It’s Blizzcon time again. Time to be reminded of my weak resolve, get hyped, and agonize over a wait that will surely feel infinite.
Mists of Pandaria was confirmed, as if it wasn’t already. I am done with WoW. I swear, I am. Really. I mean it. Yet… Panda… Monk…want… No, I’m done. Maybe it was the music in the trailer or the open-fist fighting styles of those pleasantly plump kungfu pandas that sucked me in and took captive my mind. I am a slave to my own desires for polish. It looks great. A zone on the back of a turtle for crying out loud!
Maybe the coolest part of the opening ceremony was watching the Diablo III and Heart of the Swearm trailers. I feel like we can piece them all together and make a real movie. I have this fear that Diablo 3 is never going to release because the day it does the world might stand still.
Blizzard DOTA looks neat. A SC2 custom map, probably. Looks legit, though, and worth checking out if they actually devote real time to making it feel stand-alone and not like a cheap custom map.
Just take my money, Blizzard. Let’s get it over with.
