Blizzplanet – New Layout Soon

Back on July, Cesar approached me with an idea of a layout for Blizzplanet. It has taken him longer to get it together due to his busy schedule. However, I’ll install the theme as is.

Originally, when he showed me this theme he was in love with it because it displays well on mobile devices, and it has the latest features. We’ll be experimenting several days until his layout is ready.

Apologies if you see broken stuff, and work-in-progress changes in the meantime.

Blizzplanet Wants Your BlizzCon 2009 Questions ASAP

Blizzplanet, Worldofwar.net, StarcraftWire.net and Diii.net are going to BlizzCon 2009.  I am staff member on those fansites too, so I will be on top of the news for each fansite providing updates from the show floor through our live chat (Cover it Live).

This year I am bringing my own laptop—it’s arriving next week—and my HD Video camera.  The reason of this post is to start collecting questions from our fans and visitors in advance.  If you have questions for Tom Chilton, J. Allen Brack, and Ghostcrawler about patch 3.3 and future PvP: Battlegrounds and Arena—we want your questions.

If you wish us to ask questions to Jay Wilson about Diablo III or to Dustin Browder about Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty—go ahead.  We will very likely meet them in private at the press rooms where only fansites and gaming sites have access. Re-read your questions and polish them the best you can before submitting them.

I already requested an interview spot with Richard A. Knaak and Christie Golden (pending approval) at Blizzcon 2009.  I am gathering questions for Richard about World of Warcraft: Stormrage, and Warcraft: Dragons of Outland; and for Christie about Warcraft Legends Vol. 5 (her Draka story)—and I will probably ask Christie if she can talk yet about the untitled trilogy.

You can post your questions below in the comments page, or submit it by email, or via Facebook (under just fans section).

Grabbing all these questions in advance will allow us to focus our efforts on collecting live questions via Cover It Live chat for the developer panels and new game announcements at the show floor.

I will video-interview briefly someone I am so glad to hear will appear at BlizzCon and has openly told me, wants to meet us—however, I am unable to reveal who it is at this point.  You will be excited, glad and thrilled. If Blizzard makes the announcement at the show, I will gather questions live for said person.

BlizzCon 2009 – World of Warcraft Questions Wanted

Eldorian is gathering questions over at Facebook for our possible interviews with Paul Sams, Tom Chilton and Ghostcrawler—at least if we get the chance in our trip to Blizzcon and Blizzard through August 20-22.

If you have questions, please submit them.  We will either forward your questions during the live Blizzcon panel Q&As or in an exclusive video interview.  These can either be about patch 3.2 or 3.3.  However, we will be hopping around during Blizzcon to gather questions after Blizzard has announced the new expansion and gives some details about it—so you will also be able to pop either on facebook or throuogh our live chat to submit questions on the go.

2009 New York Comic Con: Share Your Questions

I am gearing up with a press badge to attend the 2009 New York Comic Con to bring you as many details as possible of all Blizzard Entertainment products to be showcased at the event.  The event will take place through February 6-8. Among the companies coming to the New York Comic Con are: Pocket Star Books, Tokyopop, and DC Comics. Sideshow Collectibles, sadly, isn’t coming to the event this year (bottom). I will be in contact with some writers and with Upper Deck to find out if they are attending.

The line-up of products to be most likely showcased are:

  • World of Warcraft: Arthas
  • Starcraft: The Dark Templar, Twilight
  • Warcraft Legends Vol. 3
  • World of Warcraft: Death Knight
  • DC Direct World of Warcraft Action Figures
  • World of Warcraft Comic Book

One Blizzard product in particular I am hoping to hear about—crosses fingers—is the StarCraft Comic Book. My DC Comics contact wouldn’t budge to offer details a few days after Blizzcon 2008.  It was revealed in the BlizzCon comic sampler. DC Comics will make an announcement of this comic on 2009. The matter is when. New York Comic Con could be a good candidate for the announcement, as well as San Diego Comic Con (July).  It was at the San Diego Comic Con where the World of Warcraft comic book was first announced.

Keith R.A. DeCandido confirmed to be attending the event. I will corner him to get some details of the Starcraft Ghost; Academy trilogy (manga) and the Starcraft Ghost: Spectre (Pocket Star Book).  Aaron Rosenberg will be book signing copies of World of Warcraft: Beyond the Dark Portal. Jim Lee (Wildstorm) and Bill Roper (ex-Blizzard North) will be at the event too.

Pocket Star Books will be at booth 1402.  Tokyopop at booth 1621 and DC Comics at booth 1641. Grab your tickets online early. They are more expensive on-site.

Open to the Public:
Friday, February 6—1:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Saturday, February 7—10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Sunday, February 8—10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Got any questions for any of those companies about a particular product? Feel free to share your questions to ask them on your behalf.
