Well. That was a whole lot of fun.

Blizzard was banging the big news drum over the weekend in Anaheim, California, bringing us a massive blowout on Diablo III, the first major update since the game’s reveal in Paris two years ago.

Not to be outdone, though, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm got one final showing before its December 7 release.

And we also got more on StarCraft II, including first details and art on the next part of its story, Heart of the Swarm.

There was even mention of Blizzard’s secret MMO.

Hit up everything from this past weekend below. The big bits are bolded.
