So it is that time of the year again. Blizzcon is getting close and i dont think that the hype has been bigger than than ever before. Rumors of Bolvar/Lich king return I'm Wow, rumors of Overwatch 2, rumors of Diablo 4 AND Diablo 2 remaster. Even saw some streamers discussing a whole new IP being revealed. 

One thing is for sure, I can't wait! Might even buy a Virtual Ticket for this one. Can't be as bad as last year right?

Is this actually a thing?? Pay to watch a stream? Greediness has no limits.

To be fair, it probably has to do with people paying money to go to the actual convention  , if it streamed free at home why would anyone visit? Its pretty expensive tho!

Apple WWDC costs $1600 to participate, sells out in a matter of hours if not minutes, yet the keynote stream is live and free. The  workshop sessions are also available after the event.

E3 costs $250 and is covered by different websites in real time, plus publishers have their own streams.

Even Star Citizen, the most heavily monetised legal rip-off joke of a game, has tickets for $140 but a free stream.

Have you ever been to a concert? You don’t pay just for the content of the presentation when you decide to attend, there’s a suite of other benefits from networking, to trying the products presented etc.

You can watch most of the stuff for free on the Blizzcon website, you only need a virtual ticket if you really want to watch every single panel (and the closing ceremony).

Overwatch 2 trailer!

Both Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 seem like they're iterations on the old engines, which is fine. I guess Diablo 4's trailer just wowed me a bit more, if I'm honest? Hopefully more stuff comes out that shows why people who may not have played Overwatch 1 that much should tune into the sequel. The co-op PVE stuff is nice, but the robots don't seem to have a ton of personality as villains, I can't get too excited about the prospect of fighting them.

I Love that all old progress, like unlocked skins etc, comes with you in Overwatch 2. Gotta say the cinematics were amazing. Diablo 4 cinematic had me and My Friend screaming like girls at a Justin Bieber concert.

An for Overwatch, a Gothenburg map, woooh. Can't wait to see future IKEA haha!

Love the fact that D4 is going back to the roots a bit more. That looked great, if maybe slightly tooooo desaturated? Still way more up my street than D3 :D Nice work all. 

New Overwatch patch looks good ;)
