Diablo was once considered for an MMO, but no longer

In many ways Diablo III seemed like the sort of game that would lead naturally into an MMO for the franchise.

The Nexus Telegraph: In which no WildStar injuries happened

My performance on the dance floor during PAX East 2013's WildStar party is the stuff of dark legends (in my mind, anyway), but it was not replicated this year.

The Daily Grind: How far in advance will you get excited about a game?

Following WildStar since its first cinematic trailer way back when has been an interesting experience, partly because I've been so consistently lucky. I started following the game when we knew virtually nothing, and for all I knew then it could easily have turned out to be a game I'd never willingl...
