What? People are bitching about things not being bleak enough? They must have released some new screens or something, because the shit I saw had an atmosphere reminiscent of the first game. I can only assume the people complaining about this are invoking something similar to the First Rule of Internet Black Metal Discussion: "If more than three people like something, it isn't black enough".
I will say that some of those outside shots remind me of Azshara, the little WoW zone that couldn't. But that's not so bad, because I kinda liked the look of that place. :P
