Slightly less naked fapping, that's all. I've read articles of theirs where they've gotten super pumped over a coming feature, but this is the first one where I actually felt embarrassed for the person writing it.

In other news, apparently they're leaning towards not letting us pick out our new look when the new models go live? There is not enough swamp poop for that if they don't change their minds.

Funny thing is that if he'd made a post just as hyperbolic but negative, most people here would be thoughtfully stroking their neckbeards and going "hmmm, yase, that is certainly an accurate article".  awesome, for real

I don't, like, know what you guys were expecting, but WoW Insider is, like, the cheerleadiest of the Blizzard cheerleader sites.
And that author is, like, the Head Cheerleader.

When he sits down to type, it's hard to tell where his shoulders end and Blizzards hands begin.

Much of the content at WoW Insider is timely and informative, and that's why I didn't kick them off my reader a long time ago. But yeah, that guy's role seems to be writing editorials with the fanboy voice.

You can be excited and a fan both without using lines like this:

Quote
The spark is lit, Blizzard started down the path to restoring WoW. I haven't felt the vibe of a BlizzCon like this in a long time. Chris Metzen was beaming with excitement and pride yesterday, Dave Kosak could barely contain himself when talking about the lore, and the Art Panel delivered a presentation for the ages. Yesterday saw a team of game designers not defeated, not making content patches for a game that's going to die off in five years, not just biding their time until something better comes along. Yesterday we saw the full force of one of the world's greatest entertainment companies come to bear on a game that needed a helping hand.

I mean honestly, all that needs to follow that is the entire team runs out of the locker-room screaming how we are going to beat those stinking orcs.

And finally last but not least, the third thing that demonstrates Blizzard turned a new page on WoW yesterday was the new character models. We've known for a couple years these were being worked on. It's been a not-so-secret-secret, occasionally talked about, often mislead in subtle statements of unclarity. But yesterday the gloves came off and we saw what our characters will soon look like.

Amazing doesn't describe it. The transformation are astounding, they're revolutionary.

Listen, if some WoW fanboy wants to get all jazzed up over a time travel expansion because they really like the idea then I think they're goofy but FINEEEEEE.  But to call higher res character models "revolutionary" is just going too far.

I would be happy if Blizz could just stop my video card crashing during that fucked up Glowy dragon fight raid, even tho I put every setting on ULTRA LOW.

New Models my fucking arsehole.

Well, it's a new Graphics Card that should be able to handle THE SHIT outta WoW.  I personally think it's the drivers, but for some reason I can do every raid no trouble;  the minute that fucked up Dragon turns us all into Twinklies, it just shits itself.

Screen goes black for about 30-45 seconds and, I don't know if you remember, but if you don't time that fight you tend to FALL INTO A CUNTINGLY BIG FUCKING HOLE AND DIE without the chance of a res.

As others have noted, there's being a cheerleader, and then there's ... that. It wraps around from being excited about a new expansion into a creepy sort of desperation that this expansion has just got to turn shit around, that new character models are exactly what was needed to right the ship, and MARK THIS DATE DOWN, EVERYONE, EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED FOREVER.

I think it's the combination of THIS EXPANSION WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING combined with the really small list of actual goddamn features (a free 90, new models and a form of player housing at last) that really makes it extra hilarious to me.

The followers thing with the garrisons is interesting.  Seems like they're taking the interesting parts of SWTORs companion system.

That's exactly what I thought too.

Aha, I thought, they've nicked the companion shit from SWTOR.  Interesting.

Then I remembered that the Companion Shit from SWTOR was just a cunningly hidden grind and felt sad.

Wait, sending companions out to gather shit is considered the interesting part about companions?  swamp poop


edit: Oh wait, they might have personalities. Blizzard personalities, but personalities nonetheless!

Won't lie, if they make the garrison thing properly awesome, I will totally play again for at least a few months.

Hahaha, oh God. Timmy the Intern was not having a good day when he recorded that.

On the flip side, what if they have the dude who did Illidan voice them? I fucking loved how much scenery that guy chewed.  DRILLING AND WOMANLINESS

I don't think I recognized any actual union voice talent (like Cam Clarke who did like...a shitload of characters from Vanilla->WoTLK) in Cata or Pandaria. Been a while though.

Jim Cummings did well with the Lorewalker Cho voice, despite the fact I generally don't like the character.

"Normal" actors don't necessarily make for good voice actors, which I assume is what Fabricated meant. Voice actors, rather than stunt casting actor-actors. Christopher Lee probably did fine, of course, and I think it's cool they got him to do something. Most actors do adequately when given a voice to do, but by and large they have a different skill set from voice actors, what with being able to also use their faces and bodies to act and all.

Honestly, though, the voice acting in WoW is all over the place, but I actually found that sort of charming. I can laugh at poor derpy Timmy the Green Dragon or the hilariously awful screams at post-Wrathgate (aaaaaah.), I can find the ethereal boss in the Violet Hold embarrassingly hot, I can unironically enjoy all the nonsense coming out of Lord Jaraxxus' or Moroes' mouth, etc.

Wait, what ?

Really ?  I can only hope I haven't done these quests because I pride myself on Christopher Lee recognition.
