Diablo III Screenshot Reveals Wizard Magic
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment recently revealed a new screenshot and new concept art to celebrate the 975,000 Likes milestone on its official Diablo III Facebook page. The game will allow players to revisit the world of Sanctuary where they must once again take up arms against the demonic forces threatening humanity.

The following screenshot shows the male Wizard casting Wave of Force. The Wave of Force is a level 3 skill in the Arcane Tree, unlocked at Tier 2. The Wave of Force repels all nearby enemies outwards mostly as a defense mechanism. The visual effect looks like an expanding bubble that surrounds the Wizard and goes off knocking back all enemies in its perimeter.

The highlight of this screenshot in particular is that the Wizard is in mid-air, far above the ground, with the arcane bubble surrounding him. Looks like Blizzard found an interesting way to affect the skill with runestones.

EVE Online Virtual Goods Store In Development
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In a recent developer blog post CCP Games revealed upcoming plans to add a virtual store to EVE Online, its massively multiplayer space game. The new store will offer vanity items for fans interested in customizing the look of their avatars and spacecraft.

So how will it work?
There will be a store, and it will have all kinds of stuff for sale: clothes and accessories for your character, custom paint jobs or logo placement on your ships or a fishtank/stripper pole for your Captain's Quarters. You'll browse through the list of items available and, when you're ready to make a purchase, you'll use a new currency called Aurum (AUR).

Where can I get some Aurum?
Aurum is created by breaking up a PLEX. Each PLEX gives you a bunch of Aurum that you can spend in the virtual goods store. If you don't want to spend Aurum on these vanity items, you can always wait for someone else to do so and then buy it off them for ISK. Oh yeah, I should have probably mentioned that earlier. Items bought in the virtual goods store will be transferrable between characters, just like PLEX is today.

Avadon: The Black Fortress Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Rock, Paper, Shotgun has posted a new review of Spiderweb Software's latest RPG, Avadon: The Black Fortress. The first chapter of a new saga, the game puts players in the role of a spy and warrior tasked to defend the homeland from its many enemies. The game features four different character classes, dozens of sidequests, hundreds of items to discover, and many different possible endings.

The high concept of the game is that Avadon, your new employer, is the power that holds together several neighbouring countries with a careful mix of support and fear. Think of it as the UN, with the Gestapo as its intelligence division, and an approach to keeping the peace that involves burning a troublesome city to the ground and pointing out that at least the ashes aren’t going to be causing any more trouble. Your boss is a man called Redbeard, an avuncular chap who makes a point of welcoming all his new recruits with a big smile and a welcoming pat on the back… but also sets wolves on them to make sure they can handle themselves, and guarantees that anyone who tries to screw with him regrets it for a very, very, long time. There’s a man in Avadon’s dungeons who’s been alive, numbed, for decades in a stasis field, purely as a salutary example for any future assassins. He’s one of the luckier ones who survived.
Check out the full review at the site linked below.
