Diablo 3

It's official, Blizzard has announced Diablo 3 and first impressions are rather fantastic.

Check out this video.

Now I've never been a fan of the barbarian class, but this video makes me want to give them a shot.

With Titan Quest a memory Blizzard is now free to once again begin churning their prize winning dungeon crawler and all of the fanboys rejoice. (see: Me)

According to Blizzard will be announcing a new game this week, and it seems they are putting stock into it being Diablo 3.

I'm not convinced personally, but if it is I'll be giddy. Yes that's right. Giddy, like a school girl.

Existential Mario

Nothing says "I'm a hardcore gaming nerd" like converting the seemingly meaningless romps of an angered Italian plumber into an existential view of life and love.

Thanks to this image created by an unknown artist we can now see the true meaning behind this heady classic.

We all knew Mario was looking to pass on his seed, I mean, why else would he chase after deformed, maligned turtles with no reward?

This made me happy.

Epic? Rube Goldberg? Excellent

When I think epic I think of Rube Goldberg machines... ok, well maybe not, but this recent GMod machinima rocks out some serious class when it comes to performing a simple task in the most asinine way possible and for that I salute it.

Had I known soccer was such a hardcore event with numerous rockets I would have watched it more often.

A Monday full of videos

Here's an assortment of videos I found around the web today. Loads of funny things.

What happens when girlfriends play TF2.

101 Ways to kill G-Man
. An interesting video compiled in Gary's Mod showing both a warped sense of morality and a lack of constructive venues to relinquish the maker's rage.

Spore-live, watch as one of the lucky 50 get to try out the game early.

Bioshock meets internet fangirl

In the current episode of Hey Ashly, Watcha Playing, we find the youthful Ashley ravenously consuming crowd favorite Bioshock.

She parodies the climactic scene between the main character Andrew Ryan. Oh, did I mention that the video contains spoilers.

Well the video is certainly worth a gander if for no other reason than to see her dressed up as Ryan.

Would you kindry!

Doki Doki Majo Shinpan gets a Porno Knock Off

It's a fairly common thing in Japan to see successful PG to PG-13 (and sometimes even G) rated licenses get an overhaul by less than reputable companies looking to appeal to the avid ecchi.

With that in mind it was only a matter of time before the pseudo-innocent title Doki Doki Majo Shinpan DS got a seedy remake.

This one is called Majo Michi and takes the rather tame idea of poking jiggly breasts with a DS stylus to full on groping of witch bodies followed by acts of pure depravity.

Check the following link for the exceedingly NSFW site.

Ever wonder what video game death would actually resemble if it wasn't for the cutesy look providing by the artists?

Oh that's right, being eaten by a dog is not a good thing... in fact, it's rather horrible.
