Matthew Rossi

Matthew Rossi @MatthewWRossi — Matthew Rossi is a synapsid, perhaps descended from Cynognathus. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island, and grew up there before leaving to see the world and be mistaken for a sasquatch and/or minor singing celebrity in various locales. He currently lives and writes in Edmonton alongside his amazing and beautiful wife and their cats. He’s written three collections of speculative fiction, Things That Never Were, Bottled Demon and At Last, Atlantis. He loves playing warriors in World of Warcraft, barbarians in Diablo III, and he’s beginning to notice a pattern here.

What’s your favorite WoW memory?

I have a few memories I treasure of my time playing World of Warcraft -- proposing to my wife in Molten Core, getting Sulfuras, killing Yogg-0 for a Realm First and getting Mim's Head -- but my ultimate favorite memory is probably just spending nights hanging out around Captain Placeholder watching the sun rise while talking to my not-yet-wife because we were separated by distance, she up here in Edmonton and me down there in Seattle.

The Queue: It’s been a weird week

This Wednesday, I went in for my eye injections and I had a major panic attack. It was astonishingly debilitating and I’m just now getting back into some sort of semblance of functionality. The constant eye pain didn’t help. So that’s been my week, I hope yours was better.

Ironically, I haven’t gotten to play WoW Classic at all. My wife played some — we only got the one Virtual Ticket this year, due to financial constraints — and then retreated back into current WoW, where Hunters don’t have deadspots anymore. I’m told it seemed pretty faithful to the old game to her.

Let’s talk Blizzard games, shall we?
