This week is Blizzcon!!!!
I am really excited to be able to attend once more. I have been very fortunately to have been able to attend all of the past Blizzcons over the years, which have always been really enjoyable and a lot of fun to be in the presence of so many fellow Azerothians!
I will see if I can nab some on the spot interviews with Blizzard employees, which I can share via the WoWNewz podcast I do with my good buddy Matt. Of course I all take pics too.
One of the aspects that I enjoy the most besides hearing what the various Blues and Behind the Scenes “Wizards” have to say about Wow, Diablo and Starcraft, is getting my program signed over at the signing booth.
Last year, I was able to snag the autographs of Chris Metzen and Samwise! It was really groovy to have the opportunity to meet them both. One of the fondest memories I have of any of the Blizzcons was listening to Christ Metzen give a talk about Warcraft Lore. It was both really hilarious in terms his stage persona, while at the same time so fascinating about all of the various aspects of the Lore of the Warcraft Universe.
The one year Matt and I went together, I was able to basically run down Mike Morhaime and get his autograph. He was so gracious and such a good sport about taking the time to chit chat with us, it really made a lasting impression on me.
So if you are also going to be attending Blizzcon this year, I will wear my Miami Dolphins hat, so look for me and say hi!
For The Horde!
