Heroes of the Storm: The Mayhem Begins

The Heroes of the Storm event was, at first, an odd thing. Being in LA up in the mountains around non-descript buildings, sand-laden parking lots and boring landscapes was nothing to write a symphony about. The parking lot for YouTube was small, so I was directed to an overflow lot. Nothing lept out of me saying "This is YouTube, folks, we're kind of a big deal," so it was safe to say that anonymity was important. However, the next place I went was enough to include in this article.

I have to admit, I'm just a little bit giddy about getting to write a post about Wizardry Online. You see, I grew up in the era where games like Ultima ruled the pixels on my Apple //e 80-column screen. Long before I spent countless hours roaming dungeons in MMOs, I was doing it in Wizardry.
