Seemingly straight out of Orgrimmar, actress Jamie Lee Curtis arrived in Orc cosplay to last night’s premiere of Duncan Jones‘ fantasy flick Warcraft! Curtis schmoozed with cast members and fans of the film alike, posing for pictures and recording videos- including a pretty impressive nod to “Leroooooy Jenkins!” Her look came off a little more Malificent than Orc, maybe a brow piece or some big bottom teeth pieces would’ve been a bit more accurate. But this fangirl is no stranger to cosplay fun! (more…)

New ‘Warcraft’ TV Spot Promises More PvP Action

Warcraft-Title-550x297

Honestly, it’s strange that Blizzard didn’t try this sooner. World Of Warcraft is the leading MMORPG of our times, sporting a fanbase of millions of nerds who have devoted impossibly long hours into the game and would probably buy every last bit of merchandise that the almighty vidyagame titan would squeeze out of it. In what seems to be a nice little gameplay reference, the lastest TV spot for the upcoming film seems to be focusing on the PvE side of things…

The first full trailer for Legendary Pictures and director Duncan JonesWarcraft based on the Blizzard MMO World of Warcraft has hit the Internet as promised and it looks pretty damn good. Video game movies have a poor track record at the box office. Very few seem to break past the break even point and make any real Hollywood blockbuster type money. Will Warcraft break that tradition?

While we wait for the full Warcraft trailer to arrive on Friday, Legendary Pictures has released a teaser to the full trailer. I have to say I was a little worried this movie would come off as cheesy as the Dungeons and Dragons movies, but this teaser has sparked a flame of hope that it might not be so. (more…)

‘World of Warcraft’ SDCC15 Footage Leaked

Just like every other panel at SDCC15, the footage from the World of Warcraft Panel has been bootlegged on a cell phone and posted online. The only difference here is that it took so long for the material to be posted. Whoever took it must have had to take a couple of days to recover from the weekend. It’s an over the shoulders shot and background noise laden look at World of Warcraft. This is not the trailer, it was shown after this footage that was brought by director Ducan Jones. (more…)

WoW

Anyone who’s ever played an RPG of any kind knows that a significant portion of the game’s mechanics rely on leveling up your character to prepare them for the challenges ahead. It becomes especially repetitive when you’ve been playing whatever game for long periods of time, so one can easily imagine that the WoW faithful of the gaming world would be a little bored of the typical grind, even after all of the changes introduced in the game’s expansions. Still, Blizzard expects gamers to play fairly and go through the slog like everyone else and they don’t take kindly to cheating, as demonstrated by the banning. (more…)

Is there ever going to be a good movie adaptation based on a great video game? Well, with the next couple of years looking set to provide us with a bountiful mix of ‘video-game-come-movie-adaptations’ – with releases such as: Ratchet and Clank, Hitman: Agent 47, Angry Birds, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and Splinter Cell – the odds are stacked in our favor that a good movie will come from one of these titles, so yeah! You still not convinced? Well, there is one game that has been laying low amongst the deluge of titles scheduled for release within the next two years, a game that came bursting onto the scene in 2014 at San Diego Comic-Con. This one seems certain to lift the video game curse. The game we are referring to; is, Blizzard Entertainment’s massive multi-platform game World of Warcraft, and this looks to have the biggest potential to live up to expectations of the fans.  (more…)

I’ve never played the online role playing game World of Warcraft, but some people are downright obsessed with the it. One such person was the late, great Robin Williams, who once joked that he was darn near addicted to the game. Williams was a big gamer, even naming his daughter Zelda in honor of the long-running RPG series of the same name, and when Williams died quite suddenly last month, the push was on to pay tribute to the man in some form in the WoW universe. Mission: accomplished. Like a genie in a bottle, the Williams tribute in World of Warcraft has now been revealed. (more…)

While the world continues to come to grips with the loss of Robin Williams, celebrity/fan tributes and remembrances are popping up everywhere on the Internet. There are also quite a few real world tributes appearing at Robin Williams sites like the Mork & Mindy house, the Good Will Hunting bench, and William’s Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Williams was an avid gamer and the gaming community, specifically the World of Warcraft community, has started a petition to create a Robin Williams NPC tribute character in the world of WoW. (more…)
