Diablo III Runestone System Details

Diablo III Runestone System Details

Remember back when you were playing Diablo II and the expansion came out and Runes became the coolest thing you'd ever seen in your life? No? You never got into the whole making of rune-words thing? What about after they upgraded it in one of the patches?

That said, the newer Runestone system revealed today by Blizzard stands much more of an excellent chance at capturing our deamon-hating hearts than the original system did!

Diablo III “Followers” Announced

For those of you anxiously awaiting the next phase of one of the most addicting MMORPGs of all time, DIABLO, details on Diablo III can't come quick enough, nor can then come in enough abundance.

Rovio’s Mighty Eagle to Appear in Death Rally GDC 2011 iOS Destruction Derby Game

Rovio’s Mighty Eagle to Appear in Death Rally GDC 2011 iOS Destruction Derby Game

I suppose you could call this game more of a race and kill game, along the lines of Twisted Metal, if you know what I mean - does it sound like the kind of game you'd be seeing birds flying around in? Heck no! That's why we found it utterly baffling when @Rovio spoke of "Mighty Eagle" aka the pay-for-help element in the original Angry Birds game appearing here in this new game for iOS, a remake of the 1996 original, Death Rally GDC 2011. Thusly your humble narrator inquired on what the heck was going on, to which we received word that Angry Birds wouldn't be appearing in the game, but that Mighty Eagle would, aiding players in their tasks at hand. Oh eagle! Why weren't you around when I was trying to beat Final Fantasy 7!? Not even born yet.

Duke Nukem Forever Collectors Edition Revealed

For those of you wishing there wouldn't have been a gigantic span of around 12 years between now and the last Duke Nukem title, here's a little present for your wait. This is the Duke Nukem Forever Balls of Steel Edition that'll be coming out the same time as the standard edition comes out for the low low price of $99.99. It might seem a tad high for a game that's basically a shooter from the late 1990's, but can you really put a price on a bust of one of the most offensive video game characters of all time?

Apple TV to Support Gaming?

Apple TV to Support Gaming?

Strings inside Apple's iOS 4.3 beta firmware that'll be used on Apple TV have been shown to display clues leading to one possibility: the ability to play games on Apple TV without having to jailbreak first. An anonymous tipster speaking with Engadget has revealed the following references: "ATVGames" and "ATVThunder," both of them inside iOS 4.3 beta 3, as well as "com.apple.appletv.play.live.thunder" and ".play.archive.thunder." What's all that junk mean? It might be nothing of too much interest, but what these tipsters may have found are clues to a controller, a set of game leaderboards, a way to schedule games, and a storefront.

iPad Game for White Tigers Mimics Kitten Mittens Vibe

iPad Game for White Tigers Mimics Kitten Mittens Vibe

This is one of those bits of content that I think noone saw coming. This video and explanation for an app just showed up in our mailbox and despite, or perhaps because of it's utterly unbelievable preview video, it is amazing. The name of the app that the following wacky commercial is about is "Game for Cats." Sound good so far? No? Sounds kind of weird and for cat people, people who love cats? Do press on.

Nintendo Sticks Head in the Sand, Pretends Social Media isn’t Happening

Nintendo Sticks Head in the Sand, Pretends Social Media isn’t Happening

Nintendo has a bad habit of ignoring big threats until they become implacable foes. The latest goof? President Satoru Iwata attempted to allay investor's fears about social media games like FarmVille. He didn't do it by announcing a new Nintendo Facebook game or social networking service. Instead, he said this: "Nintendo has been developing social entertainment in the field of video games for a long time."

Oregon Trail and Carmen Sandiego Announced for Facebook

Oh joy of joys! There goes my productivity down the drain. Blue Fang Games has just announced two secret projects they'll be releasing on Facebook soon: Carmen Sandiego and Oregon Trail. These games are both timeless and branded so hard it's a rare occasion to meet anyone who grew up in the United States between 1971 and now that doesn't know of their existence. And you know what else? Oregon Trail is 40 this year. Fourty years of broken axels, forging rivers, and dysentery. Joy!
