Battlefield 3 - The Battlelog Explained

Yesterday was the start of the open beta of Battlefield 3 for everyone with a Xbox, PS3 or a PC - even without key. Regarding today, the Battlelog is explained, which will replace the in-game menu of BF3 at all.

The Battlelog is a free social network just for BF3 but it can be confusing if you're new.

The huge amount of features with game creation, servers, campaigns, co-op, multiplayer statistics, weapon unlocks and upgrades are explained in this video. As said before, the Battlelog is a free social network in BF3 replacing the whole menu and can be reached in-game, using your PC, or mobile. It will ease the communication with your friends to set up a game for example. If you're a new soldier at the front, this video could help you.

Diablo 3 - Armor Sets Detailed

There were different armor sets of each class in Diablo 3 revealed because these armor sets were found and pictured in the beta client of Diablo 3 itself.

These 23 armor sets aren't included in the beta but in the full game, while in the beta there are only one or two sets for each class. Blizzard wants to save up their content. If you wondered how your class will look like in the early or even in the late game, this is your chance to do so. My opinion is that the Barbarian looks best with his third set, and that's why I'm going to play a male Barbarian when Diablo 3 is released.

Diablo 3 - Auctions with Paypal

Blizzard confirmed the partnership with Paypal so players can buy and sell items using the Paypal service.

There are two different auction houses in Diablo 3 while the first works just as the one in World of Warcraft with in-game gold and auctions. The second one works with real money, as confirmed earlier by Blizzard, meaning players who have found rare items could either use them or sell them for 5$ for example.

Now the partnership with Paypal was revealed so players can buy and sell items using Paypal and their services.These are good news due to the security brought by Paypal. The Diablo 3 real money auction house could have been abused but now fraud is prevented.


Battlefield 3 - Multiplayer Guide

First of all, Conquest and Rush are back with several tweaks and additions to suit your deep and realistic fights in multiplayer. Team Deathmatch and Squad Deathmatch are included as well, especially for close quarters infantry fights and fiercely disputed, small maps.

Conquest is the last mode to add, with huge vehicle warfare as nearly unstoppable weapons - including jets, tanks, and helicopters. For clan wars and clan clashes the "Squad" modes should be prefered.

Diablo 3 - Skill and Spell Calculator

Here is the full and official calculator for every spell and skill available in Diablo 3 - for every class.

What are the options for a build?
How many skills are included in D3?
How can I skill my wizard?
What about passive skills?
An answer to all these questions can the found in the official Skill Calculator of Diablo 3.

You are able to choose between every spell, skill, or ability available and test you favorite build or guide for your class. For example, you pick the demon hunter with her grenades, a spike trap and cluster arrow. Now the calculator shows you have to reach level 23 first to unlock all these three skills.

Furthermore, there are 13 different passive skills in Diablo 3 but you can only use three at a time. Once you reach level 10 you are able to use you first. Level 20 and 30 must be achieved to use you second, respectively all three. An example: You are level 10 so you can choose between "Brooding" or "Thrill of the Hunt" as passives.  
Brooding: As long as you have not taken any damage in the last 5 seconds you gain 2% of your maximun health per second. 
Thrill of the Hunt: Every 10 seconds your next normal attack will immobilize your target for 3 seconds.
