[MoP] Blizzard Cinematic Opening

Here it is.

»www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvYXoyxL···embedded


I am sure others have seen it (maybe even posted it, I couldnt find it on first couple pages). I have to admit, even the most bored, tired of the game, kinda over WoW vets (like myself) might give pause a moment after seeing this. Blizzard has always been exceptional at cinematic trailers and stirring juices to play something. Might be a 60 game card in my future along with this.

I completely agree. Man... I'd love to see a feature-length film of this content. They don't need big-budget actors... just extend what they are already doing for these clips.

My work computer blocks YouTube, as well as all YouTube embedded vids - but I found this:

»winfuture.de/videos/Spiele/World···895.html

The ad preceding the clip is in German, but the clip is in English. And - holy schmoly, does that make me want for September 25 to get here a LOT quicker.

Very well done, just what we've come to expect from Blizz promos. LK was my favorite, but this one is just as good to me as BC's and Cata's.

Hopefully the ingame cinematics live up to this. I was disappointed in Cata's. Great promos on TV and in the opening when you loaded the game, but no voice acting for over half of the ingame ones. None of the Uldum cinematics or characters had voices, and it was my favorite Cata zone chain. Though mostly because Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of my favorite movies. But we had to listen to Therazane's voice for Deepholm.

Kind of makes you wonder why they would even bother outsourcing a WoW movie. Not knowing the time and effort involved in these I think they could do a great job in house.

Thank you Caelharrad! It worked! That was a pretty sweet cinematic. Yes, that still shot of the human handing the orc a weapon was priceless. Nice short film.

I enjoyed that, but I am still going to stay away from this game. Not worth it.

I enjoyed it! Let me echo the comments of others about watching a series of these shorts, or even a feature film like this!

Now will it draw back former players? Who knows!

while some o' the more head strong "i ain't playing no freakin' panda, cuz pandas is for girls, an' i ain't no girl. I hate evry-thang about pandas, and they ruin my game. It won't ever be fun again. But that mount looks cool." crowd will stick to their guns, others will continue (cuz they never stopped) playing.

So pandas eh? Sounds likes fun.

I really like the cinematic - watched it on the beta last night (it's under the cinematics part on the logon screen if you're in the beta) The only fault I have with it, is it still does nothing to explain the point of this expansion! Cata had Deathwing erupting up and causing the breaking, Lich had the intro story for him, etc. What does this one do?

"Why do we fight?" dur, why are you HERE? What's the reasoning? What's the point?

Basically, it doesn't make me WANT the game, like Cata did, even though I've got it preordered.

Still looks sweet, and they are really good at making cinematics.

A horde and Ally ship were at war in uncharted waters, and landed on new found land (not to be confused with Newfoundland)

A panda monk gave em a beat down and they became interested.

Ya needs work IMO

Well, honestly after watching the video, I was like "Cool video"....but that was it. Neat video with no substance.

I have pre-purchased MoP but this is the first xpac since WoW came out that I am not choppin at the bit to play....There is not a part of me that wants to quest til 90 and grind out successive raids until the next tier...I think 6-7 years is enough of the hamster wheel. Fuck the carrot.

I have 2 characters left I havent deleted ,my main (Rogue) and my alt (warrior). I may log on for the first month but I think Im going to let my sub die out.

Considering that is all I do all day long, giving medical opinions, it wasnt meant to be one, no.
