Diablo III opening cinematic released

There's nothing quite like a good ol' game of Diablo to get you out of the everyday hum-drum of normal human life, and as Blizzard has proven with their eternally entertaining first two installments of this birds-eye-view hack and slash adventure game, Diablo III has a lot to live up to -- today we get our first glimpse of the first three minutes of the game as it's set to be released in 2012, cinematic one and the start of the continued hellish storyline. What you're about to see is Deckard Cain, also known as the dirty old man whose fortune it's been to both be the keeper of the lore of this game series and the one who's always burning in hell while you fight the forces of evil. Cain has a niece now too, and as a meteor shower is about to prove, his ramblings about the return of the forces of hell to the earth to bring about a new terror are more than just a little bit true - great holes of flame!

EA Takedown Orders Sent to Ultima IV Servers Preceding 2011 Reboot

Are you familiar with the game Ultima? It's one of the most insanely popular video game series of all time. It has several games in several different genres of gameplay, including a game by the name of Ultima Online - one of the longest running and most successful MMORPGs in the time MMORPGs have been in existence.

People still use mousepads? Wait, what's that, people still use a mouse to click things on their computer screen? Man, it's been so long since I've used a desktop for anything day-to-day that it threw me for a loop seeing this SteelSeries QcK Diablo 3 Barbarian Edition mousepad.
