Blizzard starting over with Diablo III Team Deathmatch mode

Blizzard starting over with Diablo III Team Deathmatch mode

We've heard a number of complaints about Diablo III over the last few months, and the lack of a PvP mode seems to be one of the most common. Blizzard was touting Diablo III's PvP mode long before the game even released, but we're now seven months out from launch and there's no PvP mode to speak of. It seems like there won't be one for some time yet either, as Diablo III lead designer Jay Wilson said that the team is starting over on the game's Team Deathmatch mode.

Advocacy group threatens legal action over Diablo III always-on DRM

Advocacy group threatens legal action over Diablo III always-on DRM

Diablo III has attracted a healthy amount of controversy since launch, with most of that controversy focused around the game's always-online requirement. Blizzard's announcement of the always-on DRM was met with considerable outcry from fans, and it caused plenty of problems on launch day, as Blizzard's Diablo III servers repeatedly crumbled under the stress of so many logins. It was enough to send any gamer into a rage, and now a German consumer advocacy group called the Federation of Consumer Organizations is looking to do something about it.

Diablo III is the Worst Game Ever Made

Diablo III is the Worst Game Ever Made

I have played Diablo III for dozens of hours. I have beaten the normal difficulty level with one of my “Heroes,” and I have made solid progress with a variety of characters representing each class.

Diablo III “Starter Edition” rules implemented

In the game Diablo 3 week it appears that Blizzard Entertainment is implementing (or the public is just realizing the existence of) a "Starter Edition" rule which has users new to the game locked down in several areas for 72 hours after they first start up the game.

Diablo III patch 1.0.3 keeps the town safe

Though it's been a given that once you're in Tristram or any number of other towns inside the game in the past, Diablo III has had to be patched to keep the beasts at bay. Today's patch includes an extra portal at each end of the bridge from New Tristram to The Weeping Hollow in order to keep citizens of the town safe as well as to make it a bit easier for people to exit into the field of battle. Too bat everyone can't have the staff helicoptering powers of the Monk or this wouldn't be a problem!

Today is the first day that users will be able to toss real hard-earned cash at virtual items in the game Diablo III online. This game has for some years now been teased to have a real-money auction house (in addition to its more basic virtual gold auction house), and upon the game's launch earlier this year, it's been the most widely anticipated feature not to be included with the initial build. Today when you head online to Diablo III you'll more than likely see an update to your software and a couple of new user agreements before you're allowed to play.
