Blizzard has released details of another zone for Cataclysm: Vashj’ir

Once a great Highborne city housing some of the most revered night elves of Kalimdor, Vashj’ir was swallowed by the  Great Sea in the Sundering and thought to be lost forever. Queen Azshara, formerly a beloved leader of the Highborne, escaped death in the depths of the sea when the Well of Eternity imploded. Such salvation came at a
great cost, as the queen and many of her fellow Highborne were forever transformed into the monstrous naga, doomed to wander the seas for thousands of years. Their existence mostly remains a mystery to the peoples of modern  Azeroth, though the Earthen Ring has learned ofAzshara’s naga seizing Vashj’ir for an unknown purpose as the cries of
the elements echo across Azeroth from the Abyss.

Blizzard Pet store causes protests!

“The Blizzard Pet Store has just been updated with a couple of fun new choices that you can get for your characters. Continuing in the theme of cute, miniaturized bosses, we have Lil’ XT, and the CelestialSteed is the first-ever mount to be available through the service.” It was anounced yesterday. Opinions are now flying all around Azeroth about the Celestial Steeds flying all around Northrend.

Much of the talk in the trade chat around the servers, much of the grumbling I saw on othersites and on Facebook, complained about the commercialization of ingame items. ‘They’re destroying the game for profit,’ or ‘I can’t believe they’re just letting people buy their way through the game,’ others complain. The heated debate has been
raging for hours now, and there’s not hint at it stopping any time soon. Maybe it will peter off when the 50,000 person queues in the Blizzard store lessen.

What do I think about the whole shabang?

The playerbase has been paying for additional content /fluff pretty much since video games began. Remember buying that Special/Collectors Edition with the extra gun/armor/map (whatever) or DLC (Downloadable Content) . Ultimately ‘what can I get for my extra $10?’ is a personal choice.

In today’s society people generally strive to be different, stand out from the crowd an individual. Whether this is driven from a basic psychological need or not is up for guys like Dr. Phil to decide 🙂

Driven by the need for bragging rights or individuality, this addition revenue stream is nothing new and will always be a part of gaming. How else is Blizzard supposed to compete with the likes of Farmville!

At the end of the day I have to agree with one quote I saw on a blog “It probably doesn’t matter beyond me just saying “Eh, I think it’s too expensive” and then I move on and forget about this tomorrow.”

Personally, I feel sorry for the poor Lil’ XT no-one seems to give a hoot about him. Which ever way you feel about this, one thing is for sure: Blizzard must be laughing all the way to the bank with all this ruckus!

Blizzard has begun sending out invites to the World Of Warcraft: Cataclysm beta to the world’s press. You know what that means: It’s coming soon, folks.

Although it hasn’t yet put a firm date on the expansion’s release date, Blizzard is accepting media beta sign ups until April 15.

April 15 is not the actual date the beta goes live, however: Blizzard says it does “not currently have a date to announce for the start of the beta test.”

Keeping a close eye on our inbox to see if we get an invite. (crossing fingers & toes)
