that Future and Blizzard are teaming up to produce World of Warcraft: The Magazine
surprised almost everyone, I think. No more so because of the undeniable shift from print to digital media. However the fact that Blizzard is involved and the promise of no adverts and a "coffee table" kind of feel makes this very appealing. Granted the subscription is a little high, especially when you consider you're only getting four issues for your cash and yet I think a lot of people are going to sign up. I'm probably going to be one of them.
As a fanbase, we're know for collecting shiny things to do with our game of choice, whether it's a Wrath
Collector's Edition or a Starcraft II
messenger bag. Personally my thing is artbooks: I've got the whole set from the Art of the World of Warcraft
to the Cinematic Artbook
from last year's BlizzCon so the idea of a magazine loaded with artwork and interviews and all that jazz makes me very excited. What about you, constant readers, will you be tempted to subscribe?
