2010/05/10 at 8:52 PM
Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming the newest member of the ZAM Network...
For those of you who have never visited,
is the premier WoW video site on the internet, and they have unmistakably the best strategy videos available. A number of us here at Wowhead are already regular users, and we're very excited about the opportunity to work directly with them.
So what does this mean for Tankspot users? Firstly, the entire staff at TankSpot will be staying on to continue to maintain and improve the site—just like when Wowhead joined ZAM three years ago, you will continue to see the same high quality of content you've always seen from TankSpot. As time goes on, we'll be able to grow the existing site, and add new features and content. Plus, once we get our APIs integrated, ZAM and Wowhead
users will also get premium privileges on TankSpot, and vice versa!
For Wowhead users, you're going to start see more interactive and video content popping up around the site. In fact, you may have already noticed the first major change: Boss pages on Wowhead now feature

2010/04/21 at 7:18 PM
Cody Bye, the Director of Content of ZAM, has just interviewed
, one of the most famous writers of novels and short stories for not only World of Warcraft, but a number of other fictional worlds. Knaak's "Blizzard" bibliography includes novels like
(the latest official Warcraft novel on the market), 3 standalone Diablo novels,
The Sin War
War of the Ancients
trilogy, as well as 2 standalone novels other than
. In addition to those, he has an impressive number of Dragonlance, Dragonrealm, Conan, individual novels... not to mention his short fiction pieces and the manga.
Sadly, this interview didn't quench my thirst for lore (could anything?), but it was an interesting read nonetheless. The interview is after the break!

You've Seen CES Coverage—Now See the OTHER Convention Footage
2010/01/27 at 4:52 PM
So ZAM has been posting coverage of the
convention this yeah, but those who have attended (and some who haven't) know that on that particular weekend in Las Vegas, there are
conventions—CES, and the
Adult Entertainment Expo
. So basically the whole weekend is a celebration of the two things that 18-34 year old males like best.
So of course,
Mike B aka Fony
couldn't resist the temptation to pay the AEE a little visit. For those of you who are interested (which I suspect is more of you than would otherwise let on), you can find the video here:
Please note: While the video is strictly PG, it's still probably not the kind of thing you want to be watching at work.

Mass Effect 2 is an upcoming RPG from
, makers of Knights of the Old Republic (and the upcoming MMO, The Old Republic), as well as Dragon Age: Origins (the last game I pulled an all nighter on).

Star Trek Online Beta Keys for Premium Members
2010/01/14 at 12:18 AM
Just thought I'd take a moment to point out: the open beta for
Star Trek Online
has begun recently, but beta keys are hard to come by—unless, of course, you're a
here at Wowhead!
Here's How You Do It
Start by becoming a Premium user: click
and then follow the process.
Your Premium status is stored at
. When you
for Premium, Wowhead checks to see if you already have an account at ZAM, or at
, by cross-checking the email addresses. If you have a ZAM account already, it signs that account up for Premium and links it to your Wowhead account. If you don't, it silently creates a ZAM account (something like Malgayne|WH) and links THAT to your Wowhead account. Obviously we'll be streamlining this in the future. :P
In order to claim your Star Trek Online beta key, you need to log in to your ZAM account at
. But if you created your account silently, you won't have a password—so you need to go [url=
