Love it or hate it, ever since Naxx came out Deathrattle decks have gotten a lot more prominent. Undertaker is such a good card, with the potential to really take over games with the correct hand. But whether you are a fan of the mechanic or not, Goblins vs. Gnomes is poised to turn the meta upside down.  While Feign Death is an extremely powerful card for Deathrattle decks, Lil’ Exoricist and the Scarlet Purifier are here to even out the odds. Who do you think got the best part of the deal? Let us know your opinion on these three cards revealed today in the official Hearthstone blog. Also, remember to check out all the 50+ cards revealed thus far in our complete spoiler list....

It appears that the topic of the AMA will be discussing what was shown at BlizzCon 2014. You can read the full details of the upcoming Reddit AMA here Hello all! Now that BlizzCon 2014 is over and you’ve had a few weeks to digest all the newly discussed Heroes, features, and content, we wanted to take some time to answer any lingering Heroes questions that may have surfaced since the event. To follow-up, members of the Heroes development team at Blizzard Entertainment will be partaking in a Reddit AMA at r/heroesofthestorm on December 4th, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. PST.

Someone over at Overpwn.com discovered the art assets for Overwatch has been added to the battle.net client and the folks at Overpwn were able to confirm it. Now, this really isn’t huge news or even mean that anything is happening, but I do believe we might be seeing the beginning of Friends and Family Alpha sometime after the Thanksgiving holiday. The reason I believe we’re actually that close to a F&F Alpha? Well, while at BlizzCon while I was standing in line to play Overwatch, a Blizzard employee was in front of me with his family and friends waiting to play as well. That’s when Frank Pearce (Blizzard co-founder) walked by and asked him why he was in line to play the game when it’s going to be available to play in the office “in just a couple weeks”. It seems quite possible that this game is certainly further along ...

Blizzard says this sale is for Friday only, however, it appears the sale is currently happening right now. It looks like it’s probably going to end this Friday November 28....

Ars Arcanum: Belt of the Trove

by Stephen Stewart on

Books have often been society’s only bastion of light for passing along knowledge that would otherwise be lost to time or convoluted by the oral tradition. In order to provide new and old adventurers with as much knowledge of what to expect on their journey in Sanctuary, we created this tome of knowledge – Ars Arcanum. We will regularly feature a Legendary weapon or armor piece, discussing its stand-alone powers and capabilities, as well as how it may synergize with new builds or other items. With the Patch 2.1.2 Test Realm rolling Season One into Season Two, anyone that hopped in has had the chance to test some of the new seasonal items that were previewed at BlizzCon. I wanted to use this week’s Ars Arcanum to discuss the Crusader-specific Belt of the Trove. This is the only new item the class is exclusively receiving in the next patch as far as we ...

We have a variety of new and exciting skins in development, as well as a festive new mount!

Episode 28 Part 2 – Blizzcon Recap Sorry for the wonky audio edit in the middle there. We’ve still got more Blizzcon info to talk about and a very special announcement at the end of the show!...

Episode 28 Part 1 – Blizzcon Recap We’ve been gone for far too long, but we’re back and we’ve got a lot to talk about. A lot.

The Edge: The Post BlizzCon Depression

by matticus on

Episode 39: The Post BlizzCon Depression! We’re back from BlizzCon! Two days of fun action and games while hanging out with some of our favourite personalities from around the community. The big news coming out of BlizzCon is Blizzard’s new game, Overwatch. Along with that, we received new information and updates for Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, and Starcraft 2. Nothing new this year from Diablo 3 or World of Warcraft. The hype is real! And it is here! Unfortunately, no KT this week for us on the show as she had other obligations to attend to. Overwatch Overwatch: Matt’s First Impressions Will and Sean both are excited! Sean managed to get in six games over two days. Looks like his hero of choice is Tracer! Hearthstone The Goblins vs Gnomes expansion is here and it is way closer to release than expected! Blizzard is aiming for a December release ...

 

I want to focus first on the cinematic experience for Overwatch, since it literally brought me to tears when I was watching it this morning on the show floor. Rumor has it that Blizzard’s Cinematics guys have been rubbing elbows with Pixar lately, and if that’s true it really demonstrates what Nick Carpenter and his team can do when they glom onto a style and run with it. The anime-influenced style is definitely something that you wouldn’t normally associate with Blizzard, but this cinematic changes all of that. From the 2D elements in the first part of the video to the six different characters in play throughout the fight itself, this is a brighter, crisper and more fluid kind of animation than we’ve ever seen out of them before, and it looks amazing. Moreover, as a cinematic that gives you a very strong impression of what the game itself looks ...

BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders can rest easy if they haven't gotten the chance to purchase any Blizzard swag yet. New goodies are now on sale on the Blizzard Gear Store through November 11....

 

Legacy of Void Details Emerge

by Neinball on

The long awaited conclusion to the Starcraft II trilogy is finally here. Today we’ve finally gotten our first look at the Legacy of the Void. The campaign will focus around Artanis and his quest to take back the protoss homeworld of Auir and to stop the looming threat of the Xel’naga. In single player story you’ll command the Spear of Auir, a massive warship, that will allow you to use a super weapon during missions that has the ability to wipe out entire armies. Multiplayer In addition to the single player content, there will be new additions to the multiplayer and eSports side of the game. It seems you’ll be able to play LoftV without Wings of Liberty or Heart of Swarm, but we don’t have details yet on how that will work in terms of multiplayer modes or story modes. We have three new play modes being added in: ...
