(no permalink or webpage set up for this yet — surprise!) From the World of Warcraft mainpage, news of the first BlizzCon to be held October 28 and 29, 2005 in the OC, California. Most places don’t announce events until they have the location pinned down a little further than the county, but possibly they want to make sure you keep your calendar open for those days.
Anyways, assuming you keep that calendar open, it’s a celebration of all things Blizzard: Warcraft, StarCraft, Diablo, and includes Q & A panels. Wee.
WHAT: BlizzCon will be an ideal event for gamers from around the world to meet each other, participate in live Q&A’s with Blizzard developers, and share their passion for their favorite Blizzard games.
WHO: Gamers who enjoy playing any of the games developed by Blizzard Entertainment.
WHERE: Orange County, California. Exact location to be announced at a later date.
WHEN: Friday and Saturday, October 28 and 29, 2005. The event begins at 8 a.m. PDT on both days.
Further details, including ticket prices, will follow on the Blizzard main page.
Slashdot | Wil Wheaton Strikes Back — I know it’s not just me. Wil Wheaton bugged the shit out of me when he was prancing around in ST: Next Gen, he bugged the shit out of me with his diatribe about voice actors in gaming, and he will bug the shit out of me until the day I die. But if anyone is a Wil Wheaton fan (
seek help), enjoy.
