Good Morning Sanctuary – New Trademark, Battle.Net Launcher & Console Teaser


A few nuggets of Blizzard news have appeared overnight.

There’s a little intrigue with a new trademark filing of “Cute But Deadly” spotted by Gamespot. It’s been trademarked for printed matter, action figures and other toys and boardgames but not for videogames. I can’t see that “Cute But Deadly” can be applied to any toys coming from existing franchises so this would suggest it’s connected to one of their undisclosed projects. Perhaps they are working on something akin to Activision’s Skylanders or Disney’s Infinity, if it was attached to a game.

After the link is the new #EvilReoborn Teaser and the new Battle.net Launcher video.

Blizzard have released the third teaser trailer in the #EvilReborn series. It’s called ‘Trapped’.

Some footage of the new Battle.Net Launcher which includes all Blizzard games in one single Steam-like application has been posted by HuskyStarcraft. The launcher includes all the latest news, patch notes and the ability to launch which ever Blizzard games you have installed. This is currently in beta testing.

And if you managed to get through that six minutes and 41 seconds without losing the will to live, you’re made of tougher stuff than I.

  1. I got through about 15 seconds of that 6:41 and lost the will to continue. Mr. Used Car Salesman high energy voice exhausted me at once.

    As for that first promo video… odd choice for D3 on the console. It looks like one of those Blair Witch video type movies, where shaky night vision camerawork is supposed to be take the place of acting or a story. Maybe appropriate for some zombie horror shooter, but I don’t really see the D3 connection.

  2. The evilreborn trailer would of been Wayyyy more suited for Diablo 1 or 2 moving to Console, than the PG version D3 is, going. The only upside down Pentagram I saw in D3 was in my Banner selection, in the trailer, its on the wall where the guy is running towards hehe Diablo 1 was all about upside down burning crosses, pentagrams, and just straight darkness. Diablo 2 toned it down but still kept some of the creepiness and pentagrams on “Pause”. D3 is not even like a Diablo game anymore, its a PG version of WoW Diablo themed.

    Anyways, I guess I liked the evilreborn trailer, though not appropriate for D3.

  3. Two questions about the new launcher:

    1. Will we be able to access our friends list / ingame chat without actually logging in? That would be ideal. I’ve been asking it seems like forever for a desktop chat interface….

    2. Any thought that Blizz might allow Diablo 3 players to access Flux’s ladder system directly thru this thing? Might be a helluva longshot, but as I’ve learned in my life, it never hurts to ask. They just MIGHT say yes! Flux should ask them (quickly, before this gets finalized).
