Reaper of Souls - Live on Consoles Today

by Malon on

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls is now available on consoles. While the original game has been around on the Playstation and Xbox since last September, the new Ultimate Evil Edition includes both the original and the expansion. It can be played now on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One (the poor little Wii U appears to be suffering from its reputation as a young person’s console here). The PS4 and Xbox One editions can look forward to ongoing patch updates, while all console owners will be able to move existing characters to the UEE – even if their original game is on a different platform. A platform-specific perk – still hoping for it to arrive on PC! – is the change to Massacre and Destruction bonuses, to give perks rather than XP. These range from movement speed to resource regen and much, much higher amounts of experience than the small amounts seen on the ...

Build 18716: Garrison Updates Galore

by Crow on

First up, an apology: between the speed at which Blizzard has been updating the beta build and the rapid-fire nature of the changes taking place, I felt that trying to deliver the same degree of analysis as each build brought more new crazy stuff was too much to do in too little time. Second up, fair warning: as I’m writing this, the beta servers have gone offline to push a new build. I want to use this opportunity to bring everyone up to speed with where garrisons were as of this morning, with the expectation that new information will be coming very shortly on its heels. Let’s get started: Small Buildings On the profession buildings track, it seems like stuff is still highly in flux. The NPC crafters are still a little buggy, and some of the building functions themselves (the disenchanting doodad at the Enchanting building still doesn’t work) but work orders for many ...

 

Construct Quarter Walkthrough

Episode 24: Construct Quarter Walkthrough Twizz and Studder cover the Construct Quarter as well as do the Warrior and Priest class challenges.  We also talk about the new cards and what other cards/decks they would combo well with!...

As a parting shot at this year’s gamescom in Cologne, SteelSeries has announced an exclusive mouse and mousepad combo for Heroes of the Storm. Based off the Sensei  design, the mouse will sport three lighting zones, unlimited gaming profile storage via SteelSeries Engine 3 and a tunable CPI range up to 5700. It’ll set you back $69.99 USD. And if you’re in the dark about what CPI is, SteelSeries has a helpful explanation: tl;dr, high CPI means your mouse moves more with less actual movement of the device, and being able to tune it to your preference on the mouse itself lets you very finely control your sensitivity. In addition, a Heroes-branded iteration of the QcK Mousepad will be available for $14.99 USD. Both products are slated to show up later this year, and when we know a street date, we’ll let you know. You can, of course, go straight to the source. Read the ...

Warlords Event Report and Pictures!

by djtyrant on

Blizzard invited the community to visit Los Angeles at the Act Hotel theater and watch the premier of the Warlords of Draenor cinematic and get a release date for the latest World of WarCraft Expansion. For reaction on the video’s revealed today, make sure to check out Crow’s reaction from this morning. We arrived at around 7:15am, a good 75 minutes before we’d be let in so we joined the already big line and waited and conversed with the others around us about WoW, PvP, etc. This is one of the few events you get to really geek out with fellow geeks and attendees. It really reminded me of a mini BlizzCon of sorts or a launch party, which made it better! After waiting sometime, we were able to get wristbands that the Blizzard staff handed out to guarantee us a seat within the theater. According to some people I talked ...

Episode 27: Warlords of Draenor levelling speed, Last week, we mentioned that the release date for Warlords was going to debut on Thursday. Too bad we ran out of time and couldn’t get around to discussing what our predictions were! When do you think the expansion will drop? With the beta becoming more and more polished with every build, Will wanted to take a look at the approximately levelling speed going from level 90 to 100. How hard do you plan on levelling? Would you rather take your time and enjoy the sights and sounds the leveling experience has to offer or would you rather blitz to level 100 and get a taste of the end game? Contest details You still have a few more days before we give away five keys for the Warlords of Draenor beta! Last week on August 3rd, we sent a tweet out from The Edge account ...
