You asked for BlizzCon 2010 cosplay photos, so we're getting you these costume shots hot off the presses. Yes, we value the information coming from the panels or via interviews or from hands-on experiences with their upcoming mega-games...but we also know you're voracious when it comes to character pics from Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo games.

World of WarCraft: Cataclysm

If you're seeking info from the World of Warcraft "Dungeons and Raids" - BlizzCon 2010 Panel Wrap-Up, then look no further!  It's the most wonderful time of the year! BlizzCon 2010 started with a Cataclysmic bang, and I'm here to give you updates straight from the hottest Warcraft panels. The "Dungeons and Raids" World of Warcraft panel, led by Cory Stockton, the lead content designer, and Scott Mercer, the lead encounter designer, explained a lot of the new philosophies behind the latest Cataclysm dungeons, Heroic additions and raids.

With the impending Cataclysm comes a variety of new Heroic dungeons for level 85 players, but there are two specific dungeons that Blizzard has spent considerable time on, and those are the revamps of the level 20 Dungeons: Shadowfang Keep and The Deadmines. These dungeons are extremely nostalgic for Horde and Alliance players alike, and Blizzard has updated them to make them fit in with the new Cataclysm storyline, and to position the climax of their respective zones in Silverpine Forest and Westfall. These two retooled dungeons will also have Heroic modes enabled for level 85 players, and feature new bosses and challenges for players trying the dungeon out in the new mode.

Diablo 3 Details - Demon Hunter intro, New Traits and Skills, Talisman

Blizzcon 2010 kicked off with new announcement for Diablo 3, as expected, and we've got all the details on the new Demon Hunter class, the new Skill system, the revamped Runes, and brand-new Traits, and the addition of the Talisman, which will keep inventory whiners happy. And by inventory whiners, I mean myself. I got so tired of playing Tetris in my inventory and Horadric Cube in Diablo 2. What about you?

"Demon Hunter." Did any of you have that in the Diablo 3 final class bingo? I sure didn't, which is why I was caught completely off-guard by the announcement at Blizzcon this morning. Although last year we were guessing that they might introduce a ranged class, so it should be that surprising. Maybe I'm just impressed with how sexy and dark they've decided to make her. "Don't worry ladies," Blizzard assured the audience, "We're working on a male version right now and he'll be equally as attractive."

Keep reading to learn more about the Demon Hunter, and stay tuned for much more Diablo 3 news during BlizzCon.

Diablo 3 BlizzCon 2010 Screens And Artwork Are Classy

Blizzard has released a solid collection of new screenshots and artwork for one of the three pillars of BlizzCon 2010: Diablo III. There are plenty of juicy bits to savor in our galleries, including gameplay shots of the newly revealed Demon Hunter class, so I encourage to check them out.

Diablo 3 screenshots can be found here.

So? What do you think? Looking better and better, no?


Today at BlizzCon, the creative folks behind many of your favorite StarCraft II levels and maps announced a few new custom-created modes developed entirely with the game's editor. These new game modes included:

StarCraft II Custom Games -- Blizzard Offers Four New Game Modes

Left 2 Die

A clever play on Left 4 Dead, this similarly titled mode adds the one thing to StarCraft that you've no doubt always wanted: zombies. Co-op is key here as you try to survive during both day and night cycles. Destroying super zombies or infested structures will earn you Zerg Biomass which'll aid in beefing up your character's arsenal. With a full intro cinematic, this mode will feature a full-on story and four difficulty levels.

One of the many panels featured at this weekend's BlizzCon celebration -- "StarCraft II: Secrets of the Masters" -- offered up a ton of new information on the game's extensive matchmaking, ladder and league systems, as well as a number of pro tips guaranteed to improve your game. But first, some things you might not know about the StarCraft II matchmaking system…

The team at Blizzard has crafted an adaptive matchmaking mechanic to secretly run everything behind the scenes. This constantly learning, ever-adjusting system is keeping continual track of your wins and losses while judging them against the relative difficulty of the matches in which you play. Your overall value as a player isn't simply determined by your win/loss ratio, but by the system's assessment of your overall performance, meaning that a handful of wins against easier opponents or less challenging scenarios are ultimately worth less than one hard-fought victory against well-matched foes. Additionally, your performance and stats are tracked separately for each mode you play, so if you're dipping your toe in some new game mode and are being oddly matched in PvP or co-op, it's largely because the game doesn't assume your same level of skill from gametype to gametype.

Diablo 3's PVP Battle Arenas Revealed, Demon Hunter Debuts

At the opening ceremonies of BlizzCon 2010 moments ago, Chris Metzen of Blizzard dropped a big announcement: Diablo III  will feature PVP battle arenas where players can beat each other to death within the game.

Not only that, Blizz also revealed the final class in Diablo 3: The Demon Hunter.

The Demon Hunter was detailed in a short video which showed the new class weilding dual crossbows as well as a gun that fires two bombs chained together that can wrap around enemies and blow them to pieces. We like... a lot.

BlizzCon 2009

Blizzard has revealed the schedule for BlizzCon 2010, and before you ask, no, there is no “Diablo III Release Date Announcement” panel planned. Then again, Blizzard has said that this year’s con will be the biggest yet in terms of Diablo III news, so I guess anything is possible.
