I don't know if the world is ready for Junkrat in a MOBA

More Overwatch in Heroes of the Storm is just what everyone wanted, right? Well, it's what I want (I wouldn't mind if every character was in eventually), but a lot of people have pushed back on it. Some of the power creep -- like ...

Here's how Ana translates to Heroes of the Storm

Before she joins Heroes of the Storm next week, Blizzard has a spotlight video for Ana. There are a lot of familiar elements here, from healing and sleep darts to grenades and a Nano Boost ultimate. The two things I'm most down with: being...

Blizzard clamps down on Heroes of the Storm pro player

Dealing with harassment at the highest level of play is a tricky issue for any publisher. On one hand, and this is my personal view, no one is above the law. If someone is ruining a game by refusing to play and cursing out their teammates, ...

Moustache powers unleashed in Heroes of the Storm

The moustache has become a hot topic since the news that actor Henry Cavill must have his digitally removed for Justice League reshoots. Now it seems that the lads and lasses of Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm might be next in need of a digi...

Garrosh is a contentious hero but damn he's fun to play

Garrosh, another widely requested hero to follow up the perhaps most requested Malthael, has entered the arena in Heroes of the Storm. Much like his storyline players are already up in arms regarding his abilities and fantasy, but afte...

Garrosh is a pure tank in his first MOBA outing

Blizzard has revealed the full kit for Garrosh Hellscream, the newest World of Warcraft Warrior to enter Heroes of the Storm's Nexus. Garrosh is a full-on damage sponge (which the game needed more of), backed by his trait that gives him mor...

StarCraft's Alexei Stukov is next for Heroes of the Storm

Blizzard promised that 2017 would be a good year for supports in Heroes of the Storm, and they're making good on that promise with Alexei Stukov. Yes the StarCraft Infested Terran is back, and although he doesn't seem like a dedicated heal...

[Update: Here's a list of talents and the spotlight!] Diablo is one of the most requested universes for Heroes of the Storm, and now we have another addition to the Nexus -- Malthael from Diablo III. He's an assassin that can sustain himsel...

Here's a look at Heroes of the Storm's version of D.Va

Starting today D.Va will be playable in the PTR for Heroes of the Storm, which means her talents and abilities as they relate to a top-down MOBA have come to light. D.Va will retain her "in and out of mech/MEKA" kit from Overwatch, and can ...

Blizzard is giving out 20 characters in Heroes of the Storm

Blizzard is looking to bring new players into Heroes of the Storm with next week's major "2.0" launch. Things like Genji and Hanamura from Overwatch, a refresh of the progression system, loot chests, and emoji are all well and good. But eve...

A better look at Heroes of the Storm's Pylon-warping Probius

If a worker unit can end up becoming a fleshed-out character for Heroes of the Storm, I have to wonder what other weird paths Blizzard might one day take the roster down. Probius, "the bravest of the probes," has that oddball appeal. But w...

It's time Heroes of the Storm took another look at Brawls

Heroes of the Storm's "Brawls" were a good idea when they were originally pitched months ago. Providing something akin to what League of Legends had with Dominion (a now defunct arena-type game), or better yet, Blizzard's own "Brawls" ...

Diablo is invading Blizzard's other games

It's hard to believe, but the original Diablo came out 20 years ago on December 31. I remember thinking it was strange that such a huge game was coming out after Christmas, even then. My first time playing was at a friend's dorm room a...

Warcraft's Zul'jin is next for Heroes of the Storm

The next character confirmed for Heroes of the Storm is Zul'jin, the axe-throwing forest troll you might remember from Warcraft II or his later appearance in World of Warcraft. Admittedly, I had to think back for a moment, but looking at im...

Heroes of the Storm's Winter Veil event, Ragnaros, out today

A massive patch just dropped for Heroes of the Storm, fundamentally changing several characters, bringing in a new fan favorite (Ragnaros), and a 25% bonus XP event that also doubles as a way to get an extra free mount and profile picture. ...

Ragnaros enters Heroes of the Storm in today's big PTR update

Ragnaros is the latest Heroes of the Storm addition, and based on Chris' time with the World of Warcraft character at BlizzCon, he sounds fun as hell with his ability to fire off waves of lava and even take over forts and keeps. The Firelor...
