Everyone is waiting for Spring semester to end. We all want this snow to stop. I mean, come on, it's April. We're so close, yet so far from freedom. Let's be honest, we've all lost the motivation to do school work. In comes Netflix, Hulu, AmazonVideo, etc. Here's a list of a few good shows to binge while you're procrastinating:

1. "Happy Endings"

If you're looking for some flip-flopping plot twists, this is the show for you. This sitcom follows a group of friends from all walks of life. It includes being left at the altar, coming out as gay, and drunken nights out.

2. "Grace & Frankie"

Again with the plot twists. Grace & Frankie find out that their husbands are leaving them... For each other? At the age of 70, their business partner husbands admit to having an affair for the last 20 years and decide to get married.

3. "Parks & Recreation"

No, this is not just a knock-off of "The Office". Leslie Knope and the crew will steal your heart, guaranteed. If you need laughs, look no further.

4. "That 70's Show"

This doesn't need an explanation. It's a classic. Eric's gang will have you in tears laughing.

5. "Nailed It!"

Have you ever seen "Girl Code"? Watch Nicole Byer, a professional chef, and a guest judge put normal, everyday people to the test by having them replicate professional cakes, cupcakes, and pastries with fancy or silly designs.

17 years ago, the legion invaded the realm of Azeroth, forcing the different races of Humans, Orcs, Night elves, and Undead to make the most unlikely of alliances. There were those who fought for the light while the others wished to banish it. Night and day, the furnaces of Lordaeron burnt bright as the loyal dwarves of Khaz Modan hammer away the swords and shields that would aid the fight ahead.

17 years ago, the young orc warchief Thrall foresaw the fate of his people as meteors of green flames crash upon his lands. He saw the upcoming demise of his clanand ordered a mass evacuation towards a new continent where they shall be safe for generations to come. 17 years ago, the night elves felt a corruption within the Tree of Life, causing them to split into opposing factions: one fought in the name of the Goddess, while the other fought in the name of personal hatred. 17 years ago, a legion of undead came upon the shores of Lordaeron, plaguing the land and defiling the life force of the realm. That was the story of Warcraft, one that spanned continents and races only to join them together for a crucial battle of their history.

Warcraft was a monument to an entire gaming generation, ranked 2nd best game of all time by German games magazine "GameStar." Its fate, however, was ultimately sealed as computing technology became better and overshadowed the old giant. Plus, with the rise of gaming consoles and handheld gaming devices, PC gaming lost its appeal slowly, and games like Starcraft or Warcraft eventually faded into oblivion.

But over on the horizon, Blizzard Entertainment came to the rescue. Following the success of their previous release of Starcraft: Remastered, they decided to come forth with their next great project: remastering Warcraft 3.

Using a new and revamped engine built over the foundations of the old one, they have rebuilt the world we once loved. Adding to that are new, high definition voices and sound effects that they recorded just for this old game. For the blurry characters of old, the team decided to upscale and remodel all present units to give them the 2019 high-def treatment they deserved. For the old user interface (UI), the development team settled on one that resembled the "Starcraft: Remastered" interface, offering more room for players to look at the gorgeous 4K character models. Also, to fit the new continuity from World of Warcraft, Blizzard opted to alter the story by a small margin, showing promising changes to the revived game.

However, not everyone was hyped when the game was announced. Many gamers expressed disappointment at Blizzard's move of remastering old games instead of developing new ones. Many, feeling uncomfortable at the company's decision, took to the internet and into forums. Some fans expressed concerns over Blizzard's decision to retcon a game they hold dear Some are unhappy with the graphics not being consistent with characters: unit models look too detailed while buildings look cartoonish.

Despite all this, the general population loved the announcement at Blizzcon. As the game slowly reaches its release date of December 31, 2019, the hype can only go up from here. For those of us who can't hold their excitement, here's a video of the crowd's insane reaction to the announcement:
