That's pretty funny, probably not as bad as the random "Archon" wizard skill in Diablo though.

You should play World of Warcraft. The quest text is really something special.

The amount of bugs I noticed in that video has exceeded my daily quota of intern. I need to lay down for a while.

What do you want? Even the titles of both game franchises are almost identical.
So I had never a problem with the fact that there are several similarities in both games (i.e. Storylines, Characters, Names, even the game menu at some point, etc.).

What do I want? What do I want?!

I want to see Mezten skinned alive with nothing but a cucumber. I want to see justice and order returned to this world. I want to see writing become an actual "thing" and not just a buzzword some casual vomits every few months because it sounds dark and edgy.

I want to see dawn. I want salvation amongst the stars. Too long has this world cowered in its own shadow. You must expand your horizons.

I thought Brood War's story is even worse than Starcraft 2...
You think StarCraft II's story is bad, then you play another game and you realize...
Even Marathon, which is probably one of the very few games out there that have a sensible plot, is nothing compared to a good movie from the 80s... or any anime. This is just to say how stagnant the industry has been when it comes to writing, they have never approached gaming as a true storytelling medium.

I think Square is making fun of Metzen.

There is an anime, The Familiar of Zero, that have THE VOID as a kind of DAAAAAAAAAAARK magic of the ancient wielded by the PROPHESIED ONE.

Surely even Metzen would be tested this day...
