Comments Off on The “Problem” With Being a Blizzard Fanboy

With each passing Blizzcon I attend, the Anaheim Convention Center feels more and more like my gaming Mecca. It is here that, despite only really knowing the handful of friends I came with, I know that I am with my people. I feel that it is safe to assume that Blizzard has found a way… Read More »

Before we look at the randomness offered in the expansion we should instead look at what we get from… Read More »

Traditional and tabletop games have recently started to hit critical mass. The wildly successful cult-hit Settlers of Catan, for example, isn’t just for isolated college dorms anymore but is openly played at bars and coffee shops.

My previous Gaming rEvolutions article detailed the emergence of the zombie in video games. These beasties began as one of a cast of thousands of minions bent on consuming all in their path. They then took center stage as the main villain in later survival horror gaming. All of the previous game types are still… Read More »

The last console generation was a weird thing. Everyone was focused on having the best console, and by that I mean Sony was sitting on its pile of PS2 money and cackling while the Gamecube sold…ok? The Xbox struggled to not be a $300 Halo box. There were also a mountain of multi-platform releases, and… Read More »

Comments Off on Most Likely to Cause Marital Strife: Diablo III

For many, Diablo III was hotly anticipated and closely embraced. For many, but not for all. While it may be great to spend hours delving through dungeons in an endless quest for better loot and a stronger character, Diablo III doesn’t just encourage or reward people who play the game to the exclusion of other… Read More »

Comments Off on Diablo III is Kind of a Big Deal…Like 6.3 Million Big!

So apparently a lot of people got Diablo III. About 6.3 million as of May 22nd, according to Blizzard. According to my math, at the $59.99 price point this means Blizzard now has all the money. Six million and climbing may also serve to explain the glut of day one issues plaguing the service, as… Read More »
