In all my years of covering games I don't remember a month as dry as this particular July. Big new releases? Forget about it. Probably the biggest release this month is a remake: The Last Of Us on PS4 which most of you, I suspect, have already played. So what are your plans this month?
Me? I've got a weird little project I've just started. I'm going to play World of Warcraft. Yes, I'm aware of how crazy this is.
I've never — literally never — played an MMO before. I know nothing about the Warcraft universe. I spent most of my career covering console games and was starkly aware of a massive gap in my knowledge with regards to Blizzard games. I'm attempting to rectify that.
But this is also part of a Kotaku project. I'm going to be writing about my experiences, almost like a travel journal. So stay tuned for that.
Spoiler: it's pretty crazy and I'm currently very, very confused.
What are you guys and girls planning to do this month?
