Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is now available for free in open beta

Blizzard’s newest game, Hearthstone, is now free to play in open beta for PC and Mac, with versions for iOS and Android coming soon. It’s a digital collectible card game, along the lines of Magic: The Gathering, but simpler, faster and with heroes, classes, stories and abilities from Warcraft. The open beta has actually been open for a couple days now, but I’ve been… busy. Can’t talk, got warlocks to kill.

Oh, and the NSA has secret agents all up in your World of Warcraft, kek

It’s bad enough that the NSA is mining your phone calls, emails and text messages, but they’ve also got spooks inside games like World of Warcraft, trying to break up Orc terrorist cells and fucking up your raid with shitty healers. In addition to WoW, the NSA has also put down stakes in Second Life and on Xbox Live, so be careful of the noobs you’re griefing, because one may just be a spy.

Blizzard reveals plot details about the Warcraft movie at this year’s Blizzcon

While Blizzard is usually pretty secretive about what they’re working on, at this year’s Blizzcon, they did reveal that the Warcraft movie will in fact be much more Warcraft and not really WoW. Directed by Duncan Jones, the film will start appropriately at the beginning, taking on the events and players of the Orc vs. Human war that was the basis of the original Warcraft game. So probably no Pandaren, that’s good.

Announcement trailer for the next World of Warcraft expansion, Warlords of Draenor

If you thought the Pandaren expansion was silly and childish what with its fat, cute pandas and shit, the next expansion is all business, going back in time to look at the home world of the Orcs as they rose to power, nearly drove the Draenei to extinction before taking the fight to Azeroth. There are no new classes or races, but there’s an entire new planet (not just a new continent) to discover, a level cap of 100, a tremendous amount of backstory and a brand new garrison system, where you get to build your own fortified town full of NPCs to do your bidding.

World of Warcraft movie finally gets a release date of December 15 2015

Much like Blizzard’s games, the progress and status of the World of Warcraft movie has been often shrouded in secrecy, subject to wild rumors and victim to business politics. For a while, Guillermo Del Toro had been tentatively signed on to direct, then he dropped out, then there were all kinds of budget problems and Blizzard just being Blizzard in taking their own glacial time time to get things going. But now the movie has a new director in Duncan Jones (Moon) and now it has a release date of December 15, 2015. 

The December 2015 release date makes the end of 2015 a huge one for huge bazillion dollar blockbusters, putting the WoW movie against Batman vs Superman, Star Wars Episode VII, Avengers Age of Ultron, Ant Man and a new Jurassic Park movie.

Red Hot World Of Warcraft Cosplay

This is Tasha from the Korean cosplay group Spiral Cats. She’s super pretty and cosplays as different ladies from all corners of geek culture. Above she can be seen as Alexstrasza from World of Warcraft. It’s totally understandable if you want to, like, build a shrine in her honor or something. She kind of has that effect on dudes.

This video starts right after this guy and his lady friend had been having sex. Apparently, he was playing WoW, had his web cam on and then forgot to turn it off when things got romantic around the apartment. Skip to about 3 minutes when he realizes the camera’s been on the whole time.

Maine’s level 68 Orc rogue wins her seat in the state senate

State senate races don’t often get hot and heated, and almost never make national news, but when Colleen Lachowicz’s opponent tried to use Ms. Lachowicz’s World of Warcraft pastime, it was too stupid to not pay attention to. But perhaps that attention did some good, because Lachowicz won her state senate race yesterday. FOR THE HORDE.
