And the Heavens shall tremble

[08:22] <SonicTempest> man, with Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 both on the way Blizzard is really trying to sap my productivity
[08:23] <Sakuya-san> :3
[08:24] <Fuu> "diablo sapping mah productivity!"

The announcement of Diablo III (for PC and Mac, as per Blizzard’s MO) is bloody awesome, but with sequels to both of my favourite Blizzard franchises on the horizon I think I’m not going to be able to do much else when they’re finally released :(

That said, Diablo III looks fantastic. The game is entirely in 3D now (although still using a 3/4 view perspective), and they’ve added things like the ability to use the environment against your enemies which is very, very cool. Blizzard has released cinematic and in-game trailers here, so check them out.

Currently they’ve only revealed the Barbarian and Witch Doctor classes, but there will be five classes in total. Hoping for a Paladin or something resembling one :p

    They are likely not pulling a D&D4 (WoTC omitted Barbarian, Bard, Druid and Monk, keeping them for the next time).

    In times like this, I’m glad to see I’m not a Blizzard fan :3

      …I have no idea what you’re trying to imply with that post.

        All my friends who are Blizzard fans always make an incredible spent of money in their computers just to play their new games.

          Blizzard games are always among the most scalable PC games ever made. World of Warcraft will run on integrated graphics cards, for crying out loud.

          This game probably won’t, but it won’t require the sort of hardware that Crysis did, for sure.

          Blizzard is a PC developer through and through – they know how PC games should be developed.
