Diablo III

Diablo III director moving on to new project at Blizzard

Hopefully one that's less stressful

After seven years of working on Diablo III, game director Jay Wilson has announced his decision to work elsewhere within Blizzard. In a forum post, he writes that "I've reached a point creatively where I'm looking forward to working on something new," reflecting on the experience as "one of the most challenging and rewarding periods of my life."

As for the state of the ever-changing game, "We have lots of things planned for the future, and those plans will carry forward as normal," he explains. "I also won't be abandoning the team, and will remain available to them during the transition period while we determine who will take over duties as game director. To that point, you shouldn't be surprised if you see a job posting for a game director on Diablo III, as we want to make sure we explore every opportunity to find the best possible leadership for the project. We're looking forward to finding this person and hearing what kind of fresh ideas they can bring to the table."

Wilson continues, saying: "While we're not perfect, we try to make the best decisions we can with the information and knowledge we have at the time. That doesn't mean we always make the right decisions, but if we made a mistake then I feel we've made an exceptional effort to correct it. This is what you can always count on from Blizzard: that we will stand by our games and make every effort to continually improve them over time."

The ultimate waifu has been decided scientifically. There is no need to participate in the waifu wars any longer. (I won't tell you who it is until I make my own post of course)

I'm starting to get really excited for the approach of the new FE games! I'm going to revisit Awakening. Are any of the DLCs worth it at all? (AKA what's the deal with the Future Past DLC?)

Downloading Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. It feels a little weird to be installing a game on the Vita that isn't porn, if I'm being perfectly honest.

There's gonna be enough copies of both Fire Emblem: Birthright and Fire Emblem: Conquest that I shouldn't really feel the need to preorder them at Best Buy, right? I want to get both versions (I buy physical only) and I'm worried they won't have enough.

First Electric Playground and Reviews on the Run, now GameTrailers. Some people just want to watch the world burn. If you excuse me, I'm going to go cry and weep in a corner.

GameTrailers just announced on Facebook they're shutting down. It's a damn shame, since I rather liked them, despite not agreeing with a lot of what they've said. Best of luck to everyone who worked there.
