Why I want to consume this — 6 years ago
I have played the game a bit. By no means an expert but I think I am not a beginner anymore.
Most of my experience is with the original version of WoW. I only upgraded to the Burning Cruside expansion set recently. I have barely peeked inside the beginner areas of a couple major new lands it introduces. So the fact this DVD just covers the original version of WoW was just fine with me.
I wanted to try the game itself out of technical curiosity. Recently, having played it some, I wanted to see what the actual creators of the game had to say about building it.
I consider myself more of a developer than a game player. Even when playing it I find myself thinking about OpenGL, modeling, simulations, object oriented programming.
But on the flip side of the looking glass, I used to read mythology and legends a fair bit in grade school. Myths and folklore are interesting subjects to me – both the stories and the implications behind them.
The promise of cinematic clips also sounded pretty good. I wanted to learn more about the lore of the game – the “backstory”, in Hollywood terms.
The promise of seeing how the creator’s themselves see the game also proved enticing. I was curious how they approached the problem of undertaking something so huge and technically complex.
I am not sure that is what the DVD has to offer. But that is what I wanted out of it.
