One of the oldest and most established newspapers of the world, The Times (UK), will have a free trial version of World of Warcraft on CD, plus an 8-page booklet on how to play, in its next weekend edition. They already posted an article on "My life as a bearded dwarf", written by a non-gamer. Quote: "Personally, I’ve never created a character to play a game with before — hey, I have to do that in front of the wardrobe every morning for real, and I think all the ladies will know what I’m saying here." Very interesting read.
Anyway, there goes my geek street cred. Playing World of Warcraft is now so un-geek and mainstream as anything. Even The Times does it.
