Blates will be WoW wacky racers...

After the crap that was SC2 & D3, with their insistence on using the WoW engine for everything, I really, really am not holding my breath that it'll be any good.

im not to sure what mazty refers to about sc2, havent bought it. but d3 was a waste of time and money, and is well worth a refund.

but anyway... im with him on the matter
they are gonna try and add some wow crap to it and it will ruin it.

but this time blizzard will launch a new IP, so the success cant piggy back off the previous titles.

Blizzard: The "Diablo 3" You played last year was just a joke.

Blizzard: Now we are releasing the real Diablo 3.

Became really excited about a sc ghost reboot after reading this, then realised it would probably be built on the cod engine .____.

"The company may be introducing Blizzard All-Stars, the League of Legends competitor that was originally called "Blizzard DOTA" until Valve took the studio to court over the DOTA name."

There are several things wrong in this sentence.

Blizzard took Valve to court, not the other way around.

DotA never was Blizzard DotA. It was DotA All-Stars.

Blizzard DotA (now known as Blizzard All-Stars) is a SCII map.

DotA was a W3 map.

DotA 2, which Blizzard tried to sue Valve over, is a stand-alone version of DotA.

Shame, I don't feel very invigorated when I hear "Blizzard" anymore. Not like the Warcraft RTS days. Personally bought D3 expecting some good quality gaming, but got a merchant-style game instead.

SC2's always online was a real pity. SC2 has good gameplay, but I'm not always online. So I didn't get it. Only money-making failures out of Blizzard nowadays. Makes them money, but leaves us with despair.

After diablo 3, im not that excited on any of the new blizzard games.

>> It could also be the project Jay Wilson began working on after leaving the Diablo 3 team.

I bought sc2 (and i think it was sorta a mistake on my part), and after that did not bother even trying the diablo 3 beta they send me.

So, chances are their next game wont be interesting for me either. However, ive been proven wrong before, so i will wait and see.

After the disappointments that were SCII and D3 (IMO) I'm no longer excited by anything Blizzard could release. Whatever they plan on selling I'm not buying.

I don't get excited over games anymore. I was disappointed too many times in the past for games that I was excited for. So, I just wait for the review and see what the "test subject" say and decide from there if I want to buy it or just wait for it.

Can't decide if it's just an side effect of growing older and more cynical, or if games these last few years have just generally sucked more.

Either way, I certainly don't care about 99% of the games I hear about these days. I could use this opportunity to rant about how consoles strangled the games industry anyway (think of all the cool ideas we were promised in tech demos over the years which couldn't come to be because they were unsupported/too power-hungry for the crappy old current-gen consoles) but that wouldn't entirely apply as we are seeing an interesting resurgence in smaller, 'simpler' games which prove quite enjoyable.

I don't know, it just seems like there's too much generic crap out there now.

Dont care what it is I wont touch it with a 10 foot pole until it has been released and out on the market for a few months.

I want to make sure plenty of professional and user reviews hit the web about whatever it is.

Blizzard has completely lost my trust in them any more. Diablo 3 was the last pre order I ever make from Blizzard.

Agree'd. Let all the suckers buy it first and wait for the complaints/praises a month or two after release.

I know someone inside Blizzard and got the lowdown.... it's titled "Real Money Auction House 2". It's a great game where you give them money and get a popup that says "You Win!!!".

Soda-88I hope you are joking. SC2 crap? Using WoW engine for everything? My brain is hurting right now.


Considering the advances made in the RTS genre since 1998, Blizzard completely forgets all of it and just makes a slightly improved version of a very dated game. I don't care how many pro-competitions there are, it's a very dated RTS when compared to the likes of Sup Com & DoW.

You do realise that they just modify the WoW engine for every game they make hence why the shaders are identical? Or do you think it's just coincidence that WoW, SC2 & D3 all have the same dull textured look & piss-poor performance? Maybe your brain is hurting from a lack of use ;)

I put thousands of hours into WoW, and gave D3 and SC2 a try, but the other posters are correct in that Blizzard has definitely lost the magic of pre-Activision Blizzard. They've gone from a company where you can count on quality to we'll need to try it first before buying.

At this point as far as I'm concerned they should either go back to the pre-Activistion strategies, or they can go into movie making and books. At least their pre-rendered trailers are still amazing. I'd happily pay for a movie ticket to see a full length movie like the SC2 exp or MoP trailers.

I'm starting not to care about the games Blizzard makes anymore. My only interest in that company is because whatever small movement they make, creates huge tidal waves in the gaming communities.

Blizzard just doesn't speak to me as a gamer, much like Apple doesn't speak to me as a tech junkie.

Well Blizzard certainly needs a breath of fresh air after the Diablo III debacle... But Diablo was never their game anyway (Blizzard North walked away after D2) so I am intrigued by this new title, altho , as someone said already, I wont be making a pre-purchase on their games any time soon. I want to see how good the game is first.
