Beyond Co-Op - December 29th through January 4th, 2014

Welcome to 2014 and the latest edition of Beyond Co-Op, our week's end news piece that accumulates a few of the more interesting non co-op stories from the past several days. With the end of 2013, there were a lot of "best of" lists and "what to expect for gaming in 2014" going around. Once you get past those, however, there were a couple pieces of note, like a piece of malware stealing WoW players' account information and a new Ace Attorney game in the works.

The News that Matters From Blizzcon 2011: A Console Gamer in a PC Land

Full disclosure: I am not a Blizzard fanboy.  There, I said it.  Wait, don't freak out!  I'm not a Blizzard hater, either.  I've played through Diablo and some of the sequel.  I dabbled in WarCraft before there was a "World of."  I Zerg rushed with the worst of them in StarCraft.  I did all of that and more - a decade ago.  I have never owned a gaming PC, ever.  I mooched accessed Blizzard titles through a steady stream of college friends and roommates back in the late 90's and early 00's.  Once I moved on I never looked back.  Somehow, I found myself at Blizzcon 2011 last Friday.  There were sights, there were sounds, there were many announcements, and not so much as a whisper of StarCraft: Ghost.

Blizzcon 2011 in Pictures

Hey there!  Blizzcon 2011 is in full swing, and Co-Optimus was awesome enough to let me cover it.  Now, I'm not what you would call a "Blizzard Expert," or even a "PC gamer," but I can take a damn fine grainy photo or two!  Feast your eyes on some of the sights of Blizzcon 2011!  Blizzard out did themselves this year, with several gigantic bad-ass character statues.  I also took a trip through their art gallery, as well as captured some of the tournaments, panels, and presentations in action.  We'll have more news from Blizzcon for you soon!

World of Warcraft Cataclysm MMO Gaming Mouse Review

If you had told me one year ago that I’d be playing World of Warcraft on the PC, and that I’d actually enjoy it so much that I considered buying hardware specific for it, I’d have called you insane. Yet here I am with a giant glowing World of Warcraft gaming mouse in my hand.

Blizzard Entertainment's 20th Anniversary Video Retrospective

Blizzard has just released a new video retrospective that looks at the 20 year history of the company.  The beefy video that weighs in at almost an hour long shows the company history from Silicon & Synapse after founders Mike Morhaime, Frank Pearce and Allen Adham met at UCLA up until modern day.  Its incredibly facinating to see the work that went into early Blizzard titles like Lost Vikings and Rock & Roll Racing - a small team in a 600 square foot office coding, creating and goofing off.  Honestly the video is way more entertaining than it should be.

World of Starcraft? As a Starcraft 2 Mod? Yes, Please!

What happens when you put together two things that are awesome?  Apparently, you get awesome squared; need proof?  Just check out Starcraft 2 mod called World of Starcraft.  It combines two things we love (namely, World of Warcraft and Starcraft 2) into something that can only be described as "full of win".  Though the mod is only in a pre-alpha state at the moment, it looks quite highly polished already.  So far, the focus is on Terran infantry units as player characters, but can Zerglings or Zealots be too far behind?  The real question here is: why didn't Blizzard do this themselves, five years ago?
