Want tips from a Pro?


A friend of mine has a stream at twitch.tv for World of Warcraft. Even if you’re just a casual gamer and just want to know information about new raids or upcoming patches, this is the guy you want to talk to. His character is known as Brotatoe and he’s guild master of “GOOGLE ME.” His character is a hunter and he plays on the khadgar server; alliance side and which i’m also a part of. Our guild is in the top 10 on the server and they raid every week. Check out Brotatoe’s Stream here!

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.

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?


PC to Console…


Not too long ago, G4 had a posted some facts about an interview with the CEO of Blizzard, Mike Morhaime. Click here to read the article

 To sum it up, they talked about how well Torchlight did when it was sent over to the console. They wanted  to have the option of making the game more accessible to people. And in my opinion, that also grants them more income. Personally i believe that this game should belong to only PC.  Blizzard loves money, just look at how World of Warcraft works.There are plenty of games out there for consoles, let us PC gamers have ours. To be a PC gamers, is to be part of a dying breed. People have to spend lots of money upgrading their computers to keep up with today’s hottest games.What do you think?


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.


Auto Stats…Less Freedom?


Quite some time ago Bashiok (who is a forum admin) talked about how stat points are distributed. For the newcomers, stat points are what is used every time you gain a level to help customize your class you are playing. Back in Diablo 2, you gained so many stat points every time you leveled and you could put them in 4 different stats. Strength, Dexterity, Vitality, and Energy. When you put these points in you were basically stuck with them. Havn’t played diablo 2 for quite some time but i think they implented a 1 time stat reset. In Diablo 3, when you gain a level your stats are increased automatically. I’ve heared alot of people complaining about how that will ruin the customizability and freedom but if you really think about it, it won’t. Like Bashiok was saying if you level yourself up as say a fire sorceress and you’re near the end of the game and a melee based sorceress piece drops, you can just pick it up and go. As for the skill points, i’m going to take a wild guess and say their going to let us reset them as we need with of course paying some gold or something else to do it. What do you all think about the auto stat feature?


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.
