Via user PracticalBrush12 on the Diablo sub-reddit, who has a post history to back up the following claims, we have a little (unconfirmed) insight into what might be in store for Diablo IV. PracticalBrush12's post below:

  • Diablo 4 is actually going to look dark, gritty and gross - no more rainbow shiny bullshit this time! Locations are toned down, infrequently laid with corpses, wasteland, greyish deserts, cult caves surrounded by flesh, rotten crypts, marshes and bogs, plagued cities you name it. 
  • Cities are also seemingly much bigger, maybe even open? 
  • Characters now are able to ride horses (possibly other mounts), also there's contextual interaction with environment ? - climbing a wall Lost Ark style. 
  • Blood splatters look more like blood and not splashed jam too.
  • So far I can confirm 3 classes: mage (uses fire, ice and lightning so far), barbarian (swords, clubs, axes, kicks etc), and druid (lightning, wind, and transforming into beasts - so far bear and werewolf!).
  • Possibly there will be PvP from the start?. 4 player coop is there for sure.
  • All this game seems to be is a W I N K to the Diablo 2 fans, Lilith being the new diablo (she's covered in blood veil kinda), characters being shown sitting at a campfire as character selection, nitty gritty dark style that 2 was praised for, some skills also seem to be just taken from it and put in here (like sorceress' charged bolt). I'm interested and hope they don't fuck this up. The company is bad, but the game might not be this time.
  • No date yet too.. sorry.
Assuming all of this is true, I am personally happy to see Blizz taking Diablo back to its darker roots. Now, let's just hope they don't add sub fees or stupid amounts of microtransactions. That would be the end of the Diablo franchise for me.

The reviews are in before Pokemon Sword and Shield hits stores this Friday. Overall, if you're a huge Pokemon fan, things are looking pretty good. Larger outlets are claiming that while this installment of the Pokemon franchise doesn't innovate as much as they hoped it would, it is still a lot of fun and vastly expands our options for future Pokemon titles.

Patch 2.6.7 is now live for all to play; however, the bad news is that season 19 has yet to start. That said, rumor has it that we should be able to jump into season 19 on either November 15th or November 22nd. Updated patch notes: Image credit to


In a very open and interesting interview with Steven Messner at PC Gamer, Blizzard president J. Allen Brack clarified the finer points of the events that unfolded around the ban of Hearthstone player Blitzchung, and the two casters who were interviewing him. Long interview short, he states that Blizzard can't legally operate in China, without their "partnership" with NetEase, that NetEase wrote the initial Chinese apology note, and that Blizzard did not authorize it nor had any control over it. He also goes on to state that Blizzard supports freedom of speech and that there are a lot of people at Blizzard who support what Blitzchung was saying when he spoke out on the stream. While all of this might be true, the way Blizzard handled the entire debacle in the U.S. left MUCH to be desired. In fact, it makes you wonder if Blizzard even has a PR department that has the forethought to prepare for "bad press" events such as this. All that said, give the full inte
