Rumors And ScuttlebuttEdit
Blizzard To Wipe Away Your SinsEdit
Blizzard announced this week that they will be wiping away all of your honor, all of your marks, and everything that you might use to purchase PvP rewards in the expansion.
We Get To Say The Name Bobby Kotick AgainEdit
The excellently-named CEO of Activision submitted to an interview with the Wall Street Journal for an article called “The Future Of Video Games”. You need a subscription to enjoy the full story, but in summary, Kotick didn’t talk so much about the future as he did the past – why Activision bought Blizzard away from Vivendi, what it means to run an MMO, with all of the considerations of the business, and how different this business is in Asia.

Drop Of The WeekEdit
Bejeweled In WoWEdit
This hit the scene while we were recording our last episode live seven days ago, and the discussion hasn’t ceased all week.

We have to ask – is this a good thing?
