Blizzard Retrospective

Having pretty much followed Blizzard since the release of Lost Vikings and then onto their other lesser known products, this video they posted looking back over the last 20 years was very interesting. So if you have a chance take a peek. Oh yes, it’s 48 minutes long, but I think it’s worth it.

They hung on in there when times were tough.

Wall of Text (WoT) warning, so grab a bucket of coffee and just forgive me the appalling grammar. There’s a joke in the first line, if you read a bit of fantasy, a cookie to the winner.

So here we are, a few days before Christmas and like a group of impatient children, we are seeking our next fix of Warhammer news, and not the limp dick stuff either, but the stuff that gives you virtual MMO wood. I honestly feel that the anticipation of something new, provides the majority of the fun, especially now that a lot of us are in a post 1.4 malaise. The buzz has ebbed away and it’s business as usual. I’ll be honest and say, I pretty much like all of what 1.4 brought to the table, bar the RvR dungeon (Thanquoul’s  Ineptitude), which I still think of as a still birth implementation (Darkness Falls my ass).

There Is A God

I can well imagine that there are people in Mythic who are currently looking at the heavens and saying “Thanks big guy, we knew you would come through for us”. Obviously Mythic will never admit this in public and will put forward a collective stony face, while uttering.

Our thoughts are with our colleagues at Blizzard during this difficult time. Those of us within MMORPG development community with lesser resources, understand the unusual feelings they must be experiencing, having dropped the ball this badly. We are here to offer the emotional support they need, just call us on 0800-Balls-Up.

Now I have more planned on this subject for tomorrow, but I want to read it through a couple more times, while actually getting some Warhammer time in.

You know what, it’s just nice to know that Blizzard are fallible as well.

EDIT: I should learn to drop even the smallest post into Word, to check for spelling mistakes.
