Breakfast Topic

What helps you keep up with everything added to WoW? It’s not too hard to see that World of Warcraft’s patch 7.3 added a lot of new content to the game. Obviously, the big deal is Argus and its three zones — which, combined with all of the new World Quests they bring with them, is a lot all its own. But 7.3 didn’t just...

When are you taking your alts to Argus? I’ve never really been someone to stray away from my Priest for very long. Sure, I eventually build up a small battalion of alts thanks to the ease of leveling, but I tend to play them sparingly. If I run out of things to do on my Priest or — more likely — want to...




What’s your biggest surprise moment in Legion? What’s been your biggest surprise moment in Legion so far? Was it the Broken Shore, when Varian, Vol’jin and Tirion all died? Was it Sylvanas becoming Warchief? Or was it the culmination of the Stormheim storyline? Maybe it was in Val’sharah, when a certain former Dragon Aspect met her end? Legion has had quite a few...

Did you go to Argus yet? Patch 7.3 has been out for a day or so as I write this, and so there’s been enough time to have at least started on Argus. There are cinematics to be amazed and shocked by, quests to be completed, and World Quests to unlock. Just on my first day there I found myself constantly...

What Blizzard classic would you remaster? Let’s say a genie gives you one wish and then specifies that you have to use it to pick one Blizzard game to get the remaster treatment. First off, that genie’s a jerk. I mean, I can think of so, so many things I’d rather wish for. But there’s no reason not to use the...

What has you excited about patch 7.3? We have the official announcement from Gamescom, the cinematic with ol’ Illidan proving himself a people person throwing shade at Velen, and we know that tomorrow, we’re going to Argus for the final showdown with the Legion. This is something we’ve been building up to since before World of Warcraft. And in the narrative, this is...




Will there be any new Diablo content at BlizzCon? We didn’t get anything at Gamescom, but with the Necromancer proving popular I’m wondering if we’ll see anything from the venerable Diablo franchise at this year’s BlizzCon. We know it’ll be here in a few months, and we know from the recent earnings call that Blizzard was pleased with player response to the Necromancer, but we...

Which rad cinematic from Gamescom was your favorite? Wow. I was expecting a patch 7.3 trailer and an Overwatch short from Gamescom. I was not expecting a World of Warcraft in-game cinematic, an adorable Junkrat/Roadhog teaser, a Heroes of the Storm cartoon, and a full freaking Hearthstone cinematic on top of those. Seriously, you guys, it was overwhelming — in the best kind...



What hasn’t Blizzard revealed at Gamescom that you want? I know some folks really wanted a WoW expansion announcement at Gamescom this year. Me? I wanted some Diablo news. I’ve wanted new Diablo content since forever, and while we’ve seen the original Diablo in D3 and the Necromancer, neither of those are really want I would want. I want something — a new patch, an expansion, maybe even a...

What would make the Trial of Style better? It feels like it was only yesterday the Trial of Style took the World (of Warcraft) by storm, and yet, it’s already time to say goodbye. I still maintain that the Trial was one of the most popular and most successful micro-holidays to be added to the game, but that doesn’t mean it was without...

What do you think the new Overwatch animated short is going to be? It’s almost time for Gamescom, and we’re getting a new Overwatch animated short along with a host of other announcements. Last year, Blizzard revealed The Last Bastion at the convention. This went hand in hand with the new map, Eichenwalde. We’re getting a new map this time around as well, which leads me to wonder...

What new modes should Overwatch do next? Recently we found out that Blizzard is putting a Deathmatch mode in Overwatch. A lot of players have wanted that mode forever, and now it’s coming. But that has me wondering — how many modes does Overwatch need? More importantly, at this point is it lacking anything you’d like it to have? Overwatch seems pretty diverse to...

Are you prepared for the Trial of Style? Transmog addicts rejoice — the Trial of Style is making its debut in World of Warcraft today! The Trial isn’t your usual mini-holiday, it’s a full fledged event that runs through Monday and includes in-game prizes. Transmog prizes, of course, purely cosmetic rewards. Compete against your fellow players to create beautiful transmogs and earn enough...

Can Heroes of the Storm survive without Blackthorne? Yes, Heroes of the Storm can survive without Blackthorne. In fact, it will likely prosper with or without him. I may be a touch eccentric but I’m not quite so far gone that I believe my enormous fanboy crush on a game from 1994 is going to make or break a modern MOBA. However, if I...

What do you want from Blizzard at Gamescom? Gamescom, one of the world’s biggest gaming conventions, starts next week — Tuesday, August 22nd — and in the past it’s seen some pretty big news out of Blizzard. It was at Gamescom that Blizzard announced Legion, for example, back in 2015. Now, more than two years after the announcement and almost a year since Legion launched,...

Are you buying StarCraft: Remastered today? It feels like almost no time at all has passed since Blizzard first announced StarCraft: Remastered, but here we are, ready and able to take the remaster for a spin. I admit, I never actually played the original campaign fully through — by the time I actually got into the StarCraft series, it was several...
