Mystery Manual – Episode 378

In this episode, I mentioned Microsoft and the Activision Blizzard King acquisition, David Brevik, a blog about color coded loot, and Twitch’s recent blog posts regarding revenue. I mentioned the leaks of Grand Theft Auto 6 and Diablo IV (but did not mention anything specific about those leaks).

Most of the show focused on Diablo II: Resurrected, Diablo IV, and Diablo Immortal. Oh, and there’s this “mystery manual” that some people have been trying to decode…
