Blizzard drops name, brings it back like acid-washed jeans and shoulder pads

Just about a year ago everyone (mostly Tarryn) freaked the hell out when Blizzard decided to change the name of their online gaming service from to Blizzard… something. Well, it looks like the developer has finally regained its sanity and has decided to bring back the beloved name. Sort of.

Meet Blizzard, a name that rolls off the tongue like I roll off the couch after the entire lower half of my body falls asleep. According to a post on the developer’s official site, the reasoning behind the new branding has something to do with standing for “something special” and then something about listening to feedback. But it’s probably mostly due to the fact that it confused the crap out of everyone.
