Diablo III - it's official!

Just saw over at eurogamer ( who are at the blizzard event in France that diablo III has been announced. This was not a surprise at all really, what with their teasers and so on recently, but I am very excited.

Now to wait for release date info and hopefully the cinematic and ingame videos that were shown to come online. I am so buying a copy for everyone in the office. LAN multiplayer, here we come!

EDIT: Okay, got a link to the videos, the US site is being hammered right now so I doubt it would be worth your while going there just yet. I am hoping the EU one is slightly better...yeah right.

Just a quick test to see if my mobile blogging works.

Oh, and an excuse for a really crap picture of snake on my TV!

Okay, so my girlfriend got me MGS4. I would probably have had to wait a few more weeks before I could afford to get it, and now instead of that I am able to have it in my PS3 right now (Thanks Bibi!).

Initial impressions are pretty favourable! Although I guess I would say that since I am a sucker for that sort of spoilers though. I will post about it more as I go through it. Maybe I might do a play-blog or whatever they call those kinds of things. No videos from me though :-(

First Post!

Woohoo! I get to say that once more. After several abortive/miscarried attempts at keeping a blog, I am here again...maybe this one will last?

Anyways, I was inspired to make this post after reading a post by the always insightful Chris Plante of Hard Casual over at gamesetwatch - link. It made me think about my whole plan to make videogames once I had settled down in Nigeria. The 'settling down' period has been going on for the last oooh 3 years and 6 months now, and it doesn't seem like I have made any head way at all into game development. Well, I am going to sit down and try again. So, this blog is going to have my game development exploits, as well as commentary on various games I have played or even some game design theory, and some other arty stuff.

Anyways, do rss and let's see if I can keep you interested!
