Diablo 3


Two decades?  It doesn't seem that long.  The anticipation is fueled by an unknown release date.  Blizzard will still be in charge, so you'll be playing on battle.net like before.  However, the game will be run on a brand new graphics engine with new aspects focusing on awesome 3d minions and environments, spell-effects, and cloth simulation.  New characters come into play, too.  The witch doctor specializes in alchemy, pet summoning, zombie armies and things of that nature, like the Necromancer with a twist.  The Demon Hunter is a brand new class in itself, wielding a pair of crossbows.  Remember the cinematics in Diablo2?  I can't imagine how well they'll look in D3.  Hurry up, Blizzard!

My escape, my home away from home for 12 years, now.  Sometimes I'd spend 30+ hours in a single sitting playing this MMORPG.  I've met a lot of really great people in Norrath, yet after WoW was released, many of them left, and it hasn't been the same since.  I eventually dropped out of highschool because I was too addicted to do my homework.  I've since then attained my GED, and am working full time.  I just wonder what my life would have been like if I had used all of those years doing something more productive.
