Here be dragons. And a billion-dollar deal.
GamesBeat wrote a lot about dragons this week, be they in the movie theater or behind a dungeon master’s screen. We also saw a key piece of Blizzard’s strategy for its Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft digital card game launch (and we can help you with it if you’re stuck), earnings news (and game delays) from two of gaming’s biggest publishers, and Google taking over another realm of video with its confirmed purchase of Twitch.
And we also read about how some developers react when the rockets and bombs are in real life, not just on the screens of the games they make.
