19 Minutes (!) of Diablo III Gameplay

You'd think 19 minutes of a trailer would get boring, but in this case, it doesn't!  Gamevideos.com provides a copy of this video, featuring a guided tour of gameplay (taken from the Blizzard site, which is understandably a bit hammered at the moment).  Our initial impression?  HOLY CRAP!  Catch the video, and our more detailed impressions of it, after the break.  I'll be right back, I have to go change shorts.

Diablo III Officially Announced - "Primarily Cooperative"

Judging by the popularity of our Co-Op Classics story on Diablo, people really like the series.  It's successor was even more popular and continues to played today by many.  Eight years after Diablo 2 was released Blizzard has finally announced Diablo 3!   For an entire week the Blizzard website teased us with something, and many thought it was actually a World of Warcraft Expansion - but alas the great demon is born again!

Denis Dyack Calls out Forum over Too Human

Denis Dyack (pictured above) has called out popular internet forum NeoGaf.  Apparently "the Gaf" has plenty of doubters of Too Human, so Dyack threw down the proverbial gauntlet.  His decree?  If you're confident the game will be a letdown, state your belief unequivocally in the thread. If, after finally playing it, you turn out to be right, Dyack has agreed to accept the forum tag "Owned by the GAF." If the haters are wrong they will have to accept the tag "Owned by Too Human."

Lord of the Rings: Conquest Trailer is Spiffy

Actually, spiffy may not be the right word.  You can check the trailer for Lord of the Rings: Conquest out for yourself here, and choose your own word to describe it.  The fact that four players can play through the campaign cooperatively via split-screen or online had us watching the title closely.  Given the fact that you can also play through as the bad guys?  That just puts it over the top.  Maiming hairy footed halflings with a buddy for an evening sounds like fun to me.  Hobbits, you are going down!
