Oct 25th 2011 2:34AM When I first saw the reveal while watching the live stream of Blizzcon, I must admit that I was a little taken back and puzzled, but I soon realized that that was because I was genuinely expecting them to stick to their same old 'mold' that they'd cast for the last few expansions.
Reveal big bad guy, build up big bad guy, unleash you into the world to kill big bad guy.
After thinking about it for only a moment, seeing all those lush areas and.. yes, even the pet battle (I grew up on Pokemon and I'm still a kid at heart) I couldn't help but be excited for it! So much so, in fact, that I signed both myself and my SO up for the annual pass without hesitation.
Reading this blog, however, I got goosebumps. Especially at the last point. The possibilities are so endless and the fact that not everything has been revealed makes it seem like Christmas all over again! I think some people forget that we're dealing with a very successful group of game-makers and story-tellers here.
