The word of the day was 'transmogrification'. It's the technique that allowed World of Warcraft high earner The Mogfather to transform the auction house into a fashion boutique , and it's also the process by which Blizzard are hoping to turn Blizzcon 2012 into two games and an expansion pack. Meanwhile, The Darkness 2 demo offers you a taste of what it might be like to transmogrify into a gangster who transmogrifies into a tentacled primaeval monstrosity that transmogrifies people into terrified bits of meat.
Elsewhere in the world of PC gaming, Zynga continued to transform other people's ideas into suspiciously similar-looking games, and the Raspberry Pi mini-computer set out to turn the kids of today into the programmers and computer scientists of tomorrow. All this and more after the jump.
If you could transmogrify anything into anything else, what would you transmogrify? I would probably turn myself into a thesaurus.
