The Witchdoctor looks awesome. I hope they include the Druid, because he was probably my favorite from Diablo. I saw from the videos that you can select gender now, which is cool. The destructible environment addition looks really cool, and the bosses look pretty huge and devastating. The one thing which I'm a little skeptical about is how vibrant the colors are. It just looks a little weird to me, because in the other games I remember the colors being a lot more muted and less saturated, so it gives a less ominous and mysterious feeling. Other than that, I can't wait to see what classes, armor, features, etc. they are coming up with.

sc4 looks good. i think the star wars thing is a little hokey. like vader's on ps3 & yoda's on 360? really, the only people that i'd think would be interested in that would be the ones that would like them to fight each other. and you can't even do that (unless maybe they're hidden on each version later on).

and i don't know what to think about the new characters designed by anime creators. like the one designed by the sgt frog creator looks pretty stupid. the one by the gantz guy looks alright but it just seems like taki with longer blades.

oh, yeah. and did you know there's a new one-hit kill system? let's say you keep attacking & the opponent blocks. you each have meters that start green. if you hit & they block? it turns blue. if they keep blocking, theirs turns red, & gradually, apparently they lose armor off the character. when one's pure blue & one's pure red, there's some little universal command (or hell maybe it's just any old hit) & it initiates a cut screen where there's a one hit kill. i think it makes sense for the type of game it is. i mean the fact that astaroth had a move that buries an axe in someone face & only did like 25% damage was a little silly. but lord knows how cheap people are about shit. apparently there's going to have to be a lot more focus on parrying & guard impacting to keep that sorta shit from happening.

The parallel platform thing sucks! I've been keeping up with it on G4ondemand but
everytime they show one of them they're fighting the other, but if that is the case i hope
the PS3 has Vader

yeah i think it was a developer cut scene or something, as i heard they were split like sc2 was with the platforms. but like i said... maybe they're like a hidden character later on or something. still though, i'm kinda in the school of thought that when i play soul cailbur, i wanna play soul calibur, not tera kasi or whatever the hell that really horrendous star wars fighting game was called haha. that having been said, between street fighter 4, sc4, tekken 6, & little big planet (of all things) i'm considering picking up a ps3 eventually (after a new desktop & nice screen to play it on haha). i know mamoru was looking to get some online play going when he gets his. you in jaws?

Oh yeah, the PS is acually the next thing on my get-list since i have less than lawdable ways of getting my hands on one i'm only paying $175 so i'll have enough left over for SC4 and Tekken 6 (you stole my heart when mentioning that game, i have dreams where i wake up crying out for tekken 6 (i do))
all tha to say count me in!!!

It's just a teaser site for "CTDS" and since it's from Square and has clocks all over the place, I'm assuming it means either Chrono Trigger is getting a port on the DS or that Square is finally taking a break from Final Fantasy to do another Chrono game.

It's a Chrono Trigger port to DS... which is great, 'cause I still haven't played that one yet.  New dungeon too!

I found this amusing. For those that are familiar with Diablo, some fans have been bitching and moaning about the look of Diablo III. So one of Blizzard's designers took the time to critique the fan altered screenshots

I've written two school papers in recent months on energy efficiency/energy conservation and with the heightened awareness of fuel prices and consumption... found this really interesting today:

It's a quick look at the how, why, and where fuel prices are going, and what we can do about it.

Drive a little slower, be much more gentle with acceleration, take every opportunity to coast (with the engine on and no throttle input at speed, modern cars will shut off the fuel injectors). All of these driving habits can aid in eeking out more from that (expensive) tank of gas

My goodness, common sense at work!
