At Least I Have Chicken

Leeroy Jenkins changed the gaming world for the better. During a game of World Of Warcraft Ben Schulz was away from his computer reheating some KFC so he didn’t listen any of his group’s attack plans. His haphazard charge turned out to be a landmark event and it ended up spawning what is arguably the most viral video in online gaming history. It was ten years ago today, on May 11, 2005, the video of this event was uploaded to the site WarCraftMovies.com

The rest is history. At Least I Have Chicken.

Gimme Friction Baby

Gimme Friction Baby is a great game with some serious addiction potential. A review describes it this way:
