The 25 best co-op games ever made

Sometimes you need a hand to hold, so we’ve updated our list of the 25 best co-op games to play on PC with a headset-wearing friend or a muted stranger. Everything's better with a pal or two in tow, from collaborative puzzle solving to sublime double stealth takedowns. Equally sublime are when those takedowns go awry, your partner shrieks in panic and all hands are…

The curse of chunky pixels falls upon Diablo 3 once more

Loot-hoarders rev up your engines and reinstall Diablo 3, because it's time for another annual dive into Diablo's past courtesy of the retro-themed Darkening of Tristram event coming back for another month of low-fi demon-slaughter. For those who missed out on on this event last year, it's a good time to dust off your demon-slaying gear. Not only is Diablo 3 still a well supported…

Beelzebabble: Diablo 4 Rumours Abound

Update: David Brevik has since tweeted that he's not involved in any Diablo projects at the moment. That's why you should never listen to gossip. Alice is away today, so I'm posting a rumour. She'll be SO MAD when she gets back! Anyway, rumours are circulating that Blizzard might be about to announce Diablo 4 at next month's Blizzcon. Each rumour on its own is…

The archangel from Diablo III will join the public test realm next week before entering the Nexus the week of August 8th. Auriel's a Support character, and possesses a number of healing and damage-dealing abilities. Here's a video introducing her:

Diablo III Patch 2.4 Out On PTR Next Week

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…

Have You Played… Diablo III?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Diablo III [official site] is a game I'm accustomed to playing on console while curled up on the sofa with another player. We savour the hammy (and sometimes nonsensical) dialogue, take turns examining our inventories for legendary items or tweaking our character builds,…

Diablo 3: Reaper Of Souls review

The most interesting thing about Reaper of Souls, the first expansion for Diablo 3, is that it's an admission of guilt. Blizzard are one of the best developers in the world not only because it makes great games, but because it prods and tweaks and adds to them after release until they positively hum with glory. But Reaper of Souls isn't a nip here and…

Reap For The Picking: Diablo III’s Huge Loot 2.0 Patch Live

Diablo III's first expansion, Reaper of Souls, won't explode forth from the Internet's gleaming loot cavities for another month, but the free patch that includes a healthy chunk of its content is already here right now. Well, if you live in America. It's not out in other regions yet, but it will be soon. It's quite a behemoth, with loot of the 2.0 variety flowing from both…

Mystic Myriam: New Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls Details

Diablo 3 launched, sold millions of copies, but then seemed to almost disappear amid complaints that it lacked an endgame, that its auction house had ruined the thrill of finding new items, and that it was too easy until you'd completed it multiple times. Blizzard seem to have listened to the complaints, and next year's expansion, Reaper of Souls, aims to re-define your relationship with…

Schadenfriday: Diabl-NOOOOOOOOO!

Why, hello there! Diablo here. What? No. No, Diablo 3. Diablo 2 was my father. Those miserable fleshlings at Rock Paper Shotgun have asked me to cast my expert eye over you scumbags' failed attempts at murdering me IN MY OWN ****ING HOUSE. Why? The correct assumption I might rather enjoy witnessing hours upon hours of Hardcore adventuring going straight down the crapper. In exchange…

Dialblo 3’s Witch Doctor Has Hell Toads

Were you looking the other way when the Diablo 3 open beta launched last weekend? I'm sorry. If reports are to be believed, the servers wobbled like a gyroscope at the end of a good spin, so you if you missed out you probably saved yourself from being teased by the title screen. There is some comfort to be had in the Witch Doctor overview…

SimCity Always-On Clarified: Needs Internet For Launch

EA have issued a clarification to Gamespy that while you will have to have an internet connection to launch SimCity, it will not boot you off if your connection goes down. Which is to say, it's not as egregious as others' "always-on" DRM, but we maintain is still an unnecessary and game-crippling mistake, which we really hope they will reverse before release. That the game…

Be Thrilled By Diablo 3’s Skillls

I must confess that I'm immune to whatever charms Blizzard's games possess. If I am a waterdrop then Blizzard are a water lily pad, scattering me across their surface - I just want to be absorbed by the gaming nymphaeaceae, but I can't. But while my fingers don't quite click with their games, my eyes do. So I got excited when they decided now was…

You Will Die, Warn Diablo 3 Creators

In a somewhat fatalistic move, Blizzard has announced that you - you personally - will die. At some point, by accident or dreadful confluence of events, your body will cease to function, collapse, or possibly be run over by a train in a moment best described by taking a tube of toothpaste and squeezing it with the cap still on. Your friends and family will,…

Blizzard Announces New Diablo 3 Slipping Date

Looking forward to hacking your way through the armies of Hell? Blizzivision (a subsidiary of Activard) has finally announced Diablo 3's final, definitely final, absolutely no-kidding final release date... ish. It's due to land in Q2 this year, unless they decide to rewrite the entire thing and turn it into one of those point and click adventures that are currently taking the world by storm.

Feature: Why Blizzard Must Reconsider

How Diablo III’s DRM Will Affect You

Diablo III's 'always-on' DRM is obviously a matter of much controversy, albeit a more nuanced one than that of Ubisoft. Where Ubisoft implemented the grotesque system purely as a claimed measure to fight piracy, Blizzard's logic at least has some elements that offer benefits to the player. Battle.net, online ranking, drop-in-drop-out co-op, the auction house, and constant live monitoring of your progress, and monitoring to…

Blizzard Will Release Two Games In 2012

Activision, despite closing down studios as fast as they can, are at least planning on releasing some games. 2012, they promise, will feature two Blizzard titles. That's if neither of them appear this year, anyway. Which they expect they won't. But they still might. But they probably won't. The two games in question most likely being the next portion of StarCraft II, Heart Of The…

Diablo 3 At Blizzcon, Wizard Trailer

Ooh, excitement! I've posted Blizzard's splendid Wizard class trailer after the jump. Annoyingly, we weren't able to get out to Blizzcon, but plenty of our journalistic brethren were and Shacknews have come up with the Diablo 3 goods. There's some hands-on impressions here, and two length videos of the action from the newly-unveiled Wizard-class here. Blizzard's info page on the spell-chucker is here. My thoughts?…

Blizzard: Filthy Teases

There's a large part of me that never wants to write or read anything along the lines of "Diablo 3 announcement coming?" ever again. However, we are approaching something of a critical mass, so one more time... The Blizzard Worldwide Invitational hits Paris at the weekend (I'll be there, trying not to stare at girls dressed as elves), and tradition dictates there'll be an unveiling…
