WoW Celebs: An Interview with Oscar Winner Steve Preeg - Page 5

Ten Ton Hammer: What’s your favorite part of the expansion? Did you enjoy the new content or DK stuff?

Steve: Playing a rogue, I pretty much hate the death knights.

Ten Ton Hammer: Because we’re so over-powered? [Editor’s Note: I play a death knight.]

Steve has no fondness for death knights.

Steve: They’re just unstoppable right now. You can't kill ‘em in the arenas. Ret pallys are still really annoying, but I can’t say I have any love whatsoever for the new DKs.

Basically, my favorite part is just having new content to run through with all these people that I really enjoy hanging around with. These are the same people I was with when we downed the bosses in Molten Core. It’s also a great way to stay in touch with my brother, who plays in the guild.

I mean, I met a bunch of them at BlizzCon last year and got to hang out in LA with them all.

Ten Ton Hammer: It’s like going down to your local pub, except you’re doing it online, right?

Steve: Yeah. I mean we run a Ventrillo server, and I’m talking with people in Hong Kong and the Middle East. When you’re not concentrating, we get talk with people all around the world and see what life is like for them.

Some people call us geeks for sitting in front of our computers every day, but I think it’s better than sitting in a bar getting drunk every day.

Ten Ton Hammer: Or you can sit around and watch TV all day. Pick your poison, right?

Steve: To me, it’s really interesting getting to know people all over the world. There are people that I haven’t played with for years, yet I still keep in contact with them.

Ten Ton Hammer: Would you work on a World of Warcraft movie if you had the chance?

Steve: I would imagine that Blizzard would take care of a lot of that stuff themselves. They have great art direction and have super-talented artists. Their cinematics are the best thing out there, especially in video games.

Ten Ton Hammer: So you went to BlizzCon last year?

Steve: Yup, although it was a bit difficult because of the whole ticket and lottery fiasco. If someone from Blizzard reads your website, make sure you have ‘em send me tickets this year so we don’t have to go through that again.

Ten Ton Hammer: Is there anything else you’d like to tell Ten Ton Hammer readers?

Steve: My guild’s name is “Incoming” so I have to say “Go Incoming!”

Ten Ton Hammer: Thanks for your time, Steve!

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
