The Big Bad is Back.

Yes, the king of clickfest isometric-perspective monster slaughter has returned. The big “surprise” announcement at Blizzard’s Worldwide Invitational was the forthcoming release of Diablo III, and I, personally, am pretty gosh-darn excited. I sank a great many hours into Diablo 2, and a great many more hours into it when the Lord of Destruction expansion came out, and then a great many more hours again a few months later when they patched in some interesting changes and myself and a friend stormed through Nightmare mode.

As is typical with Blizzard, there is no release date, but they never announce these things until they’re pretty far along – D3’s apparently been in development for four years already.

So, basically, I’m excited. Are you excited? I am.

    Most definitely, I also spent a fair whack of my time on Diablo 2 – it’s brilliant! It’s nice to see they’ve retained the top-down style for the new one. Although do you know if you can zoom in or not? I haven’t seen any footage so far.

    Is this just on PC or what?

    And the big bad, it always comes back.

    I’m excited! I’m also glad a release date hasn’t officially been made yet.
    I never learn, i get all excited for a release date, then can barely console myself when it’s puched back a few months!
