ARE YOU TEAM HORDE OR AL­LIANCE?

HWM (Malaysia) - - ED'S NOTE -

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!
