ALL OF TEH POSTS!
OK, so, after digging myself out from the mass of posts in the last 12 hours (seriously, guys, I’m very impressed), here’s a quick roundup of the blogosphere beat so far:
Mists of Pandaria Talent System
- Rades is going through the DK talent system with a fine-tooth comb.
- Kurn has a detailed analysis of the Paladin talent system
- Sunfyre’s going through the druid talent tree
- Guarded By The Light’s Miri was very impressed with her hands-on impressions of Pandaria
- The Grumpy Elf is one of the less grumpy bloggers today – he’s impressed that Blizzard listened
- The Ancient Gaming Noob might not be wild about pandas – but his daughter’s totally thrilled
- Player vs Developer is impressed by Blizzard’s panda gambit
- Azuriel of In An Age is really impressed with some of the talent possibilities
- I was really impressed by the way Blizzard is targetting underserved parts of the player population
Didn’t love it
- Forever A Noob feels neutral – he thinks the expansion could be good if it breaks us out of the endgame treadmill
- WoW Alone thinks that Blizzard has run out of inspiration
- Fel Concentration just wasn’t very impressed by any of it
- Shintar has some interesting analysis on just why the announcements made her shudder
- Divine Plea was like what? Pandas? Pokemon? Really?
- Elder Game is fascinating as always commenting on the WoW Talent tree changes from a dev’s perspective
- Nils thinks Blizzard is being ruled by focus groups . Oh, and he’s not wild about pandas either
- Chris at Game By Night thinks it’s less Mists of Pandaria, more Mists of Desperation
- I thought that the new talent system was another example of Blizzard in a war against mathematics
WoW vs SWTOR
- Syp at Bio Break thinks we’re seeing a new side of Blizzard
- I think there’s more to the “buy annual subscription, get Diablo free” deal than meets the eye
See you later today for Day 2 of Blizzcon!
