There is no other video game company in the world like Blizzard, not Square, Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, you name it, Blizzard has legions of fans because of the quality in their games. People may call me Sony fanboy, computer nerd, video game freak but of one thing I’m sure… I’m a full Blizzard fanboy and am proud of it. I grew up playing Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and then it was Starcraft back in 98 which I love amongst all the three universes, Diablo, Starcraft and Warcraft. Currently I am impatiently waiting for Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3, I still remember waiting 3 frickin long years for Warcraft 3 when it was announced in 99, we all (fans) hope that Starcraft 2 will be launched in this year, we’re hoping for a date to be announced at BlizzCon in August. I’m also a fan of game novels especially if the universe of those games is good so I have a good quantity of books, would like to get more but its quite hard to get them so I have always to buy them through Amazon UK or purchase them in the States. Here’s my current collecting, still waiting for Starcraft second “manga” volume which should had arrived yesterday or today, still hoping for tomorrow’s arrival.
Bought my first three volumes Warcraft: The Demon Soul, Warcraft: The Sundering and Warcraft: Day of the Dragon back in 2003 on my first trip to the US, after that I managed to get the first volume of the saga War of the Ancients through Amazon. It’s very rare to see these books in bookstores here especially the novels (which I think don’t even exist here), the “mangas” of The Sunwell Trilogy are sold here translated to Portuguese but mine are all in English because of buying them at Amazon 😛 . The Starcraft Archive is not an archive of the game but its a “compilation” of the first four books that were released. Halo…well I like Halo’s universe but I don’t own a 360, only the first X-Box 😛 .
I also have a couple figures of World of Warcraft, you already know Benedrom from a previous post, still haven’t managed to finish the photo shoot because its very hard to shoot in the dark without a tripod, the other figure is of a Draenei mage called Tamuura, I have a character similar to that in WoW xD, there are more figures from WoW but not as pretty as these ones.
Earlier this week I got a package from HLJ, it was my first purchase of an AppleSeed action figure of Deunan Knute, the normal price is 8800 yen but I got her for 4400 because it was promotion time celebrating a year of HLJ japanese version store but the figure I really wanted was the one of Deunan from Hot Toys, unfortunately even with their promotion the fig was expensive as hell. Eventually will have to do a photo shoot of her.
