Diablo 3's 2.0.1 patch includes some major changes to Blizzard's dungeon crawler. On top of introducing Loot 2.0, it also tosses in Cursed Chest events, the removal of the Paragon level cap, and adds Clans and Communities. But how much does that affect the average player? Watch jeffmoeller venture through the overhauled Diablo 3 to find out.
This week offered a special edition of GCR Ops, as our Giant Communist Robots battled on behalf of the New Conglomerate faction on the revamped Amerish continent. Many of the changes were met with praise from Chatty, while any concerns have been heard by the game's developers, who are currently evaluating them for a future patch. Check out this week's GCR Ops below, led by squad leader nyranger66.
Space Marine continues to stand out as one of 2011's most overlooked titles. Relic provided a solid FPS game and a fun multiplayer experience to boot. hemtroll shows us how much fun Space Marine's multiplayer could be by jumping into Capture the Flag on the Manufactorum and Basilica maps.
