It’s almost that time of the year again, ladies and gentlemen. That time where Southern California is ravaged by a veritable blizzard of all-things Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo (pun totally intended). BlizzCon 2014 is set to take place this November 7-8, and Nerdist will be out at the event in full force from the minute the doors open at the Anaheim Convention Center.
First off, there’s the one and only Chris Hardwick! You know, that one guy who hosts Comedy Central’s late night TV social media phenomenon @midnight, and Overlord of all things Nerdist. He’ll be the master of ceremonies for BlizzCon’s always entertaining annual community events, such as the legendary costume contest and the high-octane talent contest, both taking place on Friday night of the convention.
Also representing the Nerdist family at BlizzCon is the wickedly talented Michele Morrow, who will be co-hosting the news desk alongside Geoff Keighley, taking you head first inside the BlizzCon experience, and providing you with exclusive one-on-one interviews with various Blizzard Entertainment designers, artists, producers, and more. Who better to usher viewers through their BlizzCon journey than Ms. Morrow? She’s been an extremely active member in the Blizzard community for a long time, and has quite a few hosting credentials of her own, to boot. Michele is also in the thick of producing a World of Warcraft-inspired documentary from Andie Bolt called Road to Azeroth, which focuses on the life of a woman with Neuro Endocrine Tumors who uses World of Warcraft as a means of coping with the illness.
If you’re not going to be able to physically join us in Anaheim for convention, then don’t worry! The BlizzCon Virtual Ticket is your surefire way of experiencing the fun-filled festivities of BlizzCon from the comfort of your own home. They’re available right now for you to order at BlizzCon.com for the slim price $39.99 USD. That’s like half of what you’d pay for a WWE or UFC pay-per-view event, and you get two days worth full of exciting content. The value speaks for itself. Even if you don’t buy a ticket, you’ll still have access to all of the wondrous Blizzard e-sports action that’s set to take place at the convention, which is arguably more entertaining than both the aforementioned live sporting brands. But still, don’t you want to clutch that sweet, sweet ticket in your virtual hands?
