Blizz Vacation Contest Deadline
Updated on 4/13/00 at 9:44:38 PM EST by Cloudy
Just a quick administrative heads-up: Our Blizzard Vacation Contest will end tonight at 12:00 a.m., eastern time. At that point, links and submit buttons and what-not will be disabled. We've received a TON of submissions, and as soon as we get time to sift through them all and narrow it down to a winner, we'll be announcing the lucky soul. If you've yet to get your submission in, don't delay. You could be the lucky winner of a Copy of Blizzard's much anticipated title, DiabloII. Good luck to everyone.
Diablo II Just A Clone?
Updated on 4/13/00 at 5:18:32 PM EST by AlienMarine
Chick of Daily Radar has written an interesting article about Diablo II entitled Diablo II: Sequel or Remake?. It's quite funny and some of it is horribly true. Here's a little part of this article for you to check out:
In addition to predicting its widespread success, I also know that Diablo II is going to suck 100 hours from my life, and those 100 hours will not be terribly different from the 100 hours Diablo has already sucked away. What will a man profit if he lose 200 hours to gain a level 25 Sorceress with his ex-girlfriend's name?
This is a really well written article and I recommend you check it out right here.
