    Diablo III made waves when it released in the summer of 2012, but since then developer Blizzard has struggled to balance endgame and loot. Blizzard’s newest answer to the problem is Patch 2.0.1. This isn’t just a game update – it’s a game overhaul. Almost no part of the game has... More
  • Blog Post: Places – World Of Warcraft's Crossroads

    Some would say Blizzard’s virtual playground of Azeroth is all about acquiring new, rare loot or participating in end-game content, which might be true for some.

  • Blog Post: CosBlog # 86: Diablo Monk Concept by Zerina

    I can vouch for how impressive Zerina’s female monk from Diablo 3 is – having been in the audience when she won the costume contest at Blizzcon in 2010. More often than not cosplayers have to choose between form and function in their projects – sacrificing mobility for accuracy, or... More
