The event happens o...[Read More]

Interview with HazelNuttyGames at Blizzcon 2019!

During Blizzcon I got to not only meet but also interview my favorite World of Warcraft content creator, HazelNuttyGames!

Over the course of 7 years, I’ve interviewed award-winning actors, musicians, c...[Read More]

He became mad and began wreaking havoc on the land through devious plans before unleashing awesome fury on the weak. T...[Read More]

What Blizzard Is Doing Is Borderline Un-American

In your house right now, there is an object close to you that has three simple words on it. Usually, it’s on the back or bottom of the thing, hidden in a place most of us don’t bother to look. The phrase says a lot about what it means to be an American, which is ironic since the phrase is “Made in China.”  China is where we get most of our things. We think only about how affordable it is and rarel...[Read More]

My Blizzcon 2018 Costume Contest Experience by Miss Ravencrest Cosplay

Due to the nature of going public with my experience, I have omitted one section to protect the friend mentioned in that section. [Editor’s note: This was originally submitted directly to a Blizzard community liaison, but Miss Ravencrest agreed to share this publicly. It has been edited to reflect this.] It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to consider putting it down in words and send...[Read More]

Getting into Overwatch League!

If you are like me, your time is split between work, a relationship, family, and then there is just a tiny pool of time left we can allocate to our hobbies. Unfortunately, we can not do everything we want and as a result we can miss out on a lot of great content. For me, that was The Overwatch League. In 2018, I completely missed the boat and was out of the loop, so for 2019 I swore that I would n...[Read More]

Why Do I Keep Coming Back to World of Warcraft?

“This is it,” I say to myself as I head to World of Warcraft’s website to unsubscribe. “This is the final time I’ll ever play WoW.
