http://www.destructoid.com/xcom-enemy-unknown-screenshots-and-details-219314.phtmlFiraxis Games' XCOM: Enemy Unknown was a pleasant surprise for the people who wanted the series to come back, but not in the form of a first-person shooter.

http://www.destructoid.com/diablo-iii-appears-to-have-a-release-date-219247.phtml It's not officially 100% confirmed, but this physical display at a Minnesota Best Buy seems like pretty solid evidence. According to a series of photos sent into Joystiq by one of their readers, Best Buy is advertising a midnight launch of Diablo III on February 1st. This meshes with the leaked Blizzard roadmap, which had a Q4 2011 release of the game as a goal, and also makes sense considering the builds of the game I've seen at Blizzard HQ and at BlizzCon in the last few months.
