Here are some screenshots I came across of the new Warlords of Draenor expansion pack for World of Warcraft. In WoD you’ll see everything from brand new character models for some of the graphically outdated races like Orcs and Dwarves as well as some seriously good looking skyboxes and new zones (as you will see in the screenshots.

Hearthstone, the new trading card game from Blizzard has come out of beta and has officially been launched. If you’ve never played a trading card game or feel like you won’t know what to do or how to play one, head to PlayHearthStone.com and grab this one. It’s really easy to get into but there’s an abyss of depth to the game if you want to hone your skills and min/max your decks and abilities.
You start off playing some major names and characters from the Warcraft and World of Warcraft realm like Hogger and Illidan Stormrage. After you’ve gone through the introductory quests/missions you’ll be able to challenge friends and random players alike.
If it’s from Blizzard you know at it’s worst it can only be mediocre. If you’ve played it before let us know how you liked it and if you have any tips for us beginners!
About two weeks ago a channel popped up on Twitch called Twitch Plays Pokemon that streamed gameplay of Pokemon Red/Blue. It was different because instead of just having a chat channel for discussing a livestream – the viewers actually controlled the gameplay. They chose what buttons were pressed and what decisions were made. It was pretty popular at first and then seemingly overnight became this massive internet deal and had at one point 100,000 concurrent viewers. That means that 100,000 people were simultaneously trying to control a video game which made it very hectic. And with nearly 200,000 followers there have since been forums, subreddits, memes, and every other internet-thing you can think of made for this twitch channel.
It took a little over 16 days but the game was finally completed. It looks like in about 21 hours there’s going to be another round so if you’re interested in playing or just want to see how it works, head over to Twitch.tv/TwitchPlaysPokemon.
