More on video games - Starcraft Universe *Female Character Models*

A short update on what's been going on with SC:U as of late-

Zealot (female)

The explosively popular in-development map Starcraft Universe has posted a new update: female character models.
I want you all to get past how trivial this update may seem and instead focus on how much detail they are adding to the game.  The models are VERY good, and hopefully it could be inferred that the rest of the game design will follow suit.

High Templar (female)

The overall progress of the game is slowly gliding forward. Personally I hope they take their time and set a new precedent for Custom Maps in SC2. Blizzcon 2011 in October has promised a pvp arena gameplay for SC:U, so hopefully we can jump into an open beta by the end of this month or beginning of next.

Preserver (female)

Thanks for staying posted. Happy gaming!

Diablo III Beta - Leaked

That's right, there's just been a leak of some screenshots and footage from the highly anticipated Diablo III Beta this month. This means both that someone has shared when they shouldn't have and, more excitingly, that beta keys must have started rolling out to a small population (most likely 'friends and family' of Blizzard employees) already!!

Have a look here:

The video reveals mostly character creation and what the first few beginning moments of the game are like. This is, for some reason, taken from a user with very low graphics settings so it's nothing too visually dazzling.
The Beta is said to be on track for an invite-only release later this month! Anyone with a account is eligible and, if you haven't already signed up, here's how:

Is anyone else as excited about this as I am? Enjoy!
