posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2127 days, 5 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 24, 2012 7:41:38 AM GMT
On January 20, Diablo 3 Senior Producer Steve Parker announced via Twitter that he's no longer working at Blizzard or on the upcoming PC game. Without specifying a reason for his departure, Parker added that he had a great 5 years working at the studio, and that "those guys are going to [do a great job] with Diablo [3]." (more)

Blizzard Making Changes to Systems in Diablo 3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2130 days, 21 hours, 35 minutes ago
Friday, January 20, 2012 10:11:01 AM GMT
Based on the topic header, it sounded as if Blizzard planned to change the system specs for its upcoming action/RPG for the PC, Diablo 3. But (currently) that's not the case at all, and instead is an announcement that the team is changing some of the core in-game systems based on feedback from the closed beta and from internal testing.

Diablo 3 Closed Beta Hands-On: Part 3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2240 days, 1 hour, 42 minutes ago
Monday, October 03, 2011 6:04:41 AM GMT
In this segment, I’m going to cover two very different classes: the Barbarian and the Monk. As with the prior two (Magician, Demon Hunter), this duo doesn’t really shine until after they’ve unlocked their third ability slot at level 6. And like the previous two, one is a bit easier to play than the other. In this case, it should be fairly obvious which one is the true hack-n-slash champ: the Barbarian. (more)

Diablo 3 Closed Beta Hands-On: Part 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2245 days, 58 minutes ago
Wednesday, September 28, 2011 6:48:03 AM GMT
ZoomIn this installment, I’m going to focus on two classes: the Wizard (arcane, elemental magic) and the Demon Hunter (ranged). Both are actually excellent for ranged attacks, yet they don’t really show their true potential until around level 6 to 8. And out of the two, I’m not exactly sure which one I like better, as they both offer a unique approach to taking down a horde of enemies. If anything, the Demon Hunter seems to be a bit more "explosive" than his magic-based comrade. (more)

Blizzard: Diablo III with a gamepad 'feels even better'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2250 days, 6 hours, 13 minutes ago
Friday, September 23, 2011 1:33:20 AM GMT
Those of you who have knee-jerk reactions should look away now. Actually, the headline is only a tiny snippet of the story here. Diablo III's appearance on consoles has long been rumored and it looks like Blizzard has admitted to experimenting with alternate control methods for the title, including using an Xbox 360-esque gamepad.

Diablo 3 May Eventually Get Gamepad Support

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2250 days, 6 hours, 24 minutes ago
Friday, September 23, 2011 1:22:54 AM GMT
Diablo 3 game director Jay Wilson has said in the past that the studio isn't necessarily a PC developer despite its current library of titles. Instead, Blizzard is a games developer -- it just so happens that the titles they do develop work best on the PC platform. (more)

Wednesday, July 13, 2011 7:56:26 AM GMT
Blizzard has shared the plan for two big e-sports events at BlizzCon in Anaheim, CA, and it looks like there's going to be a full plate of noobs, ownage and ggs yet again this year. Not only will the Global Battle.net Invitational showcase some of the best StarCraft 2 players from Blizzard's online multiplayer service, but the 2011 Global StarCraft League Final matches will be held at the same event, pitting the best of the best at the game against each other.

Blizzard Launches WoW ''Starter Edition''

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2335 days, 23 hours, 41 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 29, 2011 8:05:02 AM GMT
Tuesday evening Blizzard revealed that it converted the previous 10- and 14-day demos of World of Warcraft into a pseudo free-to-play MMORPG, throwing the time restrictions out the door and letting new players roam about indefinitely. The news arrives after Blizzard's CEO Mike Morhaime revealed that 600,000 subscribers jumped ship shortly after the release of Cataclysm, possibly due to the "quick consumption" of the expansion.

Blizzard Dota still on the way, has undergone 'some massive overhauls'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2364 days, 23 hours, 44 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 31, 2011 8:02:13 AM GMT
Blizzard Dota, the Defense of the Ancients-style official mod that was shown off at last year's BlizzCon, is still a work in progress, according to lead producer Chris Sigaty. The other three mods shown last year were released a little while ago to the community, but the Dota mod, which pits all kinds of Blizzard franchise characters up against each other in a real-time battle, needed a little extra work, apparently.

Blizzard carves out new info on Diablo 3 runestones

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2365 days, 22 hours ago
Monday, May 30, 2011 9:46:03 AM GMT
It's been a long time since we've heard much on the new rune system in Diablo 3. For those who have forgotten -- it's been a while since BlizzCon 2008, after all -- Diablo 3 players can modify every class skill with a runestone. In the early version of the system, runestones came in fairly self-explanatory flavors. A multistrike rune, for instance, would add extra hits to a given skill. (more)

Reminder: Final round of BlizzCon 2011 tickets on sale tonight

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2370 days, 1 hour, 1 minute ago
Thursday, May 26, 2011 6:45:25 AM GMT
The second round of BlizzCon 2011 tickets are going on sale this evening in just a few hours at 10pm EDT / 7pm PDT. The first round went down last Saturday morning as planned, and tickets sold out in just a matter of minutes (technically, the queue for ticket sales was filled in less than a second). This demand is extra surprising, especially considering that ticket prices to the annual Irvine, CA-based fan convention went up this year to $175 a piece. (more)

How is this possible? Remarkable StarCraft II papercraft

Crafter and presumed sorcerer "Constable" is responsible for these face-meltingly dedicated paper models based on StarCraft II. My eyes are absolutely convinced these are toys, rather than the mere result of expert-level cutting and pasting. (more)

Wednesday, April 13, 2011 6:42:37 AM GMT
A little company called Blizzard Entertainment will be having another of its annual fan conventions this coming October 21st and 22nd in Anaheim, California. I hear they are popular events for which one would want to purchase their tickets early as they tend to sell out quickly. To that end, Blizzard has announced that tickets will be going on sale next month on two separate days. (more)

Blizzard releases three official StarCraft 2 mods

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2417 days, 23 hours, 22 minutes ago
Friday, April 08, 2011 8:24:45 AM GMT
Blizzard has finally released three of the four official StarCraft 2 mods it announced at BlizzCon last year -- though, the one that didn't make the cut might surprise you. Players can now download Aiur Chef, which might possibly be the world's first cooking/RTS title; Starjeweled, a gem-swapping puzzler with a few light strategy elements thrown in for good measure; and Left 2 Die, in which players build up their base and train units to defend it when hordes of infected Terran come to play at night.

Based on a job listing on Gamasutra, it appears that the console version of Diablo 3 has received a green light from Activision Blizzard.
