I like the cover for Illidan. According to Wowpedia, William King is writing it. Apparently he wrote some Warhammer books, but I don't even play Warhammer, so...

Hope he's good. So far, Michael Stackpole is my favorite WoW novelist.

On that note i have been reading shadows of the dark and edgy horde and compared to war crimes i have to agree that its the most well written warcraft book ive read, right up there with of blood and honor.

Plot sucks fossilized triceratops ass though.

Even I didn't really like War Crimes, and my standards are pretty low compared to most of you. It felt like I read most of it before (because I did), and the deus ex ma-chi-ji-na at the end was terrible.

Blizzard really has a problem with honesty. They should just flat out say it now that if the movie is a success, it will be the new canon instead of pretending it's really gonna stay its own thing.

I hope not. Not because I care about the current gameverse and its story that much, but because it could destroy the little potential the movieverse has.

Illidan's confirmed release date is April 12. Was hoping it would be March, but eh.

Also, here is the blurb from Amazon:

Quote:
You are not prepared.

Illidan Stormrage is one of the most powerful beings ever to walk the lands of Azeroth. He is also one of the least understood. Behind his legend, beneath his enigmatic mission, lies a brilliant mind whose machinations are comprehended by few?and trusted by even fewer. Illidan?s righteous reign of justice and vengeance has begun, taking the stunning adventure, intrigue, and heroism of World of Warcraft, the highest-grossing videogame of all time, to a new level.

Long ago, the night elf sorcerer Illidan infiltrated the demonic Burning Legion to ward off its invasion of Azeroth. Instead of hailing him as a hero, his own kind branded him the Betrayer, questioning his intentions after he appeared to aid the demon lords. For ten thousand years, he languished in prison?vilified, isolated, but never forgetting his purpose.

Now the Legion has returned, and there is only one champion who can truly stand against it. Released from his bonds, Illidan prepares for the final confrontation in the alien realm of Outland, gathering an army of grotesque fel orcs, serpentine naga, cunning blood elves, and twisted demon hunters to his side. He alone knows what deeply hidden motives guide his hand; he alone understands the price that must be paid to defeat the enemies of creation. Yet as before, he is assailed by those who see his schemes as a cynical quest for power, including the night elf Maiev Shadowsong, his former jailor. Warden Shadowsong and her Watchers have pursued the Betrayer to Outland to exact retribution for his crimes, and she will not rest until Illidan is in her custody . . . or in his grave.

Sounds like it's basically warcraft 3 to his rule of outland and when he dies. Hope they keep that he's still doing morally wrong things for the overall goal of beating the Legion.

Me, too.

If Illidan wants to see himself as a hero, that's fine. If he wants to stroke his ego by telling himself that he's doing the right thing for the right reasons, I'm all for that.

Hopefully the author can convey it all well.

I think they originally intended for Illidan to come out in March but then Chronicle was set for March so they pushed Illidan back to April.

I must save the world.

How?

Let's fuck up time and space. Everyone will think its pretty deep. Doing anything else would be childish, inspirational, and heroic and we're not about that.

They now say "Highest-grossing" instead of "highest subscription count"

Chronicle comes out March 15th, Illidan comes out April 12th, and Pokemon's re-release comes out in February.

Is January over yet?
