Blizzard's sending a seriously cool gift to World of Warcraft's ten-year subscribers

A decade is a decent stretch of time by any account, but it's an especially long time to routinely play an MMO. Blizzard wants to recognize the dedication of the select few players that have stuck by World of Warcraft si...

Did Blizzard kill my dreams for a City of Heroes successor? photo
Did Blizzard kill my dreams for a City of Heroes successor?
by Nic Rowen

Spending the last week hearing how great Warlords of Draenor is has put me in a funk. I fondly remember my MMO days, but I've never been able to love another one since City of Heroes was shut down. It left a death-ray-shaped hole in my heart that Orcs, wizards, and dragons just can't fill. Hearing about people exploring new content, experimenting with balance changes, and re-energizing their old guild networks just rubs it in that my rooftop-jumping, spandex-wearing days are over.

Already feeling glum and jealous, I came to a dark realization. If Overwatch was made with re-used assets from Blizzard's scrapped Titan project, and it's all about cartoony-looking superheroes mixing it up in a Pixar-esque world, does that mean Blizzard was working on its own superhero MMO? And they killed it?

My funk just nosedived into full-blown depression.

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor is worth subscribing for again

I've been playing World of Warcraft off and on since it launched in 2004, but the Burning Crusade expansion came at the perfect time in my life. Throughout the years I've been dabbling in the other expansions, ...

The Lost Vikings are in Heroes of the Storm!

Lost Vikings was a big part of my childhood. It taught me a lot of crucial problem solving skills, and while I initially attempted to kill everything in sight with Baleog, I quickly realized that I needed to use every vi...

Hearthstone expansion Goblins vs Gnomes coming this December

This trailer for Goblins vs Gnomes, an expansion for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft hitting next month, sure is fun. I like it when videogame trailers are basically just songs. The expansion will add more than 120 cards, in...

Blizzard announces first new franchise in 17 years, Overwatch
by Steven Hansen

Over at Blizzcon today, Blizzard has announced Overwatch. This is named similarly to Insomniac's original name for Fuse, which was Overstrike, and is also a cartoonish, team-based first-person shooter. 

There is a fighting gorilla in it. And it's coming out sooner than you might expect, with a beta starting in 2015 and Blizzcon attendees able to play it this weekend.

You can sign up for the beta here. There are also little profiles for all of the announced heroes, including gameplay videos. so start calling dibs. I like Hanzo, Tracer, and Mercy for looking like an Evangelion

100% Series Retrospective: Diablo photo
100% Series Retrospective: Diablo
by Chris Carter

Things have been crazy at Destructoid since I became the Reviews Director. On my first week, I had to tackle a new Ratchet & Clank, Super Mario 3D World, and three other games. It hasn't let up after that, and as a result, I haven't had as much time to focus on my Carter's Quest series.

Thankfully though I am often able to incorporate assignments into other works, and since playing a ton of Reaper of Souls on PS4 last month I decided to tackle its predecessors yet again. The Diablo series is among my most-played franchises, so it was an easy adventure to take.
