Barely two months in and I have found a winner. From the great podcast/site A Casual Stroll to Mordor in their latest podcast with Lord of the Rings Online Skirmish devs, getting hit by environmental effects or geometrical boss effects in MMOs that devs love to use shall now be called:
Standing in the Poop.
The saying is even better because Merric, Goldenstar, and I are parents of small children so it hits home. Plus it’s not expletive. I can’t wait to yell in voice chat for some minstrel staring only at health bars to get out of the poop! The podcast is well worth listening to, and hopefully I will have time to comment on the super juicy bits contained in it later on.
If I weren’t real, could I sing this jolly Christmas song?
EDIT: Since I seem to be living under a rock (or in a too polite LOTRO guild), I will make this my meme for 2010, and use it every chance in-game I can get. I mean afterall, LOTRO needs to be more like WoW, right?
