Blizzard has confirmed that their upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft, Warlords of Draenor, will not require a computer upgrade.

"You shouldn't be worried about any big drop in performance; things will most likely remain very close to what you are experiencing right now. So if you're satisfied with what you have right now, then there shouldn't be any need to change anything," Blizzard assured on the official forums.

Blizzard still has not posted an official release date for the expansion, but they say it will release later this year.

Marty O'Donnell, composer well known for the music in the Halo and Myth series, was fired by Bungie's Board of Directors last week.

O'Donnell also worked on the score for Bungie's upcoming sci-fi shooter, Destiny.

Bungie has only offered the following statement on the situation, which naturally, does not include an explanation.

For more than a decade, Marty O'Donnell filled our worlds with unforgettable sounds and soundtracks, and left an indelible mark on our fans. Today, as friends, we say goodbye. We know that wherever his journey takes him, he will always have a bright and hopeful future.

We wish him luck in all his future endeavors.

Sony is no longer the third largest shareholder of Square Enix, as the company is selling every last piece of Squenix stock it owns.

For the last ten years, Sony has owned about 9.5 million shares in Square Enix stock, and they plan to sell it all to SMBC Nikko, a global securities firm. Even though the stock is estimated to be worth around $157 million, they are selling it for $47 million.

This move could be part of the pressure CEO Kaz Hirai has to cut corporate costs, and it could also be due to Square Enix's multiplatform approach with series that were traditionally PlayStation exclusives and Square Enix's own financial troubles. It will be interesting to see how this affects both companies down the road.

Steam is a very useful digital delivery service (Hey, free endorsement! Where's my money Valve?). All those cool and welcome Holiday sales, discounts and so on. Many, many awesome games on offer, from unknown indie gems to some of the best triple-A titles money can buy. The question is: do people actually play these games? Well, of course they do.

However, a majority of Steam's community are folks who just make the purchase and then never bother to play the game.

Most of the sales on this list include Team Fortress and Dota players, which I'm pretty sure are hardcore gamers. Then, who are the 37% that never play the games they buy? There are a couple of possible explanations here. These are individuals who "have a life," but are still drawn to games because they love them or they merely buy them out of nostalgia. Ya know, you play games and it's fun, and then it's school time or job time or marriage time. Either way, these people just don't have the time to play games, even though they'd probably like to. Instead, they're too busy grinding away at some desk-job that sucks their souls dry. So at the end of the day, they just want to go out and eat grass or drown in the bottom of a beer can.

Bane has a normal life like the rest of us apparently. From what I'm told this movie is pretty good. No spectacular stunts and exposions. Just Tom Hardy in a car, in what's already being described as one of the actor's best performances. Incidentally, I owe you guys two apologies. One - sorry if I've been a bit absent-minded lately, but I had to level my Crusader to 70. Also, my mind drifts a lot. Chalk it up to loneliness and the lousy economy, as well as the lack of any proper game releases. And no sex, of course. Yeah, that always makes me sad and annoyed. Two - sorry about the previous comic. It's one of the stupidest comics I've made. I actually considered pulling the damn thing off the web site. So, thank God for babes and ocassionaly semi-funny comics. Well, just the babes, anyway.

Honestly, the dulness of our everyday existense is enough to drive you completely mad. And right now I'm madder than a toilet brush.

Rayman creator Michel Ancel showed off new artwork for Jade, the main character of Beyond Good & Evil in what appears to be a tease for the game's sequel.

Ancel presented this new art during a Twitch livestream of the PS4 version of Rayman Legends. While the Ubisoft Montpelier team played the game, viewers asked questions about Beyond Good & Evil 2.

"Working on Rayman Legends was a nice holiday," Ancel said. "We're going to make serious games [now], man. And Beyond Good & Evil 2 would be a good candidate for a serious game..." He then ran off to get this artwork to show to the camera.

Ancel has said that "so many people Ubisoft want to make that game," but nothing is ready for the studio to confirm it will indeed release. This game is becoming akin to The Last Guardian but hopefully won't reach Half-Life 3 proportions.

Not every politician is out to make the world of video games more difficult for the studios and the consumers. Last week, a group of Swedish politicians got together to play in a StarCraft II tournament they called Politikerstarcraft.

Jonathan Rieder Lundkvist, the creator of the event, explained that the tournament's purpose was to "increase awareness of e-sports in politics, and of politics among gamers." This was the second Politikerstarcraft tournament. The first one was in 2010 alongside the elections in Sweden.

I'd love to see the US politicians do something similar. Surely hell will freeze over at one point.

Several reports are suggesting that the release date for the PC version of Dark Souls 2 has been pushed to May 2nd from April 25th. Customers who have preordered from Amazon UK have posted to NeoGAF emails they received from the online retailer about the delay, and ShopTo has changed the game's release day to May 2nd.

GamesKeyNow also claims to have an official word that the PC version has been delayed worldwide, not just in the UK.

Neither From Software nor Namco Bandai has said a word on the matter, and Amazon.com still lists the game to release on April 25th. We'll continue to monitor these reports and update with any confirmations.
