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 w...

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 vid...

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 like,...

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 t...

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 i...

While we'll know for certain what the next expansion will be in just a few more days, it's hard to stop speculating. Right now we've got lots of evidence supporting the idea of a Northrend expansion (there's the music, as well as some excellent supporting facts), but we've also got unnamed sources...
