One life to live: Prize for your Demise
Season 2 is only a matter of hours away. New characters are about to be born and in Hardcore it’s only a matter of time before they are taken away. As I mentioned in my last column, it’s with season two that we have a contest to coincide with your untimely departure from Sanctuary. For […]
Vote: More Reaper of Souls Six-Piece Sets?
During yesterday’s Tavern Talk developer live chat, the guys mentioned something they talked about at Blizzcon last year; improving the old Diablo 3 five piece class sets and adding another item to each (technically, IK is already 6, Inna’s, Natalya’s, Tal Rasha’s, and Zunimassas are 5) to make them comparable with the newer, more powerful […]

Blizzard at G-Star 2012

The GStar convention went off this weekend in Seoul Korea, and while we didn’t get any new Diablo III info from the show (as we did in 2011), since Blizzard’s presence seems to be entirely focused on green-lit Pandaland demo areas, they did host a pretty good cosplay contest.

Better yet, Bashiok, (AKA “Uncle-B” to his Asian fans) is representing Blizzard at G-Star and during some other ongoing Asian press tour events, and he set up a Weibo account for the duration. Weibo is basically Chinese version of Twitter, and Bashiok’s been using it to post amazing new secret info about the Diablo III expansion!

Ha ha ha. Had your hopes up for a millisecond there. No, actually he’s just taking pictures of his dinner and making jokes about his terrible facial hair.

Most people’s mustaches aren’t registered voters. But most people aren’t me.

Ah Bashy, how we miss him in the Diablo 3 community…? Thanks to DrazzlibKun for the links.
