Are we getting remasters of Warcraft 3 and Diablo 2? Blizzard is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to, and I’m quoting here, “restore [Starcraft, Warcraft III and Diablo 2] to glory.” This is in line with a similar job posting from 2015, and Blizzard has been talking about restoring these games in the same basic language for years. We haven’t heard much about what they...

If you’ve yet to achieve your season...

Latest Diablo 3 beta patch adds more ways to break things, number tuning, and more Not long after we got to take a look at the new cinematic intros for the Necromancer, we’re being treated with a new patch for Diablo 3’s beta — which, by the way, is still offering increased experience and Blood Shard gains until tomorrow night. Most of the changes in today’s build are tweaks to...

Diablo 3 Necromancer gets a beta experience boost and new cinematic intro In what Blizzard is calling a “server slam” (AKA a stress test), the Diablo 3 Necromancer beta is receiving a short-term, 100% boost to both experience and Blood Shard gains.

Do you still play Diablo 2? Sometimes I wonder just who’s still playing Diablo 3 — because while I’ve found it a tremendously fun game, the lack of new content has left me bored. I just can’t do same old same old forever, which is exactly why I tend to move away from WoW during those end of expansion lulls. But...

Since we’ve heard nothing about a new Diablo 3 expansion (and the Necromancer is clearly not tied to any new expansion) I’ve found myself musing a lot about what I’d do next if I was in charge of Diablo as a property. Of course, no one’s surprised that I want a sandbox RPG out of...

Will you play Diablo’s Necromancer? Without much in the way of new Diablo 3 content, I have to admit I haven’t played the game in months. Sure, there have been new Seasons with their armor sets and achievements, but it hasn’t been enough to hold my interest for long.
