    I am sure most World of Warcraft players are aware of the closed Beta, but in case you did miss it: Blizzard has opened the expansion, called "Burning Crusade", up for a selected crowd to try out. All selected testers got an email invitation and must download a massive 1.95 GB beta client which contains the new maps, monsters and of course gear of the new world. After download, the package uncompresses to 5.2 GB. Take a look at a few of the images from TG Daily:

    Is WoW really a good game? Never played it. Stuck to GW since it was free, and GW is great so far.

    Yeah, WoW is fun. Some people take it way to far though.
