    I just came to see what negative things Wiz had said this time. I wasn't disappointed.

    Nice work! My favorite commercial of the year is the XBox "Owen" one:



    This makes feel good about gaming!
    That is simply amazing and inclusive. Very good ad and bravo to Microsoft for making it possible.

    Blizzard used to be my favorite game developer / publisher, but nowadays, they are making games which are not attractive for me at all.

    I am writing them off until they prove me wrong by producing something I would want to play.

    Someone needs to tell Blizzard they make video games for a living. I don't know why they want to be Pixar studios or the next Di$ney so bad.....O wait NVM , i figured it out.

    If their games were as amazing as their cinematics I'd still be playing their games, they are not.

    How aobut lets not and watch them burn themselves to the ground. That way maybe a studio that actually deserves it can rise to the top.

    This was out at Blizzcon.... unsure how this is new news. Try again




    Because they put it out on their official channels today by way of, I assume, a holiday greeting. Ofc, you'd have seen that if you'd checked the date on the YT video. 



    I sense coal in someone's stocking for the BAH HUMBUG on the Friday before Christmas. :D






    So what you're saying is.... they put it out today due to all the bad press... even though it was initially run at Blizzcon. Did you not have phones... to see it?


    This may seem like blasphemy to some people but the answer to life is "42" for some of us rather than "my smartphone".

    The Blizzard we grew up with is long gone. Cool video though.

    They have some wonderful cinematics as I posted on the youtube page after downvoting as the video felt icky for what they were trying to promote. It is like they wanted to gouge out the eyes and then say "we're good, right?"

    This is what happens EVERY time BEAN COUNTERS take over a company. Cut staff and pinch pennies to produce fake profits. Then leave before the whole thing burns down. DISGUSTING!

    Makes me sad for what they used to be and aren't anymore. R.I.P. Blizzard. I loved you back in the day. Hate to see what the suits have made you into.

    There's now a hole waiting for a new unknown game company to come and fill. Now we must wait for the next chosen company to come.

    Still can't say any sentiments here ring as unexpected to me given the last decade has been a progression towards what we have now. It is interesting at least to see just how far it had to go before it finally hit the tipping point.

    This is what happens when you make the game so casual that no one wants to play. Blizzard fucked up WOW starting in WOTLK trying to make the game for everyone, making dungeons AOE fest, 10 man normal, 10 man heroic, 25 man normal and 25 man heroic and adding LFD. All this shit was not needed in any way period. So they screwed themselves. They should have went with a 10 and 20 man formula with raiding. Keep TBC heroics and the RPG aspect of TBC. No the game should not be bring Warrior tank, 3 Warrior DPS and 1 Healer any healer and have an AOE fest dungeon. It is boring as fuck and lead to what we have today. No the game should not be for everyone. This is why Blizzard and Activision are shit companies.

    I did my part by pressing unlike on the video.

    All MMO's have grinds. If you don't like to Grind then MMO's are not for you.

    Watching this feels like a punch in the gut....it actually hurts. I have loved each and every game Blizzard has put out since I came to gaming over 20 years ago. Seeing iconic faces and settings, hearing some of my most favorite voice actors, remembering my trip to BlizzCon in 2009....all of it...so bittersweet.



    My heart aches for the Blizzard of yore



    Think you hit the head with the nail here. It's definitely a punch in the gut and that is what they are trying for. Blizz/Acti has garnered a ton of backlash lately and with warrant, so this video is a very very well done executive decision to play on the emotions of players to gain "love and trust" back from those naive enough to not see through the smoke.

    I feel bad for all the players right now, it's obvious most of us have emotional ties to these games (such as myself) but all we have is a bastardized version of the company we've all loved for a very long time, it's not even the same people anymore.

    This is one abusive relationship I had to walk away from.

    As much as i have some feelings for the past and the great things that came out of Blizzard, we have to keep in mind that so many people who brought these magical experiences to us are already long gone and have moved on.

    Don't praise Blizzard, praise the people responsible for those magical experiences, the people, they have names.
