Blizzard showing they are still kings of Cinematic Cutscenes.

Also, if you are into original Warcraft 1-3 lore this is interesting.

I hate WoW, but this cinematic was just fucking awesome. Not just the gfx, music, action...but the actual events going on if you played Warcraft1-3.

Dat alternate time line.

I hear the WarCraft movie being directed by Duncan Jones (AAA director) is going to be like this but for 2 hours.

Great cinematic as usual, but honestly it has me more hyped for the movie than the expansion (which i've already purchased, months ago).

#5 Posted by parkurtommo (26515 posts) -

Yeah it was fucking awesome.

Awesome cinematic, looking forward to WoD expansion.

I hate WoW too but you know.... Once an addict, always an addict ;)

I adore their depiction of Orcs though.

Loved Wings of Liberty . My 3rd most favorite game of last gen . Such a masterpiece .

Amazing cinematic, and definitely my favorite--even better than WOTLK's, I'd say. It was just perfect.

But a launch date of November 13th... ugh. It's pretty shitty that it will have been nearly a year and three months between the release of 5.4. Absolutely no new content in more than a year.

Also, not to go off on a tangent, but as someone who's in the HoTS alpha it doesn't strike me as anything spectacular, especially compared to DOTA 2 or even League. It'll be the ideal game for Blizzard fans or those who want a MOBA where matches are relatively short, but in my opinion it's not going to be the standard of the MOBA genre like the rest of Blizzard's games are for their respective genres.

It blows me away how much better Blizzard's cinematics are not just in video games, but really all CGI entertainment.

Imagine a full 90-120 minute movie of this kind of quality (with a good story/acting of course).

#18 Posted by scottpsfan14 (3837 posts) -

It's not 60fps thou. So how can it be good?

It's a cinematics, not gameplay where 60fps actually matters :)

I never managed to like WoW, but I always adored Blizzard's cinematics. That's why I can't wait for the WoW movie.

#22 Posted by Heil68 (43490 posts) -

I love the cinematic, but dont care for the game.

#23 Edited by Motokid6 (5279 posts) -

Ugh.. If Blizzard didn't lock my account everyime I stop playing for a few months That'd be great. I gotta fucking CALL tech support. Because here's my process EVERY time I go to log into battle.net.

Password no longer works.. why I don't know.

Go to reset.. authenticator, confirmation.

The email you used does not exist.

Go to create new account.

The email you used is already in use.

Locked out for too many attempts.

Blizzard can go fuck themselves.

Am I getting hacked? Everyime I stop playing? WITH an authenticator and a RIDICULOUS password?

@RoboCopISJesus:

The expansion will mainly warcraft 1 and warcraft 2 lore not so much WC3. I might have to go back and play just for the story.

#25 Posted by Flubbbs (2974 posts) -

that was epic.. i would love to see a Blizzard CG Warcraft movie instead of the live action thats coming out

Makes ya wonder why they don't just make Moooveeeeees !

#27 Posted by uninspiredcup (7865 posts) -

Surprisingly poor compared to Mists Of Pandaria's.

Unlikely about MOBA but I still love playing it.

#29 Posted by eNT1TY (988 posts) -

Square Enix can hold its own regarding cg work/cinematics. Love Realm Reborn intro. Hell, crappy old Spirits Within still looks better than a lot of much newer and even current cg cinematics.

lol what....

The theme, the music, the art, the cgi, the story behind it, the epicness......the MoP cinematic opener was a huge filler joke in comparison...

Thematically MOP had fairly mature themes by World Of Warcrafts standards.

The entire plot line of MOP is probably the most mature of any Blizzard game to date which has mostly been immature ultra monsters.

Why do I always try WoW again after every expansion?!

I KNOW that I will get bored within a few days when I realize it's just a theme park and nothing will always be there to return to and you cannot do anything unique because there are 100 million people who have been there before you. Oh and then the worst of it all: Everyone is now an expert and you need to study every raid and high level dungeon before you even try them. Which groups to pull and what they do and all that crap. I just casually want to play that game, not study on it. Same problem as LoL. Oh and then the old ass skill system in which you get 80 skills per cIass that are a nightmare to memorize.

Wait. I said I wanted to play, that's not true. It's pointless. Maybe I should hide my wallet...

Yeah... No. Sorry.

On topic, Blizzard has always IMO made THE best CGI cinematics in the gaming industry.

Jesus tits that cinematic was badass. And I just started replaying Warcraft 3 the other day. Gonna play 2 again as well. I love the demons in Orcs & Humans, but that game is just too damn slow for me anymore. The movie damn well better be like this. It should seriously be animated by Blizzard's own guys who do the game cinematics. It has to be.

#40 Edited by nethernova (4081 posts) -

Too bad the game itself looks like shit. Why doesn't it have teh awesomez grafix!? Because PC is holding back PC! Give us games that don't have to run properly on grandma's 15 years old PC, Blizzard!!1

Anyway, I skipped Mists of Pandaria so I doubt this will get me back into WoW. It was a good run and the MMO I spent the most time with by far but it's just enough now.

Game doesn't look that bad... 720p screenshot on mid/low settings, looks so blurry. On my 1440p monitor running on ultra the game actually looks pretty awesome.

#44 Edited by RoboCopISJesus (1408 posts) -

WoW does have bad gfx, but the artistry and art-style is one of the best in the industry.

Blizz aren't really into gfx, i doubt Titan (or whatever their new MMO is called) will have good gfx either.

It is awesome, the story idea is stupid though.

I feel like I've entered yet another doctor who "timey wimey" scenario.

#46 Posted by Ballroompirate (22555 posts) -

It actually costs a crap load of money to use CGI in movies and having a movie solely be made in CGI would cost hundreds of millions. The Final Fantasy movie Spirits Within cost a good 137 million back in 2001.

Yeah i feel like they are constantly stalling with WoD and MoP, I want the meat and potatoes not this side-filler crap.

Get on with the real story, lets face the real big bads of the Warcraft Universe..... like Sargeras.

I think Blizzard talked about how Wrathion is letting Garrosh go back in time to Draenor so he can build up the Iron Horde and bring them to current-day Azeroth, so we can prepare for the impending Burning Legion invasion in our current timeline. Maybe the next expansion will be about the Burning Legion.

The production values are high. But the quality of the writing was low.

Overall, I found it boring.

Of course, Grom Hellscream is a BAMF.

That was pretty damn awesome, i love Blizzard cut scenes, i still remember the first time i saw the Starcraft intro, pure epicness. Sadly, at the end of the day, this makes me sad because...well, no Warcraft 4 :(
