1UP Previews WoTLK

Posted Tue, Oct 02, 2007 by Aelryn

1UP brings you to the sunny shores of Northrend.

1UP has a new article out (also appearing in the latest issue of GFW) which examines the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion for the popular World of Warcraft MMOG. Also, Chris Metzen talks briefly about some of the things they want to do differently from the Burning Crusade.

We're still playing far too much of The Burning Crusade -- but, for some reason, Blizzard vice president of creative development Chris Metzen seems to be apologizing for it. "It had a lot of high-concept ideas, high-concept environments," he says, calling to mind the psychedelic mushrooms of Zangarmarsh, the tragic majesty of Tempest Keep, "but other than some really nice moments, there was nothing really personal about it." Never mind that MMOs are inherently aloof. Try as you might, you can't really personalize "killing" Illidan for the 17th time with 24 Ventrilo voices arguing over Family Guy reruns and whether the Crystal Spire of Karabor is meant for "Shammies" or "Pallies."

Hop along over to 1UP and read the article.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
