Recent Rumors: Possible Spoiler


Was reading through the forums and some people were talking about the storyline. I read somewhere that after Baal was killed and his spirit left his body that it supposidly possessed Tyrael. After he destroyed the Worldstone Keep, he went missing and hasn’t been seen since. And then they talk about him destroying the heavens or something. I’ m not that savy when it comes to the lore but does anyone know anything about this?

Monthly Subscriptions?


   Many of today’s games usually come at a hefty price. If you were to play a game through Xbox Live, you would have to have a subscription with them. Plus you have to pay for the game which usually runs about 60 bucks and additional content that will probably be released over the course of the next couple of months. It can actually get pretty expensive.Same thing goes for playing PC games. You buy the game which might require some subscriptions as well. Many people don’t like the fact of havin to buy additional stuff just to play a game they have already payed for. On the other side, you can argue that it’s good to have a pay to play feature. Xbox live needs money to help keep their business and servers up. Same thing can be said for an online game on the computer. Role playing games usually have servers in which large numbers of people can pay on all at once. To have these servers up 24/7 cost a grest deal of money. That’s just one thing that costs them money. Some people think with all the money they make from selling the game and such, they should have more than enough to allow online for free. What do you all think about companies that have games that have been round for a while like Blizzard. Should companies make you pay to play? If so, should the cost be reduced? The average online MMORPG costs about 12-15 bucks a month.

What DarkSporeBlog will be about


Before Darkspore comes out, i wanted to let everyone to know what it’s going to be about. If you managd to stumble upon my… i mean that youtube channel you will notice a few character editing videos along with some gameplay and cutscene videos. When it officially comes out i will probably be making a few montages, reviews, and maybe some tutorial as well.


Games to play while waiting for Diablo 3


A while back i talked about how Torchlight did well when it went to console here. Torchlight is almost exactly like Diablo 3 except for it doesn’t have multiplayer. Although, when Torchlight 2 comes out there will be. It’s made by some of the old developers from Blizzard North. There are a million items you can gather and you can explore countless numbers of dungeons.  Darkspore is another MMORPG that i would highly recommend. If you have ever played the game Spore, think of how you can make monsters and throw in a little hack and slash and that’s Darkspore. Darkspore comes out the 26th of April and i will be trying to make a blog about it here. Obviously if you click on it its going to take you to a BLAH page. I’ll update it as soon as it comes out. I have tons of beta footage recorded and i didn’t want to get in trouble showing it. But there’s a youtube channel that coincidently has my webpage as a username. You can check that out here 😉


Most Anticipated Game of The Year?


Along with Diablo 3 being  in development for several years. There has been a rumor going around the web that Blizzard plans on releasing the game towards the end of the year. If this is true would you say that this could be the most anticipated game of the year? If not, then what game do you think would be considered that?


My most memorable moment in gaming


Just off the top of my head, one of my most memorable moments come from a game called Runescape. Back in the day when i first started out, pvp was very popular. What you basically did was strap on some crappy armor and weps and went out hoping to find someone either lower level than you or wearing armor worse than you. Me and 2 of my friends went out in a place the game calls “The Wilderness.” As we came near the end of the road, we saw someone. As soon as we caught up to him we realized we had ran into a huge clan. Since I always stuck in the back (because I’m a coward) I took off. My other 2 friends didn’t stand a chance. I managed to make it out of there alive. So that’s my most memorable moment, aside from making me look like a total coward. What’s yours?


The Interview


Since I’m require to have a interview pertaining to the site. I picked a fellow gamer of mine to ask a few questions about diablo 3. Enjoy!

Also, this video isn’t of best editing. I hate macs and i suck using them.


Diablo 3 Class: Demon Hunter


The final class announced was the Demon Hunter. We’ll call it DH for short. The DH can easily be compared to world of warcraft’s hunter mixed with a rouge, but darker and more twisted. Their able to use archery attacks at a distance and then utilize close range attacks quick and accurately. The Diablo 3 site has a better explanation and you can view some of their attacks on there. But in this case, here’s some gameplay footage.


Diablo 3 Class: Monk


Next on the list is the monk. They specialize in the art fighting. Think of Chuck Norris, only bald and less fearful.


Diablo 3 Class: Wizard


If you’ve ever played diablo, you’d know that this class would never miss a sequal. Using magic, the wizard obliterates his enemies using the forces of nature we’ve come to know so well.  Wizards don’t rely on heavy armor to protect them. They can use their magic to shield and aid them. Want proof? Check it out.
