BlizzCon 2016 Predictions

As has become my tradition, I’ve put together a collection of predictions for the upcoming BlizzCon, where the owners of my soul will announce the latest big updates coming to their games.

The city of Suramar in World of Warcraft: LegionThe one difference this year is that instead of hosting my predictions on Superior Realities, I wrote them up for MMO Bro, so head on over if you want to see all the guesses I’m going to get wrong.

Coming up with predictions this time was rather challenging. We’re flying blind going into this BlizzCon — much more so than usual. Everything is up in the air. The journalist in me is enjoying the mystery, but the gamer in me is nervous about the uncertainty.

I really want to see a Diablo expansion announcement and/or a story-mode for Overwatch, but both of those things are looking pretty unlikely right now.

We’re definitely getting something for StarCraft, and that’s one franchise that can’t seem to do wrong lately, so I should be excited for that, but it’s hard to get too hyped when we have so little idea what to expect. Obviously new story will always appeal to me the most, but that’s already been all but ruled out.

Most perplexing.

New Writing: Legion Worries and Alarak Impressions

I’ve had a few more articles published at MMO Bro over the last couple weeks.

The Shattered Locus beneath Suramar in World of Warcraft: LegionFirstly, I have a piece on my early impressions of World of Warcraft’s latest expansion, and while Legion is off to a promising start so far, I’m still worried for the future. It’s pretty clear that Blizzard still isn’t learning from its mistakes — or isn’t learning the right lessons from them at any rate.

I’ve also taken a look at the new updates to StarCraft II’s co-op mode and given my impressions on Alarak as a playable commander and the surprisingly challenging new Mist Opportunities map.

Terrazine is a hell of a drug.
