Diablo 3 Beta

Played just a bit of the Diablo 3 open beta this weekend.

It’s Diablo 2, except prettier and more interactive. I like it. I don’t really expect to play it much, because I’m too busy with Star Wars: The Old Republic. But if you liked Diablo 2, it’s worth a look.

“Diablo III” Coming Soon

So the job postings were in fact a hint, Blizzard has announced Diablo III.

I loved the first Diablo game, and I finished it many times, both online and solo. The second Diablo game kind of made me say, “Meh”. Not that it wasn’t good. It was just, after a couple of hours of clicking on foes to slice them into little bits, I kind of got bored with it. Never actually got all the way through. I might have to give it another go.

Diablo 3 looks much flashier. In fact, you can see some of the cross-pollination between the new D&D 4th Edition Powers and Diablo 3’s special moves.  Everything a character can do looks pretty flashy.

Now, I wonder what this “Next Generation MMO” business on the Blizzard job site is about?
