No escape: Hearthstone is now playable on phones

Blizzard's digital collectible card game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (that's harthstone, not herthstone) will be available as a free download on iPhone and Android phones beginning today. If you mispronounce the name, Kyle will break into your home, drop your phone in the toilet, and steal all of your rice. He told me that and whispered while saying it so he means business here.

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void seeks to conclude the trilogy with an exciting finale photo
StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void seeks to conclude the trilogy with an exciting finale
by Alessandro Fillari

Where were you when that debut trailer for StarCraft II popped up online? It made its announcement all the way back in 2007 at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational in South Korea. Much has changed since then. With the release of two StarCraft II titles so far, Blizzard has been trying to keep things interesting for the series in the face of evolving tastes and new games.

But one thing sure hasn't changed in the time since its debut all those years ago. People are still very much into the series, and with the final expansion rearing its head, the developers at Blizzard want players to get some hands-on time with the legendary real-time strategy title before its official release. Which, of course, hasn't quite been revealed yet.

During GDC, I got the opportunity to speak with Blizzard about its plans for the future of StarCraft, and how the upcoming expansion plans to tie everything up in dramatic and epic fashion.

Blizzard's multiplayer FPS Overwatch adds a gunslinger and a bodybuilder

I keep forgetting that Blizzard is off working on a team-based shooter called Overwatch. Maybe part of the problem is the name? It's definitely not the characters -- there's a spacesuit-wearing gorilla with glasses named Win...
