So what if Blizzard only has three or four current games - that doesn't mean you shouldn't be excited by a Blizzard-themed Gold Box day, right? Man, no wonder Kotick fired me.


Amazon's video game Gold Box deal days generally focus around a certain theme or platform, but today's deals are all Blizzard. Well, all Blizzard and Blizzard game-related peripherals, at least.

All day long, fans of StarCraft who wish to make new fans of StarCraft can pick up the StarCraft Battle Chest for $9.77. That's every StarCraft game and expansion released in the past 10 years! It sounds much more impressive when you put it that way.

Then we've got the Gold Box Deals, and boy are there a lot of them. Ten deals in all, with one already expired and one ready to expire at any moment. Check out the list below, and remember the times are Pacific.

6am: Logitech G13 Advanced Gameboard - Expired
7am: World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Expansion Pack - $28.99
9am: Customize your gaming experience like never before - ??
11am: Experience the battle between High Heavens and Burning Hell - Diablo?
1pm: Take control of your game with this highly-customizable gaming keyboard. - Sounds like a ZBoard
3pm: Enter the World of Warcraft! - The original game?
5pm: This gaming mouse is your weapon of choice for precision and control - some gaming mouse
6pm: The world will tremble before the coming of the Burning Legion - WoW Burning Crusade Expansion
8pm: Get superior performance, comfort, and control in your MMO gaming - someone else to play for you?
9pm: Update your ZBoard for maximum World of Warcraft effectiveness - ZBoard keyset

Of course for those later ones I'm merely speculating, but as I said, it's not like there's a lot of games to choose from.

I just can't understand the allure of Blizzard games. I'd like to, but it hasn't happened yet.
