Lil’ XT Reactions April 16, 2010

Not much has been said about the other virtual item that was released for sale in the Blizzard store yesterday, a new vanity pet called Lil’ XT.

That I am $10 seems pretty normal now!

While I’m not sure about the name (it makes me think of an early 80s IBM PC model… but I’m like that) Lil’ XT has his own story:

Programmed with boundless energy and a child-like enthusiasm, Lil’ XT, the mini-Deconstructor, awaits adoption by a capable and adventurous parent.  Despite his diminutive size, Lil’ XT can still fracture the ground beneath his feet with his tiny tympanic tantrums that discharge massive amounts of electricity into the air.

So he is another pet that provides some entertainment.  And he seems to be getting his own response out in the world.

Well, I guess if you bought Lil’s XT, you probably wanted to get some attention.

Ten dollars is a small price to pay for the destruction of one of those trains.

For those of you who firmly believe that whole “seen and not heard” business badly needs to apply to Lil XT, I give you (via Renata):

it’s a bug – the sounds it makes use the same radius/volume as the raid boss – and as a result, you CAN HEAR IT FROM THREE STREETS AWAY GARRRRRGHGHGH

I had the chance to hear it, courtesy YouTube. Now I know why @Kevin’s link is so vitally important. More annoying than a Dalek.
