Hearthstone and Destiny combine for $1 billion in revenue

Hearthstone Gold

Is there ever going to be a product released by Activision that can’t be tied to $1 billion? First it was Call of Duty, and last year it was Skylanders. This year Activision is laughing all the way to the bank with Hearthstone and Destiny under its belt with the two properties combining for $1 billion in total revenue.

Activision announced the sales figures in its annual financial report, laying further praise on the Android port of Hearthstone for bringing the game’s userbase to 30 million people. Blizzard is reportedly larger than ever even though World of Warcraft lost 3 million subscribers over the course of the year.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare also rebounded from the disappointing sales of Call of Duty: Ghost with double digit percentage increases over the same year-to-year period. Black Ops has always been among the more popular Call of Duty sub-series as well, so expect that number to only rise heading into 2015 with the release of Black Ops 3.

The point is, like ’em or not, Activision is here to stay. I wonder if Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk are destined the be the next $1 billion gold mine for the company. I can see us returning to that shameful age of plastic instruments, and I’m already feeling just nauseous thinking about it.

Hopefully you have a thrift store located nearby your place, because it is guaranteed to have fake guitars leaking from its windows. They should work with the new Rock BandGuitar Hero? Not so much.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

¿Alguna vez has visto un ornitorrinco? Es probablemente el animal más extraño que jamás encuentres. Es un mamífero de sangre caliente, sin embargo, pone huevos. Está cubierto con la piel, pero se divierte un pico de pato. Y sus pies palmeados también parecen má…

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
