Take a photo tour of Blizzard's awesome offices photo



Even though Jonathan visited Blizzard HQ twice over the summer and brought back a few photos, Blizzard has always been a rather secretive company. In an industry full of leaks and rumors, Blizzard keeps most of its info and inner-workings under wraps, managing Azeroth from afar from what is surely a tower made of fetal bones and teeth. Even the name of the company evokes something remote, barren, and off-limits. 

Well, Entertainment Web has blown their cover: they've collected over a hundred photos that reveal that not only is Blizzard staffed by humans (as opposed to warlocks and doom-virgins, like I thought), but that their offices are swanky as hell.

I have to admit that my office at work isn't that bad: I've got a nice new computer to work on, a huge desk, plenty of shelf space, and more candied almonds than I'll ever eat. What I don't have is a beach volleyball court, a library full of science fiction and video games, or giant statues of orcs riding on coyotes. Blizzard's offices have all of those things, and it's no surprise that Starcraft II isn't out yet—wouldn't you rather play in your company's arcade than, y'know, work?

Here's how to get Hearthstone on your iPad if it isn't out in your region

I've seen quite a few people sigh at Hearthstone's recent iPad port rollout, because currently the game is only available in a select few regions, leaving a couple of major countries out of the loop (like the US). But it's actually pretty easy to download it on your iPad in minutes, using a simple region change method that you can do entirely within your device.more

Reaper of sales: Diablo III expansion has sold over 2.7 million

In its first week of availability, the first Diablo III expansion, Reaper of Souls, has reaped 2.7 million sales. Uhm. I mostly just wanted to write "Reaper of sales." I don't have anything else to say. Good job to Blizzard for responding to fan feedback with a $40 expansion that everyone went out and paid for, apparently. Path of Exile is free if you like click click click click games.more
