WOW 2 Person Mounts Released

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

WOW 2 Person Mounts ReleasedWorld of Warcraft has just released a brand new 2 person mount in the game however there is a catch to obtaining one.

The only way you can get one is through blizzards refer a friend program. If you have someone that purchases the full game and stays with it for 2 months then you get a mount. That means basically someone has to spend 60 bucks in order for you to get this mount.

The big question is how many wow fanatics are going to actually just create a secondary account just to obtain their own 2 person mount. I’m pretty sure blizzard is going to make a few million this next month on just the refer a friend program alone.

SC2 Betas Free With Gamestop Preorders

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

SC2 Betas Free With Gamestop PreordersGamestop without any notice just started putting up images stating that anyone that preorders sc2 gets a free beta invite to the game.

This is somewhat of a jerk move because all the players that pre ordered the game months ago are not being called about this extra perk they are getting. The only way they can get in on this action is if they drive to a gamestop and tell them that they have preordered the game.

If you haven’t already preordered one of this years best games then you should run over to your local gamestop and get a preorder and your beta key. Blizzard just announced that started next week players will get access to the creator tools, so a flurry of new content is going to show up online for custom made beta games. If you saw the preview a few months back you can make an entire fps with just these tools, however lots of players are excited for new custom game types such as the famous ones players on the Warcraft 3 Servers.

Here is the link to starcraft 2 on gamestop’s own site talking about the beta invites.

Blizzard Bans 350k D2 and WC3 Players

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

Blizzard in a surprise move today banned more than 350,000 players of both diablo 2 and Warcraftcraft 3.

Most all these players where banned for using 3rd party programs not as intended. This will be a great thing for those diablo 2 fans that started hating the fact every game had a RMT spammer or a hammerdin bot. As for warcraft 3 it will be somewhat nice to play the old school battles without someone using a map hack to see where you are. The ban was said to also be permanent so no one can actually dispute it which more than likely means they have a new way to detect players maliciously using software to their advantage.

This might be another way for activision to make more money on players as well some have said since they are going to be needing it since infinity ward is no more. The only silver lining for some cheaters is if they where banned for cheating and this is their first offense then they can play again after waiting 30 days.
