Feature: Lacklustre yet satisfying

Diablo in Diablo III works well despite itself

Check your expectations. The Darkening Of Tristam, the free, time-limited new mini-campaign recently added to Diablo 3 [official site], is most certainly not the full-on Diablo 1 (number added merely for clarity) we hoped for. Nor is it a meaningful bolt-on for those D3 die-hards who crave another hit of over-statted loot. If, however, you are a filthy casual, it's a refreshingly straightforward, aesthetically-tweaked way…

World of Warcraft event opens Diabolical cow level

While every day is satanday chez Alice, Blizzard are a little more reserved. They've waited until the 20th anniversary of Diablo's launch to unleash a torrent of satans and skellingtons, and even remake the first game inside Diablo III. We mentioned that before, and now it's live. But! Beyond that, Blizzard have also put D3 on sale, sent the Dark Wanderer into Hearthstone, and unleashed…

You want it darker: Diablo remade inside Diablo III

It is the future, the year 1996. The age of serially abusing the left mouse button has begun - for Diablo is born. Soon, you will be able to transport your haggard soul back to that more innocent age of mass slaughter, blasphemous themes and venal kleptomania. Diablo 3 [official site]'s 20th Anniversary event/patch kicks off later this month, and they've only gone and remade…

He Was The Lore: Blizzard’s Chris Metzen Retires

Blizzard lorelord Chris Metzen ('senior vice president of story and franchise development', if you want to be technical) has handed in his badge and his loregiver (his keyboard, obvs) and taken The Long Walk into The Cursed Earth (idk, Reddit?). After nearly 23 years of laying down the lore and voicing characters from Thrall to the good ol' Terran Battlecruiser, Metzen last night announced his…

Blizzard Take Another Legal Crack At Cheat Makers

I miss the days when cheats for multiplayer games were quaint little things which didn't quite work - wallhacks which turned levels into confusing glass mazes, aimbots which mostly missed unless you had a really low ping. I almost felt sorry for people using them. Now cheats are everywhere, they're horrible, and they're difficult to stop. Blizzard are going straight to the source, recently filing…

Blizzard’s Battle.net Authenticator Goes One-Button

Blizzard's Battle.net Mobile Authenticator app is now less of a faff, simply showing "Approve" and "Deny" buttons for authorising logins. Previously, it'd generate a code folks would need to type out while logging in to play Overwatch, StarCraft II, and whatnot. It's a tiny change but removing any faff from security procedures is always good. If you already use the authenticator, hooray for less faff!…

Have you played Diablo III [official site]? For me it's one of those games I find myself drawn back to time and time again for reasons I'm not entirely sure I can explain. I love messing about with it, basically, tinkering with builds, developing individual traits, I can never seem to be finished with it. The latest patch - number 2.4 - is huge and…
