Everyone I know is talking about Diablo III. Hardly anyone ever mentions Max Payne 3, so it was a shock to find out that Max Payne 3 did better in sales compared to Diablo III in the UK. Max Payne 3 has also outperformed Max Payne 2 ten to one.
I still have to check out Diablo III, but I have More >
How do you follow up an act like Diablo II?
That is the question Blizzard had to find an answer to when working on the third title in the legendary franchise. There are expectations to meet, standards to adhere to, and the satisfaction of millions of fans to satiate. For a title that people have More >
There were fans who were disappointed with the way Diablo III was shaping up. These fans were complaining that the new game was more colorful and less dark than the previous games. Blizzard’s answer to that is to add a secret level called Whimsyshire, the land of rainbows, teddy bears, and pink More >
We’ve been through much together Blizzard. The good times (vanilla WOW), and the bad (Mists of Panderia), and with every launch you have taken careful consideration on server traffic, game compatibility, and customer support. What happened!? One lay off and suddenly the biggest launch of this year More >
I would tell you to grab the red bull and get on it, but it’s already been done. Diablo 3 launched at midnight last night, and zealous fans, who either adjusted their sleep schedule, gulped energy drinks all night, or were simply on a Diablo 3-playing high, have managed to complete the game. A More >
With Diablo’s hordes set to be released in less than a week, Blizzard has released an animated short. The animated short is made by Titmouse Inc., the company who brought us the Afro Samurai opening, Metalocalypse, GI Joe: Resolution, Black Panther, and soon the Grimm Fairy Tales animated series.

There’s less than two weeks left before the hordes of Burning Hells are unleashed upon the Earth. They have already started to make their presence known. They have started a campaign on the television screen, letting the world know of their ascension to Earth. Just look at the vileness that they More >
Blizzard introduces Global Play for Diablo 3. This will allow players to take on the Burning Hells’ hordes with friends halfway around the world. Global Play functionality allows players to play games on servers outside their own region with few restrictions of course. Here is a quick breakdown of More >
Oh, wait, that’s the wrong tribe. Sorry about that, Witch Doctor. Anyway, the Witch Doctor is here, and he’s brought an army of pets. The Gargantuan appears to be his biggest summoned pet, hence the name, and he can slap man-sized bats out of the sky like they’re moths. The Witch Doctor can throw More >
This past weekend, Blizzard decided to give fans a treat by running a 3-day stress test for their servers which in turn allowed everyone to play the Diablo III beta. Some might say that they enjoyed it a lot and had fun playing the game.
Unfortunately, not everyone had the same experience. Many More >
You read that right, Diablo 3 beta is open for everyone starting this afternoon Friday, April 20, until Monday, April 23rd 10 AM PDT. They are doing this as a stress test for when the game comes out, and to do so they are going to open up the Beta testing for everyone. This is one of the most More >
Though the Monks of Diablo 3 can dual-wield maces and spin staffs around with great skill, they apparently prefer to use their bare hands to defeat evil–me too. This week’s video focuses on the holy monk, whose successive attacks on enemies raise his “spirit”, which can then be used to perform More >
It wasn’t but a few weeks ago that a series of videos regarding the character class skills were released. This week we all have the privilege of watching the Barbarian annihilate his foes with wide-arcing melee attacks and area-of-effect stomps. Additionally, Blizzard has put together a fairly More >
Activision-Blizzard continues to drip feed information and video to us as the impending May 15th release of the world’s most famous dungeon crawler makes its third return. Being a fan of the Hunter class in World of Warcraft and the Assassin from Diablo 2, I plan to continue playing as the agile More >
It’s just as the Mayans predicted. The end of days is near; Hell shall be released upon Earth. Diablo 3 will be unleashed onto the world on May 15, 2012. That is exactly two months from today. This news has been 15 years in the making. After being able to play the beta last year, I was getting More >
It is a very special occasion when a Blizzard game is released, because, well, they take their sweet time to make their games as good as they possibly can be. I’m okay with that. It means that I know that when I sit down to play, I can expect an extraordinary experience. Based on the fact that a More >
Its that time of year again, BlizzCon is upon us and with that news on anything Blizzard is bound to come. And one of the news I have been waiting on for years is the release of Diablo 3. Yesterday the Facebook page for Diablo announced that there will be a Diablo 3 Collector’s Edition.
With the More >
Disclaimer: This is an impression based on the current beta in development and are merely thoughts of what it offers at the moment. It does not accurately describe the final version of the game.
Ever since Blizzard announced Diablo III, I’ve been waiting for the day to get my hands on the game. More >
This is probably the smartest thing I’ve ever seen released outside of a main release for an RPG game. Blizzard’s Skill Calculator allows eager would-be Diablo 3 players to test out their character builds before the actual game comes out. Players can choose up to six active skills and three More >
Blizzard has once again taken digital addiction to the next level. World of Warcraft has always been plagued by those who are lovingly (sarcasm) called “Chinese” Farmers. Now don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against the Chinese, but the largest portion of these ninja looters comes from China. More >
When is Diablo 3 coming out? Sorry, we don’t know that yet. Heck, even Blizzard might not know that yet either. What we do know though, is that new footage has emerged from the media event for Diablo 3 that was held on July 27th. It appears that every class is present in the monster-slashing More >
Steelseries has always had top of the line gaming gear, and this year at E3, we were shown a few of their new products. Although not on the market yet, I felt my mouth begin to water when shown this oh so glorious piece of hardware.
But it does not end there, Here is what its paired with.

Don’t get too excited non-PC players, but Blizzard is looking for a senior software engineer to be “a key contributor on the Diablo team” who is a “Playstation 3 specialist”. Though this is not an admission by Blizzard that there is definitely a console version of Diablo coming anytime soon, but More >
A video of the followers that will appear in Diablo 3 has just recently been leaked. Blizzard apparently confirmed that the video was real, and then officially released it. The followers first appeared in Diablo 2, and basically they are killers-for-hire who can aid you in battle. The video shows More >
Activision-Blizzard just announced that they will stop selfishly playing Diablo 3 all by themselves. Yes, we the gamers who are not privy to have a cush’ job at the house of Diablo may soon get to play too. The demo could come as early as July, or as late as September. They’re still intent on More >
