Battle for Azeroth First Impressions

World of Warcraft’s newest expansion: Battle for Azeroth, is a breath of fresh gaming air. The last expansion, Legion, was fun albeit visually repetitive at the end. Seriously – can we get some blue sky for the Love of Elune? Argus doubled down on the scorched-earth-and-black-sky motif that ran roughshod over the rest of the graphics. We’re now…

Walking the floor at PAX East 2018

#PAXEast2018 has been a blast! Starting out as a calm morning, weather in Boston quickly turned into a snowstorm. Luckily the snow didn’t stick, but windows all along the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center offered a stark, cold contrast to the warm and cozy confines of gaming buffs and cosplay heroes.

Vanilla World of Warcraft (or Classic to be know from here-forth), still brings back sweet memories and haunting boss drops. Whether played for fun or as a lifestyle, the first iteration of WoW changed the culture of online gaming forever. I remember stopping at Best Buy off of Route 43 somewhere between Lake Geneva and…

19 Nerdy Pick Up Lines for Gamers (Memes Included)

Let me be exquisitely blunt, friends: pick-up lines don’t work. Sure, sometimes you may garner a laugh, but you’ve probably got a better chance beating Contra without the Konami code than landing a phone number with a pick-up line – and NO, if you get one of these numbers it doesn’t count (thanks Buzzfeed!).

We Just Landed on CNET Magazine!

World of Warcraft Movie Has One Chance to Deliver

We want the upcoming World of Warcraft film to be the bees’ knees. Actually, we want it to deliver more than the final Hobbit installment delivered. The problem, though, isn’t that the film should be great. The problem is that films adapted from video games are a tough sell. Remember Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within?…
