BlizzCon: Day One

Cataclysm launch details, new Diablo III news and Starcraft 2 map editor

Blizzcon: Diablo 3

Blizzcon: Diablo 3

BlizzCon kicked off with a slew of standard announcements (20 years of Blizzard, 12 million World of Warcraft players, etc.), plus some newsy tidbits for fans of each of the company's three major franchises.

First up is World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. You can get it at midnight December 7 from Blizzard's site, thus eliminating the need to wait in lines for pre-order pickup.

Next is Diablo 3, which got a fifth and final class reveal of the Demon Hunter. So far, it looks to be a ranged magic user with a sweet crossbow. Blizzard also announced arena player versus player battles.

Finally, StarCraft 2's map editor gets put to good use by Blizzard devs making homage maps like "Star Jeweled," "the Iron Chef," "Left 2 Die," and "Blizzard DOTA." The dev-made maps are coming to your computer for free in the next few months.

We'll keep our eyes open for any other announcements out of BlizzCon, but the real fun is out on the floor. If you happen to be there yourself, shoot us your impressions of Cataclysm, the Demon Hunter, and the new SC2 maps.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
