BlizzCon 2009 in pictures

See Ozzy Osbourne cream his fans, the incredible StarCraft gyroscope, amazing costumes, and more!

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!

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!
