Soooooo... Raven is just a prettied up version of the Night Elf Warden from Warcraft 3. Huh.

Brawl Buster game looked like tons of fun. The Boxer hitting that guy and then splitting before he even hit the ground was funny. The Rocker animations I'd love to try out. Very nice and original. The football guy looked boring. All in all it looks like a very fun game, although I wish that was an Xbox game for console.

Blacklight looks like it has some potential and I heard that's FTP which makes it more enticing to me. Looks like a ton of blood in that and seeing through walls was cool.

At the very least, Brawl Busters looks more interesting and exciting than your typical MOBA (which I usually liken to watching paint dry). Worth a look.

@Apakal I'm not sure it's really a MOBA, it does seem to be match-based but I'm not sure what type of persistence or stat tracking it uses. If nothing else, it's an inventive online team deathmatch game.

@Brendan Drain

Played it a little bit. Its like a spin on Team Fortress. Its not bad. Not really great either though.

Lack of customizable controls hurts. But character customization is pretty cool. Combat is a bit lacking. I'm not going to put a whole lot of time into it. Not to much to my liking.

DOTA 2 would be the way to go if games didn't last 1 hour per match
Get with the times, icefrog.

DotA 2 looks terrible... just terrible... it's not even worth the 2. It should just be called DotA: Remastered. There is absolutely nothing new about this... it's the exact same game as before with some better graphics and it's own client... which sounds suspiciously like HoN... why would they do this? Why would they bring all the clunkiness and awkwardness of DotA, which was in place solely for the sake of it being a Warcraft 3 map into the sequel? Why not use the chance to free the game from all that rubbish that was forced on it by Warcraft 3...

I can tell you why: It's because IceFrog is terrible... All of his ideas made DotA worse over the years...

Creep denying, runes, bottles, tree eating, couriers... all those garbage ideas that made DotA into this wannabe elitist pseudo e sport... Want to know why LoL is the only one of the DotAlike MOBAs that actually had some new and improved stuff going on? because Guinsoo was always the one with the clever ideas... LoL is still an incredibly skill based game with a lot more team dynamic and tactic required... it doesn't need that clunkiness to make a game an e-sport

@eLdritchZ

100% agree. I'm still trying to grasp why someone would buy this when they could play the original for free.

Saw nothing new but graphics.

I really like the idea of the D3 inferno mode! Why couldn't Blizzard be slightly more like ArenaNet lately? Let's get some more info...

real money auction house? LOL fortunately i have a good job, but the day i start paying real money for PIXELS in a game is the day i shoot myself. go develop mmos and console games blizzard, leave my beloved pc gaming to the likes of Tripwire Interactive.

Red Orchestra 2. Learn Blizzard. I'll even buy 2 extra copies of it and gift them to my friends with the money i won't be spending on D3. f... off blizzard, hopefully we'll never cross paths again.

i've been waiting eagerly for D3 for..well, years! but after everything i've been seeing and reading i can only say one thing.. i MOST CERTAINLY will NOT be BUYING diablo 3. Don't get me wrong, i WILL PLAY IT (read into that as much as you want) but i will simply not pay to rent a product.

when i buy a game, i want to own it. do with it as i please. i have constant cable internet connection, but guess what? sometimes it goes down! really! oh..and sometimes i go on holidays, or go visit my parents.. but even that's beside the point.

i am an adult who likes to play video games, so i enjoy being treated as such. not to be played offline? well excuse me, oh wondrous giver of wisdom, i still play D2 to this day on lan, whenever me and my friends get a day off at the same time. to me, PERSONALLY, diablo is SUPPOSED to be PLAYED with 3 friends on LAN! so you can shove your sorry excuses..
