Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
I'm having a difficult time imagining what will come from this. Good, bad or other.

Huge fan of Blizzard. Not a big fan (at all) of Activision.  I guess if you take things that rock and combine them with things that, well, don't... you should prepare for mediocrity.

Part of what makes Blizzard great is the ability do the right thing, without bowing to pressures to ship an unfinished game.  I don't see that staying intact with Activision.

I'm being unfair, I know.  Who's to say it won't be great?  Let's just say I'm being cautiously pessimistic.
(You can't disappoint me if I never thought it would work, right??)

Meh, I don't see anything here other than an "on paper" merger. They aren't going to share resources. No names are changing. No development teams are shifting. If anything, they will just slap "Blizzard" on any crap product to help in sales, which will be the doom of this merger if anything.
