Let's all watch the Overwatch voice actors goof off

There won't be a remaster for the original Warcraft

I'm not one for needless remasters of titles that you can still buy. To me, they almost make me feel stupid for investing so much money and faith in a developer. The Uncharted remaster, especially, is just plain better than the originals, n...   read

Diablo III director: 'Creating a carbon copy of the D2 Necromancer would be cheating'

Blackheart's Revenge is a perfect example of what Heroes of the Storm Brawls should be

Brawls are basically fresh out of the oven for Heroes of the Storm, but they've already been pretty divisive. First up was the Punisher arena, which assigned random heroes to each player, and was generally very well received. Rounds were qu...   read

Blizzard admits mistakes were made with World of Warcraft's last expansion, is looking ahead with Legion

Heroes of the Storm devs happy with Brawls so far, will 'keep making them indefinitely'
