As I’ve intimated elsewhere on this site, I’ve, been playing a lot of WoW lately. It’s a sort of nice, almost zen-like reprieve from the world every evening. Not raiding, not doing much, just picking up loot and talking with old friends. So, inconceivable even a year ago, I’m actively sweating a World of Warcraft expansion pack.
Blizzard has announced the next expansion pack for World of Warcraft. It’s titled Battle for Azeroth, and it’s once again got them Alliance and Horde folks beefing.
Well, the Demon Hunter shows no lack of raging fortitude, huh? I’ll be back for this WoW expansion, just like I’m back for all of them. (Though, I didn’t even play Warlords. I just uh, sort of bought it. But that counts on some level, right?)
Fuck, man. I bought but literally didn’t even play the last WoW expansion. And I know, I fucking know despite acknowledging that, I will still buy this one.
Nostalgia. Nostalgia all over the screen. Gorgeous nostalgia.
Amazon has assembled themselves a fucking murderer’s row of talent to develop an “ambitious” PC game. What is this game? Who knows. Am I intrigued, given the talent involved? Aye.
Woah then. Count this as something I wasn’t expecting. We’ve known for years that Blizzard was developing a new MMO. We knew that it was a bit of a troubled development. But I don’t think any of us knew it was headed towards cancellation.
Here’s either a) an incredible feat of gaming determination, b) the worst waste of time in WoW history, or both. I can’t imagine both the determination this required, and the amount of time that was burned accomplishing it. But to be fair, I generally do nothing myself and I have no cool claim to fame such as this.
