Heroes of the Storm closed beta announced

Heroes of the Storm will enter closed beta testing on January 13, 2015. The beta will have a lot more participants than the alpha, (about 15 times more) which was the source of a lot of heartache for those who want to play the new MOBA from Blizzard, but can’t. A lot of changes are coming too, like Sky Temple, a brand-new map that will pit players against temple guardians as well as enemy te...

Warlords of Draenor – Culling the chaff and the buttons

With the latest expansion just around the corner, BlizzCon didn’t want to delve too deeply in what to expect content-wise in World of WarCraft’s latest expansion. Instead they detailed the design process thus far, and what is happening to all of the classes of WoW. CC got out of control in Mists of Pandaria, and the team wanted to deal with that. It was fast, punishing and discouraged ...

Goblins vs Gnomes – Hearthstone’s first expansion out in Dec

Hearthstone is getting some added card love with Goblins vs Gnomes, a 120 card expansion that embraces the random nature of these two crazy creator races, their crazy machinations exploding, summoning random creatures or doling out random damage and buffs. The card packs will cost the same as expert card packs, so you have a headstart to save up some gold, or get your credit card ready. So how cra...

Before Blizzcon got underway, Blizzard CEO addressed GamerGate

“Before I go on, I’d like to take a moment to talk about something serious,” Mike Morhaime, CEO and president of Blizzard Entertainment started off Blizzcon 2014. “Over the past couple months, there’s been a small group of people who have been doing really awful things. They have been making some people’s lives miserable, and they have been tarnishing our reputa...

All our Blizzcon coverage, love from Wookiee

By the time you read this, I will be sleeping or in a state of delirium thanks to a lack of sleep. Blizzcon 2014 started at 9pm on Friday night, and as luck would have it I had to be in another province on Saturday. So with less than an hour’s sleep I proceeded to travel 4 hours away to catch fish and attend an early Christmas dinner with family members. But you don’t care about that, ...

WookieeCon err, BlizzCon 2014 coverage is coming!

Do you love Blizzard games? I do. From the years I spent way, way, waaaaay too much time in Azeroth, to the loot-crazed runs in Diablo, I have walked a long road with these guys. Blizzard knows that their fans are the core of their product, so every year they host BlizzCon, a festival of gaming and community, with several awesome tournaments and competitions at the same time. This is where the lat...

Review: Monsters & Medicine – Save the creeps!

We spend our lives killing them. Poor little creatures that often show little aggression to us, except maybe self-defense, or protecting their little bit of savings that they keep in that chest in the corner of their room. We don’t think of the poor monsters, or of their children. Monsters & Medicine changes that, putting us in charge of a hospital for all these injured creeps. Running a...

Nomura Channels his Burning Anger into Kingdom Hearts 3

While Kingdom Hearts 3 still has no reslease date, Tetsuya Nomura took some time to talk about the project in the Memorial Ultimania book that released alongside Kingdom Hearts 2.5 in Japan this week. It seems Nomura uses his energy to fuel his projects. [quote] “If I had to pick, I am a person more on the dark side like Xehanort and co., I harness the burning anger in my heart into what I create,...

Apparently Battlefield Hardline Will Work at Launch

According to Visceral, Battlefield Hardline won’t arrive in the same state that Battlefield 4 arrived on release. People might be happy with the experience now, but many were put off by the FUBAR launch. Creative director Ian Milham cut to the chase in a Gamer Revolution interview. [quote] “What you’re basically asking is, ‘Is your game going to work?’ and the answer is yes, it’s gonna work,...
