I haven’t followed Blizzard in the past, but they’re really pushing the merchandise lately. Just a week ago they unleashed World of Warcraft cups on AM/PM stores in the U.S., and this week they’ve announced WoW Monopoly.
Meanwhile, Blizzard is gearing up for the release of the Mists of Pandaria expansion some time later this year, which will bring Kung Fu pandas to WoW. I’m not one of the players accusing Blizzard of jumping the shark, but if you’re going to do it, why not ride in style on a kitchen sink, aka a pile of merchandise.
Can a popular game universe sell pretty much anything? I picked up a Sith T-Shirt at the thrift store last week for when I play SWTOR (someday soon, I hope). It’s nice, new-ish, and fashionably Sith-black.
Then I saw this snack display at the grocery today. These bright-colored little goo-globs are a little bit frightening. Crispy roast lizard or Bantha jerky would be full of protein at least and healthier for kids both young and old.
