Iconic Warcraft villain Gul'dan confirmed for Heroes of the Storm

It makes sense that Blizzard is gearing their recent character releases for Heroes of the Storm to coincide with the Warcraft movie, and now, after the release of Medivh yesterday, they've teased the appearance of Gul'dan. For tho...   read

The Warcraft movie might bomb in the US, but overseas receipts may make it the top earning video game film of all time

In the US, the Warcraft film can pretty much only been seen as a bomb -- at least when it comes to its opening weekend. It's expected to make $24.3 million at the box office this weekend (against a budget of $160 million, not including mark...   read

Overwatch has a pretty stiff penalty for habitual match-quitters

Overwatch team looking at Widowmaker for balance changes

The slight nerf to McCree and the undisclosed buff to D.Va are a forgone conclusion. It's happening. But the third character that's currently being looked at is Widowmaker, who is on Blizzard's "radar." I'll let director Jeff Kaplan sum it ...   read

The WoW legacy server group meeting with Blizzard went well, but there are no promises yet

To just about everyone's surprise, Blizzard actually agreed to meet with key personnel from the "Nostalrius" project after shutting down their legacy World of Warcraft servers recently by way of a cease and desist. Project manager Vipe...   read

The poorly received Warcraft film is getting a prequel comic

So uh, that Warcraft film? Poor Duncan Jones. Well, maybe not "poor" Duncan Jones as it seems to be such an international hit that the studio will make a profit on it (note however that films generally need to gross double th...   read

Overwatch characters make such good cats

Overwatch has had no shortage of fan art to further cement its cast in public consciousness. I made some. Blizzard made some. If the crew was a bit less humanoid, a little more pocket monster, there'd probably be enough visual recognition t...   read

Blizzard inadvertently nerfed Bastion with an Overwatch AFK bug snafu

AFKers can be a pretty big problem in team-based games. If just one person is gone at the start of say, a capture match, the opposing side can pretty easily get a foothold and build a perimeter in a 6v5 situation. Blizzard is trying to avoi...   read

If your PC's not powerful enough for Overwatch, this guy's got you covered

The first major Overwatch balance change will be for McCree

Overwatch's director Jeff Kaplan was very forthcoming in regards to my questions about the game pre-launch, and it seems like he's continuing that mentality in a recent interview with Eurogamer. Despite all of the contention with the tick r...   read

Medivh is one tricky asshole in Heroes of the Storm

Very few characters come into Heroes of the Storm and severely shake up the meta. Sure, you have powerhouses like Li Ming and Tracer that get banned often near their launch, but it's rare to see a support or otherwise entirely unique role e...   read
