The fourth expansion since the initial launch of World of Warcraft has launched today and introduces a new race of Pandarens. Many people remember this race as a humorous character from the Warcraft III games, namely “The Brewmaster” which initially started off as a sort of April fools joke but spun off into a well-liked character.
Players will be able to play as Pandarens regardless of faction and will be able to play as a Hunter, Mage, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warrior, or the new class Monk. Starting a Pandaren will start players off at level 1 on the Wandering Isle (the back of a giant turtle) and will leave the area around level 12. Towards the end-game, there will be 6 new dungeons and 3 new raids to do group content with the level cap raised from 85 to 90. There are no new professions in this expansion but there is a pet battle minigame.
The Fifth installment of the DOA series is out and the folks at Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja has brought over characters from Sega’s Virtua Fighter to join the roster adding up to a total of 23 fighters in all. Dead or Alive 5 is the first game in its series that was developed without any input from the series creator Tomonobu Itagaki. It is also the first game in the series on the PS3. Several retailers offered pre-order bonuses which mostly feature sexy swimsuit outfits for the bodacious female fighters.
