Carbine Donates Rocket House to Child's Play

If you attended PAX East 2014 this year, you might have seen LEGO Artist extraordinaire, Mariann Asanuma, constructing a WildStar Rocket House made entirely from Lego pieces. As promised, Carbine Studios donated the entire 50,000 piece Rocket House, along with a $10,000 check, to Child's Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games.

Civilization: Beyond Earth - PAX Panel

Heroes of the Storm: PAX East Video Recaps

Nexus Talk Episode 47: WildStar at PAX East

Nexus Talk Episode 47 is live and we join Richie Procopio as he reports from the Carbine booth at PAX East about the juicy bits of information revealed at the WildStar panel in the main theater.

WildStar PAX Panel: Eldergame and Itemization

PAX East is officially underway this weekend and if you've been paying any attention to the news surrounding the upcoming MMO WildStar, then you know Carbine has landed smack dab in the middle of Boston and is preparing for world domination. Seriously, I wonder how many Settlers it took to set up this booth! With 300 demo computers installed with the game, developers answering questions and giant bulletin boards that would give even the largest in-game bosses a run for their money, if you didn't know about WildStar before, chances are it'll at least be on your radar by the time the weekend lets out.

While the WildStar booth is pretty impressive, the highlight of the show for most fans–and those still discovering the game–had to be the Carbine panel, "$#!& Just Got Real", that was held Friday afternoon. During the panel the Carbine team primarily discussed WildStar's "Elder Game", reviewing previous information like rated PvP Battlegrounds and Arenas, but also dishing out a handful of new tidbits including Elder Game solo story-content and Itemization. A pretty epic "WildStar Flick" for the game's 40v40 Elder Game PvP type, Warplots, was shown during the panel as well, but we'll talk more about that at a later date.

For now I want to focus on the information we received relating to solo story-instances and item progression, because who doesn't like epic encounters accompanied by epic loot?

Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth Announced

Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth is the latest entry in the Civilization series, due out this fall.

As the human race struggles to recover, the re-developed nations focus their resources on deep space travel to chart a new beginning for mankind.

Heroes of the Storm: Three New Videos

Held tantalizingly above our greedy paws, Heroes of the Storm remains in a closed "technical alpha". Presumably to tease us further, Blizzard released two three new videos to show off the game. For good measure, they threw in a few new heroes and the fan-favorite "Pajamathur" skin.

Okay, no more stalling. Take a look and tell us what you think!
