  2. 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.

  7. Blizzard Wants Even More of Your Money: World of Warcraft Microtransactions Confirmed

    Azeroth? More like Casheroth, am I right?

    If buying expansions and paying a monthly fee to play the World of Warcraft wasn't enough fire to burn a hole in your pocket, then Blizzard has good news for you: Items you can buy with real money are on the way. Players recently found an item purchasable with cash that would grant you a 100% EXP bonus on a public test server. When pressed on the subject, Blizzard confirmed that microtransactions are in the works.

  8. Why Raid Grommash Hold When You Can Buy It? Movoto Prices Out the Orc Stronghold

    Grommash Hold is a little rough around the edges, but maybe you could spruce the place up a bit.

    What's a World of Warcraft orcish stronghold going for on today's market? How would one even begin to put a price on a virtual building? What is the real life equivalent of the Horde capital of Orgrimmar? These aren't questions normal people ask themselves. Thankfully, our friends at Movoto aren't normal. They've crunched the numbers and put a theoretical price tag on Grommash Hold. So, how much would it cost? Let's take a look at the numbers.

  10. Cautiously Optimistic: Warcraft Film Picks Up Moon Director

    We're probably the last people that you'd expect to be excited for a film set in the universe of World of Warcraft, but that's the position we find ourselves in now. The movie, Warcraft, is supposed to be a live-action version that takes on Blizzard's franchise, but video game movies are notoriously awful. We've been burned before. That's not to mention the fact that the Warcraft mythos is sprawling and any slight miscalculation on the film's part will be seen as a travesty. Even so, it's been revealed that Duncan Jones, director of sci-fi darling Moon, will be at the helm, and that's left us cautiously optimistic.

  12. World of Warcraft Players Break Fundraising Record for Hurricane Sandy Relief

    World of Warcraft is a community as much as it is a game, and sometimes that community has been called on to help out the real world. Blizzard, the company behind WoW, has hosted fundraising efforts in the past for charities like St. Jude Children's Hospital, the Make a Wish Foundation, and even the relief effort after the devastating 2011 tsunami in Japan. Their latest call to action for players has broken all of their previous fundraising records. Blizzard announced last week that World of Warcraft players have raised $2.3 million dollars for Hurricane Sandy relief.

  16. I Knit Socks, Too: World of Warcraft Playing Politician Responds to Detractors

    +2 Cha -2 Str

    Instead of talking about what they’re doing for Maine people, they’re making fun of me for playing video games... In the last ten months, I've spent no more than forty five minutes playing WoW. I also knit socks—and that too has taken a back seat to my work and my campaign. - State senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz. Lachowicz, running for a Maine senate seat, is under fire from opponents for having a video game hobby, and talking it in the way that any player would. To see more about how she's responding to the campaign, which has included a door to door mailing and a website that implies she is unable to distinguish game life from reality, see The Daily Dot.

  17. World of Warcraft Recreated in Minecraft on 1:1 Scale, Beta Released to All

    Minecraft has been around for a while now -- ages in Internet years -- and we've seen some incredible structures and locations built in the blocky world simulator. Sure, the scope of builds became virtually limitless once people figured out they could throw together some code and use a script that analyzes data from an outside source and then automatically translate it to in-game Minecraft blocks, but even then, some builds are just ridiculous. Case in point, World of Warcraft built in Minecraft. The project has been under construction for quite some time, but the beta was just released. Head on past the break to check out comparisons between the two games, as well as more info on the project.

  18. World of Warcraft Sees Cities Nuked by Hacker, Surprisingly Not a Plague-Related Event

    Every so often, a glitch or exploit will be discovered that causes massive amounts of World of Warcraft folks to die. This typically has something to do with incorrectly set flags, or similar circumstances, that then cause a chain reaction as more folks exacerbate the problem. It wasn't that long ago that Death Knights found they could cast their plagues on friendly units and caused a mass extinction of their own. Yesterday, an exploit was used to fly around killing everyone in range, thus nuking entire cities across multiple servers.

  19. State Senate Candidate Colleen Lachowicz Under Fire from Opponents for Playing World of Warcraft

    If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time

    I'm not sure if this is more disheartening or hilarious. Maine State Senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz has found herself under attack because of a deep, dark secret that, her opponents contend, will negatively impact her ability to represent her constituents. So does she have a history of accepting bribes? Have her credentials been falsified? Does she have ties to the mafia? No. Worse. She plays World of Warcraft.

  20. The New World of Warcraft Expansion Came Out Today, So Lets Have Some Pandas

    Bear Time

    I'm going to assume that if you're reading this, you're not playing World of Warcraft right now. Perhaps you are like me, at work on the morning of a new expansion, bombarded by posts of gameplay, news about how some extreme leveler has reached the new cap of 90, and just itching to get your red-headed dwarf feet on a new continent with plenty of fun new things for your pet bear to chew on. To stave off madness, lets watch some panda videos, which, incidentally, are how I imagine the Pandaren starting zones look right now.
