Okay. Calm down. Take a brea–


Okay I’m over it. It’s just a role-playing game.


Alright, it’s old now. Blizzard’s Diablo series is the Tetris of role-playing games: stupid on the surface, hypnotic on the uptake, classic on the finish. It has been, to date, the only game that I’ve played over and over again, each time freshly entertained by different gameplay logistics. But I shouldn’t have to tell you that.

For years we’ve languished, bending under the rumors that there would never be a Diablo III, and crippled by the fear that if there were, someone might have the terrible inclination to “improve” gameplay by making it first-person or something equally shudder-worthy. But behold! Diablo III is not only real, but just like Diablo II + better art! And a new character! Oh, be still my geeky heart. No joke: hearing the classic sound effects while watching the Diablo III overview video made me goosebumps. NERD.

    Stomp, twirl, stomp, run run, twirl, stomp, run … yawwwwn!
    The voice actors sound like the 14 year-olds who play this game.
    Gnarly barbarian: ‘ Oh no! What the heck was that?’
    Not trying to be mean, just honest about my opinion. After all, my all time fave is ‘Caveman’, running in DOS … yeeow!

    Once it’s out, I’m going to try to talk all of my friends (who are sufficiently nerdy) into spending a weekend doing nothing but playing Diablo III. The summer after I graduated college, I spent about 2 weeks doing nothing but playing Diablo II over the LAN with a friend. At least I went to bed every once in a while. He never left left the comfy chair for longer than it took to go to the bathroom or go buy a giant cup of soda and one of those big bags of mini powered donuts from the local Motomart.

    @Dan: Man, I gotta get me some mini powered donuts … from Japan, right? Bandai Gundam donuts FTW!

    Quag, I really don’t think you’ve got a leg to stand on here – you don’t like the way the barbarian sounds? That’s your reason for not liking it. And the repetitive shooting? I mean, you’ve played video games before, right?

    Whatever, everyone else loves it. There’s something wrong with you.

    ‘Don’t hurt me, I’m just a harmless, old madman!
