The 8th episode of BlizzCast
, the Blizzard Podcast, rolled out just a short while ago. If the only Blizzard game you're interested in is WoW
, you'll probably be disappointed this time around, there's not much World of Warcraft
discussion. The information is very, very heavily slanted toward Starcraft II
and Diablo III
The podcast kicks off with their usual Q&A portion. The World of Warcraft
questions, answered by Tom Chilton
, were aimed at Wintergrasp and the vehicle system (specifically the lack of aerial combat). That's the full extent of the WoW
content here. That's all, folks. If WoW
is all you care about, that's the end. For those of you that are Blizzard fans in general? Jay Wilson
Game Director) and Dustin Browser (Starcraft II
Lead Designer) cover the Q&A for their respective games.
The remainder of the podcast is a Diablo III
interview with a pair of the game's developers, Julian Love (Lead Technical Artist) and Mike Nicholson (Senior Artist). If you intend to play Diablo III
, it's worth a listen. It gives some insight into the developmental process of the game, and that's probably the most interesting part of these podcasts.
