    I was told I would miss my family... But I never miss from close range.

    Anyone who still tries to argue that Sylvanas isn't evil after reading this is truly beyond all reason and logic.

    Lol at the random Christie Golden hate. She's a decent writer. Her romance writing is, well, bad, but the rest of her writing is generally pretty good. Not much of a reason to say UGH GOLDEN WRITING KILL ME NOW MORE BAD WRITING. I'd like to see what sort of stuff people with that opinion read if Golden's hyper-standard voice is "so bad".

    Anyways, the Warcraft armor looks pretty good, which is no surprise considering it's Weta we're talking about. I figured it was just some kind of plastic/foam when I saw it in behind the scenes photos and stuff, so that was no surprise. Still looks good for being basically a bunch of plastic and model foam, almost appears metallic (the armor, at least).
    i am not the real stegblob. My blog where I review books and crap.

    No, it is not good. It is supremely sub-par writing. Anyone over the age of 14 should be able to recognize this fact.

    And yes, reading her books makes my eyes bleed.

    FINALLY Some Grey area in this conflict wooo!

    Just kidding Horde still evil, Alliance still good. Mmmm love me some grey areas Blizz and Golden, you guys sure do deliver

    And the Horde sinks further and the Alliance gets more redemption.

    Boy... what a shocker.

    OG WC3 cast will be missed.

    To be fair, Blizzard aren't exactly starved for cash. If they wanted better writers they could easily afford better writers. Though I do think Christie Golden gets too much hate thrown her way. It's not like Blizzard's own writing is amazing - even a lot of the good stuff is changed on a whim because the developers feel like shoehorning something new into the story even when it's at the cost of stuff that was established in the past.

    That costume armor from the Warcraft movie is gorgeous! And Anduin on the book cover looks funny. Sylvanas looks okay.

    The only good thing from this train wreck of a story is the fact that at least, the very least, they didn't hire Karin Travis to write this. If you guys think that I'm making this up, ask any Halo fan. Not to mention the steaming pile of shit that was Halo 4 and 5

    almost feels like there is a book coming every single month wish they could make more story in-game instead of books.

    Cue all those amazing, acknowledged, published writers lurking on MMO-C and their hatred for... well, everything.
