BlizzCon 2009 in pictures

Maybe you had a date Friday night; maybe you broke both your legs in a freak accident; maybe you hate World of Warcraft. Whatever your excuse for missing BlizzCon this last weekend, you made the wrong choice. Luckily for you, we made the right choice last week, and brought you the latest updates about World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Diablo III, StarCraft II, and plans for updates to Battle.net in our BlizzCon 2009 Round-up.

Today, we bring you glorious pictures from Blizzard’s two-day gaming bash. It’s like you were actually there getting a face full of foam from the Prince of Darkness himself!


Amazing sights from BlizzCon 2009


Above: BlizzCon, the place where gamers learn about the big three: WoW, SC II, and Diablo III


Above: An extremely detailed miniature of a deluxe War Mammoth, complete with sidecar. We touched it


Above: An advanced look at the new leveling progression by zone. Learn it


Above: Lok’tar ogar bitches


Above: The StarCraft II station before the show began


Above: As expected, the station was packed


Above: Advertisements for gold farming services were frowned upon at the graffiti wall


Above: The StarCraft gyroscope made you feel like a real Terran


Above: If bright flower prints and colors could kill…


Above: An epic mural of the Goblins, one of the two new races in the next WoW expansion


Above: The Worgen were represented as well, and will be sure to please Alliance noobs and furry fans


People playing WoW while at BlizzCon


We love ourselves some WoW. But the last thing we expected to see were the crowds of players taking a timeout during BlizzCon to play WoW on their personal accounts. C’mon people! You can do that anytime at home!

    Lighten up on the Cosplayers. They are having fun and doing their own thing. Well done on those costumes guys and girls. Recaptcha: Times leveled If I only had a nickel for all the times I have leveled...

    I feel bad when people makes fun of nerds but then again, are they really serious?? do they really think they look cool with all that crap?? My Recaptcha is "Atlantic Springer" not bad, not bad at all.

    Question: Do cosplayers realize what nerds they are and dress in jest or are they actually serious?
  • Spacegrass - August 25, 2009 1:54 a.m.

    That cosplay was hilarious. How is that hunter going to fire a bow that's literally twice as big as she is? Also may ReCAPTCHA is "tomato Hernandez"; that would be a great name for a Warcraft character.

    Looks like a badass show, lot of cool stuff to see.
