This week on the very first episode of Talk Azeroth, Olivia Grace waxes lyrical on the departure of her predecessor to the sunny shores of Blizzard Entertainment, and recounts her own tale of her recent visit to Blizzard EU in Paris, where she got to play Hearthstone, as well as grilling Blizzard developers Ben Brode and Eric Dodds on the upcoming CCG.
Moving in to the more Warcraft-focused news, Olivia brings us up to date on the WoW movie, with a short potted history, before wondering whether it will be a success, theorizing what route might work best for Blizzard's box office, and asking whether it is a good idea at all.
Last up, we take a look at a recently datamined desktop client. It looks like a complete replacement for the existing launchers, and Olivia takes a look at what we can glean from the pictures before discussing some hopes and fears for the new system.
