This weekend is all about Blizzcon for me 🙂
There has been SO much that has got me super excited so far, so much in fact that there is no way I could talk about all of it in just one blog post. Or even talk about any of it in great detail!
Here are some of my favourite things so far, though really they are merely the tip of the iceberg:
World of Warcraft: Legion
The cinematic trailer for Legion is just amazing! It’s got me so hyped for the game, but honestly I’m glad the release is a while off yet as I’m nowhere near done with WoD yet. I’m glad I made a conscious effort not to burn through the content, because now I’m perfectly happy to wait for Legion 🙂
Everything in the trailer looked awesome, but my favourite part had to me the show of respect between Lady Sylvanas and King Varian. I love seeing both sides working together and showing respect to each other, I’m really looking forward to seeing how this comes through in the gameplay.
I’ve loved the sound of all the information so far, I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in and exploring. Especially the Night Elf architecture. I’m not going to lie, I am not entirely interested in the Demon Hunter class (despite having my names reserved already) but everything else I am really looking forward to.
Heroes of the Storm:
My HotS hype is all about the new playable characters. Sure, I’m looking forward to the arena mode and the new map. But the new characters, that’s what has me really excited!
Greymane is another character I love, so I’ll be giving him a go even though I’m not sure I’ll be able to play him too well straight away. He looks incredibly interesting to play, I can’t wait to see what I can do with him 🙂
Lunara looks like a lot of fun, though I don’t think I’ll be playing her seriously. Bouncing about could get very annoying, but then again could prove very useful. Looking forward to trying her out!
Plus, I love the look of this skin:
Cho’gall? Er…no…I think Blizzard have been remarkably over optimistic about their own player base. Playing him with a buddy, sure that could work. Playing him with another player you don’t know? You won’t be making friends, as Blizz have suggested, you’ll be getting bitching and have each player blaming (and thus raging at) the other for any little thing that doesn’t go perfectly. I won’t be playing this guy, not even with people I know. Nope. But I will be looking forward to ripping into him for double kills 😉
Warcraft: The Beginning
Do I even need to say it? I am SO excited for the Warcraft movie. I mean, even if they mess everything up or it’s cheesy as hell or totally dominated by crappy CGI battle scenes, I’m still going to love it. Famous last words? I don’t think so from the look of the trailer.
The actual scenery looks absolutely amazing. I can’t wait to see it on the big screen. Even the orcs look great, which I had my doubts about. Though I still have my doubts about the female orcs, who by comparison look like humans in body paint rather than actual orcs.
So looking forward to seeing this movie!
I’ve still got so many videos to watch and so much information to check out. I’m really glad to have an idea of release dates above all else, honestly, as it means I can actually plan the breaking of my poor bank account rather than wonder.
Hope you’re all as excited at the BlizzCon news as I am! 🙂
