After spending the entire weekend trying to get good shots and video on a dimply lit show floor with a mobile phone, Blizzard walks in, drops a load of professionally shot official BlizzCon 2011 photos and a small video on my desk, and then disappears in a puff of smoke. Jerks.

Oh look, they've even added their own captions for each shot. Next year I'm just going to let them write my posts.

I'm just kidding, Blizzard. Thanks for the pictures. I'm framing Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime on bass and putting it on my wall.
