Why you should go to BlizzCon, according to BlizzCon

BlizzCon fans

This weekend Evan and I popped our BlizzCon cherries, (steady now), and we couldn't have picked a much better year to do it at. This year's show featured major announcements for StarCraft II and Hearthstone, plus the excitement of an entirely new game in the shape of Overwatch, a riotous competitive FPS. Whilst I was 'busy' watching Firebat win $100,000 on the Hearthstone stage, Evan was off patrolling the show floor trying to find out what makes BlizzCon different to other gaming events. One lucky chap also snags himself some pretty sweet loot…

With over two decades covering videogames, Tim has been there from the beginning. In his case, that meant playing Elite in 'co-op' on a BBC Micro (one player uses the movement keys, the other shoots) until his parents finally caved and bought an Amstrad CPC 6128. These days, when not steering the good ship PC Gamer, Tim spends his time complaining that all Priest mains in Hearthstone are degenerates and raiding in Destiny 2. He's almost certainly doing one of these right now.
