I make no attempts to hide my infatuation with pandas. I also don't shy away from stating that I'm not a big fan of World of Warcraft. However, Blizzard knows how to get anyone excited for their games with the always stellar cinematic trailers they put together for their titles. It was honestly a deciding factor for me to purchase Diablo III. They're just so good at convincing me I should buy a game. This Mists of Pandaria cinematic trailer is no different.
It opens up with an Orc and a Human hunting for each other in Pandaria, leading up to them fighting in what appears to be a training area. That's when a Pandaren comes out of nowhere and kicks the sh*t out of the two. There's a couple hilarious moments mixed in that I won't spoil for you, because they're that good. Just look how f*cking bad ass he looks! I want Blizzard to just make a full-fledged Mists of Pandaria film. This trailer isn't enough.
But yeah, this has convinced me to actually play WoW. I'm installing it as I'm writing this, because playing as a panda is that important to me. Is that bad?
