BlizzCon

My dream MUSE playlist for BlizzCon’s closing ceremony MUSE — that band you’ve probably heard but may not have realized it — is going to close out BlizzCon 2017. And, as I think I’ve made more than clear, this has me incredibly excited. But more importantly, it should have everyone excited, because MUSE puts on some of the best live shows out there....

BlizzCon 2017 Early Access Gear Sale is now live It looks like Blizzard wasn’t quite done when they announced the rest of this year’s in-game goodies.

MUSE to close out BlizzCon and also make me cry happy tears Have you ever literally can’t even? Because I have — right now, in fact. Why? Because the closing act for BlizzCon 2017 was just announced, and it’s one I’ve been wanting to see close BlizzCon for years: MUSE. Excuse me while I compose myself.

What are you most looking forward to on the BlizzCon schedule? This year’s official BlizzCon schedule was released yesterday and now we’ve got an idea of what to (mostly) expect. We all know about the big stuff on the main stages, but unfortunately the dynamics of the convention hall meant that in the past only the larger stages were televised. Smaller and more interesting stages like...

Sorry, Diablo fans, there won’t be any news for you at BlizzCon I am a huge Diablo fan. I have played since the first game’s release, and the end cinematic of Diablo 1 still ranks in my top 10 gaming moments. I was fortunate enough to be at the Worldwide Invitational when Blizzard announced Diablo 3. The stage lit up with dramatic red lighting and a a guitar...

BlizzCon 2017 pre-show videos talk about Ezra Chatterton, cosplay, and more The first set of pre-show video episodes leading up to BlizzCon have gone up for this week and they seem to have a little bit for everyone.

BlizzCon 2017 Virtual Ticket features more coverage than ever If you’re like me and you can’t get to BlizzCon this year, the Virtual Ticket is a good way to get to see the various panels and keep abreast of what’s going on at the convention. But one of the big complaints a lot of us who get the Virtual Ticket often have is that...

Does Jaina appearing on BlizzCon key art mean anything? Probably not Earlier this month, Blizzard Entertainment revealed Jaina Proudmoore will be representing World of Warcraft on this year’s BlizzCon key art. We’ve been debating whether or not this actually means anything for what’s to come in World of Warcraft — and honestly, probably not. Chromie was the WoW representative in BlizzCon 2016’s key art and we...
