University of Texas and Blizzard COO Paul Sams launch game design academy

If you're looking to go pro in game design, Blizzard COO Paul Sams has teamed up with the University of Texas at Austin to create the Denius-Sams Gaming Academy. The academy will be led and taught by gaming industry executives and the curriculum will be guided by industry veteran Warren Spector. The 12-month, post-baccalaureate program will guide students through creating a game from start to finish, giving them the experience they need to join the gaming industry when they graduate.

"The University of Texas at Austin has a tremendous track record of building nationally recognized programs that generate the leaders and critical thinkers the gaming industry needs," Sams said. "The program will focus on building the skills required for students to lead teams and develop games from concept to completion, while growing talent for the gaming industry."

The program starts in 2014, but with only 20 spots available, you probably have a better chance of getting into a competitive raid guild.

WoW Moviewatch: World of Warcrack

I don't normally check out videos with no thumbnail preview or mid to high quality streams. However, World of Warcrack seemed to be garnering high ratings and comments. What I discovered was a really humorous take on WoW addiction. This video is a must see in my book!

Filmed at a University of Texas campus, the portrayal of college stereotypes are pretty spot on. Bryan Canatella also did a good job of illustrating that the pot shouldn't be calling the kettle black, as was the case with the heroin addict that felt his friend was addicted to Warcraft. Definitely check out the hilarious fight scene. You won't regret it.
