Diablo III: Reaper of Souls
With the big release of Patch 2.0.1 this past week we have been chopping at the bit to see how the revamped systems translated from the PTR / Beta servers to Live. We were not disappointed. New life it seems has really been brought back into the game and seeing a full friends list is a real great thing! The Diablo CMs made a nice wrap up of patch 2.0.1 for getting quickly up to speed if you’ve been out of it for a while too! Other notable points are more pre-order bonuses were revealed, new TV spot commercial, and XP Community Boost for all active players till March 24th!
Heroes of the Storm
The information for Heroes is getting more exciting by the week, almost by the day. The Technical Alpha has been announced, so we may be able to finally play and report to you on the game first hand shortly. Also, over the past couple of weeks now, Heroesnexus.com has been going through the internal “Development Alpha” build and we have sneak peeks at early skins, systems, and much more.
It appears that a weekly rotation of a set number of free to play Heroes will be in per week, rotating out to new ones the following week. Also, similar to Heathstone when it was in Closed Beta, a special gift appears to be given out to those that test the in-game shop. These two points make it seem that Blizzard is going with a “LoL” model vs. “DOTA2”. As always though with Early, rapidly changing, datamined information, take it with a huge grain of salt seeing as it may already have changed internally by the time we see it.
StarCraft II has been steadily moving forward making small improvements and getting ready for the next WCS. There have been two patches – one a bug patch primarily, and another small balance patch. Lastly, the Twitch Premium Subscription for Season 1 is now available.
World of WarCraft
The development team for Warlords released their visions for normalizing and redoing the racial and ideas on the incoming stat and gear squish. We also go over the big $60 bucks for a level 90 boost.
Hearthsone gave us a few updates and teases for the future. Season 3 has come to a close with the posting of the ranks. New card backs that we were told about at BlizzCon last year were shown off. Two of which were labeled as “upcoming reward” leaving us to wonder more! With no new balance patches being announced yet, this may be solidifying the cards as they are along with a rather ominous tweet regarding “last chance” to get your Goblin Mekkatorque, we may be at release really soon!
Just wanted to stop by and say that we will be (one way or another, all of us or one of us) be recording Grind Cast #5! This Grind Cast will be as usual, but something's to look forward to are:
Diablo III: RoS Latest Patch
Hearthstone talk and Meta
Heroes Leaked Alpha builds and anything we leaned, if not for shinny artwork.
Will post here when done and live for your pleasure.
Often in life things do not go as we plan. Well this is on of those...
NO THIS IS NOT WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE...LOL
We tried upgrading to WordPress, but to borrow a future clan name for D3, we got "Pooped on" from WP. after way too much, too much time, realizing what was breaking the entire installation every time, we went back to our home CMS.
I am almost done bringing it back to 100% already after 3 installs of different websites in one night...gah time where you go!
Future stuff be coming shortly, enjoy the still quite updated look and feel though!
