Anticipation is a funny thing. I was excited for Starcraft II's release, even though I'd played the beta months before it came out and hardly won any games. Tom Senior is even hotter for DOW: Retribution after playing the beta last week. He didn't expect the tanks to be quite as giant as they were. Turns out he loves giant tanks.
Tim is usually a bonafide hype-merchant, but today he seems more concerned with wailing "Life is pain" over and over. It's a bit more disconcerting than we're used to.

The most exciting thing to happen in the UK office today? Tim got sent a WOLF! NCsoft posted it to celebrate the launch of their City of Heroes Animal Pack, launching on February 23. On closer inspection we've noticed that it's not a real wolf though. It's a toy one, leading to much sadness.
