Battlefield 3 Early Access Beta Fail

Well, here we are.  Tuesday the 27th of September. EA announces that those who bought the Limited Edition of Medal of Honor or Pre-ordered Battlefield3 would be invited 48 hours earlier than the general public to the open beta.  An announcement was made stating the time when the beta would go live: 5AM pst, 8AM est, ect.  Well here I sit, almost 2 hours post-launch with no email along with approximately 90% of the PC users that pre-ordered BF3 on origin.

I am happy to say, if you picked up MoH on steam, you can log into your steam game library and get your beta code there.  I would argue EA made a big mistake choosing not to launch on steam seeing as they get beta keys up for a game they're going to make no money off before the publishers can get their heads together.

"Soon" Blizzard Delays Diablo3 Release

With the recent announcement of the Diablo3 beta, we all thought the game would be on track for a holiday 2011 release, but a current announcement has informed us of a new release window of early 2012. You can read the news on blizzards website here. On the bright side, they did announce they'd be able to add more people to the beta as time progresses seeing as it's going to go a few months longer than expected.

In related blizzard news, if you're interested in Growing an amazing beard feel free to do that in anticipation of Diablo3's release.  I haven't decided if i'm completely on beard yet but I've definitely got the manly 5oclock shadow going on atm.

Mage Tier 13

Ah to be a wow player still.  I doubt this will make me come back seeing as my max lvl mage is alliance and a gnome and I don't have any friends i still play with on that server (foreveralone), but thats not the reason for this post.  The reasoning behind it is, blizzard forgot a major piece of Timelord gear in their T13 timelord regalia. A fez. or a Stetson, or a sonic screwdriver.  Yup, I watch doctor who, so enjoy this new render of the Tier13 mage armor aka "Timelord Regalia" aka terribad because it doesn't include a fez.  I'll be in my Tardis(it actually belongs to my dog but he won't mind).

Firefall Beta starts

Well, they said it would happen soon after PAX, and here it is.  The Firefall Beta has begun, unfortunately it's a close beta and if you weren't signed up and participating in their forums it's unlikely you got in.  I know I didn't get in and I'm a little bummed about that but their gameplay video will have to suffice. 

Go ahead and sign up for yourself here if you'd like a shot at future invites.

Enjoy this video from Red 5 Studios

Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer Premiere

It would appear the most recent update released by MW3 is their new additions to multilayer.  I see a few new toys, some new kill streaks that look interesting, a new turret type device, even some new armor and masks similar to those in the game Army of Two(no comment). I'm still in the BF3 corner, but we'll see if this game pulls out anything truly innovative and exciting before it's release, but i somewhat doubt it.

Diablo 3 Beta leak

Here's a video to tide your appetite for awesomeness, but the folks over at Diablofans.com have updated their news feed with a great video of the character creation screen and some in game screenshots of what looks to be the early game.  I'm more and more pumped with every new bit of info we gather about this game.  Beta is getting closer and closer.  As I said before, there was confirmation that it will be up and running before the end of September unless anything drastic changes that, I'd say we're looking at an early 2012 release so Activision/Blizzard can push this as one of the best selling games of the apocalypse ...did i just say that?
