Finally, the official date has been announced as to when tickets for BlizzCon will go up for sale. The lucky ones that will be making their way there can pick them up as of August 11th.
Just in case you've somehow forgotten, it will be October 10th and 11th at the Anaheim Convention Center which is located in Anaheim, CA. The tickets will be sold for $100 a piece, but there is hope for those that can't make it to the convention.
Diablo fans have finally gotten Diablo III and even now that they've gotten it, some still aren't happy. It would appear as if some fans would prefer the new Diablo to be no different from the first two graphics-wise. Which I understand, it's hard when one of your favorite games is altered. One great example of a new direction gone wrong is Doom 3. I still have the old Doom games on my computer, but I despise Doom 3.
When Blizzard decided to start work on Diablo III, one of the things they felt was important was to simplify the interface down to needing little more than a mouse. This of course added fuel to speculation that the game may see a console release. Thankfully Lead Designer Jay Wilson specifically touches on this matter.
Diablo II definitely ranks among my list of favorite games for the PC. There's just something about hacking and slashing my way through the minions of evil that I just can't get enough of. I'm pretty sure it's only been around a year since the last time I played it. Like many other fans of the series, I was disappointed long ago when it was stated that there would be no future Diablo titles. However, Blizzard has since changed their tune, as the third game in the series has been officially announced.
