Blizzard announced that with Warlords of Draenor patch 6.0.2 they are going to release all names that have not been active (logged into) since November 13th 2008.
What this means is, if you have a toon name that you may still want in the future (you know when you come back to play Warlords ;) ) then you need to log on to your character and get back to playing!
Here is the link to Blizz's official announcement:
Some highlights in this patch-of-plenty are:
One of the things I love about big title releases is the amount of cool things they can do. Today, Bungie released a live-action short of the three classes kicking butt and taking names.
Another awesome thing they did was to create a google street view of the game's maps. Complete with narration and paused scenes of intense action: https://www.destinyplanetview.com/en/
Destiny's release date is this coming tuesday (9/9/2014), and will launch on PS4, PS3, XBOX ONE and XBOX 360.

A handful of us have started playing Firefall since its official release and have deemed it, "a really fun game". We are working on progressing to end-game content with a raiding focus. As part of this guild/army formation, we held a poll to decide what short code tag we would use. Thanks to all that voted!
The official army name and tag is:
For those of you who haven't played Firefall, it's a really fun game, and it's free to play, so try it out by downloading the client and join us for world domination, Defiant style!
If you are not a member of the Defiant army, you'll have to submit an invite request, or find me online and ask for an invite.
Don't know how to send an invite request? That's because the army UI is still being developed. Here's how to do it:
How to get to the army terminal:
Option 1: Go to the western end of Copacabana and interact with the army terminal
Option 2: Push the escape button, then click on Options->Keybindings->Interface. Then select the empty square next to "Army". Push a key that already isn't bound to something (like '\'). Close those menus and then push that key that you bound.
Then, search for "Defiant". Once you find the army, select it and send a request to join. (If you are a member of the Homestarmy, you'll need to leave that army before joining Defiant)
I have been told by a reliable source that the Army UI along with other army features and perks are currently being worked on. No news yet as to what's coming, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, we're gearing up for end-game and raids. See you in game!
We are excited to announce our new Kickstarter project: Defiant Community Game Server!!
This Kickstarter project is aimed at replacing our current server and hosting setup with a new, dedicated and fully owned server powered by your donations! Currently we have some good friends who are loaning us hardware and a spot on a rack. This situation is going to change soon, so we'd like to get a jump start on it by moving things over to a permanent solution.
What is the Defiant Community Game Server? Well, it's a server that hosts this website, but it also hosts whatever games and game-related services that you'd like. Our currently hosted services are: Mumble, Minecraft, Cube World and Team Fortress 2. That is not a final list, however. The new server will be equipped to handle a variety of games and services and perform well under load.
If you have a game or game-related service that you would like to be hosted, don't hesitate to post it below.
For more details on the server specs and arrangement, please visit our Kickstarter page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1655346897/defiant-community-game-server

I have played this game for a few hours (got in early before the launch) and I can say that they have brought it back around from that super-long beta and really hit it out of the park! This game is fun!

Here is a high-level list of things to look forward to with the live release:
