Blizzard has erected a 2-ton, 10-foot high, 14-foot wide bronze statue of Arthas Menethil in a park in Taichung, Taiwan as a tribute to the Taiwanese gaming community and in celebration of Blizzard Entertainment’s 25th anniversary.
It took 9 months for an entire team of artists and craftspeople to create this statue which is described as “The Lich King in his purest form”. It truly is an incredible work of art and a fitting tribute to the legions of gamers around the world who have spent so many hours trying to down him over the years. The video below is a tribute as well—to gamers, to Warcraft, and to the power of story and it’s ability to last over the decades. [click to continue…]

Just like the original bit of art they’re based on, these are charming, clever, funny, and they’re good advice too! You can check them out below. [click to continue…]
