I just did the quests in Uldum including the parody of hitler, the man who killed thousands and thousands of european civilians.. and you World of Warcraft is making a parody of HITLER?!

How far will this go? are you gona make a parody of Breivik soon or perhaps Stalin? I suggest removing that foul parody this instant and giving us a real story line except for this Parody of Murderers. I hope i am not offending any norwegian here as i understand your pain of this horrid man.. but you can believe me that hitler was 10 times worse!

I haven't even seen the movie and even I know it's a Indiana Jones reference.

Actually the parody is not of Hitler it's about the Germans in Indiana Jones.

Are you seriously trying to say that Blizzard is parodying evil people. If they really wanted to parody real life people in Uldum they'd have put a cave with a man hiding in it, called Osama.

I don't see any Jack the Ripper references.
Or the Yorkshire Ripper
Or Harold Shipman.

My goodness !
My palm even refuses to face me !

This entire discussion has been done before, to great extend.

Firstly what Raiju links.

Secondly: Monty Python (Northern Minehead By-Elections), Spring Time for Hitler in the Producers, Hitler's somewhat parodical portrail in Inglorious Basterds, just a few examples.

He is right - there is one quest in uldum that references a movie about hitler - "Nine, nine, nine!", referencing the famous scene from inglorious basterds (I think it's that one?).


Ah fair enough :)

I haven;t actually seen Inglorius Basterds, so I assumed it was just a mocking German Reference.

Actually its more of a parody of the characters and events in Raiders but I see what you are getting at.

Seriously though, this matter was argued to death when cata was released. It is poking fun at specific parts of the film, nothing more. Throughout the game you will see obvious (or not so obvious) references to films, film stars etc that are/were favourites of Blizzard employees.

None of it is intended to be direct references to specific "atrocities" if you will.

Exactly. I didn't see anyone forced to dig their own grave before being shot in Uldum. What I saw was a chicken called Gobbles exploding.
