It’s not quite “every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings”, but there’s a saying I hope will lodge in the world’s collective unconscious: “Every time Craig Pearson is on RPS, a Neverwinter trailer is released”. It’s true. Whenever I pretend to be an RPS writer, the guys at Cryptic put out another Neverwinter trailer. For some reason, my being here is inextricably linked to the ebb and flow of audio visual information about a game where wizards are hitting people. I’m here for a couple of days next week, so we’ll have definite proof. If they follow up this video of the control wizard in action, then they’ve definitely hacked into my Google calender. And if that’s true, then they know about the…. uh-oh. I’ll be right back.
I’ll never tell. To rapidly return to the subject, the Control Wizard is exactly as the name suggests. He’s a magic dealer focused on dictating the terms of the battle, using freeze rays and blasts that take down multiple opponents. He’s the tough teacher of the rowdy classroom. He’s the ice-cream van on the hot day. He’s Moses with water.
