  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    And Now For Something Completely Different

    Do we know what Warcraft will be about? Do we know what characters, or even what races, will be in it? No. But we know the motherflippin' Kurgan from Highlander will be there. And that's perfect.

  7. 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.

  8. 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...

    It took Lara Clarke of Tasty Cakes 90 hours to make this 5’5”-tall Captain Jack Sparrow cake. Worth every second, I say. (That’s Nerdalicious)

  10. Check out Critical Hit, A New VG Cover Band Founded By World of Warcraft’s Composer [Video]

    They've somehow managed to make us enjoy Angry Birds!

    Jason Hayes really likes video game music -- as the in-house composer for Blizzard Entertainment, it's sort of his thing. But apparently writing for World of Warcraft, Diablo 2, and Starcraft wasn't fulfilling enough, because now he's got a new project where he brings professional musicians together to perform famous video game songs.
