Diablo 3: Eternal Collection – The Verdict

Diablo 3: Eternal Collection – The Verdict

This is the fourth time that I’ve reviewed Diablo 3. Way back when in 2012, I took a look at the base game, a couple of years later I focused on the Reaper of Souls update and finally, I reviewed the PlayStation 4 release. Now, I take on the Switch version with the Eternal Collection.

Diablo 3 – Starting the New Season

Diablo 3 – Starting the New Season

When Diablo 3 first launched, I really enjoyed it and moved past a lot of criticism that came from some of the die hard Diablo fans. When Reaper of Souls came out, I again had a great time and started to dabble in the adventure mode. But it is only now, with the launch of Season 4 in the game, that I am checking out this new way of playing the game that seemingly everyone else has already worked through during the previous three seasons.

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition – The Verdict

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition – The Verdict

When Diablo III came out on PC, I played it and thoroughly enjoyed it. When Reaper of Souls came out, I played it and thought that it refined and improved the game a hell of a lot. There have been further updates to the PC version recently which have added ladders. I haven’t checked out the latest set of PC updates, but that is because I’ve been busy with the Ultimate Evil Edition which came out on the new-gen consoles…

Getting Ready to Reap Some Souls

Getting Ready to Reap Some Souls

It is strange to think that is was way back in June 2012 that I reviewed Diablo III, strange as it just goes to show how time flies. It also means that I hadn’t touched the game since the summer of 2012, at least until this past weekend when I started to gear myself up for the upcoming expansion, Reaper of Souls. What brought me back ahead of the expansion? The promise of a limited time only 50% XP boost did the trick.

Our Week in Games – Week 73

Our Week in Games – Week 73

Disaster stuck this week as my Nexus 7 tablet encountered a problem where I can’t even turn it out without the loading screen looping for ever and eternity. It is only a small problem in the grand scheme of things, but it makes me realise that we haven’t had any major Red Ring of Death scenarios with the new consoles just yet. They’ve been out for a few months now, but they seem to have avoided any mass plague of hardware issues. I think that is something for the games industry to be proud of.

While you ponder the horrors of the Red Ring of Death, why not hit the break and check out the latest Our Week in Games…

Diablo 3 Sells A Metric Hell-load – Fastest Selling PC Game Ever

Diablo 3 Sells A Metric Hell-load – Fastest Selling PC Game Ever

Blizzard have kindly informed us that Diablo 3 is the new all-time best selling PC game of all time after selling 3.5 million copies within the first 24 hours of its release.

Hell is in the Hacking: Diablo 3 Woes Continue

Hell is in the Hacking: Diablo 3 Woes Continue

After a number of server outages and sporadic connection issues faced by players of Blizzard’s click-and-kill opus Diablo 3, a new monster has raised it’s ugly head – the hacker. Over the past few days, Blizzard’s forums have been swamped by players claiming to have lost gold, items and characters. Even more worryingly, a number of those affected are claiming to have an authenticator attached to their accounts – a security measure that hypothetically renders an account unhackable by any normal means….

Diablo 3 – My First Hour

Diablo 3 – My First Hour

I got my hands on Diablo 3 earlier today, around 3pm GMT, and unlike many, I installed and got into the game without any problems at all. I was quite surprised at the lack of problems considering the many issues that people were having in the early hours of launch, and are still having tonight according to what I am seeing on Twitter. So, in the peaceful British May afternoon, I got to spend about an hour with Diablo 3,…

Diablo III – Newbie Introduction Video

Diablo III – Newbie Introduction Video

Diablo III, Blizzard’s monster dungeon-crawling RPG is launching at midnight tonight. Somehow we haven’t actually talked about Diablo at all yet. Better late than never though, as after the jump there is a new trailer which will introduce you briefly to the different classes in the game and the various Battle.net options that will be in the game. Personally, I am rather looking forward to Torchlight 2 a bit more, but I am sure Diablo won’t disappoint.
