So it’s looking like 2016 is going to be a big year for WarCraft & World of WarCraft. With a the movie finally coming out and also releasing the new DLC Legion that same year..

The movie is has been in the works for years now. Going through different directors, screen writers, Blizzard not liking the story and or lay out. The list goes on. But it like they finally got their business together.

An interview with Duncan Jones from BBC. Jones said:

“They’ve been trying to make this film for a long time,” he tells the BBC down the line from Los Angeles.

“When I came in I pitched what I thought it should be: essentially a war story where the story is told from both sides and both sides can be empathised with – and that is the film that we made.”

“The gaming audience spends huge amounts of time in those worlds. They know them backwards and they have a unique perspective because not everyone does the same thing.

“So the challenge is to find a way to pull together those elements that means something to everyone.”

But the director also knows he can’t just rely on the support of hardcore gamers at the box office. Warcraft has to work for people who’ve never ventured into the world of online role-play.

“There’s a huge fanbase for this game but it would be wrong to assume they are all going to turn up.

“There needs to be a broader audience. I don’t think the film would be as good if you were filling it with in-jokes and storylines that assumed too much knowledge.”

I like what they are going… But I almost wish they just made the whole thing CG. I mean if you watch the World of Warcraft: Legion Cinematic Trailer. It’s beautifully done and can easily be made into a movie. Not that I bashing the mix of live action and CG. But when your movie is about 80% CG, might as well go all the way.

Now World of Warcraft: Legion DLC looks great. I’ve been slacking on the Warloads of Draenor and trying to finish it up for the years end. I loved The Burning Crusade when it came out and logged many of hours in that time. Now with Legion DLC you get:

Unlock pre-purchase perks

Get a head start on your preparations for the Legion invasion. Take advantage of early access to the new Demon Hunter hero class prior to the expansion’s release and immediately boost one character to level 100 when you pre-purchase.

Wield a mythic weapon

Arm yourself with an Artifact of immense power—a customizable weapon steeped in legend that only a hero of your caliber can master. As your character’s strength grows, hone your Artifact into an instrument capable of destroying the forces of the Burning Legion.

Join Illidan’s immortal army

Master the infernal rage of the legendary Demon Hunters of the Illidari, World of Warcraft’s newest hero class. Wreak Havoc, dispense Vengeance, and stalk your prey with Spectral Sight—then assume your demonic form to unleash a frenzy of devastating attacks.

Boost to Level 100 instantly

Join the battle ready for action. Advance a new or existing hero to level 100, then seek out other like-minded champions to stand against the demonic hordes.

Battle to Level 110

Travel to the Broken Isles in search of the Pillars of Creation, powerful relics used to shape Azeroth. Explore all-new zones as you grow in power. Traverse the shattered remnants of an ancient night elf civilization, brave the Emerald Nightmare, and descend into Helheim to face Helya, cursed ruler of the vrykul underworld.

Command the resistance

Take charge of your Order Hall, a base of operations and rallying point for heroes of your class. Strategize with your comrades, rally new recruits, and send your most trusted followers out on class-specific missions to prove your order’s might.

Legion_Box_Cover_020c_ForPR-1080x675

Now on the Sigital Deluxe Edition you get all that and:

World of Warcraft® – Illidari Felstalker Mount

Stalk the invading forces of the Burning Legion from atop their very own hounds of war with the Illidari Felstalker. Purloined from the Dread Kennels of the Legion’s High Houndmaster, these demonic beasts are eager to turn the tides against their former masters.

World of Warcraft Nibbles Pet

After a long day of demon slaying, summon Nibbles—a delightfully demented companion—to keep you warm by the fel fire.

Heroes of the Storm™ Felstalker Mount

Charge down the lanes of the Nexus on the back of a fierce Felstalker mount. Fitted with fangs, spikes, and everything nice, this mount is prepped and ready to take the fight to your opponents—and it includes three different skin variants.

StarCraft® II Portraits

Take back Aiur in style with psionic-infused portraits of Illidan and Gul’dan.

Diablo® III Wings of the Betrayer

Equip Illidan’s wings and strike terror into the hearts of demons everywhere as you charge across the battlefields of Sanctuary.

Destiny: The Taken King

So in between WoW, Skyrim, Diablo III and a little CoD. I play this little game called Destiny. There is a new expansion coming out called The Taken King and it looks amazing! I did read that they were taking Peter Dinklage off as the ghost companion and putting Nolan North on. Personally I love Peter as the ghost and saw no problem with him.. What is funny now!

