17. Re: World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Cinematic Aug 16, 2012, 19:26 Jonny
Sorry, I wasn't aiming specifically at you or anyone else at Blues. I'd just come back from reading the Youtube comments on this and they were all just a big cycle of "lol kung fu panda">"Pandaren predate Kung Fu Panda">"Lol pandas WoW is for kids now." The exact same shit that's been regurgitated over and over for the last year.

I don't care that people are poking at Blizzard, they can do that as much as they like, just that as someone who plays WoW and reads WoW related sites these comments have reached an unprecedented level of utter tedium and predictability.

On the content of the cinematic itself, I don't like Pandaren very much and agree with you that a good showing of the Alliance and Horde at each other's throats would have been a lot better. However I can see where they're coming from with it, they're showing the new race, the new class, the new land and the renewed conflict.

It's unfortunate, but I doubt you could show a class based on martial arts, a humanoid panda race and a land based on Asian aesthetics without drawing parallels with another recent humanoid panda martial artist from Asia.
