I know this isn't book related but, this weekend was Blizzcon and I adore all of Blizzard games. So, we bought a virtual ticket, ordered some food, had beer and played Blizzard games while watching the live stream! We really hope to go one year, (hopefully next year for my fiances 30th!!) but, the live stream is just as good. In this post I want to talk about my top 5 favourite moments from Blizzcon 2018 and the exciting things that they are planning!
Lucio-Oh's & Overwatch partnering with Nerf
So, Blizzcon started of with an advert for Cereal but, not just any cereal. Overwatch have partnered up with Kelloggs to create Lucio-Oh's and I am so excited. I want 10 boxes and I probably wont even eat all of them because I just need them in my life! They also come with a free loot box which is pretty amazing and I cannot wait for them to come out in the UK! Also speaking of Overwatch they have also partnered up with Nerf and ohmygod when they shown all the Overwatch themed nerf guns at Blizzcon I got so excited and I am ready to get all of them!
Not many people know about my big love of Warcraft but, I am obsessed with Azshara and the Naga and when they announced that one of the patches coming up is plotted around the Naga and Azshara I lost it. I am so excited, I am excited to explore, do the raids and just discover Nazjatar. The raid is called Azshara's Eternal Palace and can I just live there? Also, the rewards look amazing! Not only can you get a crab and seahorse mount! You can also get a baby Naga and I want 10 of them.
These where really fun panels to watch and listen too! Both of these panels where hosted by Andrea Toyias who is the senior director of casting and voiceover and she was joined on the Horde Vs Alliance panel with -
Steve Danuser - Lead Narrative Designer
Josh Keaton - Anduin Wrynn
Laura Bailey - Jaina Proudmoore
Indira Varma - Katherine Proudmoore
Patty Mattson - Sylvanas Windrunner
Susan Wokoma - Princess Talanji
Abubakar Salim - Rokhan
Alex Desert - Bwonsamdi
Maryann Strossner - Scrollsage Nola
I really enjoyed this panel when they talked about how they got the roll, there favourite part of being these characters and just hearing them talk and interact and just being their wonderful characters! Also, hearing them do some of their most popular voice lines including, A turtle made it to the water!
On the Overwatch panel Andrea was joined by-
Michael Chu - Lead Writer
Matthew Mercer - Mccree
Jennifer Hale - Ashe
Keith Silverstein - Torbjorn
Matilda Smedius - Brigitte
Dee Bradley Baker & Jon Lipow - Wrecking Ball
Just adored this panel and seeing Dee and Jon doing the Hammond and Wrecking Ball together was amazing and I just love all of these characters.
Speaking of Ashe! She is the 29th character to join Overwatch and I AM SO EXCITED! First, we got a Mccree short Reunion, and then we got introduced to Ashe who we met in the Mccree video. She looks amazing, she has some amazing abilities and her ultimate is her butler Bob and I just want to play her now.
Plus, me and my fiance where freaking out as his name is Ash and my initials are Bob. I know what we are cosplaying next year. We also got a backstory video on Ashe and I just need her in my life. I am ready to buy all the Ashe merch.
This has to be one of my favourite parts of Blizzcon. Community night is a competition for Cosplayers, Singers, Artists and video makers. This year entries where all amazing. So many amazing talented people out there. This night was also hosted by Overwatch's Reinhardt, Darin De Paul who is just the cutest and can he host it every year? A big well done to Have No Fear who won the Music contest as they are just amazing and their song last year, Payload is still stuck in my head with their newest song which is about the Horde Vs Alliance and I am waiting for their album drop.
And for extra, are we all excited for Warcraft 3 Reforged?! I am super excited and cannot wait for it to be out!
