Here’s one for fans of Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft.

Can’t get to BlizzCon 2008 at the Anaheim Convention Center? You can always fork out and watch it on Main Event -at least it’s cheaper than the airfare and accommodation.

The pay per view sessions will cost you $14.95 for each day in two 8 hour sessions. You can watch it live from 4am on Saturday October 11 or wait for the 3pm replay.
