Trailer Park (10/24/11)
by Matt Waitt [ Monday, 24th of October 2011 - 11:09 PM ]
Blizzard has released a new cinematic trailer for Diablo III featuring some very scary atmosphere and demons. The new trailer also shows off some of the story we can expect in Diablo III, such as Asmodon trying to acquire the Black Soulstone to rule as the true prime evil. If my memory serves me correct there are seven prime evils and in Diablo II we killed three of them: Mephisto, Diablo and Baal. The trailer also shows us a new character, who I believe is Deckard Cain's niece, whose name I do not know at this point. But enough of my rambling, enjoy the trailer. Read More...

Foo Fighters Set To Rock BlizzCon 2011
by Corey Dockendorf [ Wednesday, 28th of September 2011 - 05:01 PM ]
Every year BlizzCon bring some of the most amazing talent to their closing ceremonies at BlizzCon and this year is no exception. Usually fans wait patiently to find out who will be this year's guest and Blizzard has really outdone themselves. With past musical performances by Tenacious D, Ozzy Osbourne and The Offspring, this year we will welcome the Foo Fighters will grace the stage at the Anaheim convention center during the event held October 21st - 22nd. Over the course of their 16-year career, the Foo Fighters have sold tens of millions of records, won half a dozen Grammy awards, and raised countless voices in sing-alongs of iconic anthems like "Everlong," "My Hero," "Learn to Fly", "All My Life," “Best of You,” and “The Pretender.” Foo Fighters' BlizzCon debut marks founder Dave Grohl's triumphant return to the convention after playing drums for Tenacious D in last year's show, and comes during an international arena, stadium, and festival tour promoting their seventh album, the international #1 record Wasting Light.

Blizzcon 2010 In A Nutshell
by Corey Dockendorf [ Monday, 25th of October 2010 - 10:16 PM ]
Here we are, the day after the most anticipated weekend of conventions, Blizzcon. For your typical Blizzcon, it seemed they didn't have any major announcements this year. No Diablo III release date. No word on their new MMO (World of Jersey Shorecraft??) but I will say the cosplay contest was probably the best I've seen so far. Chris Metzen hosted this year's keynote, and after some Blizzard buffs, we broke into a steady run of news beginning with the next WoW expansion. World of Warcraft: Cataclysm will be on sale December 7th, and for those that don't want to wait in line at midnight, players can buy and download directly from the website in advance. Read More...

Review: StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
by Corey Dockendorf [ Friday, 27th of August 2010 - 04:15 PM ]
Starcraft II has been out for almost a month now and Binh and I finally had an opportunity to sit down and really get into the game. All we can tell you is that if you haven't had a chance to pick up the title, you need to go out and do so right now. We should state that this review is going to be mainly about the campaign mode because the multiplayer is worthy of a whole review in itself. (I am locking myself in a closet and playing multiplayer until my eyes bleed Zerg Blood.) Let Binh and I break it down for you. Read More...

Starcraft II - The Lost Viking
by Corey Dockendorf [ Wednesday, 28th of July 2010 - 06:13 PM ]
Starcraft II was released yesterday and to most players surprise we got two games for the price of one. By accessing an arcade in the cantina of the Hyperion, players are able to play an Asteroids like shooter called "Lost Viking". In homage to the classic Blizzard SNES 1994 title The Lost Vikings. Dear Blizzard, how are we supposed to complete one of the longest waited for titles to date, when you keep putting addicting mini-games in to keep us distracted? So picture this, you play a mighty Viking and are flying through outer space trying to find your way home to Vikingville. All while being chased by the evil Terra-Tron "HE DOES NOT LIKE YOU!!!

StarCraft II: The Commercial
by Binh Nguyen [ Thursday, 10th of June 2010 - 10:10 PM ]
So you thought you had to wait for the new StarCraft II commercial that is airing tonight during the NBA finals between the L.A Lakers and the Boston Celtics? Well I have news for you. You don't have to wait that long for it. Seems someone at Blizzard thought a Zerg rush was coming because the video is out right now for your viewing pleasure. While watching the commercial you will see some familiar stuff, but the rest of it is brand spanking new. The game is shaping up to be one of those games that is well worth the long wait that we all had to endure. Read More...

Blizzcon 2009 Day 1
by Binh Nguyen [ Monday, 24th of August 2009 - 06:01 PM ]
Never have I been in a place where I have seen so many nerds, geeks, and dorks in one area. Oh wait, yeah I have, as E3 and Comic-con were the other places. Just in case you didn't notice, Blizzard held their now annual event, Blizzcon, at the Anaheim Convention Center on August 21st and 22nd. Thousands of nerds, geeks, and dorks all gathered to see, play, and talk about Blizzard's 3 main franchises; Starcraft, Waracraft and Diablo. Friday morning, as I arrived to the convention center the first thing you would see are the nerds, geeks, and dorks waiting in line. Some of which stayed overnight to be one of the first few to get into the center. Read More...

Starcraft II Beta Tech Tree Hey all you Starcraft fans out there! Or, if anything, people out there that want to play the game right now but obviously do not have access to the games Beta build.

That being the Tech Tree for the three factions of Starcraft II. Now mind you, these are still early shots and things could change. Read More...
