How the 'new' Diablo III brought me back in photo
How the 'new' Diablo III brought me back in
by Patrick Hancock

I never thought I would actually say this, but I am enjoying myself while playing Diablo III. Keep in mind this is without Reaper of Souls, and is entirely about the newest patch -- Loot 2.0. After spending countless hours playing Diablo II and its expansion, my friends and I were incredibly excited for the next installment in the series.

And then I played it.

I could not have been more disappointed. I felt that the inclusion of the Auction Houses fueled many of the other game design decisions (drop rate, loot rarity) and made the game incredibly frustrating. I spent a healthy chunk of time going through the game’s campaign and leveling up my Witch Doctor, but eventually uninstalled the game with no intention to return.

And yet here I am, actually looking forward to playing more Diablo III.

Blizzard releases Blackthorne for free on Battle.net photo
Blizzard releases Blackthorne for free on Battle.net
by Conrad Zimmerman

While Blizzard is primarily known as the developer of Warcraft and Starcraft titles today, I have a deep affection for the games produced in the company's early years. Today, I'm a pretty happy camper, as one of those classic titles has been released for free on Blizzard's Battle.net service, Blackthorne.

A weird mix of fantasy and science-fiction, Blackthorne is a 2D platforming game where the deposed prince of an alien planet, hidden on Earth at childhood twenty years prior, returns to his world to save it from the despotic monster who now rules. It's a bit like the original Prince of Persia with a sawed-off shotgun in gameplay.

You can try Blackthorne out yourself starting today by going to your Battle.net account and acquiring it from the client downloader.
