Week 5/13 – Recap
Well there seemed to be a lot of things going on this past week. Especially in the Warcraft business. It had been a long week for me, lots and lots of wiping in Sunwell Plateau, and no loot to go along with it.
The lack of sleep I have been getting doesn’t help either. Maybe this week will calm down a bit, and I can catch up with some much needed nap time.
World of Warcraft:
One of the biggest news for the week was the disbanding of a well-known and respected raiding guild, Death and Taxes. They achieved 13 world first kills , and 19 US first kills. I remember watch many of their Naxx videos back in the days… They will be missed.
Aetherial Circle clears Serpentshrine Cavern with the death of Lady Vashj. This is a great accomplishment for any guild. Not only that, AC went into Mount Hyjal and one-shotted Rage Winterchill and put up a valiant effort on Anetheron. We got him down to 1% and then Lady Jaina Proudmore died! Yes… it was a very very painful way to wipe on that boss. He will definitely die next time we see him.
Death Knight talents were released briefly on WoWInsider before they were kindly asked to be taken down by Blizzard. I didn’t get a chance to see them before they were taken down, but I’m sure there are ways out there to find them. Hint Hint – Thanks to Nick S. for the heads up! There you can find other Wrath of the Lich King (WotLK) information.
Also, the third gate of the Sunwell Plateau is unlocked on the US Realms, opening a path to the final boss of the instance, Kil’jaeden.
Anime and Manga:
I stumbled upon a post by How a Girl Figures on the Anime Series, School Rumble, and got me re-watching the series all over again. Easily one of my favorite Romance/Comedy series, School Rumble got me hooked again. I even started reading the Manga, in which I caught up from beginning to the most current chapter, in about 3 days (which contributed to some of my lack of sleep that week).
Speaking of School Rumble, the third season was announced awhile ago, and their website there is a short promo video for it. You can view the video HERE.
I also watched Voices of a Distant Star for the first time. Very well done for a one-man production team to put together. Its a 25 minute short film, so if you get a chance, check it out. Beware: There is a ton of dialogue in the film.
The Philadelphia Flyers lost the the Penguins in the series 4 – 1. It was a good run for the cup. Good job guys!
