I never thought I’d ever write a post with that title but I guess life is full of surprises. In the new Wolverine game to go alongside the disapointing film, there’s a little nod to the guys at Blizzard. And when I say little, I mean it’s as subtle as a brick. In one of the caves surrounding the Weapon X Facility, there’s a rather familiar looking runeblade, sheathed in a block of ice.
Not only is this an awesome nod to WoW players and Blizzard, it also unlocks the achievement “WoW!”, with the description as “You feel cold as you examine the skeleton and read the name “Arthas” etched into the nearby sword.” At first it seems surprising to have such a non subtle reference in the game, but seeing as it’s published by Activision Blizzard, it’s far less surprising.
