    IGN article on the "Five Things We Want from Blizzcon." Zero new game info; purely a space-filler. What do they want from D3 @ Blizzcon? A release date. Good luck with that, boys.

    The only worthwhile part of the presskit is the gameplay video. The documents are crappy, screenshots are meh, 90% of the artwork we already seen before.

    Jay mentioned in one of the side interviews with the Directv people that they have the entire game built from beginning to end. You can begin at the start and make your way through every area to the end of the game. He mentioned, however, that there were some pretty rough spots still. Some bosses don't have AI and take one hit to kill.

    I don't have an official URL for this info. It is just what I saw earlier before the live raid.

    If anyone didn't know yet, you can find pretty much any Blizzcon 2010 panel on noobclubru's Youtube-Channel, with pretty good quality (480p).
