Watch: We walk around the Blizzcon 2015 show floor

And discover its darkest secret.

I've enjoyed my first Blizzcon. More than any show I've attended, it feels like everyone here is part of the same community. This is a place where people come together and cheer as a new pet is revealed for World of Warcraft, without any hint of irony, and I think that's brill. It's infectious to be around.

Blizzcon 2015 may have wrapped up now, but before Linkin Park took to the stage (yeah, I know) and played out the closing ceremony, I managed to find a spare hour to have a wander around the show floor. I'm a fan of pointing at Blizzard statues and saying things like "Phwoar, that looks quie good" and I thought that's what this video would be all about. Little did I know that Blizzcon was about to take a much darker turn...
