Diablo 3: 7 Fun Builds that Got Nerfed into Oblivion

Today, I want to talk about various fun builds in Diablo 3 that got nerfed into nothingness. These builds aren’t necessarily great builds for pushing high Greater Rifts nor are they ones that may have been universally loved. They are builds that I played at some point that may have been Meta or at least interesting and worth checking out that got destroyed at some point.

Yahoo Sold Off to Verizon and What It Means

Marissa Mayer arguably did her job when she finally found a willing buyer for Yahoo in Verizon. Already, Yahoo had been tossing assets overboard in trying to make themselves attractive. Even the few strategic buys like tumblr proved fruitless over time in an effort to stay independently afloat. Thus, the real exit strategy in a market like this one is the buyout. But considering that the end price tag was $4.83 billion, one must ask if this was worth it?

World of Warcraft: Unsubbed and Ecstatic!

I ended up getting sick again over this weekend and didn’t finish up a few pre-pre-patch items on my agenda yesterday. I was sad knowing that the game was going to nerf a bunch of gold making outlets from Garrison missions.

World of Warcraft: Hitting Level 100 and Warlords of Draenor Impressions

Probably, one of the most eagerly anticipated expansions, Warlords of Draenor, to come down the pipeline erupted to a pretty abysmal launch this past week.

For myself the experience has been somewhat frustrating but not from queue issues. I want to talk about my feelings thus far from what I’ve seen.

Why Wildstar Died and World of Warcraft Remains Around

One of the biggest hyped games in 2014 was the coming of Wildstar. As usual, the MMORPG community predicted the death of World of Warcraft as another johnny-come-lately made its appearance with a whole set of features that would destroy the perennial MMORPG. And of course, those predictions were wrong. Here’s my thoughts on why Wildstar had failed.

Diablo 3/World of Warcraft Vlog: Gaming Etiquette Part 2

After having a demotivating event occur during a public Diablo 3 game, I became motivated in providing some more thoughts on how the gaming community at large needs to start looking themselves, behaving and treating each other. It’s nothing new that anyone with common sense should be able to easily figure out. But I think for many they just won’t get it. Nonetheless, we need to continue pushing ourselves and my vlog hopefully will spawn similar painful memories for others so that they too can come together and combat poor behavior in social games:
