Like it or not, it’s pretty much the law that you have to buy gifts for everyone at this time of year. Thankfully, Blizzard has your back, because now you can deliver a $60 gift for less than 30 bucks.  For a limited time, StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is available for a mere $29.99 -- that’s 50% off the suggested retail price. 

Click here for details, but don’t delay; this offer ends Monday November 28th.

Enjoy.

WoW turning 7 years old, seventh anniversary!

WoW Achievement

WoW Achievement for Logging In

Great news everyone, Blizzard is being extra kind this year. As we all know, World of Warcraft is turning 7 this year. They just updated the forums with a new blue post.

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.

We look forward to another year of adventures ahead and many more to come!

*Please observe all goblin and gnome fire hazard warnings and celebrate responsibly.

7% XP Bonus? I like. Will definitely be using this to finish the last 3 levels of my mage.
