    #Blessed.

    Because honestly, what's the point of spending all that time crafting yourself a pair of Tankatronic goggles if you can't see yourself looking cool in them?

  3. Gamers Beware, the Great World of Warcraft Name Purge Is Coming

    LLLEEEEROYYYY JENKINS

    Blizzard has announced that when the next World of Warcraft patch comes out, a whole bunch of old usernames will go the way of the dodo. Hey, as long as Everquest leaves the Half-Elf warrior I got to level three back in high school alone, I'm fine.

    Phenomenal cosmic powers...

    Impatient World of Warcraft players have been mining for evidence of Robin Williams' tribute in the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion "Warlords of Draenor." They've found several NPC character models under the name of Robin that appear to pay homage to Williams' characters (including a Genie model present in a previous expansion), and now players of the expansion's beta demo have come upon a definite Genie tribute in-game.

  5. Fan Petition to Memorialize Robin Williams With World of Warcraft NPC Succeeds

    *Standing on desk.*

    We've all been dealing with the passing of Robin Williams in our own way, and for World of Warcraft players, that way was to create a petition to have him honored in the video game he loved. Only a short while later, they've already gotten an answer.

  8. Things We Saw Today: A Discworld Cake, Complete With Giant Turtle

    Note: not a full-size replica.

    I can't say that I've ever wondered what the Great A'Tuin tastes like, but apparently it's filled with chocolate mint grasshopper cake. (by Art2Eat Cakes, via That's Nerdalicious!)

  9. The Slow Grind, or, How I’m Relearning How To Play Games

    WTB Cracked Leather Pants PST

    There are few game environments etched into my brain in as much detail as the Night Elf starting area in World of Warcraft. I can remember it almost as well as if it were a real place. Giant trees, rolling hills, wisps and moon wells and purple mist. Azeroth held many wonders, but Teldrassil always felt like home.

  10. Actor Ben Foster Reveals His Role In The Warcraft Movie

    Meanwhile...

    Ishnu'alah, dear readers. The Warcraft movie wrapped up shooting last week, but it's got another twenty months of post-production ahead. The plot is still shrouded in mystery, though we do know that it will focus on the first contact between orcs and humans. As of yesterday, we've got a confirmed actor/character pairing, thanks to an IGN interview with Ben Foster. And yeah, it's one of the big names. Possible spoilers, though very small ones.

  12. Apparently Dudes Who Use Female Avatars In MMORPGs Aren’t Doing It Right

    There's more to being a lady than using winking smiley faces, guys!

    You can play literally any type of character you want in most MMORPGs. Feel like being a dwarf? Awesome. A shapeshifer? Go for it. So of course some curious players are going to wonder what it's like to be a gender other than the one they identify as. But when male players try to roleplay female characters, they start acting kinda weird. Like, really weird.

  13. Attention All Roleplayers, Fanfic Authors, and Simmers: Drop What You’re Doing And Play Storium

    Review

    I’m no stranger to group storytelling. In high school, I wrote fanfic with a friend, swapping a spiral-bound notebook back and forth. During that same time I was working at a renaissance faire and my inbox overflowed with email threads of in-character letters. When I was in college, I was an active participant in a Star Trek sim. My World of Warcraft guild forums had a section dedicated to roleplaying. And in recent years, after I moved countries, my previously-local friends and I went through a short period of playing Parsely and Dungeons & Dragons via Google Hangouts. So believe me when I say — if you like to roleplay, if you like collaborative storytelling, if you have gaming friends you can’t meet in person, Storium is what you’ve been looking for.

  14. Study Finds That Online Gaming Is Actually Good For Your Social Life, Mom

    It's like going out to socialize, except less pants.

    Online gaming is not solely the refuge of lonely, anti-social nerd bros like Warcraft guy from that episode of South Park. A new study, surprising no one who actually plays games online, shows that gaming online actually expands players' social lives, instead of limiting them. Almost like you're playing with real people online. Because you are.

  16. Forget Those Other Let It Go Mashups and Watch the Song Sync Perfectly With the Lich King

    We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty

    Shh, shh, I don't want to hear about how this second or that was cut out of the video or song, I just want to believe that Elsa's song matches up perfectly with the cinematic trailer to my favorite World of Warcraft expansion, in which the Lich King, an amalgamate identity ruled now by the form of Arthas the Butcher, former prince of Menethil, raises the the unwilling corpse of a mad dragon's consort to join his shambling armies before he rides out to extinguish all life on Azeroth. I want to believe.

  17. Disney Characters as Warriors of Azeroth

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    LiberLibelula's redesign of Snow White as if she were a World of Warcraft character would explain why she hung out with all those dwarven men. But there are six other redesigns for you to check out in this gallery. For the rest of Liber's art, check out her DeviantArt page! ...okay, but also, Pocahontas is totally a Night Elf Druid, Stitch is a Goblin, the Beast is a Worgen Warrior, Merida is a Dwarf Hunter, and Ariel is a Human.

  18. The World of Warcraft Movie Knows What It’s About, Casts The Kurgan From Highlander

  19. NSA Tried to Find Terrorists by Playing Online Games, Genius Plan Somehow Failed

    "Freeze, scumbag! Drop the duck!"

    You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than... Xbox Live? OK, we might not be willing to repeat some of the trash talk we've heard there, but it's a bit amusing to imagine a bunch of intelligence agents deciding that it's a good place to do surveillance for terrorists. It's much easier to imagine they just thought it'd be fun.

  20. The Fantastical Imagination Of Artist Story Sabatino

    Heffalumps and Woozles

    Story Sabatino (Oozn on DeviantArt) has a style that jumped out at me immediately. While she does some wicked fan art inspired by things like Game of Thrones, she also creates wonderful scenarios of her own with some interesting creatures. See for yourself...
