Did anyone else get a little Titanic-y with this one? Wow Blizzard, reminds me I forgot to pre-order the collectors edition.Bravo.

This is in response to Andy O., in case the lovely comments system parks it somewhere else:That's what I came here to say. I just watched Titanic last weekend (shut up--I like that movie and I don't mind admitting it! :)) and the scene in the cinematic where the boat reared up on its end and then the front end came crashing down with a huge splash of water was almost exactly like the one in the movie. Enough that I doubt it was a coincidence. Nice job, Blizz!

Except for the part where the "escape pods" have rockets instead of being BOATS that go ON the water. Just so... goblin-y.

That's usually how large/long boats pitchpole (capsize backward). :p They go nose up over a wave, everything slides to the back, and if they don't snap in half from being too long, they sink that way. Not really a Titanic thing, but a bad boat design thing.

The escape pods also have a critical design flaw; they can't be opened from the inside.

You missed the part about the people locked belowdecks. On the Titanic it was the third-class passengers, but here it was slaves, apparently.
