Few people in their right mind thought Blizzard was going to announce something spectacular at BlizzCon 2010. Yes, we all wanted to hear about the new MMOG or the upcoming expansion to StarCraft II. Hell, even a release date for Diablo III would have been considered huge. But, most of us knew it’d be a down year.
Blizzard, for the second time since launching the “Big Three,” will be releasing two video games in a year. Cataclysm is just over a month away, which means everyone at the company is putting in extra hours to finish it up. I don’t want to sound like I am giving Blizzard a free pass for not announcing something major, I did call the opening “underwhelming,” I just don’t think the company should be expected to blow us away every convention.
Before diving into what announcements the company did make at the Opening Ceremony, that being the Demon Hunter and PvP battle arena revelations for Diablo III, VP of Creative Chris Metzen spent some time discussing the power of words. Specifically, he honed in on a word that the BlizzCon community owns: Geek.
