Blizzard Entertainment, the well-known gaming company is hiring for an undisclosed game it hasn’t announced yet. We all love Blizzard for the awesome games they made or are still making, games like Diablo, Starcraft, Warcraft, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone or the upcoming game Overwatch, but this time, Blizzard is hiring someone who understands the Diablo franchise. In other words they are probably working on the new expansion for Diablo 3 because of the huge success they had with this franchise.

“Blizzard Entertainment, the developer of the most epic games in the world, is seeking an exceptionally skilled and passionate art director to help develop Blizzard’s next hit game!”
“A passion for games with a deep understanding of the Diablo franchise”

Maybe, they are not trying to make a new expansion, just a new game in the same style. The only fact we know is that they are looking for a skilled art director for their new hit game, if it was an expansion there wouldn’t be such a fuss about it. So maybe we can expect a new game from Blizzard, although a Diablo expansion also sounds great.
Before you get your hopes up high, Blizzard’s requirements for this particular job are very strict:

  • Blizzard wants a minimum of 5 years’ experience as a lead artist or art director and 10 years’ experience in crafting video game art.
  • The employee has to have the ability of managing large art staff of varying skills including strong illustration and/or concept art skills and specialties.
  • They are looking for a person with incredible communications and interpersonal skills and the ability to motivate artists and collaborate well with other developers in a team environment.
  • A solid knowledge of current and next-gen art techniques and fundamental art principles is needed, alongside proof of proficiency with 2D and 3D applications, such as Adobe Photoshop, Maya, Painter, 3DS Max etc.

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good story. Personally I love reading about the people who inspire me and what it took for them to achieve their success. As I am a bit of a self confessed tech geek I think there is no better way to discover these stories than by reading every day some articles or the newspaper . My bookcases are filled with good tech biographies, they remind me that anyone can be a success. So even if you come from an underprivileged part of society or you aren’t the smartest person in the room we all have a chance to reach the top. The same message shines in my beliefs. All it takes to succeed is a good idea, a little risk and a lot of hard work and any geek can become a success. VENI VIDI VICI .

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
