The Diablo-Style Action-RPG That’s Helping Me Fall In Love With Warhammer 40K The Diablo-Style Action-RPG That’s Helping Me Fall In Love With Warhammer 40K

This week, action-RPG Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr came out of Early Access on Steam, the latest in a long line of incomprehensibly titled games inspired by the Warhammer miniatures series. It’s a decent spin on the kill/loot/explore formula popularized by Diablo, but what it’s especially good at is making…

The Best Cosplay From BlizzCon 2017 The Best Cosplay From BlizzCon 2017

Last year’s BlizzCon was one of the higlights of the cosplay calendar. BlizzCon 2017 was no different.

Someone Is Trying To Remake Diablo II In StarCraft II Someone Is Trying To Remake Diablo II In StarCraft II

For years, Blizzard faithful have been clamoring for a remake or remaster of Diablo II, and now that StarCraft’s remaster is fresh out of the hatchery, they’ve only gotten louder. One fan is trying to give them the next best thing.

Stolen Diablo Art Turns Up In The Weirdest Places Stolen Diablo Art Turns Up In The Weirdest Places

A few years back, games artist Toby Lewin had an image he drew for a Blizzard contest (above) go viral. You see it all over the internet these days, from posters to mouse pads, but this week it turned up in the real world on...a war memorial in the Ukranian capital Kiev.

How Blizzard Saved Diablo III From Disaster  How Blizzard Saved Diablo III From Disaster 

This is an excerpt from my upcoming book, BLOOD, SWEAT, AND PIXELS, which comes out on September 5 and tells the stories behind 10 different games including Diablo III, Uncharted 4, and Star Wars 1313. You can pre-order the book at your favorite bookstore.

Nintendo x Diablo Cosplay Was The Star Of Anime Expo Nintendo x Diablo Cosplay Was The Star Of Anime Expo

Anime Expo is usually home to some of the year’s best cosplay, and 2017 was no exception. While we’ll be providing a bigger roundup of the whole show next week, I wanted to go early with this incredible shoot featuring a Nintendo x Diablo crossover.

Diablo III's Necromancer Is The Best Spellcaster Yet

About an hour into taking Diablo 3’s new Necromancer class for a spin, I encountered a turgid, hulking monster called a Grotesque. I had already massacred several of the small bats preceding it, and by using my class ability Corpse Explosion, I did enough damage to the Grotesque for it to inflate and rupture. Out of…

Today, Diablo 3 added a Necromancer class to its morbid ranks. It’s a blast—and literally. “Corpse Explosion,” a callback to Diablo 2, does exactly what it says. When a Necromancer explodes some corpses to kill a monster, and then explodes that monster’s corpse to kill worms it hosts, you know you’re playing Diablo.

The Necromancer class comes to Diablo III on June 27. The Rise of the Necromancer DLC pack will be available for $14.99 on PC and consoles. A Diablo III: Eternal Collection will also be available on Xbox One and PS4, bundling the original game and the Necro update for $39.99.

Guy Speedruns Diablo II Without Attacking Anything

Perhaps my favorite thing about the speedrunning community is how often they find clever, ridiculous ways to play games. Take Diablo II. Instead of simply doing a quick run through Blizzard’s iconic action game, a man going by the handle DrCliche decided to blaze through the game without attacking anything. It is…

Diablo III Seasons Finally Come To Consoles Diablo III Seasons Finally Come To Consoles

Years after Diablo III’s seasons first started, they’re finally coming to consoles. Just as PC players begin clicking their way through the game’s 10th season, those who decided to go with the superior version of Diablo III will get to start seasonal characters on Friday, March 31.

It Stinks That Nobody Talks In Diablo III's Public Multiplayer It Stinks That Nobody Talks In Diablo III's Public Multiplayer

In Diablo III, a good deal of high level play revolves around entering farming runs with random strangers and marching through content to try and get the most items and gear in the shortest amount of time. It’s fun, but it’s disappointing that it seems to exist in a cone of silence.

Your Best Stories Of Getting Rescued In Video Games Your Best Stories Of Getting Rescued In Video Games

In video games, we’re used to being heroes, saving hapless innocents from villains, monsters, and their own demons. Sometimes, though, we need a hero to save us. Here are stories of players coming to each other’s rescue, not because they had to, but because they could.

Diablo 3 Prepared Me For The Anxieties of Planning My Wedding Diablo 3 Prepared Me For The Anxieties of Planning My Wedding

With pure luck and a crappy costume, I met my significant other at a sci-fi convention. Our relationship blossomed around our shared passion for nerdy things, and we got engaged at WonderCon. Thus started our next adventure: planning, and paying for, a wedding. Surprisingly, Diablo played a big role in the process.

Diablo III's Riff On The First Diablo Is More Homage Than Remake

Diablo III’s 2.3.4 update has hit the public test realm, giving PC players a chance to play through a 16-level retro dungeon packed with bosses from the 1996 original. It’s not quite a remake, but it hits all the right notes. Update: 2.3.4 is now live on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

World Of Warcraft Now Has A Secret Cow Level World Of Warcraft Now Has A Secret Cow Level

The cow level has been ensconced in gaming lore since the hoary old days of Diablo, when it was a ridiculous rumor, and Diablo II, when Blizzard gave it life. It’s a gag that evolved into a rallying cry, a reminder of good times long-passed. Now, as part of Diablo’s 20th anniversary, it’s been added to World of…

Couple Meets Online Playing Diablo, Gets Married Couple Meets Online Playing Diablo, Gets Married

Alvin Lau (a Crusader) and Alexis Loo (a Demon Hunter) met online while they were playing Diablo III. Their online friendship blossomed into a romance, and the pair got married last year, celebrating the whole thing with an elaborate Diablo-themed cosplay photo shoot.

King Leoric Cosplay Is Metal AF King Leoric Cosplay Is Metal AF

I love this Diablo King Leoric cosplay by Endryus Makdragon so much. Every time I cast my eyes over it half my brain says “yup, that’s Diablo”, while the other half goes “haha GWAR cosplay”.

Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance first appeared on the PS2 fifteen years ago today! Celebrate by watching Tony Jay voice a giant eyeball with tentacles and reliving the glory of one of the best Diablo clones available on console of all time.

Some Diablo III Announcements You May Have Missed Some Diablo III Announcements You May Have Missed

Despite all those silly rumors about Diablo 4, Blizzard has made it clear that they see Diablo III as a live game that they want to keep updating and expanding for quite some time to come. Over the weekend, they made that even more clear.
