Activision and Blizzard

Blizzards recent update for RealID has stirred some seriously strong response in their General Forum. Over 1800 pages at the time of writing this little entry.

It looks like Activision-Blizzard is getting in bed with Facebook. Another article on Activision's CEO gives an interesting insight to the direction of WoW, Guitar Hero, and other games.

I really don't like the direction things are going with RealID. Real names being used in the public forums isn't something I want to accept and I'm not sure I like the notion that it's part of a larger picture still. I'm honestly debating canceling my WoW account at this point. I figure I'd give it a month to see how things go.

Oh and for something amusing despite this crappy news, Hitler's reaction to Starcraft 2 and RealID.
