You wanna see wrath?! Lich King sells 2.8 million copies in 24 hours

Blizzard announced today that World of Warcraft's second expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, sold a paltry 2.8 million units in its first 24 hours. That's only 400,000 more units than Burning Crusade did on its launch day. We're guessing Activision is completely regretting that whole merger now,...

Joystiq at the Wrath of the Lich King launch: Southern California

While it might be Launch of the Glitch King (how many writers are hoping and praying they get to use that pun in the next few days?) over on the East Coast, the West Coast launch in Southern California is pretty much going off without a Lich.

Joystiq at the Wrath of the Lich King launch: San Francisco

There were cosplayers; there were dancers; there were face painters; there were ......

Our World of Warcraft friends (some of whom may or may not work as professional WoW bloggers) have been prodding us incessantly to remind us that (a) Wrath of the Lich King is coming out worldwide on November 13 and (b) Europe is hours ahead of North America.
