A tale of two trailers

Today, Blizzard released two trailers for our enjoyment.  The first, for WoW Patch 5.2.

I wanna make one observation.  The voice of the narrator is the same horrid, insulting mock-Chinese that we’ve heard elsewhere.

Not actually Chinese

Yeah, that’s them.

So George Lucas gets all sorts of hate and grief for using these stupid racial stereotypes, but Blizzard gets s free pass? Guys?

Can we move on from this crap?

Maybe this guy can report it for you when it happens.

Any comparison of Blizz's cultural aesthetic and southern states just now abolishing slavery is purely coincidental.

The other trailer is for Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm.

So, can someone tell me why Sarah Kerrigan still wears high heels into battle? Can somebody explain to me why her mutated Zerg form also has high heels? Can somebody explain to me why all the guys are wearing tank-grade armor while she’s in form-fitting catsuit armor?

Much work, still to do.

    What do you know about space combat or alien physiology? If anything, movies have shown us that you fight better in high heels

    It’s fan service plain and simple. No real excuses… that said, can’t wait for it to come out. Sc2 is one of my go to games and I’m excited for the expansion
