From what I've heard so far, they've integrated your squad members into the content of the game with lots of intra-mission dialogue and the usual post-mission bon motts. The revelation of the leviathan's nature *should* have a huge impact on the ending of the game. Whether it will or not, I've not yet heard.

So you're essentially encouraged to play through again regardless. Curious...

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria cinematic trailer: I'm off MMOs now - maybe for good - but I gotta give credit where it's due. This trailer is magic of the ilk you don't usually see outside Pixar and Aardman. Give it a watch and smile.

Is this Kung-Fu Panda 3?

Cheers! :D

That's what I was thinking, glad I gave up on WoW.

Yea, as an April Fool's joke.

I watched the trailer and my first reaction was "Heh, that's kind of neat." followed shortly with me shaking my head in disbelief and thinking "What the ....  people can play Kung Fu Panda in WoW now!?  What the ....".

An April Fools joke that became so in demand that they added them in to the Warcraft Expansion.  THEN kung fu panda came out 5 years later...when the panderan brewmaster had been around for a while...

One nice spot of StarCraft II was all the resources they left in the game that the game doesn't use, like the Tauren marine.  You can use him in custom maps.

It's been around a while...doesn't make it any less weird.  Remove Kung Fu Panda from the picture and its still an April Fool's joke gone awry.

I do think this is the result of a feedback loop.  Blizzard puts out an April Fools joke and eventual cameo appearance of a martial artist, anthropomorphic.  Someone else latches onto this idea and Kung Fu Panda is born.

The question that lingers in my mind: If it wasn't for King Fu Panda, would a Panderia expansion in WoW ever been realized?

When did burning crusade come out?  That was when panderans were originally schedualed for WoW... We got crack elvs and space goats instead because blizzard was dealing with china.  So. We probably would of gotten pandas anyway.  Probably wouldn't have gotten a jack black panda in the panda area... But

If anyone plays Warhammer, the Ogre Kingdoms army came out a very short while after Shrek was a big hit. Coincidence? I don't know, but it's funny none-the-less. Plus they were green.

My goal is to get it on the PC, but I don't think I will be able to preorder it.  :'(

I am back to looking for work so I can't really purchase it yet, though I really want to!  :'(
