Vicarious Visions move to Blizzard means remastered Diablo, Starcraft, Warcraft

The folks at Vicarious Visions will soon need to switch up their digital business cards. Back in the year 2005, the developer brand and its developers were acquired by the folks at Activision. In the year 2008, Acivision merged with Blizzard, forming Acivision Blizzard.

It looks like another Diablo 4 class is being revealed at BlizzConline

Believe it or not, Diablo 4 was revealed just over a year ago, even though BlizzCon 2019 feels like it's many years in the past after the nightmare that 2020 has been.

Is your favorite online game as fragile as Fortnite?

Is your favorite online game as fragile as Fortnite?

In the past couple of weeks, we've experienced the unraveling of a delicately-spun web of support that's required to keep the game Fortnite afloat.

Now it's become a more solid understanding that BlizzCon 2020 will, indeed, be cancelled outright.

Minecraft Dungeons needs one feature that’d change the whole game

Minecraft Dungeons needs one feature that’d change the whole game

I expected Minecraft Dungeons to be like a LEGO-esque iteration of the classic dungeon crawler game Diablo. I expected that we'd get a kid-friendly blast from the past. What we got instead was a surprisingly fresh take on the combination of the game format and the Miencraft brand. And there's a lot of room for growth. All the game needs is one update.

Diablo 4 reveal headlines BlizzCon 2019

As expected, Blizzard opened BlizzCon 2019 with the reveal of Diablo 4. Just like earlier leaks suggested, Diablo 4 sees the rise of a new Prime Evil: Lilith, the daughter of Mephisto. The game seems to be a return to form for the Diablo series, as Blizzard promises a game that is a lot darker in tone. Indeed, the two trailers Blizzard debuted today got that message across loud and clear, as they definitely aren't warm and inviting.
