New StarCraft Ghost, World of Warcraft Information 44

Posted by Zonk
from the peering-through-the-blizzard dept.
The first day of E3 has wrested loose new information from Blizzard about its newer games, and they have a page up with dedicated links to the new content. World of Warcraft is sporting new trailers, wallpaper, screenshots, and a nice look at the capture-the-flag style Warsong Gulch Battleground. Meanwhile, Gabe and Tycho have allowed Nova out of the house, giving Blizz the opportunity to put up a new Starcraft:Ghost web site. The site contains a bevy of gameplay information, including multiplayer combat, psi powers, weaponry, vehicles, wallpapers, screens, art, and trailers. Update: 05/19 08:50 GMT by Z : Gamespot has some hands-on impressions of Ghost for you to check out.

    The game that got all the Blizz fanboys in a frenzy when it was announced to be console only, something like 3 years ago. Remember this outstanding press release [megagames.com]: in order to meet our goals and deliver the outstanding gameplay experience our customers have come to expect from Blizzard products, we have decided to extend our StarCraft: Ghost development schedule through the end of 2003. The Ghost development team however, remains hard at work, and will deliver the tactical-action console game in 2004.

    Still not out, still projected to be for the GC, PS2 and Xbox; despite having a release date in 2006 (when all the new systems will be out). Backward compatibility saves the day...

    Anyone know what's going on with Blizzard these days? Blizz North lost most (all?) of their senior developers and has been silent for years. the Arena.net people are already releasing their first game, so I can only assume that Blizz North has been shuttered? The RTS team at the Irvine office hasn't announced anything since finishing WC3X. Really, all that Blizz has going now is WoW (since Ghost technically wasn't under their direct control until recently).

    The Ghost trailers on the Blizzard site are windows executables... anyone going to post a torrent of the actual videos?

    Who cares?! I mean seriously people, weren't we supposed to boycott Blizzard for what they did to our friends from the Bnetd project? Have you already forgot about it? Let me refresh your memory:

    Do you remember now? Can't we just once not be such fucking hypocrites for God's sake? Can't we just once in our lifetime be consistent in our declarations and stop giving free publicity to people whom we consider scumbags? Or are we just a bunch of little kids who bitch and moan every time we feel like to, promise to never ever buy anything from Blizzard again, only to shout "oh, shiny!" two minutes later when said Blizzard shows us another product? I hate to break it to your but a boycott until another product is released is equally pointless as a hunger protest between meals. It only makes us look like fools that we are. I bet that next time Blizzard do anything immoral they will think: "don't worry, let those damn children on Slashdot boycott us and they will buy anything the next day we release it like they did the last time, those idiots!" Am I the only one who thinks that there is something seriously fucked up with this community?

    The very end of the file is the torrent. Just cut everything before the string "d8:announce" and, presto, you'll have the torrent. Exactly how you do that is up to you. :)

    Or you can just use the torrents I extracted from the EXEs:

    Plus, for your viewing pleasure, the World of Warcraft trailers:

    The actual files are all Divx AVIs, so you'll need to be able to play those, too.
