Gaming News: Demon Hunter class for Diablo III

leave a comment »

..and that’s her, the Demon Hunter. A screenie taken from the Demon Hunter trailer found here.

I read all about the news from Kotaku and watching the vid, it looks like it’ll replace both Ranger and Assassin classes. Dual-Crossbow wield? Check. Traps and Bolas? Check. Can you say bad-ass? Definitely!

I haven’t really read much of the updates from Diablo III but that doesn’t mean that I don’t care about it. Like all fans, I’m eagerly awaiting its release. Blizzard is doing well giving the fans updates on the development.

Being a Diablo player, I mostly used the Druid class and when I did use the Assassin, I didn’t use much of her trapping skills. So I’m not sure if I’ll be also using the Demon Hunters’. Still, it’s too early to say what it can and cannot do. But watching the early gameplay, I cannot help but get goosebumps.

Blizzard is doing quite well in keeping its loyal fans and followers excited and satisfied.

Gaming News: DOTA 2, Torchlight II!

leave a comment »

I almost play videogames 24/7 [working for a Game company helps LOL] and I was excited about the game news I came across yesterday.

Torchlight II

Website: CLICK ME 8D

^Sneak Preview

~ I’ve played Torchlight since last year and I’m still playing it and enjoying the experience. I came across this game while reading up on Diablo III news. After seeing a few screenies, I decided to give it a try and BAM! Instant game addiction. It helps that they allow modding, from the levels, items, pets, characters and character classes to make the game more fun and replayable.

For me it was Diablo III for kids, as it was the same dungeon crawling experience but on the lighter side. But it lacked Multiplayer, whcih was the only downside of the game…until now. Seeing the Torchlight II site/news/video made me anticipate the game so much now as it proves to be epic.

Just by reading the new features, you can tell alot of people will be pre-ordering this one and/or getting it on its release day. I know I will.

DOTA 2

~ I love playing Warcraft games and especially the DOTA [Defense of the Ancients] mod. I did hear about the news that they’re going to make an official DOTA game with the help of IceFrog [which I think they employed] but this was a big surprise for me when my officemate showed these pics yesterday.

My jaw dropped. These teaser pics were gorgeous! The character designs are such detailed. They’re trying to make DOTA into a game on its own, separate from its WarCraft roots. But it seems that VALVE is now handling the game which is another surprise. We then joked around on the idea of Gordon Freeman, HeadCrabs, GlaDos and even a chocolate cake being integrated into the game. Still, it’s making us DOTA players yearning for it more. If these pictures blew us away, what else would a teaser vid would do?

NBA: Jason Richardson [Cha Bobcats] gets traded for Raja Bell and Boris Diaw [Phx Suns]..

with 2 comments

Basketball News!

So, let’s get sporty on this entry!

Charlotte Bobcats and Phoenix Suns do some shuffling…Jason Richardson for Raja Bell and Boris Diaw [well, there were othere players involved but these were the main men]…

Along with the recent moves and trades [AI going to Mo’Town, the Knicks clearing house], this is prolly more surprising…even though I’m not that active in sports anymore, I still enjoy a few hoops or two…and I frequent the NBA page on Yahoo! for boxscores and news…and that’s where I got this one…

Personally, I don’t get this trade…Charlotte loses it’s main gun for two players who have shown brilliance at times, Bell has been Mr. Defense and Mr. Reliable [of sorts] while Diaw stiil has the “flair” of his first break-out  season in Phoenix…Phoenix gets another outside and inside option with J-Rich but at what cost?

First, Charlotte…they have alot of players that can give instant offense…unfortunately, Adam Morrison and Matt Carroll haven’t delivered yet but had there moments so far and will prolly have more opportunities with J-rich around…Rook DJ Augustin is an offensive brightspot, Gerald Wallace can light it up..but other than them..Meh…

The addition of Bell and Diaw can give more depth, defense and a bit of offense [Bell’s 46.8% from beyond the arc, Diaw’s sudden offense spurts and playmaking] the ‘Cats need…at least, that’s what I think…

Moving on to Phoenix…is it me or are they keen on getting veteran players only? [Hill, O’neal, Barnes..now J-rich]…anyhoo, getting rid of the two players that helped them reach the playoffs the past years is something I don’t get..I mean, no offense to J-Rich but they already had chemistry…I guess it’s time for the Suns to re-vamp and stuff, and I guess that nothing shall get in the way of change…

Phoenix will still have the luxury of alot of offensive weapons…and their bench is pretty much ok [Barbosa, Hill/Barnes] but can they sustain the whole roster throughout the rest of the season? All of the Suns stars are prone to DNP’s and the bite of the Injury Bug…they will sorely miss B and D, who were the most sturdy of the team [Bell played 75games, Diaw had 82 last year]…surprisingly, J-Rich had a good season last year [82 games played, 40% on 3’s] and here’s hoping it’ll continue on…

Hopefully, the trades will benefit both teams as both seem satisfied…it’s just another wait and see experiment I guess…
