Review: Diablo III

Preview: World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria
by Jonathan Ross

It's been out for a little over seven years now, but World of Warcraft is still going strong. Last week I was invited over to Blizzard to take a look at Warcraft's upcoming expansion, Mists of Pandaria, and I was able to get some playtime with the game and speak to some of the members of the development team about what's in store when Mists of Pandaria is released later this year.

Guild Wars 2 beta sign-ups are live photo
Guild Wars 2 beta sign-ups are live
by Jonathan Ross

Hot on the heels of last weekend's closed press beta, ArenaNet is now taking applications for all future Guild Wars 2 beta events. Sign-ups will only be open for the next 48 hours, so if you're interested, you should put your name in the running immediately.

All you need to do is head to this website, submit your contact information and your DxDiag file, and you're registered for future beta events. There's no guarantee you'll get in, and specific dates for future betas haven't been announced yet, but if you're at all interested in Guild Wars 2 I strongly suggest you sign up.

Guild Wars 2 isn't like any MMO you've played before photo
Guild Wars 2 isn't like any MMO you've played before
by Jonathan Ross

This weekend, ArenaNet gave select members of the press a chance to see the current beta of Guild Wars 2. We had the opportunity to create Human, Charr, and Norn characters of any class, and play through each race's level 1-30 zones. Additionally, we had access to the Ascalon Catacombs, a level-30 dungeon, as well as the opportunity to play on all of the Player vs. Player battlegrounds and try out the World vs. World vs. World PvP.

I could use this preview to go into detail on the various systems (how combat works, what the classes are like, character creation, etc.), but you can find accurate information on most of those topics on ArenaNet's website. What I found most fascinating about my time with Guild Wars 2 is how different it feels from any other MMO I've played before, while still keeping most of the elements of the genre intact.
