Warcraft 2: Before Blizzard Was A Dirty Word – Opinion Piece

“good humour, challenged by the menace of the Orc invasion. It was a counterpoint, the antithesis to Westwood Studios Command and Conquer series, rejecting the modern militaristic setting of that series and presenting tropes lifted from Tolkien and other fantasy classics with a modicum of English humour as an aside.” Continue reading Warcraft 2: Before Blizzard Was A Dirty Word – Opinion Piece
