In many ways, Bioware is one of the last studios that I love and rely upon. They have made such awesome games and franchises that people adore. But lately they've been making some announcements that aren't making their fans particularly happy.

Blizzard are the undisputed kings of cinematic CGI trailers. It makes me wonder why their art team isn’t just making the World of Warcraft movie themselves. I mean, just look at how damn amazing the opening cinematic for Warlords of Draenor is.

World of Warcraft players have been starved of new content for a long time. Blizzard have been working hard on the next big expansion for their massive MMO, with Warlords of Draenor looking like a meaty cut of content. Blizzard have been hush hush on release details, but that's all going to change at an event next week.
