We have a couple of different thought processes here at Lore Hound when it comes to fans, leaks and the ever-looming Cataclysm in World of Warcraft. We have those of us who seek out any and all information we can possibly find in the deep, dark, secret alleys of the intertubes *cough* Amatera *cough*. We have a few commenters who’ve said they’re much more purist in where they get their information — they don’t want to see or read anything that’s not officially from Blizzard.
And then there’s most of us who, like myself, fall somewhere in between that chasm. For us — the purists and semi-purists, if you will, we often forget about a huge source of information — official information — that’s already open and available for legitimate mining. And that’s the game, as it stands now.
On that note, I present to you my newest pet-project — Cataclysm Video Previews. For this inaugural episode, I’ve taken in-game footage of Goblins going about their lives in WoW. Take away from it what you will – it’s simply a mashup of quests and random goblin-esque scenes scattered about Azeroth.
Because I had a lot to work with for this episode, I also include at the end a look back at the Lost Isles footage that Blizzard released at BlizzCon 2009. If you’re purist, turn it off after that part. Because the end is scenes of the lucky people who attended BlizzCon getting a shot at playing the Goblin. The footage isn’t very clear and I couldn’t get very close to get the shots, so you don’t see much beyond a goblin running through a tropical setting. But for some of you, that may still be too much – so shield those eyes!
And check back for more. Next up – the Worgen.
