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 piss-weak,…

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…

Quite A Treasure: Diablo 3 Adding Kanai‚Äôs Cube

"You have quite a treasure there in that Horadric Handbag!" A friend dressed as Deckard Cain for Halloween one year.

Diablo III 2.1.2 Changes Goblins, Rifts, Hubs

Diablo was the awkward child of this BlizzCon. With WoW's expansion coming soon and StarCraft's Legacy of the Void now being shown off, Diablo is the only currently-released game without a paid update on the horizon. I figured another expansion would be announced this weekend, but between a new game, movie news and the like, nothing was forthcoming. When asked, the reply was "nothing to announce." Instead,…

Diablo III Patched, Now Greater, More Seasonal

Because video games, one of the things added in the latest Diablo III patch is "The Cesspools." They're the sewers of Westmarch, a city overrun by an angel of death and his hoards of minions, making them only slightly better than a toy store in the run up to Christmas. They're included in patch 2.1.0 as a new area to explore within the endgame Nephalem Rifts,…

Blizzard, How About Allowing “Trans*” Diablo III Clan Names

Diablo III has recently made some major updates, including closing the much-loathed auction house. Another of the new features was the addition of clans, essentially guilds for the online ARPG. Limited to 120 members, their intention was to create something smaller than the game's "communities", and also something private - invite only. However, for some reason the game's filters are preventing anyone from creating a…

The Hammer Falls: Diablo III Auction House Closes

Kumquat-complexioned entrepreneur David Dickinson shoulders you aside as he storms the corridors of the Diablo III Auction House. "How can they shut it all down?" He barks, beads of butter springing from his forehead where only sweat would be visible on a lesser man. "Where will I be able to offload this Wicker Chair of +7 Discomfort and Old Tin Soldier of +2 Melancholy Reflections…

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…

Diablo III: Reaper Of Souls Sets Scythes On Release

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls' closed beta is now in full swing, and that colloquialism makes it sound like everyone's singing and dancing along to big band music instead of hacking and slashing. If only that were the case. If only. But the clickity clacking Second Coming Of Loot is inching ever closer to completion, so Blizzard's seen fit to issue a release date. That's…
