Everything Old, New again!

Blizzard announce a while ago that they are revamping StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Diablo II for modern systems.  I assume that means they will work better on Windows 10 and Mac and whatnot (not a big deal)  I’m hoping that they update the interface for mobile (that would be a big deal!).

BUT, what I hope MOST is that they update the stories.  There have been story ret-cons and characters that have cropped up that were ‘there the whole time’ and they could take the opportunity to put those things back in to those games.

Blizzard might be planning on updating the old engines to run on the modern devices, and if they do that, some graphical updates would be all I expect.  BUT if they have to remake the engines then they will have to do a lot of stuff from scratch.  It would be a great opportunity to tighten those stories.

It also makes a lot of sense in relation to the movie and the Warcraft Chronicles book that is coming out.  They seems to really be focusing on the backstory (maybe even to much, but that’s for another post.)

Heroic Mekkatorque Flying Machine and Thermaplugg Submarine? (Please?) 😀 … Oh $#!& that would have to be Warcraft 2.  Dang it. 😦
