Although still not out of the woods yet, I took a little time for myself this morning to see what's been going on in the world of video games and consequently stumbled upon a slew of new screenshots that Blizzard had just posted on their up-coming MMORPG World of Warcraft. The game looks amazing and will likely become a suck-hole for large amounts of players' time, like every other game Blizzard has created. Since they are currently in the process of selecting beta testers for the game, it's conceivable that we'll see the game's release before the end of the year.

Another Blizzard game I'm looking forward to with anticipation is Starcraft: Ghost, a tactical-action game being developed for consoles. If recent reports are accurate, the game should arrive sometime this summer.

Looks like 2004 will be a very Blizzard year.

Gamespy today ran an interview with Metroid creator Yoshio Sakamoto in which he talks not only about the upcoming Metroid: Zero Mission (just 7 more days!), but also talks about the series' origin. Not simply a port of the original NES Metroid, Zero Mission is a brand-new adventure:

Samus has new powers, there are new puzzles, there are three difficulty levels to choose from, and the story goes off in totally new directions. Sakamoto even revealed that 25 to 30 percent of the game takes place after the pivotal battle with Mother Brain -- which marked the end of the NES Metroid.

Details I found interesting: Zero Mission will connect with Metroid Fusion in some way; and for a period later in the game in Zero Mission, Samus will operate outside of her armored suit.

I'm looking forward to playing the new Metroid game as soon as it's released next week!
