- The convention floor, full of all sorts of shiny temptations for your inner fanboy (or girl).
- The uneventful opening ceremonies. I hope you weren't expecting a big announcement!
- The many fans attending in costume and the costume contest.
- Panels on World of Warcraft's user interface, the game's classes, the game's art, and the arena PvP tournament.
- Diablo 3 news ruled the day, with the announcement of a new class (the wizard), plenty of wizard info in their class panel, new screenshots & cinematic, gameplay video, and hands-on gameplay.
- The news that StarCraft 2 was being released as a trilogy (with one game for the Terran campaign, one game for the Zerg campaign, and one game for the Protoss campaign) left some people cold, but we've got to say the gameplay Blizzard is showing off still looks incredible.
