    Wow Monopoly? wtf.

    Anyone else think Blizzard releasing a Monopoly version of World of Warcraft is a Jump the shark moment?

    Nope, looking forward to Starcraft 2 Risk so I can rage at that as well.
    I have nothing against dubstep; it just wubs me the wrong way.

    Am honestly surprised it took seven years for it to come out.

    Not shocked at all. Expected. One of the biggest MMOs out there; you're damn right you'll get as much out of the cash cow that you can.

    If you want to see what over merchandising is look at Kiss, or Star Wars. Blizzard has licensed what? A handful of shirts, two board games, a few action figures, and books. I can live with it.

    I don't think this is really Blizzard jumping the shark. It's more reflective of Hasbro trying to keep the Monopoly line going. The past few years have seen a large number of themed monopoly games.

    Why not make money off the name, hell there's Monopoly for everything. We must have 10 different ones from NHL Hockey to Disney. We have Lord of Rings Risk - sell the name it's good business.

    Capitalist society is capitalist. I'm reminded of every time someone rages in trade chat about someone AH'ing stupid vendor items for 1000's of gold, or raging about a price hike.

    If you don't like it, don't buy it.

    Nothing shocking here, It's only monopoly. And there are already Monopoly Version for EVERYTHING, so I don't think there's anything wrong with a WoW Version.

    "Sell me Boardwalk, or I keel you!"--yeah, works for me...

    For me, Blizzard "jumped the shark", when they introduced goblins...even then, it was actually more like, "jumped the trout"...

    Indeed. The exploding and flying type.
