Diablo III Whimsyshire Replaces Cows with Teddy Bears and Ponies [SPOILERS]

Diablo III Launch Traffic Leaves Some Unable to Login
After years worth of delays, Blizzard finally made good on a promise and launched Diablo III today. Technically, the launch was last night at midnight.

Minecraft in Minecraft: The Inevitable Has Occurred
The last time I posted about a Minecraft map that recreates another videogame I said I couldn’t wait for Minecraft: Minecraft. And now it’s here, albeit with a different name: Mineception. It’s also more primitive than I expected, although in hindsight I didn’t really have an idea of what Minecraft in Minecraft would look like.

Slide to Unlock Now a Game: What’s Next? Power On, Power Off?
The “Slide to Unlock” interface has become one of the most iconic features of iOS devices. It never occurred to me to think of it as a fun activity, but apparently thousands of people do, because there’s actually a game built around it.

PlayThru CAPTCHA Alternative: Achievement Unlocked: You’re a Human!
I don’t sign up for a lot of things – one of the many benefits of being antisocial and reclusive! – but when I do, I hate the CAPTCHA part.
