@Bossy yes I agree, I loved DK64 and Pokemon back in the day. Half the reason I'm into RPGs is because I love collecting items, gear, pets etc. I'll definitely pick it up to check out the story and new features and who knows, maybe i'll like it so much i can get over the full-on asian theme.@robsmith77 To elaborate on that- I consider WoW to be, like most other modern RPGs, based loosely off of the Lord of the Rings and Dungeons and Dragons. Keep in mind I'm not a D&D player so there may or may not be pandas in there I'm not aware about. But when I see this not-so-serious (ie. panda monks) side of WoW rear its head, it really takes away from the epic-ness that I always loved about this game.Call me old school but I feel that if you look at Orcs & Humans all the way until now, it's become a whole new beast. I'm not saying thats necessarily a bad thing, just that I'm not personally a fan of having everything in the expansion be based off of that. Although blizzard seems to be apologizing for it now, I thought that giving all the zones in Cataclysm a very different feel avoided all monotony and really gave you the feeling that EVERYONE was in deep sh#t. So the streamlining that seems to be happening is a little scary to me. Keep in mind I am not in the beta nor have I read much on the storyline of the different zones. I just go off of what I read here and what I see in screenshots. Anyways hopefully that cleared it up for ya. I'm not opposed to change, I like the new focus on the Horde/Alliance war but some things rub me the wrong way at this point.Like I said to Bossy, though, I plan on picking up the game and giving blizz a chance to show me that the content far outweighs my issues with the theme.
