Another well done cinematic by Blizzard. Can't wait!

It's pretty bare bones, you can only edit one character and the tools are pretty restrictive.

Which is funny because the characters all end up looking ridiculous. The armor is so nuts that you always end up with some crazy looking character. Why can't we look different from one another from the beginning tho?

"I'm a big scary monster! You need to come kill me, or I'll kill you! But first, let me find the tallest thing to stand on and let out that same metallic scream that every monster since Jurassic Park's T-Rex is required by law to do."

Sheesh, Blizzard. I don't know if I've grown too old for your antics, or if your ideas have been sanded down to generics from trying to please a player-base the size of a small country. Either way, this video let me down.

Jurassic Park's T-rex was a mixture of cow and chihuahua. True story. Not so sure why that one's metallic.

Deathwing has adamantium scales because in the WC2 manual it mentions that he asked some Goblin Alchemists to pimp out his scales so he could have sweet armour. I'm not sure why they needed -replacing-, but that's probably just Rule of Cool in effect. What bothers is me is that he rocked up in Stormwind and just went Raaaagh and just sat there. Stormwind will likely still be standing when Cataclysm is released, none of the City Guard will be missing and deathwing won't even have lost any hitpoints. IT IS A CRYING SHAME.

This cinematic looks really good and all, but it doesn't move me in the same way the BC or WotLK ones did. I just don't get that tingly feeling at the end. Kinda disappointing. Still getting Cataclysm CE at midnight on day one though.

See it gets me a lot more because it deals with stuff related to WarCraft 2, which is still a billion times cooler (and more nostalgic) than WarCraft III was.

Deathwing makes Illidan and Arthas look like pansies and he's OLD SCHOOL YO.

Sure, Deathwing is old school and badass, but... something about it just doesn't get me. Dunno what. The reveal trailer got me way more--when it said the words "Deathwing has returned" at the end, I got that tingly chill all over my body. But not with the intro cinematic. Might be because nothing really happens--Deathwing just flies around, shit lights on fire under him, and then he roars.

Im still always impressed by the cinematics department. You guys are right, the trailer didn't seem to have as much magic to it, but wow, it looks phenominal.

Either way I'm just excited for the changes they are implimenting. Yay for vanilla dungeon pulls! The dps tears will flow!

They have top-notch animators. No disrespect meant to those fellas.

I felt the same way. That's why I thought their cinematic from Starcraft II where they build the marine was so effective. Rather than making the big scary monster look big and scary, they took one of the smallest units in the game and made him look big and scary. Which of course makes the monsters all that much bigger and scarier by comparison.

Animation was great.

Concept is very bleh. Dragons? Really? Again with the fucking dragons. Always fucking dragons. The only time they've deviated from dragons is when they sent you into outerspace to fight the burning legion. (Oh shit you don't really do shit with the Burning Legion gotcha niggas!)

I'll play Cata, but man will I hate it(probably). Only thing left in WoW that I like is Sylvanus. Queen of the shit talk!

Also, I think low level characters look the most different. Try to find 2 level 16 characters that look alike. Now go find level 80 chars that look alike. I really wish they'd let you skin your gear and dye it and shit.

And this is exactly why they can keep with the dragons, werewolves, spacemen, or whatever the hell else they want.

The only thing I really dislike is Deathwing's lower jaw. It just looks ridiculous instead of the badass they were probably aiming for.
