Metallica To Play At BlizzCon 2014

BlizzCon, which is being held on November 7th and 8th in Anaheim, California this year, is the go-to fan gathering for those who enjoy Blizzards many-storied franchises, Including Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo; and is a place that fans can gather, mingle, and generally geek out over this collective love of all things Blizzard. This year, in addition to all the usual fun to be had, Metallica will also be hitting the stage to give the crowd a blast of heavy metal to put a fitting end to a weekend of fandom and fun.

“We’re thrilled to have Metallica blowing out our speakers at BlizzCon this year,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “After two full days of epic gaming and intense eSports action, an earth-shaking concert is the perfect sendoff for everyone at the show and watching from home.”

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
