Australian Snooker Champion talks about how video games affected his life

Australian Snooker Player, Neil Robertson, had a very candid interview with Eurosport about his addiction to video games and how it impacted his personal and professional life. In the interview he said he used to play a lot of World of Warcraft and League of Legends, but had to stop completely because it had taken over his life completely: [quote]”I’ve had really good application in my pract...

Turn your WoW gold into Blizzard credit for items in other games

For about two years now some World of Warcraft players have been paying their monthly subscriptions with gold. Players could spend gold to buy tokens, or spend real money to buy tokens to get a fair amount of gold in the game. The price of the token shifted up and down as supply and demand jumped in the month, but for many it was a manageable practice, especially for people with lots of time and n...

World of Warcraft fan server to launch this month, based off Nostalrius

With 800,000 players, Nostalrius shows that many World of Warcraft players loved the vanilla content of the game. The server was  shut down in April and while many hoped that Blizzard would launch their own “pristine” servers, that never happened. An online petition with 250,000 signatures got Blizzard’s attention and it agreed to meet with Nostalrius’ admin. After no news ...

Doubleagent finishes the climb to Legion’s level cap by just mining and picking herbs

Doubleagent, with his apt title: the insane, has made it all the way to World of Warcraft’s new level cap of 110 just by collecting herbs and mining ore. No dungeons, no PVP. Just gathering materials. This makes Doubleagent the only character at level 110 that is completely factionless, a neutral in a world that is either Horde or Alliance. Watch just how excited Neutralagent is as that leve...

Legion gets more content, which means less sleep for everyone

World of Warcraft updated to version 7.1 today, with a 5-man reworked version of Karazhan, a mini raid, the continuation of the story of Suramar and a quest to raise a new mount (yeah, that sounds like it might be a big grind). It is a big patch and while it has many quality of life improvements, the classes are getting buffed and nerfed, depending on where they have been in the roster for top DPS...

Four reasons why Legion keeps me going back every day

Hey it is my turn to do the list again! I hate lists, especially ones that have to be in any specific order. So I am subverting the list again this time (like I did with the composer “list” and hijacking this slot to tell you about something I have been putting a lot of time into). You guessed it, I am posting about World of Warcraft. So here are some of the reasons I think Legion still has strong...

Blizzard’s adverts in South Korea are hilarious

Do you know why people skip video adverts on YouTube? Because they tend to be so boring. Even waiting five seconds to click skip advert feels like eternity as some insurance company tries to tell you… something. I am not sure what, it was so boring that it was erased from my mind. But then you get adverts that you want to watch because they are hilarious, while teasing societal norms. Take t...

Review: World of Warcraft: Legion (PC)

World of Warcraft is back with a bang with its best expansion ever. Let's send the Burning Legion back home in little pieces.

How we will beat (er review) Legion

MMOs are an interesting beast. Where most games can be beaten in hours, the contents of an MMO can stretch on for days or weeks. They are continually updated with new content, balances and patches, with content unlocking in staggered waves to make sure that everyone has a chance to be ready for when the latest cool thing arrives. It could take months. One MMO took me two months to play through wit...

Legion’s Harbingers shorts focus on the central characters

Gul’dan. Khadgar. Medivh. You know these names, even if your interaction with the Warcraft universe is just having seen the movie, or a bit of Hearthstone or Heroes of the Storm. Even if you have played the games, there is still so much about these central powerful figures that we don’t know. That is where Harbingers comes into the picture. If you are interested in getting into World o...

Voice Actor Tuesday: Michael McConnohie

On Sunday I was doing my regular World of Warcraft achievement / transmog run with friends when we came up against Deathwing and someone in the group said “Who voices Deathwing? His voice sounds really familiar.” He did sound familiar and I nearly kicked myself when it clicked. Michael McConnohie is an American voice actor and president of Voxworks, a Nevada-based voice acting corporat...
