What Are The Best Game Manuals?

The omnipresence of the Internet, together with the ease of modern control schemes, has all but eradicated the need for game manuals. Who needs a glossy paper booklet when they have Reddit and GameFAQs and YouTube? Who has time to read with such a gluttony of entertainment options available at their fingertips? But game manuals and owner’s guides aren’t just about information. The best ones…

Heroes Of The Storm: Eternal Conflict Adding More Diablo

We knew Diablo's Butcher was coming to Heroes of the Storm [official site] with its Diablo-y Eternal Conflict expansion, but Blizzard had saved up a little secret or two. They don't let you even into Los Angeles this week unless you have something new to show off, you know.The Monk and dear old King Leoric the Skeleton King are also making his way to the…

Diablo 1 HD Mod Adds Support For Modern Machines

Diablo games become like obsessions, and like any obsessive-compulsive knows, slight changes to routine can cause you to lose your shit. That means that you might like or loathe Diablo 3, but if the first game was your first love, you'll likely long to return. The Diablo 1 HD mod makes that much easier by increasing the game's resolution, introducing support for widescreen displays, improving…

The Devil Cries: Rob Pardo Pardos Ways With Blizzard

That headline might be confusing for some of you, so allow me to elaborate: Rob Pardo's been one of Blizzard's top designers for 17 years, making him - among many other things - one of Diablo's many daddies. So when I say the devil cries, I'm mostly referring to that. I'm sure he's blowing his 666 nostrils into a +44 WIS Hanky Of Wretched Despondency…

Wot I Read: Blizzard Biography ‘Stay Awhile And Listen’

Stay Awhile And Listen: How Two Blizzards Unleashed Diablo And Forged A Videogame Empire is David L. Craddock's ebook unofficial biography of... well, it's in the title, isn't it? Consisting of reminisces from Blizzard staff, design insight and a document of how the then-games industry worked, it's the tale of how plucky start-up Condor Inc became Blizzard North and created the grandaddy of action RPGs.

Wow: Hyper Light Drifter Is Diablo Meets Link To The Past

Oh. Oh my. That is the second post I've introduced with those words today, but that does not (necessarily!) mean I'm creatively bankrupt. Rather, it's been a very good time for brilliantly impressive games that just sort of appear out of nowhere. First Eden Star took me entirely by surprise with its runleaping Minecraft's Edge antics, and now Hyper Light Drifter is dazzling me with…

Oh My: Marvel Heroes MMO Sounds Superb

Isn't this just like Marvel? DC puts the weight of an entire movie on one hero, and Marvel fires back with six (seven, if you count Hulk twice - which you should). Then DC shows off an excellent-looking Lego beat 'em up with 50 heroes, and Marvel rains on its superpowered parade with 8,000 of its own. That's Marvel Heroes in a nutshell. Actually, no it's…

Diablo Gets A 15th Anniversary Website…

And still no Diablo III on my hard-drive! It's close though, so close we can smell it. It smells of 200 developers having sat in the same office for five years. Mmm, unmistakable. Anyway, there are interviews with Jay Wilson and Chris Metzen (as well as an "extended retrospective") on Blizzard's 15th anniversary site, and Wilson says that Blizzard are "almost done" with the third…

Doomablo

It's a love story for the ages: two of most important names in PC gaming history have finally admitted their feelings for each other, and after a whirlwind romance they have a beautiful bouncing baby. Yes, Doom and Diablo now have a child to call their own, and of course it's as gloriously moronic as its parents.

Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Just The Gossip Messenger

Look, I don't know. I DON'T KNOW. This could all be a terrible trick, a plea for attention, and I'm very sorry for adding to the rumour mill.But...Fansite Blizzplanet links to a different fansite, Diablo3.com, which is currently hosting a rather noisy countdown timer. It currently reads 13 days. Until what? "until half the web links to Diablo3.com. But why???", it says. I'd take it…
