Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in!

Memories of a dark time in my life resurfaced today. There was a time when I was a skinny, pale junkie. All I ever did was sit in a darkened, dingy room, endlessly feeding my addictions. I was off the rails. And it’s taken me years to get clean.

Yes, there was a time when I played World Of Warcraft.


The World Of Warcraft movie has been certain to happen for a while now. It’s ridiculous to think that a global gaming phenomenon like this wouldn’t be snapped up by the franchise-loving Hollywood culture at some point.

But the big news is that Sam Raimi – a favourite among geeks ever since the genius of the Evil Dead trilogy – is locked in as director!

"At its core, Warcraft is a fantastic, action-packed story," he said in his press release. "I am thrilled to work with such a dynamite production team to bring this project to the big screen."

Members of the Warcraft (including our tech & Gadgets editor) fan community are already questioning Raimi’s commitment to the Warcraft world. The burning question: “Does he have level 80?” It’s worth noting that I only ever got to level 45 – and it certainly felt like I was committed at the time! Though I’m a rubbish gamer.

Still, what happens to me when I’m sitting in the cinema watching Raimi’s glorious vision of the World Of Warcraft err… world!? Will I be able to resist?! I still have an account that is only a few clicks away from re-activation!? Worrying times.

Interesting thing I read today: The 300 Sequel is definitely happening.
