Blizzcon live reportage, Soosdon style!
Nope, I am not at Blizzcon (2200 eur for flight tickets to US is a bit too much for me) - I gave in and bought the stream!
I've not participated in the machinima contest either.
Every other site is doing this, so am I! I'll be updating some stuff what's going on. The timestamps will be in Finland time (GMT +2).
Ok, still pissed and disappointment about DirecTV. But, the full list of machinima contest winners looks like this:
1. Cranius & Legs - link to video
2. Mike Spiff
Huge congratulations to C&L, excellent video! Solid, simple and functional.
