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.

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.

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…
