Creators and players alike fondly reminisce and the whole thing almost collapses into a blackhole of backslapping self-aggrandisement around…

Diablo III 2.1.2 Changes Goblins, Rifts, Hubs

Diablo was the awkward child of this BlizzCon.

Interdimensional Time-Orcs: WoW 6.0.2 Coming Soon

I returned to World of Warcraft earlier this year on the encouragement of a few online friends. I hadn't played since the release of Mists of Pandaria in late 2012 and hadn't paid attention to the game's systems since the end of Cataclysm's life cycle. It was an odd experience; a game that I find in some ways intimately familiar, made strange through numerous small…
