Every year, I make the epic trek to the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California for Blizzard Entertainment’s much-beloved Blizzcon event. It’s one of the biggest gaming events of the year — and being a level 80 blood elf hunter, I had to go check out what Blizzard has in store for Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, and (my fave) World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Diablo fans got a sneak peek at Demon Hunter, the final class for Diablo 3’s launch, WoW fans got to check out a near-final build of the Cataclysm expansion pack, and Starcraft 2 maniacs got to play four different Blizzard-crafted custom maps. In addition to the gameplay, contests, and developer panels, none other than the world’s most epic rock band closed out the show: Tenacious D!
Overall, it was an incredible experience — I can’t wait to see what Blizzard has in store for us next year — but in the mean time, check out my recap of this year’s Blizzcon!
