Blizzard unfortunately opted for Mega Bloks instead of LEGO when it decided to produce a run of StarCraft and WarCraft themed toys. But that isn’t discouraging LEGO die-hards.
Builder Mark Stafford created this incredibly detailed Space Marine from StarCraft.
Blizzard just pushed out the 1.08 patch for Diablo III. It adds several nice new features to the game (“Identify All” – woo!), fixes bugs, tweaks class balance a bit, and throws in several new social features to enhance co-op play. You can read the patch notes right here.
Unfortunately, Blizzard inadvertently introduced a rather nasty – and easily exploitable – gold duplication exploit with the patch that they’re now scrambling to address with a hotfix.
Blizzard is once again sharing details about an upcoming Diablo III patch. This next one will bring the game up to version 1.08 and it makes a ton of improvements to co-op play.
Oh, and they’re finally adding an “Identify All” function. Fuck yeah.
Jay Wilson, former head of the Diablo III dev team, was quoted at GDC this week as saying that both the gold and “real money” auction houses have “really hurt the game”. In fact, he went on to say that, ”I think we would turn it off if we could.” Wow. That’s a bold statement.
I thought the “real money” auction house concept was a terrible idea from day one. I get a kick out of the fact that Blizzard actually thought it wouldn’t fuck up the balance of the game.
I’m kind of pissed about how awesome this port looks.
Blizzard is turning WarCraft into a digital trading card game called HearthStone: Heroes of WarCraft. It’s a micro-transaction based game. Because of course. God damn it, Blizzard.
Here’s a first look at the
cash grab PS3/PS4 port of Diablo III.
StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm was just released and already Blizzard is working on the third and final chapter, a Protoss-centric expansion called Legacy of the Void.
We can probably expect a launch sometime in late 2014 or early 2015.
Diablo III game designer Travis Day shared several interesting insights into a couple of the more significant changes that Blizzard plans to make to the game with the next patch.
To summarize his post, Blizzard will continue to focus on the endgame with 1.08. Wee!
Fuck the game. Blizzard really needs to just make a StarCraft movie.
