Did you manage to get your tickets? I'm sure there will be plenty of folks who are returning to BlizzCon. I wasn't able to go but I followed WoW Insider's coverage of the event from the opening ceremonies to the final concert. It was an awesome time for fans to get insight on some of the behind the ...

If you were one of the lucky few who happened to attend both this BlizzCon and the one in 2005, you would have noticed, as I did, the subtle changes that separated the two. Some of the changes were physical and others were harder to catch. In 2005 when we arrived at the arena, the sense of exciteme...

Nearly a week after the big event and I think we've managed to run out of photos and information to post about it. (Okay... I admit, I still have a pile of photos, but haven't had the time to resize them all yet.) So what's left to say about BlizzCon 2007? Just our final impressions of the event (...

We're back today with another winner from Blizzard's BlizzCon machinima contest! Today we have Associate Professor Evil Kills All Gold Farmers, an entry from Oxhorn which landed 2nd place in the Action/Adventure category. And if you don't follow Oxhorn's machinima, like we do, you may miss that th...

This entry in the 2007 BlizzCon machinima contest won the Comedy category. It's the latest episode in the series by Oblivious Films, The Grind. You know, squirrels can be deadly when cornered, especially on Friendship Day....

I've never really had an opportunity to play Upper Deck's World of Warcraft-based TCG. Sure, I own some cards, I've skimmed the rulebook, and shuffled through them admiring the artwork. But my friends all play World of Warcraft -- not the TCG, which means I've never really had an opportunity to pl...

While a name like WoW Radio doesn't inspire thoughts of video, but I'm here to tell you that they did an excellent job of getting us video of the major happenings of BlizzCon 2007. So if you didn't get a chance to attend, I highly recommend taking a look at their BlizzCon page, which features vide...

Those wacky kids over at Joystiq have managed to snag a couple of very interesting interviews with high-profile bloggers attending this years' BlizzCon, and both of them provide an interesting persperctive on the event. First up, the opinions of Cory Doctorow, blogger, journalist, and science-fict...

Not everyone who entered a film in the BlizzCon machinima contest could win, but there were certainly some great nominees this year. This piece was a 2007 nominee in the Drama category. When I first saw Dead Rain, I admit I was freaked at a couple of points during the film, but then again I am a bi...

During my time at BlizzCon I was able to take a couple of moments to experience some of the upcoming content we are going to see in the future. Initially I was very excited to get my chance to see Wrath of the Lich King, but as I was wandering around Howling Fjord I noticed a helpful looking NPC in...

Oh sure. Blizzard may have announced Wrath of the Lich King, showed off demos of StarCraft II, and given us loads of exclusive time with the developers at BlizzCon... but all of that pales in comparison to the real reason we all had to attend BlizzCon: to see the Blizzard-band Level 70 Elite Tauren...

While wandering the BlizzCon floor on Saturday I ran into the Myndflame team. Clint Hackleman was kind enough to spend a couple of minutes to speak with me about "Escape from Orgrimmar," the much-anticipated sequel to Illegal Danish. I was very eager to speak with him considering that those of us ...

Last night's costume contest was immensely impressive. There were a total of 98 entries and all of them obviously took a lot of time -- and some of them clearly took a lot of creativity. I still think my personal favorite was the fellow who dressed up in a costume like the in-game Murloc costume -...

You may recall that there were a few contests going on at BlizzCon, one of them being a machinima contest (and the machinima that comes out of major contests like this is always incredible!). Well, in last night's contests session, we found out who won and saw the premieres of the three winning vi...

While the WoW Insiders out here in Anaheim haven't been following the ongoing Arena tournament too closely, I can tell you the action is getting pretty exciting. Power Trip, professional gamers with Team Pandemic, was swept out of the tournament in the first round with a 3-0 loss to Warders of the...

Editor's Note: The video has been removed. This video is (sadly!) just a partial representation of the dance contest entries. After a hard afternoon on the conference floor, the video camera decided to run dead after about ten minutes of footage. But you'll get a feel for what the contest was lik...

The first day of BlizzCon wrapped up with a series of contests -- and we were on the scene grabbing some video. So here we have the first of the evening's contests, the Character Sound-Alike Contest, lasting around 30 minutes in all. Yes, that's 30 minutes of players doing everything from "Zug Zug!...

Yeah, yeah. It's nice to come to the convention and attend developer panels about how they develop the classes and how they build the dungeons. And sure, it's fun to play brand new, cutting edge, not even close to being released yet content. But the real reason to come to a nerd convention like thi...

As you may already know if you've been following my Twitter updates from the BlizzCon floor, I've spent the last several hours standing in line to play the latest World of Warcraft expansion, Wrath of the Lich King. And while I want nothing more than to tell you just how incredible this expansion ...
