In what appears to be an attempt to (possibly) minimise FUD, this GameTab article points out that Vivendi (aka Blizzard) are purchasing a significant amount of ActiVision and will be merging with them creating the company name Blizzard Activision (for corporate brnding only).

I for one, welcome the new Blizzard Activision overlords... Well no. I don't :P

I foresee another EA simile, that is going to drive developers away from quality game development and instead towards a kind-of "sweat shop" like setup.

But I could be wrong. I can only hope that they don't become an "EA-like" managed company, although it would be nice to a Diablo-based MMORPG in the near future :)

Wrath of the Lich King Revealed

I really shouldn't but I'm stealing bandwith (78Mb total) to download the trailer for this from 3dgamers :P

The whole destructible buildings concept seems unneeded but hey lets try make another red faction-like game of which these features will probably only be available in instances...

Seems pretty uninteresting but (apart from what I wrote above) I will try to withhold judgement until it comes out as I will inevitably buy^H^H^H pre-order it.

Not only but also, seems like the official wow community site has suffered a slashdot-like effect soon after the anouncement :P

I keep getting "404 Not Found" error every time I try to download it from there:

WoW Armory Goodness

Well not only have I almost hit level 58, but a friend of mind told me about the awesome but very slllllllllllooooowwwwwww WoW Armory. now I can find some decent weapons and redo my talent spec (Enhancement) all from the official WoW community site :)

I must say that Blizzard must be listening to their customers because this is a such a useful tool that should have been implemented a long time ago.

Apart from WoW I am also considering purchasing an xbox360 but an American (US) one is appealing to me more and more...

I leave you with a list of upcoming games that I think make it worthwhile to buy an xbox360:

  1. Soul Calibur 4
  2. Fallout 3
  3. Resident Evil 5
  4. Fable 2
  5. Halo 3
  6. XBLA Games
  7. And many, many more... :P

ZOMG SoulCailbur4!!!111!!1

This is probably old news already but I like to post stuff that I find anyways :P
As noted on gametab, Soul Calibur 4 is comming!

I'm a bit sceptical about the Wii spin-off: "Soul Calibur: Legends" but, as a fan of the series I will probably end up buying it anyway :P

If it comes out on the XBOX360, then that will be my ultimate buying decicion for buying the aforementioned console!

I just hope that it's not a Playstation 3 exclusive like Soul Calibur 3 was...

No XBOX360 Elite for Aus?

I have been speaking to my nutter gaming mates about the possibility of a (black) XBOX360 Elite for Australia, however they say that it's an unlikely thing. EB Games (should be burned down and the company dissolved) have said that there will be a limited run and they also state that it will come will all the normal elite goodness but will also have an inbuilt HD DVD dive.

Are EB telling the truth? or do I just prey that they do come out. Perhaps I should talk the friendly and knowledgeable people at Games Traders to verify whats happening with this awesome sounding console.

I really want to start playing Guitar Hero II but mostly I can't wait to get Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80's!

EzyDVD starts EzyGames

Through the regular spam^H^H^H^H email that they send me each month, I just discovered today that the DVD franchise known as EzyDVD now has en eStore for video games as well!

Unlike Games Warehouse, EzyGames - like EzyDVD - will ship within Australia for free!!!

Now I am wondering if I should write to Games Warehouse and see if they will compete by offering the same shipping...

My absolutely fastastically awesome friend, managed to get me the long awaited and missing part of my (Acclaim) Burnout/Burnout 2 set!!!

Now I own every English copy of Burnout and Burnout 2 that was ever released!!!

Now I have to consider whether it's worth extending my set to allow for the newer (EA based) Burnout titles such as Burnout 3, Burnout Revenge, Burnout Dominator and (eventually) Burnout 5....
