Accidental upload reveals Chromie and Medivh for Heroes of the Storm

Well, my guesses for the next Heroes of the Storm character were off, but a few of you nailed it. Good job! That vague dragon teaser was hinting at Chronormu, who will be playable in the game in gnome form as Chromie. Blizzard accidentally ...   read

League of Legends' next Champion gets her own Airbender anime intro

Did you think Riot Games would stop introducing Champions at some point? Silly person. League of Legends is getting yet another character soon in the form of Taliyah, the Stoneweaver, and as usual she sports an interesting aesthetic an...   read

It looks like a dragon is coming to Heroes of the Storm

I've spent too much time trying to freeze-frame and figure out this teaser for a new Heroes of the Storm character. My first instinct was to go straight to Deathwing (too easy!), but I've seen convincing speculation that it could be Alexst...   read

This Tracer trailer for Heroes of the Storm is so dang charming

I haven't gotten to play as Tracer in Heroes of the Storm yet because I don't have Overwatch pre-ordered and she won't be widely available for purchase in the store until next week, but that's okay. There's this utterly adorable animation...   read

No ifs, ands, or butts: Heroes of the Storm's Tracer is a beast

Blizzard seemed unsure of Overwatch at first. Before the warm reception in the beta, it only toyed with the idea of releasing a character to represent it in Heroes of the Storm, citing that one would only come after the launch of ...   read

Capturing that 'nothing but net' sound in Heroes of the Storm

I'm always fascinated by video game sound design. I mean sure, we've all seen about a million features of the Gran Turismo dudes crawling under sports cars to get the exact pitch of the exhaust right, so some of the mystery is gone. But I c...   read

League of Legends' Taric has been updated, looks dreamier

Heroes of the Storm's Dehaka feels undertuned but fun

Heroes of the Storm has added the Zerg Warrior Dehaka today, and even though he's enjoyable, I doubt he'll shake up the meta much. Dehaka's kit is enticing. His Q can pull enemies like a more effective Stitches hook; his E burrows to avoid ...   read

StarCraft's Artanis as a shogun? I'm feeling it. Blizzard is also demoing "Shadowpaw" Li Li and the recently-revealed Dehaka, who even with an alternate "Mecha" skin is missing part of an arm. Also, he knows Drake's dance moves. I rarely d...   read
