Thought I would share (like it's interesting ... ) my thoughts for the weekend.
Tonight one of my good friends here in Oslo, who has bought an apartment at Storo (which is a city district) in Oslo, will be hosting a party. After that we'll probably head over to one of the pubs at the University of Oslo.
Tomorrow (Saturday) my sister is coming to town for a pre-party at my place.
Have a pleasent weekend everyone!

I attended the press event Blizzard hosted here in Norway for "The Burning Crusdade". Here are some of the highlights:
- Flying Mounts. There will be armored Gryphons (Alliance) and Bats (Horde) for players to use in PvP (not sure about PvE).
- Two new races. Draenei for Alliance and Blood Elfs for Horde (old news, but hey, I got a chance to see them ingame, and I must admit that Blood Elf Female looks pretty damn hawt!).
- Increase of 5-man instances. Outland will be completely different to Azeroth. There will be no more than 7 new dungeons with a crap load of "wings" for players to explore. Frank Pierce pointed out that most of these dungeons will be limited to either 5 or 10 people. The reason to decrease the raid limit from 40 to 25 is to give the players a more including role in raids. They pointed out that it is far to easy (for some classes) to be a free passenger in raids.
- Outland is gonna be massive.
The best thing was after all the chatting we got to play on laptops with characters equipped with full tier 3 epix! Quite amusing. Now that I've gotten a taste on what's to come, I'm even more excited! All in all, it was a great showcase and I had a great time
I also got a lot of cool stuff:

Thought I would let you know a bit more on one of my interests.
When it comes to video games I love the old classics, and I was very excited when I found out that one of my favourite games of all time; California Games, is getting a revamp!
For those of you who don't know, California Games was a game produced by Epyx for Commodore 64. Gamespot is reporting that a company called System 3 (wtf) will update a bunch of classics, and CF is one of 'em.
These games will be available on Wii, PSP and DS.
