How to remotely queue for WoW Classic while you work

How to remotely queue for WoW Classic while you work

We're now a couple of days out from the launch of World of Warcraft Classic, and unfortunately, the insanely long queue times don't seem to be getting any better. Players are facing 6+ hour queue times just to get into some of the more popular WoW Classic realms, and though Blizzard has added more servers in the time since launch, it doesn't seem to be helping the problem much.

NBA 2K20 trailer is a tone deaf love letter to loot boxes

NBA 2K20 trailer is a tone deaf love letter to loot boxes

You'd think that given the unrest surrounding loot boxes, most publishers would want to avoid drawing attention to them. Take-Two is not one of those publishers. One of the new trailers for NBA 2K20, which is out next week, is somehow all about microtransactions. We're not really sure who at 2K Games thought this trailer was a good idea considering the heat that companies like EA have received for their characterization of loot boxes, but it really comes off as a tone deaf celebration of the thing gamers seem despise most at the moment.

World of Warcraft Classic has been a very wholesome experience so far

World of Warcraft Classic has been a very wholesome experience so far

World of Warcraft Classic has been widely available for a little under a day now, and for many people, a lot of that time has been spent contending with mind-numbingly long queue times. Right off the bat, the WoW Classic experience emulates that of 2004 WoW pretty well. Obviously, long queue times can be nostalgic, but once you actually get into the game, you'll find something that's missing from a lot of games these days: A real feeling of community.

World of Warcraft Classic gets three new realms as servers choke

World of Warcraft Classic gets three new realms as servers choke

It's been a pretty intense initial 24 hours for World of Warcraft Classic. A ton of players have been looking to log into the game and relive WoW as it existed in 2004, and because of that, the servers are having a difficult time keeping up. On many realms, players have been greeted by hours-long queues when they attempt to log in, and while that emulates the experience of launch-day World of Warcraft pretty darn well, it isn't exactly ideal.

Fortnite v10.20 patch notes reveal the Shield Bubble

Another Tuesday has arrived, which means another batch of Fortnite patch notes. We're getting another new item today, and instead of dealing out damage, this new item is all about playing defense. It's called the Shield Bubble, and it gives you a place to take refuge from gunfire and explosives. It isn't entirely impenetrable though, so even when taking cover within it, you're not completely safe.
