Path Of Exile Developer Grinding Gear Recruits Original Diablo Designer

Well, that’s one way to give your action-RPG a shot in the arm! Not that Path of Exile from Kiwi studio Grinding Gear Games needs help — it’s managed pretty darn well so far — but to get one of the fathers of the modern hack’n’slash David Brevik on board is quite the coup no matter how you cut it.

Diablo III's Skeleton King Is Ready To Pound You Into The Floor

Dayshot: His Majesty King Leoric of Khanduras was already a decently badarse-looking boss in Diablo III, especially considering his lowly status as the game’s first unique boss. Well, here, he’s on a whole other level.

Blizzard Hit By Multiple DDoS Attacks

Players couldn’t log into games like World of Warcraft and Diablo III for several hours last night thanks to a series of DDoS attacks that flooded Blizzard’s servers, the developer said. Blizzard says they have since thwarted the problem, though some login issues could linger this morning.

Ten Isometric Action RPGs Worth Trying

They have been called many things over the years. Isometric RPGs, hack’n’slash RPGs, ARPGs, Diablo clones. But one thing is certain: They wouldn’t exist if Diablo didn’t come out in 1996. Diablo and its sequels spawned a whole catalogue of isometric action RPGs.

Easter Eggs are now a staple of video game design, so to help celebrate the long weekend let’s look back on some of the best Easter Eggs ever made.

Diablo Boss Azmodan Returns To Heroes Of The Storm With Basketballs

Well, that’s certainly a skin that wouldn’t work in Diablo III, but is completely fine in the casual environment of Heroes of the Storm. Act III’s “Lord of Sin” from Diablo III now has a slam dunk-ready alternate, called… Azmodunk!

If Diablo's Deckard Cain Were In Heroes Of The Storm

Video: Deckard Cain might not be a powerful hero of the Blizzard universe, but still, Diablo‘s fan favourite NPC is one of the most wanted characters for Heroes of the Storm. Carbot made an awesome animation playing with the idea of what the wise old man could do in a MOBA.

Duriel, Scariest Of The Lesser Evils

Dayshot: Duriel, with his tiny-arse lair, slow-down aura and incredibly dangerous attacks, is an annoying Diablo II boss to fight. Now, thanks to this piece of fanart, he’s also terrifying to look at. Yay!
