WOW on a laptop

June 17, 2008

Its not an experiment per se but I am going to install and have a go at playing WOW on my laptop over the next couple of months.

World of Warcraft has been one of our best sellers at playtime over the last couple of years and a lot of the guys who work with us have been playing it religiously.

So I had a brainwave – install WOW on my laptop, watch BB with Nikki and get some gaming done at the same time. I tried WOW once before last year but wasnt that impressed as it didnt seem that involving to start with. But that struck me as ideal if I am sat on the sofa with one eye on BB for the next few months.

So, this is the experiment – can I watch BB and level up and WOW at the same time without falling asleep or getting bored. I suspect yes but will keep you posted….
