Maybe Facebook was paying attention when Elon Musk tweeted that he loves Overwatch. Just a day later, the site said it’s working on a game-streaming feature that would let us watch from the News Feed as Musk battle those particular robots. COINCIDENCE? Well, definitely, but that doesn’t mean this isn’t Facebook’s…
Elon Musk may think we’re all living in a video game, but the man still has suggestions for which video game we should play while we’re all stuck in this simulation. And of course the game involves fighting sentient AI.
Overwatch is to big-budget release bonanzas what eclipses are to the rest of the sky. It’s a multi-million dollar production fueled by laser-targeted marketing. Even Game of Thrones had to glom onto its underbelly to avoid being unceremoniously forgotten. Anyway one of its most crucial sounds was made by a beer can.
The worst part about a blizzard is the days after when the pristine white gives way to a dirty brownish gray. Where streets that once looked impossibly untouched transform into trampled reminders of our dirty footprint on this here world. I wish you could get that picturesque day of a blizzard and then immediately…
Winter Storm Jonas hit the east coast over the weekend and if you spent any time on Instagram or Facebook or any social network where people who live on the east coast are required to post a minimum of three pictures each, you’d know that there was a ridiculous amount of snow that got dropped onto cities. Here’s time…
Snowed in this weekend? You’re weren’t alone—as you’ve no doubt heard, the East Coast just got walloped by a record-breaking winter storm. But sometimes, words simply can’t do justice to the magnitude of a meteorological event. You need images taken from 250 miles up.
Nothing screams “America” like hopping on your skis or snowboard to shred through the streets of New York City while holding the Stars and Stripes. With a Jeep Wrangler as your chaperone. In the middle of a snowstorm.
The great storm is finally here. What can we expect? The latest forecast is out—and it’s both weird and grim. Read it tucked safely indoors, with candles, canned goods, and the last of your frail hopes gathered tightly around you.
A huge storm is headed for the East coast—and it may end up being one of the heaviest we’ve seen in years. But it’s more than just the snowfall you have to watch out for; the storm is bringing absurdly powerful wind gusts and even flooding along with it.
Unlike the other gaming platforms we’ve been evaluating here at the end of the year, the PC’s been around for decades. Recently, the PC’s long legacy of openness and customization has come into conflict with a mainstream that’s finally—finally—realized just how big of a deal PC gaming actually is.
World of Warcraft and the official Shrek origin story (aka the Warcraft movie) are separate. Mostly. However, the movie has gotten Blizzard thinking about older Warcraft games—and how they could bring them back.
When a hurricane takes aim at the coast or a blizzard looms in the forecast, something strange comes over us. We swarm into grocery stores, stripping the shelves bare of canned goods and staple foods. Lines stretch all the way around the supermarket, and it’s like Black Friday on the produce aisle, with people arguing…
Did you know that Blizzard is playing around with totally removing the major macro mechanics from StarCraft II? And that future multiplayer matches might no longer feature Chrono Boost, MULEs, or manual Larva Spawn?
The Burning Legion is back in the next expansion for World of Warcraft, which will raise the level cap to 110 and add a new hero class, Demon Hunter, to the longrunning MMORPG. It’s called World of Warcraft: Legion, and it’s packed full of Warcraft lore from obvious to archaic.
This past Thursday, a blizzard warning was in effect on the Big Island of Hawaii. Yes, even on Hawaii, it snows.
Want something fun and productive to do during this whole giant blizzard thing? Why not learn how to build a snow shelter? It could save your life one day but, more importantly, they're just a ton of fun to make. Here's how.
The above photo, taken from a plane above Buffalo yesterday by photographer Jeff Suhr, shows the brutal lake effect snow storm in effect over Western New York right now. Some areas are expecting up to six feet of snow by the end of the week. These snowstorms are among the most intense in the world, and the processes…
Blizzard announced their new game today. Its name is Overwatch and, looking at the short film—they call it trailer, but it is a short—they could produce a movie out of this. Make Brad Bird direct it and grab a few billion dollars on top of all the gazillion dollars that they are going to be making from the game.
