    Mega Bloks passport preview showcases toys I need

    Today we received an email sending us to the Mega Bloks preview site. You might remember that at BlizzCon last year we talked about these awesome MegaBloks that were World of Warcraft themed. We saw them in person at BlizzCon and now they have revealed even more details on their passport site. There is a Faction Pack that will average 25 pieces. They look great! Although I do hope they have female versions, none are shown in the prototypes. The collectible mounts are great. I love the Swift Gryphon one. There will be Deathwing’s Stormwind assault which will include a Deathwing and Stormwind. These sets are anything but small. The Sindragosa and the Lich King set are 150 pieces. The Demolisher Attack is 299 pieces and the Goblin Zeppelin is 310 pieces. There are still unannounced products and exclusives still to be announced. Hopefully that includes female characters.

    First Look – World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

    Yesterday I had the chance to get hands on with World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria and played a Pandaren Monk. The announcement of the the expansion was not surprising to me, but I was not expecting a new class this expansion as well. The buzz around the convention has been mixed with regards to this expansion, but I have to say that so far I’m not worried at all for what is coming. The thing to remember is that what is on display now gameplay wise can very well change come the final release. This was seen with Wrath as well as Cataclysm. I feel that Blizzard has a good base started for what’s to come. You start off in the starting zone and move through quests that follow a very martial arts feel to them. You have to fight training dummies, apprentices, and then a master before being

    New World of Warcraft Talent Trees Details

    Yes, talent trees will be getting a new revamp coming in the next expansion that players are already calling MoP. The changes were made in order to help make it easier when building your class and enabling players to make more hybrid builds again. You will be able to choose your primary focus for your spec (for example: Arcane for a mage) and then every few levels you will be able to choose a new talent in any of the specs that you feel would be best for you. Now this was definitely some information overload, but thanks to our partners over at GKick, they put together a detailed list with screencaps of each of the new trees. You can read up in detail over here on Gkick.net! Gkick.net is part of the Gaming Angels network and have been helping with our coverage of Blizzcon 2011.

    Limited Edition and New Trailer for Diablo III debuts

    This morning we had a couple of Diablo III updates, unfortunately no date besides “when it’s ready.” But we did get some details regarding the Limited Edition that will be released. Like the Limited Editions for Cataclysm as well as StarCraft, Diablo III will have one heck of a nice package. There will be in-game items for SC2 and WoW, a behind the scenes disk, Diablo 2 on a USB that is stored in a replica of Diablo’s skull and plenty of other things. The other tidbit we got was an awesome new trailer for Diablo III. Blizzard’s cinematics department knocked it out of the park again on this and it was fantasitc. Now there was no new information regarding gameplay, and Blizzard is keeping it on strict lockdown since they’re trying to keep any spoilers away from the public. It honestly makes it more maddening, but it means I’ll

    Today at Blizzcon there has been more news and information regarding the next expansion Heart of the Swarm. Now, sadly this information doesn’t include a release date, but there is still some exciting stuff. Heart of the Swarm will be picking up where Wings of Liberty left off. As expected, you will play as Kerrigan, and similarly from Wings of Liberty, as you progress through the game Kerrigan will grow in strength and earn new abilities, and players will choose which powers to enhance and use from mission to mission. The game will have 20 new campaign missions, new gameplay mechanics and even some new multiplayer units! In-game and pre-rendered cinematics will make a return this time as well. There will also be some new Battle.net features which will help with custom-game searching as well as new tools for map authors. There are new things to play here at Blizzcon
