WoW: Legion Launches App, Teases 7.1 Content Update

World of Warcraft: Legion [official site] launched last week and oh! here comes the expansion's little pal, chasing behind wagging its cybertail. Blizzard last night launched Legion's companion app for pocket telephones, which mostly lets you fiddle with the 'Order Hall' class clubhouse stuff. Like AbyssRium but with burly soldiers instead of coral and jellyfish, I imagine? Blizzard have also shown off a little of…

Battlefield 1 Beta Brought Down By DDoS Attack

The beta of Battlefield 1 [official site] was shut down on its first day by a group pummeling EA’s servers with a denial of service attack. And if you hopped off to play some Overwatch or WoW instead, you might have encountered an identical problem, because the same group has been attacking Blizzard’s servers as well. It is as if a dozen gaming forums losing…

Hell’s Bells! World Of Warcraft: Legion Launches

Demons? Again? Already? I swear, it's not even a decade since neon green last swept The World of World of Warcraft. Fashion moves at such a pace there! No wonder everyone's always grinding for new pauldrons: they're trying to keep up in a world of violent fashionistas. Anyway, point is: World of Warcraft: Legion [official site], the sixth expansion to Blizzard's fantasy MMORPG, is now…

Feature: Defending your home away from home

The RPG Scrollbars: Invasion – Azeroth (And Others)

As many hours as I've spent playing them over the years, MMORPGs always fill me with a touch of sadness for what they could have been. I'm thinking of the original optimistic dreams of people like Richard Garriott, talking of his world where players accidentally killing too many sheep would draw the wrath of a nearby, now hungry dragon, back in that innocent time before…

World Of Warcraft: Legion Pre-Expansion Patch Now Live

World of Warcraft: Legion [official site] won't launch until August 30th but the demonic hordes are already making their move upon Azeroth. The traditional WoW pre-expansion patch is now live, implementing a fair chunk of the expansion's big changes. Lots of classes are reworked, draw distances are increased, the transmogrification system is massively improved so you don't need to stash loads of old items, equalised…

World Of Warcraft: Legion Will Start To Leak In August

The World Of Warcraft [official site] blog is talking about the upcoming Legion pre-patch. As a non-player the update info tends not to grab me particularly (unless it's about Illidan and looks like a pro wrestling intro) but I do like the talk of the pre-expension patch where the new content starts to seep into the world and set the scene for the expansion. It's…

Feature: Nonsense from a parallel dimension

The RPG Scrollbars: Azeroth’s Ragequit Referendum

Dateline: Year 634 by the King's Calendar. Azeroth's political woes go from bad to worse as the continent of Kalimdor continues its push for official separation from the Eastern Kingdoms. "Our citizens grow weary of being mixed in with some grand political empire that increasingly does nothing for them," complains Troll leader Hyjal Farage. "With this vote, we will prove our independence once and for…

World Of Warcraft Dev Address Pacing Problems

If you're still holding your breath for Blizzard to make a firm ruling on official servers running older (legacy) versions of World of Warcraft [official site], jeez, you must be tired. A month of holding until you pass out, over and over? Rough. Well, a Blizzard livestream today deftly stepped around that, but one dev get nicely into one of the problems fuelling interest in…

World Of Warcraft: Legion Hunting Demons From August

If you're one of the lapsed World of Warcraft players who pops back to check out each new expansion, here, draw a wavering circle around August 30th on your calendar as that's when World of Warcraft: Legion [official site] will launch, Blizzard have announced. If you're a steady player, still hanging in there, hey, draw a confident circle. If you're neither of these and don't…

Blizzard Update Warcraft III For Your Modern OS

After blowing off the dust from Diablo 2 to make it work more smoothly on modern systems, Blizzard have moved on and polished another one of their classics, 2002's Warcraft 3 [official site]. The patch was released last Tuesday, and the notes promise future updates to the gameplay alongside additional fixes.

Feature: Will the prophecies come true?

The RPG Scrollbars: The RPGs Of 2016

The holidays are now over, and it's time to get back to what matters - saving a million accident-prone fantasy realms from their own past mistakes, evil gods on the rampage, and all that pesky loot that they clearly don't have anything better to do with than stick it in barrels at the bottom of dungeons. This is why so many of them have no…

Feature: Hands on with the next expansion.

World of Warcraft: Legion: A Demon Hunter’s Tale

Demon Hunters do not mess around. Demon Hunters do not play fair. They're one of the biggest new features in World of Warcraft: Legion [official site], and even in alpha, they're a force to be reckoned with. They're not finished, but they are Prepared. I've been taking one for a spin, and here's how they're going to kick all of the arse.

World Of Warcraft: Legion Gets Shiny Launch Trailer

After being announced in August, Legion - the upcoming World Of Warcraft [official site] expansion - has received a launch trailer ahead of its summer release next year. It's pretty and shiny and so CGI-infused that it could give the series' real-life movie cinematic that dropped on Friday a run for its money. Check it out in all its four and a bit minutes-long glory…

Seems Blizzard Are Revamping Diablo 2, StarCraft, WC3

[Update: Oh! Blizzard told GameSpot it's simply to maintain them. Dreams are always so short-lived. Hey, maybe do consider revamping them though! That would be lovely. Official support for modern resolutions in Diablo II would be a grand start.] Once a games studio has been around for long enough, different generations of players will each have their own idea of the devs' finest days. Perhaps…

Feature: FOR DOOMHAMMER!

The RPG Scrollbars: A Weapon Of Legend

This week, Blizzard announced the latest World of Warcraft expansion - World Of Warcraft: Legion [official site]. It looks pretty good. Almost as good as my prediction. Almost. I'm not going to rehash the full details here, but I'm up for it. It's a big step forward for Warcraft's arc story, featuring the return of its Big Bad, the Burning Legion, and some long awaited…

Warcraft III In Starcraft II Because Why Not?

Still no news on an official new Warcraft game - and I'd be fairly surprised if that changed before the end of this decade, to be honest - but news of Warcraft III remade in Starcraft II feels like a long time coming. It's partly down to Blizzard's recent release of the Warcraft III assets to the community, but mostly down to pure gumption on…

Craftwar: StarCraft 2 Editor Adding Warcraft III Assets

Warcraft III's mod scene is grossly underrated, I've muttered into many a pint glass. Yes, yes, we know it was where MOBAs and tower defense games really took off, but so many more inventive and interesting and weird games bounced around, types of game I haven't seen since. I always thought this was helped a lot by WC3 having a huge range of units and…
