The 3rd annual Blizzcon has come and gone. I’ve been to only the 2007 Blizzcon and had somewhat of a good time there. From the news I’ve been hearing on other gaming sites and blogs, there wasn’t much news this year as last year. Seems like all the big news stories about future Blizzard titles were already unvield at previous gaming expos this year.
The only big news from Blizzcon 2008 was the Wizard class for Diablo 3. Nothing much else. I was really hoping for either a release date/quarter/year for Starcraft 2, or more news on the Warcraft live action film.
From my 2007 experience, I was able to walk the con from one end to the other in minutes. Yes, they only had 2 halls, but there wasn’t that much to do. If you wanted to try WotLK or Starcraft 2, at the time, you only got 15mins to sit and play it, then go back in line. For my 15mins with WotLK, my group was able to get to the entrance of the first instance, zone in, and wipe at the first group of mobs. After that, we were told to leave the chairs. = Either than the welcome speech and the costume contest, not much else was really THAT fun to justify the $100 price tag.
So, I ask you Blizzcon 2008 attendees. Was it worth it? Let us know in the comment section below.
