Microsoft + Activision Blizzard Acquistion Memes and Funny Images

Recommended Posts

It's time for our regularly scheduled post-huge-announcement meme rundown, as players react to whatever big news just happened via memes and funny images! Today's shocking announcement that Microsoft is planning on buying Activision Blizzard is one of the biggest pieces of gaming news ever, and so there's plenty to go through (I filtered out the INFINITY "Clippy is coming to WoW" ones though).

And while we are skipping the Clippy spam, we do need to start with some basics:

Then it's the also pretty expected Halo references, with one particularly well made Worgen face. The first one is more about the title than the image itself:

This next one may not be entirely accurate but... the more stuff I can blame on Sylvanas/the horrific writing the better:

And then we're on to the nightmare scenario that combines one of the most traumatic memories/characters players have from WoW with a pretty popular character:

Ok so I may have lied about the Clippy thing, but it's mostly because I don't see this one as a joke, but more like an actually good idea:

And finally, this one may not be for everyone (since I'm guessing a lot of you won't get the reference) and isn't really directly related, but I found it to  be the funniest of them all and, well, it's my post damn you!11

I'm guessing there will be plenty more to come, so I'll keep an eye out and there might be a part 2 to this roundup! And, of course, if you run into any good ones, do share below.

You knew something like this was coming. I figured with the absolute Mt. Everest of bad press this company has gotten over the last year alone that someone would think this company was probably a steal right now. There were a few times I wished I had the $$$. These games are all the victims of bad management, get a good team in there and they will all be solid gold again. Candy Crush, COD and WoW? Plus Diablo, Overwatch and even HOTS. Any one of those games can be highly successful. There is a gold mine here for a good team. 

I hope they bundle the WoW sub with the X box games pass.............

That would be great personally, and this could be a good way to get the console port some people want.

L'il Clippy needs to make comments, like Khadgar's Wondrous Wisdomball.  

"I see you are trying to fight a murloc.  Shall I summon your guildies?"  

"I see you are trying to farm Ashes of Alar. May I suggest just giving up?'

Let's hope Diablo 4 ain't an XBox exclusive.

Considering Microsoft has already stated that future Bethesda games are going to be Xbox exclusives, no hope there.

Just hoping development is too far along to just make it an exclusive:( But yeah I would not be surprised if it is a timed exclusive. I still cannot fathom why they think making ES6 a console game is a good idea, ONLY reason ES games are as popular as they are is modding.

Eh?   From everything I've heard ES6 is on Xbox and PC, where are you getting console only from?

MS don't do Xbox exclusives anymore, even Halo is on PC now. If you mean console exclusive as in no Playstation... I don't think it'll happen for Diablo 4 as deals are already in place, but it might happen for future games.

ES6 will NOT be console exclusive - it will be Xbox exclusive in terms of consoles, aka it won't be on Playstation but WILL be on PC. They literally just released their biggest frachise Halo on PC same day as Xbox.
