Demon Hunter - Inferno Diablo Budget Guide
RGDiablo3 has posted a guide to defeating Inferno Diablo with 660k worth of gear from the AH. What is good about the guide is it lists what stats (and their range) to look for on cheaply priced gear. Make sure to check out his thread for more information and to leave any feedback.

Whether you plan to level your existing character to 90 or start fresh with a new pandaren monk, it’s never too early to begin preparing for your adventure. Simply log in to your Battle.net® account, and then pre-purchase Mists of Pandaria. You’ll then be flagged to automatically download the expansion content prior to release so you’ll be ready to go when the game launches.
During the pre-purchase process, you’ll have the option to grab either the Mists of Pandaria Standard Edition for $39.99 USD or the all-new Digital Deluxe edition for $59.99 USD -- or, if you snag the standard edition now and decide you want to upgrade to Digital Deluxe later, you’ll have the opportunity to do so for an additional $20.
The Digital Deluxe edition includes a full digital copy of the expansion, as well as a selection of Pandaria-inspired in-game content for World of Warcraft, Diablo III, and StarCraft II. If you’re looking for even more plunder, a special Mists of Pandaria Collector’s Edition with additional bonus items will also be available exclusively at select retail locations for a suggested retail price of $79.99 USD.
For more details on the September 25, 2012 release of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, be sure to hit the official press release, or head to our new Mists of Pandaria game page to learn more about the expansion and prepurchase your digital copy.
*When you pre-purchase World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, you will be able to download an encrypted version of the game once it’s available, prior to the game’s release. This content will be unlocked and available for play when the expansion launches on September 25, 2012.
John August on Diablo III's Story
The story of Diablo III has brought much debate around the forums with some loving it and others disliking it. Kotaku has posted an article quoting what John August (Screenwriter for Charlie's Angels, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and many more) had to say about Diablo III's story. What are your thoughts on the story?
[You can find the quote below or check out the full article on Kotaku.]
August says it's not necessarily about being able to make decisions—he just wants the illusion of choice.
"Note that I'm not actually demanding choice or free will as a player. Look, I've played Diablo. I'll go kill the next thing. But I'd love to feel like my character was making the choice, rather than being a lackey."

TheHolyArk over on sc2mapster has remade part of the High Heavens in Starcraft 2. Though not all the assets can load perfectly in sc2, it still looks rather great.
Diablo II in Starcraft 2
On a even greater scale than the first video, Egod123 is working on remaking Diablo II in starcraft 2. He has some very interesting progress going on right now, and you can watch him make the map and play it live.
