WOW Cataclysm

Blizzard Entertainment announced the next World Of Warcraft expansion pack. Here is the press release: IRVINE, Calif., Jun 30, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Blizzard Entertainment announced today that the closed beta test for Cataclysm(TM), its highly anticipated new expansion for World of Warcraft(R), has begun. The company has started issuing invitations to participate in the testing process to a wide range of players from around the world who signed up via their accounts. While enjoying an early look at the game, beta testers will provide valuable feedback to help Blizzard Entertainment find bugs, address balance issues, and polish the new content.

"Our focus with Cataclysm has been to build on the knowledge we've gained through the previous expansions to deliver the best, most compelling World of Warcraft content for our players to date," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "Gathering focused feedback during the beta test will go a long way in helping us reach that goal when we launch Cataclysm later this year."

Cataclysm is the third expansion for World of Warcraft, the most popular subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game in the world. The first two expansions, The Burning Crusade(R) and Wrath of the Lich King(R), each shattered PC game sales records upon their release. In Cataclysm, the face of Azeroth will be forever altered by the return of the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing. Players will explore once-familiar areas of the world that have now been reshaped by the devastation and filled with new adventures. In an effort to survive the planet-shattering cataclysm, two new playable races -- worgen and goblins -- will join the struggle between the Alliance and the Horde. As players journey to the new level cap of 85, they'll discover newly revealed locations, acquire new levels of power, and come face to face with Deathwing in a battle to determine the fate of the world.


The Elder Scrolls V: Alinor Release Date?

Written by igcompany on Thursday, 01 July 2010 19:43.

People are gone crazy and they all are looking for news about the upcoming Elder Scrolls game. I'm writing this article to calm all of you down.

There are a lot of posts over the internet that Bethesda Softworks announced The Elder Scrolls V: Alinor. As seen in this article: in that press comunicate they announced Fallout 4 as well. Fallout 4? We can consider New Vegas as 4 so can we expect for Elder Scrolls V: Alinor to be released and officialy announced? We'll see. But hey! If there wasn't a little true in this story it would be published on the internet on so many websites?

At E3 Bethesda didn't say nothing about the following Alinor so that makes me think if the roumor is true that they maybe are preparing for something big or the project is still in beta stage and it may take another couple of years till the game will be released. Anyways if you ask me i don't think Bethesda would miss the chance to earn money again from Elder Scrolls.

If it wasn't true they would probably didn't announce that Armor Games will produce the elder scrolls V. They just don't afford to do this at this level.

PS: Don't think that the guys from Armor Games don't know how to produce PC games as well.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit: The Next NFS Officially Announced

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit

EA announced at the E3 press conferece that the next NFS will be called Hot Pursuit (i don't know why i'm having this deja-vu feeling, oh yeah because NFS3 WAS CALLED JUST LIKE THAT!).

Dispite the name of the next NFS EA keeps attracting us with some new screenshots and some video trailers. Let's hope it will be a good game. I didn't played the last one (NFS Shift) but i played NFS Undercover wich was pretty dissapointing. Bad graphics and poor gameplay.

But hey! If it's Hot Pursuit and it's Lamborghini Murcielago Police(like it was in NFS Most Wanted) and the name suggest that it would be something like Most Wanted maybe it will be a good game. I think EA finaly realised that games where you are chasing or are being chased, sells better.

NFS Hot Pursuit will be released in November 2010.

Before i end this article i let you a trailer to make you a final opinion about the upcoming NFS game:

(Yes it's Marilyn Manson music :) )
