    • Diablo III 2.1.2 Changes Goblins, Rifts, Hubs

      By Ben Barrett on November 10th, 2014 at 8:00 am. Diablo was the awkward child of this BlizzCon. With WoW’s expansion coming soon and StarCraft’s Legacy of the Void now being shown off, Diablo is the only currently-released game without a paid update on the horizon. I figured another expansion would be announced this weekend, but between a new game, movie news and the like, ...

  • ‘World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor’ Review

    When an expansion like Warlords of Draenor comes along and adds 10 levels of content and a new end-game experience to an MMO that already has a decade of dungeons, quests, and raids to explore; there is obviously going to be a lot to absorb.

  • Of Course, Warlords of Draenor Has A Dragon Ball Easter Egg

    … We knew WoW devs liked Dragon Ball, but Talador, one of Warlords of Draenor's new zones, is home to an entire scene from Dragon Ball Z. Near Shattrath City you can find two really strange orcs.
