StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm interview with Brian Kindregan

Stealthyslyth says: At Blizzcon, I had the chance to do an interview with Brian Kindregan, Lead Writer for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. We discuss the transitioning story from Wings of Liberty to Heart of the Swarm as well as new units, continuing the story in novels, and some of his favorite characters to write banter for. It was a great time interviewing him and I can’t wait for Heart of the Swarm to be released! (soon…)

Another L for Xbox, when are they going to have good news?

MrDead63d ago

I would read the article but the giant pop-ups from the top and bottom of the screen made me close it.

Without reading $23.4 million isn't a deterrent for a company that size.

Boss: Let's fire a few people to recoup on that loss.
Slave: Cortana has decided to get rid of Arkane Austin and Tango Gameworks.
Boss: Let's get those Firing Letters "Copilot Approved" and send them through the power of the cloud.
Slave: Long Live Phil !!!
ALL in the room: LONG LIVE PHIL !!!!

Well another troll company with a patent trying to extort money out of companies. Seems like they’re going to try and sue everyone.

An Update on This Year’s BlizzCon and Blizzard’s 2024 Live Events

Blizzard writes: "After careful consideration over the last year, we at Blizzard have made the decision not to hold BlizzCon in 2024. This decision was not made lightly as BlizzCon remains a very special event for all of us, and we know many of you look forward to it. While we’re approaching this year differently and as we have explored different event formats in the past, rest assured that we are just as excited as ever to bring BlizzCon back in future years."

Diablo 4 storefront being a cash grabbing shitshow does unironically attest to that, kudos.

kythlyn84d ago

Microsoft needs to be guiding Blizzard to be what it USED to be, not allowing it to continue to be the greedy bastardization of itself that it has become.

XiNatsuDragnel85d ago (Edited 85d ago )

Okay i will be interested if they become old Blizzard but might as well be dead.

Rynxie85d ago

They will never be old blizzard. Most of all the OG's left from developers to those on the top (even some decision making folks left).

Vits85d ago

Shame most of the people that made Blizzard what they were, have already left a while ago.

ApocalypseShadow85d ago

I was about to say this. How can they be blizzard when they're no longer blizzard from yesteryear?

blacktiger85d ago

Rare was the thing I lost heart

victorMaje85d ago

Exactly. Blizzard hasn’t been Blizzard for a long time.
Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Knightofelemia85d ago

Blizzard is not the same Blizzard like it use to be.

PassNextquestion85d ago

Were you expecting Microsoft to hire everyone that had left Blizzard long before they purchased the company...

Microsoft has let the Blizzard company they purchased continue to be the Blizzard company they purchased.

thesoftware73085d ago

Wow, PassNextquestion,

You fully understand what that saying means, unlike some people on here who just have to say negative garbage talk.

When someone says, "Just let *blank* be *blank*, "they are just letting them operate how they operate.

It's pretty much how Sony "let Bungie be Bungie."

This comment section is full of outright haters, but you have to "let N4G be N4G"

GamerRN84d ago

This site leans so heavily in one direction...

BISHOP-BRASIL84d ago

I don't think people commenting are necessarily blaming MS for anything here, this is just collective longing for what Blizzard/Vivendi was before Activision's meddling.
