Videos: Blizzcon Trailer Trio

Another year, another Blizzcon, another three trailers for games without solid release dates. Starting off above you can see a cinematic from Diablo III, where Deckard Cain's niece Leah has a pretty nasty nightmare about Asmodan, a spider-frog with a nipple ring. For some reason, I'm not too enthused about this particular lesser evil: I guess I'm Team Belial. However there are probably a few more twists in the game itself. I mean, the game is still called Diablo, right?

After the break, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm makes the most out of Tricia Helfer's voiceover, as well as showing some of the new units that I'm sure enthusiasts have been dying to get their hands on. Or maybe dreading. I don't know what StarCraft fans are like anymore! Anyway, the story seems pretty dramatic, which has always been weird to me because outside cut-scene, the characters on the screen are so teeny-tiny, it's like a soap opera for ants.

Lastly the next World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria is basically introducing Kung-Fu Panda to the game, minus the Jack Black. Watch the video to see a glimpse of the long rumored Pandarans in action, as well as some of the new Monk-class moves. It's too bad Panda Express doesn't deliver, as that would probably be a pretty good corporate tie-in. I think it's cool that they're countering The Old Republic's Jedis and force powers with adorable chubby ninja bears, but don't know how much it will help them hold onto subscribers.

Blizzard once again showing their mastery of cinematics.
For a while there I thought the girl was an actual real person.

I kind of wish Blizzard would make a few games that focused on single characters with personalities too, rather than "All large-scale conflict! ALL THE TIME!"

I've said since Beta "Add Pandarens, and we'll get serious." Well now I'm getting serious. They look awesome.

And for the sake of argument, Pandaren monks were in Warcraft Lore well before Kung Fu Panda vomited it's way onto the screen.

After looking at some of the information they've released about the upcoming expansion, they are turning vanity pets into pokemon. You can collect them, and duel them against other players vanity pets and level them up. I for one already have a large collection of vanity pets and can't wait for this! And introducing pokemon into the MMO is definitely something I haven't read about in other MMOs so that will definitely keep them unique and ahead of the game!

Well, the Diablo3-Trailer is really really awsome, though the nipple ring confused me too;)

Starcraft 2 Trailer, well it's great too, though maybe a tiny litty bit over the dramatic edge;)

Anyway, I'll own those two games from day 1 after their release.


WoW...... I was one of the release addicts, proud owner of a version 1.0 box^^, but finally cancelled this year. And seeing this announcement.....well.... the first thing I thought was: oh my gosh, Kung Fu Panda??!! Yes I know the story of the Pandaren, I've played all Blizz titles, but I am not interested in Pandaren at all;)
WoW is much too childish-looking for me now.

It'll be GW2 then;) They even have one same-sex-loving-race;)

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
