...ok...? Why is this not Warcraft 4, and why are they releasing a story expansion after 15 years of WoW?

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Because they don't want to release Warcraft 4 until Half-Life 3 obviously. In Warcraft 4 the events of Warcraft 3 and Half-Life 3 converge into one narrative.  They don't want to spoil Half-Life 3.

Blizzard have always done this, World of Warcraft is a good example each expansion changes the whole game you would normally release each of these as a new game when you change the game engine, UI and modeling.

The World of Warcraft engine was built of off Warcraft 3, so it was probably relatively easy to apply the upgrades of World of Warcraft over the last 15 years and design new character models as well. Without having to rewrite the code from scratch.

It's a major overhaul to Warcraft 3 bringing it into todays graphics era.

World of Warcraft is undergoing major changes in 8.1 yet to be released that include Multicore Enhancement.

Finally World of Warcraft will take full use of 8 cores, instead of pinning one core to 100% and using 3 others at 15-20%.

Lets hope this comes to Warcraft 3: Reforge also.

 

I remember playing C&C and Warcraft 1/2/3 on my first computer, the graphics are really bad but i do play it every now and then on my surface pro 4.

I am so excited so having an on the go game to play, it's the only thing i use the surface pen for haha. it's a lot of fun to play with a pen.

There aren't 62 new missions. The original game had 62 missions already.

 

This is just Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne. Nothing more.

 

After the shitshow that was StarCraft Remastered (I'm a high level Starcraft player), I'm not convinced to buy this. Starcraft Remastered was actually a regression in multiplayer lag/stability. The game got worse, not better, and led me to more or less quit altogether because multiplayer lag is still ridiculous to this day.

 

If this gets the same treatment, then it is more worthwhile to just play classic WC3. That game actually works. I'd rather have a game that works than one that just looks pretty.

 

Brood War 1.16 also worked fairly well since we could connect to community servers, but Blizzard killed that with Starcraft Remastered.
