So here we are at week two of Hearthstone‘s Naxxramas release. This week we have the Plague Wing, and Hearthhead once again had guides out in record time. Those who wanted to use Alexstraza for easy wins will be saddened to that her power’s been disabled for these battles, but I’m fine with that. I always liked the “dance” mechanic for Mr. Unclean, so I’ve actually been looking forward to that match since his hero power was first revealed. However, after last week, there was one thing I wasn’t looking forward to: destroying one of my decks again.

For those of you who don’t know Mark McKenna, he’s a Inkwell Awards Hall of Famer and a veteran in the comic book industry with over 29 years of experience. Mark has worked with both Marvel and DC Comics on some of the largest names including X-Men, Spider-Man, Batman, and The Justice League. His name is forever showcased on the credits of over 500 comics with over 8,000 pages inked by his hands.

Over the past year I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Mark twice– once at a local comic-con and again at my hometown comic book store on Free Comic Book Day. I was impressed with his work so much that I have 6 of his prints hanging in my downstairs bathroom (is that weird?) and have picked up comics from his other project called Combat Jacks.

Mark recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund the printing of the latest installment of the Banana Tail comic, the BOOnana Tail Halloween Special. So far there have been 3 Banana Tail books printed and this would be the first comic. It’s planned to be a 32-page comic book that will be catered to readers of all ages. He’s set a goal of only $3,000 for the campaign with the majority of the proceeds going to the printing of the comic. Mark is no noob when it comes to the crowdfunding arena. He’s successfully raised funds for 5 other projects.

Update: The BOOnana Tail Halloween Special Kickstarter campaign has been full funded!

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming (and final) installment was released at 2:00pm central time on Monday afternoon–and yes, I did wait for the clock to tick down. It was well worth the wait, too. The trailer does a great job of setting the stage for the next movie, mixing action and drama well. It also shows those who haven’t read the book that, yes, there is more to this movie than Smaug burning things. We do, though, still get to see some delightful dragonfire action. Another great part of the trailer is the use of the song sung by Pippin (Billy Boyd) in The Return of the King–even though the song was much more dramatic and successful in the film. Overall, the trailer works really well. Watch it below:

If you haven’t had a chance to try out WildStar and would like to, Carbine’s teamed up with a whole bunch of partner sites this week to give away free trial codes. The free trial grants 7 days of free access from the time you enter the code. There are some limitations with the trial accounts, but it’s a great way to test the waters of Nexus and figure out what all the cupcake-loving fuss is about.

To get started, you’ll need to head on over to any of the partner sites Carbine’s teamed up with. The code can be redeemed here. You’ll also need an NCSoft account to redeem the code and download the game, of course.

For more info on all things WildStar, check out the official site. You can also read my recent editorial about risk-taking in MMORPG development and why WildStar made some great moves here. Don’t take my word for it, though. Try out the game yourself!

Transparent seems to be the trend of gaming developers mid 2014 and it is exciting to see.

Trion Worlds is no exception to this rule as they bring us the next closed beta testing  announcement for next week including the “meat and bones” of any game testing with back-end and server load information.

During the first beta event weekend, it took players 18 minutes to fill servers and it was a load of fun enjoying watching everyone pile on the Eastern Continent Harani. In anticipation of the next event, here are some thoughts from the last beta event, alpha, and the current development stage of the game:

Darius, Ahri, Graves, Leona, Nautilus, Rengar, Katarina, Jax, and a few other LoL champions go head to head like never seen before in Riot’s latest cinematic called “A New Dawn” which was released yesterday. Much in the vein of “A Twist of Fate”, “A New Dawn” showcases some awesome champ abilities and even an ultimate or two in 1 vs. 1 fights. With an added twist, the champions get involved in a bit of team fight action this time. Here’s a spoiler: Nautilus, Leona, and Graves are kind of awesome.

Riot also released a behind-the-scenes video that goes into the magic behind the making of “A New Dawn”. This video can be viewed here.

League of Legends movie, anyone? Come on, Riot. You know you want to.

Despite still being in its first year of launch, Elder Scrolls Online has already seen its share of rough times. How large that share actually is will depend on who you ask, of course. According to recent information from Superdata, ESO has over 770,000 subscribers as of June which is a fairly impressive number given some of the comments seen in MMORPG communities about the game’s comparative success, but there’s also the fact that console/PC gamers– and not just MMO fans– love Elder Scrolls.

The rough times in question primarily have to do with ESO‘s endgame content. Veteran content as it’s called is currently wrapped in veteran ranks that are obtained by either grinding out content that was unexplored by leveling your particular faction to level 50 or by tagging alongside a few friends in Craglorn.

The road leading up to Series 8 of the BBC’s Doctor Who has been a little rocky. First, some raw footage was leaked by a U.S. office. Then five scripts from the new season also made their way online.

Despite this, none of the excitement was tempered when the BBC aired the official Series 8 trailer this past Monday. It provides fans with their first real glimpse at the new Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi. It’s a great teaser for the season that lies ahead–and announces August 23rd air date.
