Hasbro and Blizzard Entertainment have partnered up to release a fresh take on two classic board games. Monopoly: World of Warcraft and Risk: StarCraft, both are built with previous foundations with new designs and gameplay elements inspired by Blizzards populat gaming universes. This is just another way to expand two already popular universes into the offline world.
For years, World of Warcraft players have told rumors and facts about Chuck Norris. World of Warcraft players have even gone as far as creating characters that look like Chuck Norris. Back in the early days of World of Warcraft, a GM was asked the epic question ""What happens if the unstoppable force would hit the immovable object?" The answer? "Chuck Norris dies." Chuck Norris has finally appeared in a World of Warcraft commercial and it couldn't be more epic. Maybe Chuck wil make more appearances in World of Warcraft in the future. Check out the commercial inside:
"To celebrate, players who log into the game between November 20 and December 3 will earn a feat of strength added to their Achievements and a 'Celebration Package' item. Using your item will get the celebrations rolling by shooting off fireworks*, applying a (visual only) tabard to your character, and granting a 7% bonus to experience and reputation gains while active."
Most of us who have played World of Warcraft have spend countless hours rummaging through the world of Azeroth, and while the years of WoW were memorable, they still continue on. So in order to prepare for WoW's future, Blizzard has decided to upgrade its servers. While the servers are being upgraded, the old servers will be no longer useful, so Blizzard has decided to auction off each server in an intense four week auction event over eBay with all the earnings being donated to the St. Jude's Children Hospital.
Thanks to the wonderful people at Blizzard I was given access to the Diablo 3 beta, and while only being able to play through the first act, I can definitively say I will be purchasing this game when it is released. It is hard to give a review of a beta, simply because it is not the full game, and there isn't much I can go on except for whatever Blizzard allows me to indulge in, but I managed to get at least a few good hours of play time, so that must count for something.
