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

Try to count the things that can kill you in No Man's Sky
