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!

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.


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: 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. 


Diablo 3 Class: Witch Doctor


One of the next classes announced was the Witch Doctor. This old geezer specializes using evil minions to tear apart his victims and curses and poisons to torture them in the process. This guy is pretty much like a necromancer.. on steriods. The Witch Doctor can steal souls from his victims and use them against his enemies as a force to be reckoned with.
