That’s Life (In #HeroesoftheStorm) – A @BlizzCon Talent Contest Video Submission by @TheGeekyHusband !!

My friend, a true friend of the show, and my recently-discovered neighbor (we live less than 30 minutes apart), Stephen Haberman aka The Geeky Husband, just posted this EPIC Heroes of the Storm parody song for the Blizzcon Talent Contest!!

Here are the notes he put on the YouTube video:

—————————————–

Here is my talent contest submission for Blizzard Entertainment’s Blizzcon 2014 contest. The song is called “That’s Life (In Heroes of the Storm) , which features reworked lyrics for the Blizzcon version of the song, made popular by Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble, but written by Dean Kay and Kelly Gordon.

LYRICS

That’s life
That’s what all the people say
You’re riding high in April, shot down in May
But I know I’m gonna change that tune
When I’m on the Beta, on the Beta in June

I said that’s life
And as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks by causing scenes
But I don’t let it, let it get me down
‘Cause this Nexus, it keeps spinnin’ around

I’ve been a support, a warrior, a specialist, assassin and a dragon knight
I’ve been up and down and over and out , in every fight
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I respawn and get back in the base race

————————-When this video begins———————————-­—-

That’s life
I can’t deny it
I thought of rage-quitting, but my Heartstone ain’t gonna buy it
And if I didn’t think it was worth one single try
I’d jump right on a mount and then I’d fly

I’ve been a support, a warrior, a specialist, assassin and a dragon knight
I’ve been up and down and over and out , in every fight
Each time I find myself layin’ flat on my face
I just pick myself up and get back in the race

That’s life
That’s life and I can’t deny it
Many times I thought of signing out but my Heartstone won’t buy it
But if there’s no beta release come this July
I’m gonna go into the forums and troll, all night

I’m gonna bring you down
I’m gonna keep you down
I’ll keep trollin and trollin, 
trollin and trollin

Heroes of the Storm – First Look; featuring Nova Gameplay

Heroes NovaHey, all! Jaetch here. It’s been a while since I submerged myself in the Heroes of the Storm world. As I’m primarily a Diablo III player, the recent (well, month-old) launch of D3’s first expansion, Reaper of Souls, pretty much ate up all my gaming time and I am totally okay with that.

However, I did not forget there’s something on my table that I have to taste. That’s right, the Heroes of the Storm Technical Alpha.
