GameSpot's Cataclysm Awakening!

GameSpot's office has encountered the Cataclysm craze!

In the past week, you might have noticed numerous World of Warcraft-related video features on the site. Our offices have been nothing but abuzz about the changes since World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, and GameSpot staff members who never thought they would return have given the game a second chance for some further exploration!

Hours before the expansion's release, GameSpot US and GameSpot UK attended the official World of Warcraft: Cataclysm launch events hosted by Blizzard in London and United States. The US launch event had performances by Tavern Band and The Artist Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain.

With nearly 1,000 people standing in line at the US location, Blizzard also humored everyone with a dance contest that featured the talented and not-so-talented. GameSpot US had the opportunity to interview Blizzard legends like J. Allen Brack and Rob Pardo.

Also, if you're a fan of Blizzard's games, you might consider a visit to its official headquarters a dream come true! You'll want to check out the studio tour we had just hours prior to the release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm! Lastly, if you're pondering a return to World of Warcraft, we have provided a then-and-now fly-through and a gear up for Cataclysm video that shares where you should go.
