BlizzCon 2014 began today at 11 am PST/2pm EST. If you aren't there live, you can still catch the tournaments at the official BlizzCon website, even if you don't have a virtual ticket.
Full virtual access to this year's edition of BlizzCon—including the panels, interviews, and closing ceremony—will cost you $40, and you can tune in at BlizzCon.com. Naturally, we'll be covering all the big news and announcements here as well, along with hands-on impressions of the games at the show. Here's what we have so far:
Andy has been gaming on PCs from the very beginning, starting as a youngster with text adventures and primitive action games on a cassette-based TRS80. From there he graduated to the glory days of Sierra Online adventures and Microprose sims, ran a local BBS, learned how to build PCs, and developed a longstanding love of RPGs, immersive sims, and shooters. He began writing videogame news in 2007 for The Escapist and somehow managed to avoid getting fired until 2014, when he joined the storied ranks of PC Gamer. He covers all aspects of the industry, from new game announcements and patch notes to legal disputes, Twitch beefs, esports, and Henry Cavill. Lots of Henry Cavill.
