You there! Little orc! What day is this? Well, it’s Feedback day, sir! Why, that it is! Take this nickel and go down to the G4 store and pick me out the World of Warcraft-iest Feedback in the window! And ... scene. Please, no standing ovation necessary. Sit. Sit. So as you probably know by now, this week’s episode of your favorite weekly web show devoted to all things gaming is a particularly special one. Not only did our own Adam Sessler, Morgan Webb, and Leah Jackson get together to talk about the hotly anticipated release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm (and some of the week’s other big news), but they were also joined by two very special guests: Blizzard lead designers Alex Afrasiabi and Tom Chilton. Because if you’re going to talk WoW, you might as well go to the source. Or, have the source come to you.
- Microsoft has launched Xbox Live Rewards, which gives Xbox 360 users points for making purchases on the Xbox Live Marketplace. Real incentive or real waste of money?
- Electronic Arts says it has no plans to buy Rock Band developer Harmonix. When a mega publisher like EA shows hesitation in terms of acquiring such an established developer, what does that say about that developer and its genre of choice (in this case, music games)?
- World of Warcraft: Cataclysm has arrived, and we throw as many questions as possible at the Blizzard fellas to find out everything we can about the game’s development, release, and future.
Feedback: No witty one liner. Writer busy leveling up his Night Elf.
