So what are your plans to keep yourself busy waiting for the retail of WoW?

Me, I plan to:

1) Beta Test UO: Samurai Empires (like what I see so far)
2) Play Fable for Xbox (picking it up tonight)
3) Beta Test Wish (starts december)
4) Open Beta Test of WoW

Somewhere in between I'll work and maybe leave the house once or twice.

Well, I set up the PvP joke thread of mines to show some interesting games to have fun with while the wait so if anybody wants to take a look, go ahead. I even added links to demos of certain games. (Sorry about the shameless plug, Seoman. The warlock told me to do it...cough....yeah, warlock...*runs off*)

Anyways, I might as well work on my drawing skills before another MMO tries to take over my life.

It'll be out by the end of the year. No idea exactly when but its almost a guarantee considering they have released info on their collection's edition version.

Bliz posted they are inviting more into the beta:

"These new testers will be selected from the pool of applicants from our initial signup period."

Good luck to all.

I actually just tried this.

I played two rounds and then proceeded to crush many vases with my skull for the next couple of minutes.

I'm definitely counting on WoW being more entertaining (although they are completely different genres).

I'll spend as much time as I can trying to get ahead on my homework. That way I'll be able to play WoW for a month straight when it's released or when open beta hits. I believe in the prediction that open beta will only last a few weeks.
What free time I have before 0 hour approaches goes towards wasting time on internet forums and increasing my programming skills.

I may be a bit embarrassed saying this but right after work, after getting tired of the bsing bastards in Bnet, I began to look in my room for a game to play on my PS2. I soon found my old Dance Dance Revolution dancemats and a copy of DDR Max 2. I began to play and god help me I couldn't stop despite the horrid 90s music found in bad night clubs. Now I got a cramp that hurts like **** (haven't exercised in a long time and forgot to warmup) ;_; Imagine a 21 yr old man playing DDR at 3 am in the morning. Yep, I lost my freakin mind...

You ask and you shall recieve. DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) is a game that requires you to "dance" according to how the arrows appear onscreen while listening to incredibly cheesy 90s techo.
Did I mention that its addictive? If anything, this game requires the most skill of any video game on the market. You need to have rhythm, speed, stamina and excellent feet/eye coordination to actually complete the high difficulty.

Here is a good link of videos that give you an idea how the game is played: http://www.ddrfreak.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=90266

I stumbled upon it back when I was a real hardcore player of this game. Now I can barely get pass standard ;_;

If you like DDR you also might want to check out the Eye toy groove game. It makes you dance using your arms. It'll be cool when they make a game where yu have to use the dance pad and the eyetoy.

Actually, DDR Extreme on the ps2 allows that. Personally I prefer DDR Ultramix 2 on the Xbox just for Xbox live. Hehehe to think I once hated on Microsoft. Still prefer Nintendo over all though...

I've started to play single player games in my spare time as well. Some of them are reallly fun. I've been getting into morrowind. If I can find a good GC emulator, I definitely want to try out Donkey Kong. I loved the original on the SNES. I also want to try out Mario Sunshine, because I remember Mario 64 being a blast.