So in between WoW, Skyrim, Diablo III and a little CoD. I play this little game called Destiny. There is a new expansion coming out called The Taken King and it looks amazing! I did read that they were taking Peter Dinklage off as the ghost companion and putting Nolan North on. Personally I love Peter as the ghost and saw no problem with him.. What is funny now! I found an interview about some of the game changes and this was said:

Polygon published this video comparing dozens of Ghost’s lines delivered by Dinklage and North, courtesy of the massive prep patch delivered to Destiny players yesterday. I wasn’t prepared to ever admit this, but I prefer good ole’ Dinklebot. By a significant margin.

HAHA oops! Anywho, I was going to post about whats new in the The Taken King:

Oryx-Kings-Fall-raid

POWERFUL NEW ABILITIES:

To battle back the Darkness and the Taken army, players will get brand new subclasses with new supers. Warlocks will now harness the power of an electric storm, Hunters will carve a bow formed from gravitational void energy, and Titans will summon a flaming hammer that can sear their adversaries from a range or deliver a devastating melee impact.

NEW CAMPAIGN:

A massive Hive Dreadnaught ship looms in the rings of Saturn. Oryx, The Taken King has arrived in our solar system, bringing with him a corrupted army to exact revenge on the Guardians who destroyed his son Crota, and to consume our worlds. Arm yourself with newfound abilities, weapons, and gear. Defeat the Taken hordes. Make your way aboard the Dreadnaught, and face Oryx himself within his inner sanctum.

NEW ACTIVITIES & REWARDS:

Adventure through new Strikes featuring powerful bosses, follow more questlines that lead to powerful, new gear and brave the next major Raid to test six-player Fireteams.

Continue leveling in Destiny and fill your arsenal with brand new weapons and armor. Find and collect new, powerful Exotics.

I guess there is a legendary edition that includes:

  • The Taken King
  • Destiny
  • Expansion I: The Dark Below
  • Expansion II: House of Wolves

Personally I can’t wait till the game comes out and get the fireteam together 🙂 I just hope they figure out the Dinklage/North problem out soon. Because I rather like Dinklage as the ghost.

Blizzard confirmed that patch 2.2.0 for Diablo III will bring new item sets to the game. New sets are Wrath of the Wastes and Unhallowed Essence, Delsere’s Magnum Opus.

Devs have hinted that four of the existing item sets will also receive an update in the patch. But Blizzard didn’t mention the names of said four items.

8X1SAYH7GNM91415210661931

“Tyvalir: The new sets – including Delsere’s Magnum Opus, Wrath of the Wastes and Unhallowed Essence – are currently planned to arrive in patch 2.2.0, along with updates to existing 4 piece sets. While this could change depending on a variety of factors, and while we don’t have a date to announce yet for that patch, the plan is for all of these to arrive at around the same time.

First Look: Season 2

Season 1 has been a great opportunity for us to introduce new gameplay mechanics to Diablo III, and we explored adding new challenges and content for you to tackle. We learned a lot from our first Season, and today, we’ve got some details on our next Season to share that reflect on those lessons.

New Season, New Stuff!

As we mentioned when we first introduced Seasons, plenty of new items and rewards are coming with Season 2. But that’s not all! Patch 2.1.2 will introduce new features that will certainly have an impact on your Seasonal experience.

For now, let’s focus on what the Season itself is introducing and go over what you can expect from the first day of Season 2.

New Seasonal Legendaries

As we announced with our very first Season preview, we’ll be introducing several new Legendary items with each Season. What would a Season preview be without a look at of a few of these upcoming goodies?

Just a few examples of upcoming Seasonal Legendaries!

Note that some of the new items we’re implementing are previously-existing Legendary items that lacked powerful, game changing affixes. As we add affixes to them and they become Seasonal Legendaries, these items will no longer drop in non-Seasonal games. Once the Season ends, these items will roll over to the regular loot pool for all game types, complete with their shiny new Legendary affix!”

~Nevalistis 11/7/2014 (http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/16607841)

Blizzard have yet to announce a release date for the patch… But updates to the item sets will take place at the same time. The possibility of the patch may not be released in Season 2 is rather high. The season 1 of Diablo III will come to an end on February 3rd. But like most gaming updates, this might get pushed back.

I also posted a new game play video earlier today. It’s an older video and meant to posted it earlier. But with holidays & being sick for the past couple of weeks a lot of things were pushed back 😦 Even some of the podcast were missed or pushed but because of this. HATE the flu! Anywho, enjoy the video!!
