World Of Warcraft’s Vulpine could be another Allied Race

The early introduction of World Of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth’s Allied Races is a big part of the reason I am once again traipsing through Azeroth and beyond. They're new races, like the spooky Void Elves, who you can play as once you make friends with them and complete a series of quests. Any excuse to add an alt to my disgusting collection. But more…

World of Warcraft going vanilla with Classic servers

World of Warcraft is getting a new expansion, Blizzard announced today, but also an anti-expansion.

Protecting video game dogs and the silly lengths I go to

I don’t know how I finished Far Cry 3. Luck and perseverance, I suppose. It’s hard to play when you’d happily take a bullet for a dog, though. The island paradise is full of them, and for some reason they are extremely aggressive. But I refused to harm a hair on their precious little heads.

There’s a lot going on at Blizzcon 2016 – new Diablo classes, Hearthstone cards and long-rumoured Overwatch characters for a start.

WoW Players Can Return To Karazhan On 25 October

Return to Karazhan kind of implies I've been to Karazhan even once. It's like when you meet someone new at a party and they say "So good to see you again!" and you have to decide whether to tell them you've never met or just go with it, trying to work out who they think you are and generally besmirching that other person's reputation. Oh…
