Blizzard's Bill Roper Interview
9:14 AM | Tristan Kane | Comment on this story

UGO.com Games has published an interview with Bill Roper, Vice President of Blizzard Entertainment, about all things Warcraft III and World of Warcraft. As far as interviews of this kind go this one is massive, and goes into all the juicy bits of detail you could ever want, from his impressions of both games to their relative feature film prospects. Here is an excerpt:

UGO: So how exciting is it to get Warcraft III out the door?

Bill Roper: Oh, fantastic! It has been a real blast. We actually had a chance, almost the whole team, lot of guys from the cinematics and stuff, we did three different, midnight events at Fry's [Electronics] up in Northern California, the rest of the guys did one down in Southern California. It's very humbling to go into a store where you've like three or four hundred people lined up to buy the game, and they're like waiting in line. But it was fun and I think it was great for the team to get to meet the people and sign copies of the game and stuff. But it's a big relief, and especially since people seem to like it.

So if you are a fan of Blizzard games you really must check out this both long and interesting interview, to do so please use the link below.
