  1. Things We Saw Today: The Avengers Are Gathering At SDCC

    You thought I was going to say "assembling," didn't you?

    Bruce Banner himself posted this photo of himself and the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast gettin' it together at San Diego Comic-Con today. This looks like the best hang out. (via Instagram)

  2. 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!)

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.
