Last year, I got a chance to hit the BlizzCon scene and snap lots of photos. And it was awesome. It may just be my favourite gaming convention that I’ve ever attended, a two day ride with a great atmosphere, games and even better people attending. I wasn’t there this year, but fortunately frequent commenter Brian Murphy was. And he snapped plenty of pictures for you guys.

There’s no denying that Diablo 3: Reaper Of Souls is a tad bit more casual on console. And that’s a good thing. Hell, it’s fantastic, as the different approach made for a better game overall. That’s going to change slightly however, as the game is about to get patched up to match the recent PC additions. So prepare to say goodbye to your loved ones as you descend into hell once again.

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.

You’ve been wondering just when Blizzard would release Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition onto consoles. Well wonder no more, as it’ll be out on August 19 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It’s Diablo 3, and the Reaper of Souls together for the first time, and it feels oh so good. Prepare to go back to hell Nephalem scum.

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.

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.

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.

Everyone who knows me knows how much I dig cosplay, especially when I dress up like Bane in order to talk to the Mormons who go door to door every week in my neighbourhood. There’s a lot of great cosplay out there. And then there is truly magnificent works of art that walk past you. There’s only way to describe this particular example: Demonic.

First created by Bram Stoker for Dracula, Abraham Van Helsing in synonymous with monster and vampire hunters. The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing follows the young Van Helsing, son of the legendary Abraham Van Helsing. In this way we get to journey into a world of monsters, magic and strange technology without the burden of the established character.

If there was one game that convinced me to get a Playstation 4, it had to be Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls. Jamming the game with fellow writers and getting my couch co-op on was just too much fun. And yes, I did click around on PC as well. Blizzard’s Andrew Chambers, John Hight and Matthew Berger had plenty to say about the game. So stay awhile and listen.

There’s a ton of love for all things Blizzard at Blizzcon, and nothing sums that up better than seeing those fans create some extraordinary costumes. From Night Elves to Terran Spectres, there was a wide variety of cosplay present. And it was all so damn cool.

If there’s one thing that Diablo is known for, it’s that it has some bastard-tough enemies to deal with. Think your +5 Ring of badassitude is going to save you from a Demonic World Smasher Overlord? Ha, think again. Diablo 3 had plenty of those killers lurking around. And its expansion, Reaper of Souls is upping the kill-ante with some new creatures.
