Heroes of the Storm: Garden of Terror coming soon

I’ve been enjoying my time with Heroes of the Storm so far. I honestly think its the perfect place for beginners to get into MOBA’s, yet fun enough to keep veterans interested. There are already a variety of maps available, but Blizzard are releasing another one soon; the Garden of Terror.

Hearthstone Naxxramas expansion goes live next week

Hearthstone is dangerously addictive for a game that you can only play with other people. Sometimes ranked play or even drafting in the arena can be a frustrating experience, which is why the (Nik)Naxxramas expansion is just so darn exciting. Single-player content is finally coming to Hearthstone, and we’ll get our first taste early next week.

Blizzard show off new skins for Heroes of the Storm

CHOO CHOO! All aboard the MOBA train! Every developer seems to be interested in the genre lately. One company, Blizzard, have been working on their own iteration for a good few years now. Heroes of the Storm may still be in a technical alpha testing phase, but that hasn’t stopped them from adding cosmetics to the in-game store.

China receive pass to Sanctuary: Diablo III to be released in the east

Diablo III might have had a mixed reception from die hard fans on release, but its expansion, Reaper of Souls improved the game by a large margin. Its annoyingly addictive with all its demon killing and odd legendary drop here and there. China may be missing out on the latest journey through Sanctuary, but not for long! Blizzard are looking to bring the clicky action to the east.

Bad at StarCraft II? Don’t cheat, you will be banned!

Starcraft II is probably the only game I have ever played that makes me stress a little bit too much. Why you ask? Oh, no reason… I just have to expand my base, make sure my resource income is up to speed, build units, attack the enemy, make sure the enemy doesn’t destroy me, tech up my units, expand some more, restock my army numbers, and… GAH TOO MUCH! There is some serious skill required to be great at the game, resulting in some inevitable cheating. Blizzard have always monitored unusual activity, but they detail exactly how they manage cheating in their latest blog post.

Rob Pardo departs Blizzard

If you’ve been a Blizzard fan for the last decade and a half, then you can thank Rob Pardo and his crew for various great games from that developer. Pardo was the lead designer on various games within the StarCraft, Diablo and WarCraft libraries. And after 17 years at Blizzard, Pardo is calling it a day.

Heroes of the Storm: Customise with the Talent System

MOBA’s are a strange thing. They are hard to learn, difficult to master, yet, they remain mindlessly addictive. I do personally think the market is on its way to being saturated with maybe just a few too many extra offerings being developed, but Heroes of the Storm is one in particular entry in the genre that I cant wait to get some hands on time with.

Hearthstone’s Curse of Naxxramas arrives in July

By now, at least everyone around you has had a taste of the free-to-play hit card game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. It’s a game that did the unthinkable, and that’s create a community that wasn’t just happy to join, but actually throw cash at Blizzard for more cards. Hearthstone expands soon with a single-player addition. It’ll be out rather soon actually.

Hearthstone to have a $250 000 pot for Blizzcon 2014

HEARTHSTONE! By now, pretty much everybody has experienced Blizzard’s ludicrously addictive card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. It’s got the right balance now, it has an audience and it’s going to have plenty of cash on offer in time for Blizzcon this year. Poker, eat your heart out.

Think you’re good at Hearthstone? Prove it

So my latest addiction is Blizzard's new card game, Hearthstone, and while I’m pretty useless at it I love how Blizzard handles the rankings so I am at least given a chance while I sit in my level 19 pit of squalor.

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is out on iPad

There’s a long weekend coming up, and some travelling to do on the horizon no doubt. Need some entertainment, and happen to be tired of reaching three stars on veteran in Kingdom Rush? Well good news, because Blizzard’s insanely addictive Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is now out globally for the iPad.

HearthStone expands with the Curse of Naxxramas

If you haven’t tried it out yet, you’re missing on some damn good fun in the Blizzard card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. It’s got a great pace, looks great and is easy to learn. That, and it’s completely free, and is structured in such a way that you actually want to spend real cash on it. And now, Hearthstone (HEARTHSTONE!) is getting bigger.

Diablo 3 patch 2.04 changes up the classes

I’ve just recently started playing Diablo 3, on console. And I’m freakin’ loving it. It’s a great game, and beautifully balanced and it has me excited for the console release of Reaper of Souls. PC gamers already have that experience. And they’re also getting a new patch to rebalance the game.

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls has sold millions

I’m pretty late to the Diablo 3 party. I only just picked up the game for Xbox 360, but I have to admit, I’m having a blast playing as monk with fists of iron. As usual, I am way beyond fashionably late, as the expansion is out for PC. And it has sold plenty so far.

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Review – Don’t fear the reaper

Its finally here, the expansion to the stupidly addictive clickiness that Blizzard gave to us nearly two years ago!  I won't ignore the fact that some of you likely had your issues with the game, whether it be of the error 37 kind or just simply a hatred for something it did or didn't do to meet your expectations.  You may be wondering why in hell you should now consider paying the price of a full game for an expansion. The simple answer is this: Reaper of Souls takes what you hated about Diablo III, fixes them, then throws in a whole lot of extra content to keep you busy for many, many hours.
