There was a to-do recently when Blizzard lawyers forced the World of Warcraft Nostalrius servers to close.

As a child, I used to believe that there was more to the world than meets the eye. Not fairies, of course. Nothing so diaphanous or innocent. Growing up in Malaysia, my imagination swarmed with hungry ghosts and pontianaks, and all the other things that go bump in the Southeast Asian night. Show More Summary

Lost Reavers for the Wii U is probably the worst game I've played this year, so far. I was trying to decide how best to sum up my disdain for the game and I think the following screen grab taken from a chat I was having with Johnny does the job pretty well.
