Blizzard continues to update their minisite -- the latest newness is the posting of a new Blizzcast
, in two parts. In part one, Karune of the Starcraft
community team interviews Chris Metzen, Rob Pardo, and Samwise Didier about the history of Warcraft
as a whole (it's celebrating the 15th anniversary as well this year), and part two has our friend Nethaera talking to J. Allen Brack, Tom Chilton, and Jeff Kaplan about the game itself. As is usual with the official podcast, there's not much new information here (especially if you've already read through some retrospective press
), but both interviews are worth a listen (and/or a read through the transcript) if only to hear these guys all in a room together, joking around about old times.
Elsewhere on the site, they've started posting written interviews
as well. The first one is with Shane Dabiri
, former lead producer on the game, and there are faded-out spots for J. Allen Brack, Tom Chilton, and Jeff Kaplan as well. The other spots aren't revealed yet, but they're supposed to be interviews from the "community," so it'll be interesting to see who those turn out to be. Blizzard, anytime you want to chat with me about the history of World of Warcraft
, just drop an email!
