Of Journalism and Orcish Hordes

Warcraft III

Rob came over last night to recreate those good ol’ days of high school journalism class whence we found ourselves up until all hours of the night fiddling with QuarkXPress trying to wield various texts, images, and graphics into a dense, informative package. We were up pretty late but Rob paid well. He left a copy of Warcraft III here.

And it’s running on my machine. “Mortar combat!”

[Later: Despite the game being playable, I can see why Blizzard states you must have a graphics processor with at least 16 MB of video RAM. Large battles even in the lower levels of the game can make the refresh rate painstakingly sluggish. Nevertheless, I’m enjoying it thoroughly.]
