect of WoW, in addition to its awesomely engaging environment, is the community aspect.  Now that i run a guild i see this factor all the more clearer.  Without that aspect there would be no addiction for anyone, beyond the most antisocial of personalities.

  2. I too have a life…

    Rob you’re dead on here.  I actually know people that have unfortunately wasted their life away on the game.  I think moderation is the key to playing the game and having a life.

    Man that bed pan part was too much.

    How do I make no sense?  I was agreeing with you that people can quickly loose their life to the game, hense what I said above.  And I agree with on the fact that self control is important since I know people that have wasted their life.  What I are you missing here?

  4. Maybe it’s a language barrier, but i don’t see 1) how i’m dead.  Sorry, maybe i’m mildly retarded or something?  ;-]

    Help a poor soul understand.

  5. No man, “dead on”.  It a phrase.  It means something along the lines of, “You couldn’t have been more succinct or correct in your statement.”  You know, you don’t have to take things so literally.

  6. The problem with me and WoW is that I have a problem trying to keep myself playing when I just lose interest and go back to internet browsing just for no particular reason.

    Oh well, the episode of South Park kicked ass.

  7. World of Warcrack was my distaction/pastime of choice for two years,lol.  I thought the episode was lots of fun and I don’t normally enjoy South Park. I know, I know.. “how” could SEB be married to me, lol.

  8. I’ve rarely watched Southpark and know nothing (until now) about WoW.
    That episode was very educational for me as well as amusing, except for the shitting part – my vocal reaction to that was a too loud: Ah! No! and LOL

  9. Man… no love for Everquest these days.

    …  or MsPacMan.

    Everquest is to Warcraft as Centepede is to Everquest.

  10. One of the reasons I don’t play online games (anymore) is that with or without the social aspect, I know I am getting hopelessly addicted.

    Also, I don’t like to organize my real-life time around online meetings with others. I prefer it the other way around.

    Not dissing the games, but heck, there’s too much other stuff to do.

    PS: I wasn’t aware that South Park is available in full online? Not a fan of South Park either, but I was just curious about how far this was catching on in general, if you can get full episodes online so soon after…

  11. Actually, i too was wondering how they get around the copyright-addicts by publushing the full episode?  Or, is SouthPark under some other license for distribution than most other tv shows?

  12. Man I remember Starcraft, that game was the shit back in the day.  I hear they still have a lot of online players though.

  13. I hear they still have a lot of online players though.

    Yeah, and 90% seem to be Korean wink

    Its still in all the asian internet cafe’s here in Auckland. This damn town has more internet cafes than normal cafes, BTW.

    Nothing wrong with that. Gaming isn’t for everyone nor should it be. Hell I’m surprised it ever went mainstream.

    Normally full episodes aren’t available online, but they appear to be making an exception for this one.
