Diablo 3!!Diablo 3!!Diablo 3!!Diablo 3!!Diablo 3!!!!!11111!!red111!!!meat!!!!
It snuck up on me.
You know, I dared hope in the furthest recesses of my soul that possibly the greatest pc game ever made would someday see a sequel. You know, before my hair & teeth fall out.
Finally!! Of course, now it’s just a year of waiting…I wish they’d waited another 6 months to announce it at least, but this is the way of modern gaming: multi-year pre-announcements, “developer diaries”, months/years of delays, etc. Still, Starcraft 2 AND Diablo 3? Wow, it’s going to be a banner few years for gaming.
I may finally quit City of Heroes. Seriously, if anything could pull me away it’s the awesomeness that could be a new Diablo (not to mention I’ll save some money every month since it’s free to play online…well, hopefully anyway!). Check out the gameplay videos; it looks gorgeous and lush!! All without giving up that 3d-isometric viewing angle (or whatever the technical name is). I can’t stand 1st person style games for the most part – MMOs are a rare situation where I can stomach it, and I play zoomed back out and above if the camera allows it (or don’t play the game at all).
Here’s a post on the D3 forums going over the posted video in great detail.
EDIT2: Some comic reactions from around the web.
