World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Cinematic

This trailer is the opening cinematic from World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft. Word is: "You've ended Deathwing's destructive rampage and saved the dragonflights from extinction. Now you must unlock the mysteries of the lost continent and discover the dark secrets of Pandaria's past. Explore ancient kingdoms hidden since before the Sundering, plunder vast treasures from the depths of the forgotten vaults, and rise to defend Pandaria from the shadow of a long buried evil - before it's too late."

Welll, not YOU, because YOU quit before that was put into the game, because we made the trip from 80 to 85 so short you beat all the story quests in 2 months when it took you a year to do Wrath. But someone...yeah...someone beat Deathwing. So you can come back and play this expansion. You know, if you're not too busy with GW2 and stuff.

Please?

Well, I defeated Deathwing back in February. It made me realize that Blizzard's raid and dungeon design team has no creativity left, so I promptly canceled my account and haven't looked back.

GW2 in 8 days 13 hours!

You guys all realize that Pandarens were around long before Kung Fu Panda, right?

I'm a little stunned. Instead of coming out at critics calling this the Kung Fu Panda expansion, they full-on embraced it as kung fu panda.
I'd probably be excited if I was 8.

I'd sort of been considering going back to see it and level one more character again, if they showed that it was something more than "the kung fu panda expansion", and instead they go with a trailer that says that's exactly what it is. It seems impossibly arrogant, in a way; a few years ago the challenge that everyone was going to play it anyway was probably true but now I'm not so sure.

Yeah, it's pretty sad that about the only thing ActiBlizz does right anymore are CGI trailers. But much like Fleetwood Mac, ain't never goin' back again.

James Woods: Oh that's fun. That sounds like you had a fun time. Where would I fit in with the fun time, huh? Where does James Woods fit into the fun?

They should have focused the introduction video on the theme of the expansion which is the coming war between the Horde and the Alliance rather than an extended introduction of the Pandaren.

It's a fun video but I can't say I really enjoyed it as far as an opening cinematic is concerned. Past expansion openings gave you an idea of what's going on whereas this just throws Pandaren at your face as a way of saying 'YEAH! PANDAS! LOOK!!!' while giving little to no attention to anything else like the Shas or the broken relations between the Horde and Alliance.

So they made a whole expansion out of Kung Fu Panda?

Yeah, Blizzard makes absolutely amazing CGI trailers. It's too bad that the quality of their games hasn't kept pace...

I always loved the Pandaren Brewmaster in WC3.
