Blizzcon 2017 Wrap-up
Its a Mash Those Buttons team-up! WoW! Talk!, The Tauren & the Goblin, and Watchpoint Radio all come together to talk about all the news from Blizzcon 2017! Jarret from WPR joins Nick, Rei, and Eric from WoW! Talk! to discuss Hanzo and Alexstraza coming to Heroes of the Storm! Nick thinks that the end of the cinematic is the beginning of Destiny 2 characters coming, but Jarret disagrees. Then, they discuss the new Kobolds and Catacombs expansion for Hearthstone, and Nick praises Ben Brode’s presentation during the opening ceremony.
Then, Jarret talks about Overwatch’s new hero Moira. He doesn’t think she’s a good addition to the game. They also discuss the Reinhardt cinematic which was good. The best part of Overwatch however was Blizzardworld, a theme park map which Jarret did not care for because it was a payload map, but otherwise has a ton of flavor and is awesome for any Blizzard fan to experience. Nick then interviews Bob from Watchpoint Radio who is on-site at Blizzcon to talk about playing Moira on the showfloor and the various people he met at Blizzcon.
Finally, the gang talks about World of Warcraft’s newest expansion, Battle for Azeroth. Everyone gushes over the cinematic, which may well be the best cinematic Blizzard has ever put out. Nick brings up Classic Wow, and Nick and Jarret get into an argument about whether WoW or Overwatch is currently making Blizzard more money. Then the gang runs through the new features coming in Battle for Azeroth which is going to be exciting. FInally, Nick interviews Katie from The Tauren & the Goblin who was at Blizzcon to talk about the giant diorama onsite and the panels and craziness of Blizzcon.
