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 .

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
