Warcraft

It seems that after all the whining and complaining I did upon Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft's initial iPad release (which wasn't worldwide, coincidentally) Blizzard decided to go ahead and release it globally today, which...
As a general rule, I don't play a game excessively during its beta stage. I don't particularly like getting invested in something that may utterly change after the full release, and Hearthstone is no exception. Although ...
I never got into Magic: The Gathering. Plenty of my friends did, but I couldn't afford countless booster packs or starter decks, and my mom wouldn't drive me to the seedy local comic book store to play aga...
Attention North America! Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is now in open beta. Blizzard has opened the doors, and best of all they won't be doing anymore wipes, encouraging players to amass their collection. The open beta will...

The last date we had for Duncan Jones' Warcraft movie was December 18, 2015, which might as well be an eternity away at this point. What's another year? Variety has learned that Legendary Pictures and Universal have pushed th...

Steven Luo didn't have access to World of Warcraft when it came out nearly nine years ago, so he decided to make his own game using Warcraft III's editor tools. This year he ported the mod idea fully into StarCraft...
It seems like previous predictions were right on the money. Well, at least the year was right. The latest tweet from the Warcraft Twitter account confirms a release date for the Warcraft film: We’re pleased to announce...
Blizzard has finally done it. Rather than experiment in all of its successful franchises with elements of free-to-play or full-on microtransactions, the company has gone ahead and made a completely free-to-play game from star...
It's been a while since we've talked about the Warcraft card game spin-off, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. Blizzard Entertainment is currently taking beta sign-ups, so I thought it would be a good time to find out what's go...
Blizzard has today lifted the lid on Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, "a fast-paced strategy card game for everyone." You hear that, gay people who want to get married? You too can join in on the fun!  Hearthstone hopes ...
Years ago, Sam Raimi was set to direct Legendary Pictures' film adaptation of World of Warcraft. He left the project quite some time ago, and more recently, Moon director Duncan Jones signed on to fill the vacancy. Speaking t...

Warcraft III is one of my favorite RTS games of all time -- and I've been playing the genre since before the original Command and Conquer in 1995. There's just something about how it perfectly blends all of the best elements...
MMO leader Blizzard has filed against Valve in an attempt to stop it trademarking DOTA, claiming the name has been used in exclusive association with the Warcraft series for more than seven years. It was filed late last year ...
The parade of hi-res orgasm fuel continues with the second day of BlizzCon 11 photos. I can't pretend that I'm all too familiar with Blizzard's repertoire, but I can appreciate like-minded geeks coming together to make any ol...
Blizzcon kicked off on Friday, and for everyone that can't be there, enjoy these very nice pictures. There is cool cosplay, miniature Warcraft action and a three monitor set-up. There is some other stuff too, but the whole th...
Cataclysm has only been out for a few months, but a trademark filed for "Mists of Pandaria" suggests Blizzard may already be starting work on its next World of Warcraft expansion. For those that don't know (basically me, abou...
Never would I have combined the two random thoughts to come up with the idea of a Blizzard-themed theme park. It doesn't quite compute in my head, but the more I think about it, the more I like it. Of course, if there was to ...
Blizzard Entertainment's BlizzCon is always a massive success, so the fact that there's another one schedule for this year isn't a shock. Now you can mark it on your calendar, though: BlizzCon 2011 is taking place October 21 ...
Those crazy guys behind the sex adventure game BoneTown have released a trailer for BoneCraft. BoneCraft is an upcoming fantasy/sci-fi game parodying the famous Blizzard money-makers. The game will have elf prostitutes, horny...

[Editor's Note: At the time of this article's publishing, no genre term had solidified for the DotA style games yet. The "MOBA" term was around but disputed, and in the past few years it has gained some acceptance, but Dota 2...

It's December, and you know what that means -- holiday card time! Blizzard kicked it off today, with this cute little holiday card landing in our inboxes. If Santa Claus was an orc, that's something I could definitely get behind, let me tell you.  Happy Holidays back at you, Blizzard. Now give us the surprise gift of Starcraft 2 beta. Or Diablo III. 
We're not even sure if it's news, but we've written about far less in the past, so here I go. Blizzard's Official Warcraft Twitter account is teasing something for this Thursday. What? We already said what -- "something." Pay...
Blizzard’s annual BlizzCon expo celebrating all things StarCraft, Warcraft and Diablo isn’t as profitable as one might think. Despite selling 20,000 tickets at $125 a pop, a ton of merchandising at the con and the...
It's been more than seven years since Blizzard released Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, and yet here I am playing the real-time strategy with as much enthusiasm as when I first bought it. No, the single-player campaign isn't th...

Today, Blizzard Entertainment has announced that World of Warcraft's subscriber base has hit 11.5 million players. Wait, hold on -- didn't we just report on October 28 that it hit 11 million? Yikes. The spike in subscrib...
A "happy holidays" card from Blizzard just landed in our mailbox today, I don't think I'll ever look at the Lich King the same way again.  Seriously, I'm digging this art style. It reminds me a bit of Capcom's ...
World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King was released on November 13, and not only has someone reached the level cap, but one kid has already managed to make himself sick over it. A 15-year-old gamer from Sweden needed the h...
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: World of Warcraft people are scary. They are like machines. They cannot be reasoned with, they cannot be bargained with, and in extreme cases, they cannot be dragged away from a PC ...
[video]111114:708[/video] I get a lot of phone calls, many from phone numbers I don't recognize. I'm a man of technology, preferring to do my business over email and text messages, so I let many go straight to voice mail.When...
