It's good to know that Blizzard will continue to keep the socially inept nerds away from the rest of us. :D

I am both excited and disappointed. It looks fun and all, but it's the same game better graphics. No jumping and the same mousclick movement, I find myself let down. I was hoping for a more MMO style game (not a true MMO though.. just some upgrades)

I do think it looks like it will be wicked fun, but... I dunno. Same game, new skin.

There are plenty of other shiny new games coming out this fall.  As far as Diablo III is concerned, I'm glad they aren't trying to fix what ain't broke.

Blizzard are not a studio known for their love of innovation. What they do is perfection. They are probably the richest game developers in the world atm and yet they have what, 4 titles... they keep remaking them and polishing them. I like their style, even though they've turned into huge corporate whores with WoW.

There will be changes in Diablo, just not major ones. And TBH, i think it's better, major changes never work with cult-level games.

They should set Diablo 3 on mars. That'd be way better.

Blizzard already has an MMO.  If you want to play an MMO, buy World of Warcraft.  I'm glad they haven't changed this formula.
there is another world
there is a better world
well, there must be.

Diablo is fine just the way it is.  Streamlining a few things, and updating the graphics, is really all it needs.  I am pumped.

Be careful not to accidently blind someone with your plasma pointer.

Nice.... Baldursgate and this engine would be cool.
Overall, looks like a fix up of the SC2 engine...

I tried some D1 and D2 but I'm not a huge hack and slash fan unless it's in 2d... ;)

Say what? :-P
I think I'll like the MP part but that is just speculations so far.

...and a new BG game would still be cool...

He's a huge fan of his electronic buying skills!
Also, he has a closet full of old electronical junk!

Kinda like a pack-rat, if you ask me.
But you never do! So we are saved! :D

Made me reinstall Diablo 2 over the weekend.  New patch.  Goodbye, free time.

I want Icewind Dale 3! Or just plain old Baldur's Gate 3! :P

Although this Diablo sounds intriguing... ;)
