Someone’s Mom.

So for some reason (read laziness) I have left the startup tip on since it’s introduction. There are some funny ones like “There is no Cow level” but usually it’s stuff like shift click this for that…. BUT since the patch the startup tip has been turned over to MOM. No i’m getting tips like go OUTSIDE to play. And eat your vegetables. WTF? I guess this falls under the same category as the beer companies telling me not to drink and drive. But really…outside? Where the heck is that?

The actual tips read something like… “Enjoy Azeroth with your friends but remember to do things with them outside of Azeroth too.”

    You’ll want GIF animation turned on, if you normally have it turned off like I do.

    This isn’t the first time I’ve seen it though-back in my FFXI days, They used to put up similar warnings to tell you to go outside, not to forget your family, friends, and loved ones, etc.

    I think it’s kind of par for the course to smack around the folks who spend their lives in-game.

    Well, with the amount of catassing going on in the world (see, and with crazy politicians trying to blame the effects of poor parenting on video games, I wouldn’t be surprised if Blizzard just wanted to cover their butts a bit and avoid the poor publicity.
