Entries in Diablo III (20)
Blizzard Entertainment created quite the buzz when they released Diablo III last May. Since then, many fans have bailed on the name because of the current content and game functions. The game developers have done their best to keep up with requests from the public (more leveling, better items, more content) but it seems like one of the most important subjects has yet to be released. Dueling with other players (or lack thereof) seems to be one of the largest complaints from players across the globe.
Beta testing videos and rumors have bounced around on forums and the internet but the game developers have finally released an official update/statement on the subject (http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/8163085/?utm_source=internal&utm_medium=launcher&utm_campaign=d3&utm_content=news-textlink). For the players who have abandoned the game, they will soon realize that the game developers will deliver what they want. Players forget that most games start somewhere and then additions and improvements come with patches and expansion releases. Like many games, users come and go but when Diablo III is sure to spark the public's attention when the PVP system is released.
Yes, we are still alive over hear at Gameslave HQ, and we even managed to survive the holidays. So now that the chaos is mostly over I have taken a few moments to collect my thoughts about 2012. This has been a good year for gaming. We have had some great games and some fun controversies (as fun as they could be). Unfortunately we have also some of the most ridiculous things from people that just don't know better. What were some of my favorites this year? Well hold your horses and I will tell you.
Evil has been dealt a serious blow this day. Heros have ventured forth to both Hell and Heaven in their journey to destroy all seven Lords of Hell, and they succeeded. But now that the journey has been completed what were the costs of evil’s destruction? As usual this entry of Game Over will have a number if spoilers in it, so should you be brave enough you can delve forth, otherwise finish the game and then come back.
My apologies, but I am a few days late on this podcast (story of my life). But I have manged to get the podcast edited and posted.

This really did not come as a surprise to me, or just about any one else, but Diablo III has broken the record for PC game sales in a 24 hour period. In the first 24 hours of the game being on sale they sold 3.5 million copies. This number doesn't include the 1.2 million copies that people got with their World of Warcraft annual pass subscription. That means approximately 4.7 million people were ready to play on day 1. Over the next week that number grew to 6.4 million users. Congratulations in the record Blizzard, and in being able to have so many bugs at launch and still have people love you.
