Blizzard is holding a 12th anniversary event for World of Warcraft

I have a lot of fond memories from the launch of World of Warcraft. I was never huge into the Warcraft series, but I loved the art style and the lore behind each entry. Getting to play a constantly evolving plot inside of a massive world wi...   read

Let's all watch the Overwatch voice actors goof off

There won't be a remaster for the original Warcraft

I'm not one for needless remasters of titles that you can still buy. To me, they almost make me feel stupid for investing so much money and faith in a developer. The Uncharted remaster, especially, is just plain better than the originals, n...   read

Blizzard's 10th anniversary of BlizzCon was sufficiently grandiose

Diablo III director: 'Creating a carbon copy of the D2 Necromancer would be cheating'

Blackheart's Revenge is a perfect example of what Heroes of the Storm Brawls should be

Brawls are basically fresh out of the oven for Heroes of the Storm, but they've already been pretty divisive. First up was the Punisher arena, which assigned random heroes to each player, and was generally very well received. Rounds were qu...   read

Blizzard admits mistakes were made with World of Warcraft's last expansion, is looking ahead with Legion

For Blizzard, World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor was a learning experience. Subscribers dropped off at a record pace, mostly because the team didn't support it nearly as much as past expansions, a mistake they're not keen to repeat for ...   read

Heroes of the Storm devs happy with Brawls so far, will 'keep making them indefinitely'

Heroes of the Storm is in a good spot, relatively speaking. It's probably the smallest Blizzard game, and came into the MOBA market pretty late after League of Legends already had a massive foothold, but it's doing well enough for...   read

Blizzard has faithfully recreated the Necromancer in Diablo III, yet, is it enough?
