I can’t say enough about

Insider: Do you think we’ll ever see a full-length theatrical movie from Blizzard Cinematics?

Nick Carpenter: If you look at the way Blizzard’s cinematics have evolved over the years, it’s a good guess that we’re likely headed in that direction. We get this question a lot, and it’s too early to tip our hands on anything specific, but, for now, I can say that we definitely hear you.

Insider: Thanks for your time. Is there anything else you’d like to share before you go?

Nick Carpenter/Chris Thunig: I just want to thank everyone involved! Diablo III was one of our biggest challenges yet. It was a labor of love and we can’t wait for everyone to see the story unfold in the final game.

 

Diablo III to Release May 15th, Digital Pre-Order & Download Now Available
One decade-long wait is finally over as another much shorter one begins, gamers all over the world will be counting down the hours until May 15th, the day Diablo III is released. We predicted last week that Monday, March 12th made the most sense for a release date announcement given Blizzard’s track record of release date announcements on Mondays, but it appears they’ve decided to curb that habit.

There are 3 ways to pre-order the game; you can do so on your Battle.net Account Page, through any major third party retailer or if you currently have a World of Warcraft Annual Pass (or plan on purchasing one) you’ll get the digital copy of the standard edition as a bonus.

The War Z is under heavy fire from consumers on Valve’s Steam gaming platform. According to a report on Develop-Online, players are alleging that the game has been released missing key features advertised on the Steam page and that it is in more of an ‘alpha stage’. In response, Executive Producer Sergey Titov has taken to the Steam forums and altered the game’s description on Steam.
“We’ve taken steps to correct this and format information presented on our Steam Store page in a way so it provides more clear information about game features that are present in the Foundation Release and what to expect in the coming weeks,” said Titov.

“We also want to extend our apologies to all players who misread information about game features.”

Ankama Games’ DOFUS has been one of those games that has quietly met with success over the years of its life, even spawning WAKFU recently. We take a look at DOFUS and see how it measures up in our latest review. Read on! Played DOFUS? Let us know what -you- think in the comments.

 

I can’t say enough about how impressive and charming are Dofus’ visuals.  The game sports cute, colorful character models and environments that manage to be reminiscent of fantasy anime archetypes while still presenting a unique and distinct style.  I tend to be pretty glowy over Ankama Games’ art styles across their various media, and while I know that the anime-inspired graphics aren’t quite everyone’s cup of tea, there can be no doubt that the attention to detail and lovingly crafted environments in Dofus are delightful.  The game’s sounds and music are likewise nice, although there isn’t any voice acting or range of crazy sound effects outside of the clamor of battle.  Dofus’ music is just as charming as its visuals, and can be sometimes wistful, other times rousing, although the game could use a bit more variety here.
