World of Warcraft: Ghostcrawler on Thunder King and Azeroth's Future
Recently, we caught up with Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street, Lead Systems Designer on World of Warcraft to talk about all things past, present and future of WoW. We chat about the new stuff in 5.2, how the team is focused on recapturing the magic of Vanilla WoW, and what the future holds, even hints of the next expansion.

We talk a lot about three types of players these days: our core audience, players who are "with" us. We can't afford to take them for granted. These guys have been with us for so long. Then we have brand new players, these are players who were too young when it first came out, but are our potential audience. Then there's a third category: which are players who used to play, and quit for whatever reason. We know they liked the game at one point, and we know that if we make the right decisions, maybe they'll come back. But a design that works for one of those three groups, doesn't necessarily work for the other ones. You can attract new players, but you might turn off existing players. We're focused on keeping players who are playing the game happy.

Marvel Heroes: A Deep Dive Into Marvel Heroes
Gazillion Entertainment's Marvel Heroes Online has been in beta testing for a short time. We've been putting on our tights and working the game for all it's worth. Check out our in-depth preview before heading to the comments to chat about it.

Few gamers would question the impact the Diablo franchise has had upon PC gaming. Many of us fondly recall staying up late into the night bashing demons as we plumbed the depths of Hell, and since then, we've tried unsuccessfully to recreate those memories by playing other games. Good news for us--David Brevik, the man behind Diablo and Diablo II, is currently hard at work at Gazillion Entertainment, crafting yet another unforgettable gaming experience. The game is Marvel Heroes, a free-to-play MMORPG that promises to do for superhero-dom what Diablo did for the infernal.
