Since I can remember, Blizzard has always inserted the odd pop culture reference or joke in either NPC names or achievements more recently, so I thought it might be interesting to discuss the effect of this stuff on the game.

Here's my take: http://runeforgegossip.wordpress.com/20 ... ea-or-nay/

Nice article!

Oddly enough I wrote my own back in January about humour in MMOs. http://blog.weflyspitfires.com/2009/01/26/humour-in-mmos/

Personally I think it's place depends on the MMO. In WoW though, it definitely works and I think the humour in one of the most attractive things about the game.

Q: How many Noobs does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: OMFG! Where do I go to get lightbulbs?

Here's my take on it:

Nice Topic. Blizzard has done an amazing job of adding humorous Easter Eggs into the game.

I wrote a post a while ago titled "The Many Flavours of WoW" that touches on the humour Blizzard adds to the flavour text they put on items.

Excellent write ups, guys!

Sorry for running across this so late, but thought I would add my 2cp on the matter as well.
