Diablo III gets pre-release tweaks, producer change

Diablo III gets pre-release tweaks, producer change

In the world of MMORPGs, there can be no denying that the leaders in the art are currently housed at Blizzard Entertainment, and their next release, Diablo III is being set up as one of their biggest releases in the history of the environment. But when we can no longer count the amount of setbacks this game has had before it launches on fingers and toes, it's time to start doubting in the integrity of the creators. That said, one of the creators of the game, the lead producer in fact, has declared that he'll be leaving Blizzard and the D3 project after having worked on it for 5 years.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus in-store packaging appears

Verizon Galaxy Nexus in-store packaging appears

At this point we've got to assume that the folks at Verizon had all of this leak and pre-release panic planned for the Galaxy Nexus, because what we've been experiencing since the release of the international edition of this world's first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device is nothing but heartbreak and agony over the release date for the Verizon version here in the USA - that said, here's the in-store packaging. In what appears very much to replicate the packaging of the Nexus S, the hero device for Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Verizon's package has padding inside the top of the box, a simple cradle of red for the device, and all the regular bits underneath. Could this be the sign we've been waiting for?

What we're hearing is that there's this fellow by the name of Mike Peak who has been the only person in the world who's been able to contact Verizon and get a solid date out of them as far as when the magical Ice Cream Sandwich device will be available for purchase complete with LTE connectivity. The date is tomorrow, says the supposed Verizon customer assistant on the other end of the phone, and the event is a start for pre-release orders.

Swivl motion-tracking mobile video device gets official

Swivl motion-tracking mobile video device gets official

What you're about to see is a device by the name of Swivl that does two things: first, it holds your smartphone or small video camera - two, it stands in place and turns its head back and forth, up and down, all depending on where you are with the sensor it's trained to follow. Not only this, but you can take awesome comfort in knowing that this device is crowdfunded, meaning it was not one investor, but large handful of persons from the public sector that decided the design should become a reality. It's every industrial designer's dream!

Star Wars The Old Republic now set for global simultaneous launch

Star Wars The Old Republic now set for global simultaneous launch

It's time for the newest and hopefully last date change for the release of the Star Wars MMORPG - The Old Republic. This is a game that, for the lay person, will be comparable to World of Warcraft in its scope, allowing players to create their own character with whom they'll be able to experience the entire Star Wars universe as it unfolds before them. Have battles, accomplish missions, swing some lightsabers around, the whole shebang. The newest word on this upcoming game is that there will be a global launch - with North America and the European territories on the list thus far and no sign of greater Asia - on December 20th, 2011.

After much buildup including FOUR feature-length individual movies for each of the heroes included in this supergroup of a movie, May 2012's Marvel Comics' The Avengers has its first real trailer.
