We know that Blizzard celebrates the holiday season in-game with plenty of decorations and tacky sweaters, and as it turns out their real-world celebrations aren't that different. For this holiday season, the famed orc statue in front of Blizzard HQ has gotten its own special holiday makeover -- an...

For a very special holiday gift, Nixxiom and Moocluck challenged one another to a machinima-off to create the best seasonal video. In Nixxiom's creation, two bad guys try to take advantage of The Madness of Winters Veil to get what they really want under the tree. Of course, things don't turn out f...

The season of gift giving is here. It's always an odd one for us Azerothian gamers. We'd love to give WoW related gifts, but there's only so many stuffed animals and game cards one wife or husband should receive. So while asking our intrepid staff of WoW journalists what they're playing this weeken...

'Tis the season to start revelling in the glory of Winter's Veil. To help create some classic music for us all to enjoy during the holiday, Cranius wrote and produced GreatFather Winter. While this video was originally created a year ago, it remains fresh and vibrant even today. I think that Cr...

Surprise! It's December already, which means the winter holidays are just around the corner. According to Blizzard's calendar, Winter's Veil will be upon us in just two short weeks, and if patch 3.3 does drop next week as expected, it'll seem even shorter than that (I'm sure that the new Dungeon Fi...

Upper Deck has posted on their site that they have canceled the upcoming Darkmoon Faire event in France for the TCG.

Cabinetsanchez over on LJ has documented something that I saw in action yesterday while running a few instances -- while it's a ton of fun to run my Crashin' Thrashin Racer around (I'm undefeated since I picked up the achievement the first day I got the toy, by the way), players have found a few ext...

If you're trying to finish up some of your Winter Veil achievements (which are all mandatory if you want to get the Violet Proto-Drake one day), remember that you don't have much time left. Today is the last full day of the holiday. It ends tomorrow (the 2nd) at 6 AM according to the in-game calenda...

Oh the weather outside is frightful... and for that matter, so is the above gnome Santa. We're not sure what kind of mayhem he's got planned, but we're really glad we're just getting a screenshot of this scary-looking gnome. Johanis, ever the brave World of Warcraft contributor, sent in this spooky...
