The Daily Hotness: World of Warcraft: The Movie

I still have a hard time believing that a movie based on WoW is actually coming out. And by Sam Raimi no less. I wonder if there will be some super emo scene with a troll as he dances randomly on the streets like a creep.

Chad loves Telltale, Matt reviewed Roogoo: Twisted Towers, Castle Crashers is coming to PSN, Uncharted 2 gets dated, Visceral Studios execs leave to join a new Activision studio, there are a ton of videogame comics on the way and plenty more happened on 07/22/09.
