We spent our time with the Diablo III Beta which was informative to say the least. We loved how classically old school it was while retaining a new look and visual feel. It’s a pretty game with a lot going for it, especially it’s multiplayer content. Now Blizzard has launched a new TV trailer where they smartly punctuate that it’s for both PC and MAC. Basically any computer in the world is going to be able to play this game. I’ve even seen the beta run on a Mac Book Air. That’s saying a lot. Watch the gorgeous trailer below.
Want to watch a hell of a lot of Dota 2 gameplay in crisp 1080p HD? Then you’re in luck, cause that’s exactly what this is. As of right now there are two matches available to watch, and each one is close to 50 minutes long. Additional matches will be added in the near future, so if you want to see even more of this game in action, keep checking back. For the full schedule of games (and live streaming in much lower quality) visit Dota2.com.

Getting our first look at any Valve game is exciting and Dota 2’s trailer for Gamescom is no exception. We love the look, the characters, the animation and is Matt just said on aim to me it “looks cool in typical Valve fashion.” Truer words were never spoken. Dota 2 will hit Mac and PC in the future over Steam of course.
During Gamescom there is a 16 team tournament featuring the best DOTA players around the world and they’re competing for 1 MILLION US DOLLARS! (Which may not be worth that much right now… fucking AA+ rating…) You’ll be able to watch the tournament live and we’ll have more info about that soon.
CVG recently spoke with Joe Bentley, the VP of Engineering at OnLive and discussed the possibility of OnLive coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 as an integrated service. His response is interesting:
“Absolutely, they would make great consoles. Our controller is a hybrid between a PS3 controller and an Xbox controller. It’s all compatible, it would just work. There are OnLive guys chatting [Sony and MS], but we’ll see where it goes. But it would absolutely work, we’re ready to work with everybody.”
This is incredibly telling about the state of OnLive. Willingly admitting to being open to exist on other platforms isn’t so much a strategy to get OnLive in every home as it is a strategy to help fund the service in the future. Keep reading to see what I mean.
For whatever reason, the folks over at Minecraft thought they should try to be funny when showing off their new map feature. Yeah the trailer gives you all the information needed, including how to make a map and how it works… but wow was it ever unfunny. What do you think?
Torchlight is one of those games that manages to deliver on almost every aspect of what I want from an western style RPG. It’s loaded with baddies, loot drops, weapons, spells, upgrades, and charm… it’s nearly perfect… now if only it had a story that was worth a damn. Torchlight stars with you picking one of three character classes; the sword swinging barbarian guy, the gun toting hottie chick or the spindly wizard dude with goggles. Each has their different perks and abilities and you’ll really want to test out which fits your play style more. After you choose your character you choose one of three pets; a dog, a cat or a lizard thing. It doesn’t really matter which you pick, they’re all capable of the same things. As soon as you’re done with that you’re thrust right into the middle of an adventure in the small town of Torchlight where two warriors are fighting off some monsters outside of a mine shaft. Follow them in and you’ll soon find yourself in one is one of the most perfect dungeon crawlers ever developed.
