BlizzCon 2011: "Every Time"
Posted: Tuesday October 25th, 2011 by

I really wanted this comic to be available yesterday, but I just couldn't get it completed before I had to leave for BlizzCon. Yes the nod to the PAX Prime 2011 comic is intentional and yes I understand BlizzCon has nothing to do with Mickey, but Disney Land is just down the road. So I figured you guys would give me a little room for a tangent there.

BlizzCon was an odd bag of nuts this year. Personally I'm happy about the Pandarens. But, a lot of people weren't. I walk the hardcore/casual line when it comes to Pet Combat so that's not an issue. The feeling I got from the Diablo 3 Auction House interviews were settling, so I'm more inclined to give the game a look after release, though I do still struggle mightily with the "always online" thing. And Heart of the Swarm, well... it's the Zerg. The Zerg were always my favorite faction in StarCraft. So where's the downside for me? It's the floor show itself. Yes there were things to do and the booths where you could "get into the game" were cool. But, honestly, it's all a bit same ol' same ol.

It would be the proper thing for me to suggest here how to make it better. But, I spend most of my BlizzCon time in panels and interviews; I'm not really the right person to ask. I guess I'd just like the show to be as exciting as the closing ceremonies or the StarCraft 2 finals. **shrugs** Just saying.

Fear not though. In the end, this was probably the best BlizzCon I've been to thus far.
