“Go for the eyes, Boo!” That’s a quote from Baldur’s Gate. One of the characters says it when attacking enemies. His name is Minsc, and he is a silly man with a pet hamster named Boo. The joke is that he’s telling his hamster to attack, but it’s just a hamster – and he thinks it’s a “miniature giant space hamster” too!
If you enjoyed my dry retelling even though I’m just grasping at someone else’s lightning, if you still feeling a twinge of nostalgia at the mention of characters you once adored, hey, you might be into the news that Minsc and Boo are coming to free-to-play D&D MMO Neverwinter [official site].
