Diablo III opening cinematic released

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!

World of Warcraft introduces playable panda race – for real, this time

World of Warcraft introduces playable panda race – for real, this time

It's been several years now since Blizzard Entertainment played an April Fool's prank on its World of Warcraft base by saying the fifth race in the game would be panda-humanoid in flavor - today we find that in their newest WoW expansion, it's no joke. There's a whole new expansion for World of Warcraft coming out soon by the name of "Mists of Pandaria." This race of fuzzy lovable killers has since the first "JK" announcement made several appearances in both WoW and StarCraft II, and both story characters and a playable Monk class will be coming with this next expansion pack.

Star Wars Old Republic global support base opened in Ireland

Star Wars Old Republic global support base opened in Ireland

Of all the places in the world to open a support facility, it had to be Ireland that took on the task of providing support to masses for the new Star Wars MMORPG game The Old Republic as it ramps up for launch on December 20th and 22nd. Of course I and we have no reason to be saying such a thing, in fact such an island base will likely be the greatest place to avoid the craziest of game players that'll more than likely try to swim to the support group in hopes of getting their lightsaber license re-activated after having chopped up too many ewoks. You following me? If you are, this is definitely going to be the game for you.

Blizzard Entertainment Confirms MMO Codenamed Titan

Blizzard Entertainment Confirms MMO Codenamed Titan

That didn't take long. It was just a few days ago that the five-year plan for Blizzard Entertainment leaked out of China. If you'll recall, there was the possible plan for a new MMO title, called Titan, on that sheet. And now it looks like Blizzard Entertainment wants to go ahead and confirm that that game does, indeed, exist. The company is labeling it as their "next-gen MMO," and details about the title are pretty much non-existent at this point.

Blizzard MMO Not Likely for Xbox 360

Blizzard MMO Not Likely for Xbox 360

Blizzard is a company known for their Massively Multiplayer Online titles, with a major focus on World of Warcraft. Of course, a title like StarCraft can't be ignored, either, even if it doesn't fit into the MMO category. In any event, it doesn't look like Microsoft's Xbox 360 has much of a chance of landing an MMO of Blizzard caliber any time soon, as the company not only knows of the hardships that Microsoft puts forth to developers for access to Xbox LIVE, but they also believe that the Xbox 360 just doesn't have the power to make it happen.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 19 2010

Hooray! Mail came early today and we were given our Nook Color to grab and to open and to hold (aka unboxing and hands-on). Then we find out that the iPhone alone is worth more than almost every firm in the WORLD. Cox gives you money back for the minutes you don't use, and Google wipes away that StreetView data they were never supposed to have in the first place. Advent Vega offers up their budget Android tablet for sale and basically instantly sells out, and MySpace opens their doors to Facebook and signs the oncoming apocalypse.
