The expansion will feature a new race called the Eagle-o, which are strapping bald eagle like creatures that wear ten gallon hats and are hardened by a life of poverty in the trailer park. They like to chew tobacco and spit it into empty plastic bottles which they throw at their enemies as their racial ability, and they have a love for Pabst Blue Ribbon.
A new class will be introduced called the Gunslinger. What really needs to be said about them? I think you know. Bald eagles with guns.
Among the new zones will be an arid desert with a big canyon, a rolling grassland with huge herds of buffalo inhabited by a peaceful race of red-skinned humanoids called the Caricachoree, and a glittering metropolis beset on one side by magnificent wealth and on the other by crime, destitution and starvation.
So my question(s) to you, dear WoW player, is:
1. How would this hypothetical expansion to this hypothetical MMO be received in Mexico, or Canada, or any number of other "Western" countries that are not the US?
2. How would it be received in the US, where players would be treated to a litany of stereotypes purveyed by Japanese game designers?
3. Now, how might a player in Korea receive a so-called Asia-themed, but clearly China-centric expansion?
4. And how might a player in China react to a game loaded with Kung Fu movie and other stereotypes from a Western game studio?
