The History of Blizzard: Vikings, Crafts, and One Mad Gorilla

Blizzard's name is an aptly-chosen one; this titanic game company is famous for its glacial development pace. New Blizzard projects usually have lengthy gaps between them, with release dates rarely getting mentioned until the product is finished and ready to ship. While it can be frustrating for fans to have to wait interminably long, this relaxed speed brings with it a creative atmosphere and quality games— as Shigeru Miyamoto so famously said, "A delayed game is eventually good. A bad game is bad forever." Overwatch marks the newest entry in the Blizzard library (and their first all-new intellectual property in over a decade), so let's take a moment to go back through the brightest points in the history of these legendary game-makers to better understand why their newest game garners such eager anticipation.

Diablo III Vs. Torchlight 2: Which Dungeon Should You Crawl?

by Alex Langley August 26, 2013 @ 10:01 AM
Diablo III’s first expansion, Reaper of Souls, was just announced at Gamescom this week, which means more character classes, more dungeons, and, most importantly, more loot! Ever since the first Diablo hit the scene in the late ‘90s, the franchise has changed the way players scour dungeons for treasure. But the Big D hasn’t been without plenty of clones and competitors, with perhaps no franchise managing to capture and reconfigure that Diablo magic like Torchlight. Given that both Torchlight 2 and Diablo III arrived within the last year, it only seems fitting that we pit the two dungeon-crawlers against each other in a battle for loot supremacy.
