ARE YOU TEAM HORDE OR ALLIANCE?
It’s unbelievable how fast we’re approaching the halfway mark of the year. By the time this issue gets in your hands, the 2016 edition of COMPUTEX TAIPEI will have delivered its fair share of surprise announcements and exciting new products and solutions. Of course, you can keep up with the latest developments from the week-long ICT showcase, simply by pointing your browser to us at HardwareZone.com.my
Meanwhile, you’ll find that our June 2016 issue has quite the cover this month, with Durotan (Toby Kebbell) and Lothar (Travis Fimmel) staring straight on in an intimidating manner. We’re, of course, referring to the two key characters from
Warcraft: The Beginning, which is probably one of the most anticipated video game film adaptations in recent years. Sure, these movies tend not to have a very good track record with fans and critics, but we’re cautiously optimistic about Blizzard Entertainment’s first live-action / CG Warcraft film for several reasons, chief among which is Duncan Jones in the director’s chair. It also helps that the film is bolstered by a star-studded cast, with the story penned by Chris Metzen himself. In view of the film’s release, we have prepared two features for this issue of HWM Malaysia. The first (page 52, ‘ Warcraft: From PC to the Big Screen’) focuses on the heroes and villains of Warcraft: The Beginning, while the second (page 108, ‘ The Chronicles of Warcraft’) serves as a retrospective on the early Warcraft real-time strategy trilogy, all the way up to the World of Warcraft MMORPG installments. As for me, I’m Team Horde all the way!
