anyone else find it ever so slightly ironic that an expansion mainly centered around reigniting the conflict between the horde and the alliance features a cinematic that shows the slightest amount of teamwork? cause i sure do
I liked it. It was a breath of fresh air relative to the previous "big bad boss you're gonna have to fight" cinematics.Kudos Blizz.
I don't know if this is just me, but, this feels incredibly nostalgic, being warcraft 3 the first Blizzard game I ever played.The feel of the two fighting even though the conditions (lost and faced with a unknown foe, like warcraft 3) made me have goosebumps throughout the entire lenght of th video!Loved it, by far the best one WoW cinematic!
Why do we fight ?.. coz " My will is not my own "
Great CGI from Blizzard as always!
Anyone complaining about the Pandas are just using it as a smokescreen for something to complain about. Bottom line is that this Expac is what WoW is all about. Humans vs. Orcs. Horde vs. Alliance. If you can't love that, then why have you been playing?
Stupid work filters preventing me from seeing! :'""(
Se paso, buenisimo el video.Ya falta poco.
That has to be the best cinematic that Blizzard has put out for WoW, ever. Definitely enjoyed the injection of humor in it. Also, if that doesn't make you want to play a pandaren monk, then something is wrong with you and you should proceed to the nearest medical professional immediately. I wish Blizzard would just make a feature length Warcraft movie already. They definitely have the chops for it.
So epic! Pandas=badass!
@comment about cartoon-ish ness about it: The whole graphic base of nearly all of Blizzard's games are a non-realistic caricature of its denizens. If you are speaking about the actually physical movement and the choreography during the cinematic, then I should like to point out the extremely obvious correlations that this cinematic has to the style of Kung Fu Panda. They were going for fun in this expansion, trying to make it "lighter" but just as deep gameplay wise. Blizzard has ALWAYS had a sense of humor, and one that is hysterically close to my own. Also. I lived and taught in China for quite a number of years, and that kind of slapstick comedy is integral to their culture. That is their basic humor. So not only are they enveloping the cultural architecture and philosophy of the Far East, they are also adapting its humor and its social conventions. I for one was cracking up for most of the trailer, and agree with the comments above regarding two things: 1). This. Was. Amazing. Can't. Wait. 2). Human hands stick to orc - E.P.I.C. (Extremely Plausible In the Circumstance). Think about other instances where things like this have happened, temporary cooperation between Alliance and Horde, even in the midst of a battle they are actually fighting against each other. Consider Thassarian and Koltira both attacking the scourge first and then giving each other a rest before resuming the fighting. Nothing quite unites like a common foe, even if it is temporarily. p.s. Would also like to add the Panda nudging the...orament?... back into place was also quite funny.
Should have been booze that the human gave to the orc :D Then they all sit down and get wasted!
Even though I no longer play WoW they still make good trailers.
I loved it; awesome, funny and great. Really can't wait for the expansion.
this reminds me of a part of the japan history mentioned as the 'dark age'. it is well known for its big 'antagonist' oda nobunaga who sought to be shogun. basicly all of japan was chaos with the diffrent clans fighting each other for dominance. the funny thing is that in a corner of japan two daimyos (clan leaders) tekeda shingen and uesugi kenshin, fought each other just as intensely as the orc and the human fights in this trailer. each of them wanted to prove that they we're the single best general in japan at that time. and the only way to prove that was to defeat the other daimyo. and it HAD to be them who did it. history tells us that tekeda shingen came under attack from another clan, uesugi lend tekeda (even though they we're mortal enemies) muskets so that tekeda would be victorious, and more importantly, that he would not be defeated by someone else. i think it was the same thoughts that passed through the mind of the human when he passed the stick to the orc. (the war between tekeda and uesugi comcluded when tekeda defeated and killed uesugi, tekeda then marched for kyoto to claim the shogun title but happened to get ill on the march to kyoto and die from his illnes, which allowed nobunaga (and later tokugawa when nobunaga was murdered by akechi) to rise to power). this might not interrest most but i just found it funnny :p
