The Diablo Book of Tyrael and Cain are great companions for diehards

Diablo III might not have had the best storyline, even when it comes to dungeon crawlers, but there was a lot happening behind the scenes. There's a 20 year history there, and the narrative has been continuing on since 1996. If yo...   read

Diablo III is getting three more difficulty levels

I remember the pain (read: amazingness) of Diablo III's Inferno mode, pre-nerf. Solo I managed to make it to the final boss of Act 2 before they nerfed it, but I did like the difficulty reworks in general. 2.4.2 looks to be more of the good...   read
