PAX East 2010 Gallery

Penny Arcade creators Gabe and Tycho brought the ever-growing Penny Arcade Expo to the Bay State this weekend, with nerdfolk from all over pouring into Boston, MA for PAX East. As the sole WoW.com rep at the show (with Spiritual Guidance's Fox Van Allen in attendance as "just a dude" instead of "dude with a press badge"), I stomped the floor with the Joystiq and Massively crew, who squeezed every last drop of relevant info from the expo at record speed. "Hello my boss Chris Grant of Joystiq fame," I would tap out on my smartphone, "here's a pretty hot gaming scoop just revealed moments ago!" He would reply three seconds later with "Already posted," with an image attached of his frowning face.

As for my site's particular field of interest -- was there a lot of Blizzard-related news? Not really! Thankfully, on top of news about other MMOs, there was some other stuff going on, which you can see in this gallery. There was WoW-related stuff worth writing about though, which'll be posted in the next day or so.

A special thanks to all the readers who stopped by to say hello to me! We love you guys, and we'll see you at BlizzCon in full effect.

World of WarCrafts: BlizzCon photo frame

Every Thursday, Shelbi Roach of The Bronze Kettle guides you in creating WoW-inspired crafts using real world mats with World of WarCrafts.

This year I was fortunate enough to attend BlizzCon, and while my experience ranked right up there with getting a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas, there was one thing missing. A picture frame.

How Blizzard forgot to include such a simple product in their stores, made to protect our memories of such a grand event, escapes me. However, this oversight has allowed me to craft a frame reminiscent of the icy chill soon to takeover what's left of our social lives, Wrath of the Lich King.

Here is what you will need:
  • Unfinished Photo Frame
  • Balsa Wood Sticks
  • Wood Saw
  • Spray Paint (you may have some leftover from crafting the Cataclysm's Edge)
  • Blue Glitter Flakes
  • Photo Paper
  • Overlaminate Sheet
  • Mod Podge

World of WarCrafts: Raid art

Every Thursday, Shelbi Roach of The Bronze Kettle guides you in creating WoW-inspired crafts using real world mats with World of WarCrafts.

With Wrath looming over the horizon, the instances we currently spend all of our time inwill become obsolete. The dusty halls of Karazhan will be forgotten and we will never have another chance at obtaining an Amani War Bear.

So, here's your chance to commemorate the good times with your fellow guildies and spruce up your WoWspace.

Here is what you will need:
  • White Cardstock
  • Color Printer
  • Scissors
  • Paper Cutter
  • Xacto Knife
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Photo Frames (8x10)
  • Matboard (3 for 8x10 frames)

World of WarCrafts: Conjured photo frame

Every Thursday, Shelbi Roach of The Bronze Kettle guides you in creating WoW-inspired crafts using real world mats with World of WarCrafts.

Mages deserve some love. Providing hundreds of biscuits and polymorphing adds for your raid is sure to take a toll on even the hardiest of magi. Not to mention removing curses, stealing buffs, and making everyone temporarily smarter. Oh yeah, there's that damage dealing thing they do too.

So take some time to express some gratitude for your under-appreciated arcane ally by conjuring up this custom photo frame.


Here is what you will need:
  • Scrapbook Frame
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Soft Glitter Paint
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Fine Glitter
  • Gems (also used in the Voidwalker Doorknob Hanger)
  • Mod Podge
  • Wooden Letters
  • Wooden Sheep Shape
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Xacto Knife
  • Paper Cutter
  • Pencil
  • Toothpicks
  • Paintbrushes

Rumor: Wrath of the Lich King Collector's Edition box

Here's some good Wrath of the Lich King rumor-juice for you tonight. Pictured to the right is what has shown up on the internet as a Wrath of the Lich King Collector's Edition box. I for one think it looks real. It was posted on the Paladin Schmaladin blog two months ago, although reader Allen just tipped us to it this evening.

The poster over there notes that the box comes from her friend Gene, who supposedly works at a printing facility. Gene couldn't get one out of the printing factory, so instead he snapped an image of the box with his cellphone.

Through Paladin Schmaladin, we're also told that the printing press had the WotLK box orders pushed back four months. This could be an indication that Lich King will be coming out later than expected, although since Blizzard hasn't really announced a release date, we'd probably never know the difference.

Nonetheless, enjoy your nightly WotLK rumor. It looks to be a good one.

Delicious Hordecake


This is certainly the best WoW-themed edible item I've seen yet. What impresses me is that even the wood-looking part of the shield is edible -- that can't have been easy. Apparently the person who made this has a habit of making awesome cakes, which makes sense; you wouldn't expect a cake this nice from a noob cakester. She's been dating a WoW player, and made him this for his birthday. I wish my girlfriend was this supportive of my WoW habit...At any rate, head over to flickr for a few more photos, including really big ones if you want to print out a life-sized version and pretend.

Seen any other good cakes lately?
[thanks, Nelson]
