Blizzard just published the patch notes for version 1.0.5 of Diablo III and boy, is this going to be a huge update. They’re adding a new Monster Power system, a new high level character event called Infernal Machine, and they’ve made hundreds of fixes and balance changes.
This might just be enough of a paradigm shift to get me back into the game.
Are you one of the six people who still play World of WarCraft? Wondering what the Mists of Pandaria expansion, which releases on Tuesday, adds to the game? Wonder no more.
If nothing else, the next World of WarCraft expansion has a gorgeous cinematic trailer.
This is popular YouTube user boogie2988 reacting to Blizzard’s internal network hack this week. (Note: This is him “in character” as a lunatic he calls “Francis”.)
Everything about this video is fucking amazing. Best rant ever recorded.
Blizzard revealed today in an entry on the official Diablo III blog that the next patch, version 1.0.4, will once again make significant changes to the game – including a lot of adjustments aimed at improving the overall experience for people who’ve already beaten the game.
Expect changes to classes, stat formulas, drop rates, Legendary items, co-op, and more!
Blizzard just announced that their internal network has been breached by an unknown hacker or group of hackers. Their security team hasn’t found any evidence to indicate that any of their financial data was compromised, however if you have a Battle.net account you’d really ought to change both your password and your security questions immediately as a precaution.
Blizzard has finally integrated the popular character profiles feature first implemented with World of WarCraft into Diablo III. (The feature was promised at launch.)
To view your profile on the Battle.net website log in, select your Diablo III username from the drop-down box in the upper right corner of the page, and then click on the “View Profile” link.
Blizzard just patched up a nasty exploit in Diablo III that allowed any player with a high level Wizard to turn invincible simply by casting Teleport followed quickly by Archon.
The glitch was first reported this morning by a user on the game’s official forums, however the developers took until approximately 9:00pm Pacific time tonight to fix it.
Obviously, this has serious ramifications for the Diablo III “real money” auction house. There’s no word from Blizzard on how (or if) they plan to address that particular issue.
Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime addressed a wide range of concerns Diablo III players have been expressing on the game’s forums over the past few months in a long post today. It’s an open letter style post covering a wide range of topics – everything from the botched launch to plans for new max-level content and the PvP we were promised.
If you own the game, this is absolutely worth reading.
Bad news for World of WarCraft fans: Spider-Man trilogy director Sam Raimi confirmed in a Comic-Con interview that he is no longer attached to the project – and it’s unclear who will replace him at this point. In fact, Blizzard hasn’t said much of anything about the project.
Personally, I hope this gets canceled. Nothing good can come of a WarCraft movie.
