Sometimes, I wonder; Am I reading too much into something? Or was that intended?
Case in point.
Over in WoW Insider, Alex Ziebart popped out a little shorty post about the way items are named in WoW.
It was just a little something to throw out there about how some names are manly and some are just the nadir of lameness.
He goes so far as to call upon the spirits of Bruce Lee and John Wayne in his article when talking about a level 60 axe, an act I cannot forgive. Sure it’s an epic axe, and old school even, but come on. It’s Bruce Lee and John frikken Wayne for crap’s sake. If you’re gonna summon THAT kind of mojo, talk about a lengendary weapon. Or TWO. Or a Heroic Class (if we get one other than Death Knight… which some speculate Blizz may do, and are just keeping the news close to their chest right now as Warhammer and Age of Conan get closer.)
A level 60 axe? pfft. Well, to each his own I guess.
But that ain’t the point I’m going to. Nah, It was the first commenter that chimed in that made me laugh. Let me quote him or her here;
That and Ashkandi, Greatsword of the Brotherhood, plus Frostmourne… you have a winning trio of badass named weapons!
I wish WoLK give us badass named weapon as well, maybe even an Omega Weapon! (Come on, they ripped off Sephiroth, Jenova and Chocobos with the Blood Elves XD)
Now, I read that… in a comment about a post about manly and lame names, and what my brain saw was…
The Assbringer… and Asscandy.
Now, maybe it was just that I was listening to Sir Mix-a-Lot singing “Baby Got Back” this morning on the way to work. But maybe not. Ii wouldn’t have been as bad if Meira hadn’t called thenm ‘Badass’.
Is it just me? Really?
