Rest in peace, Blizzard North, we shall never forget the gifts you gave us. May your spirit remain at rest while the inexperienced hands of the unworthy molest a once great and cherished piece of art which we so adoringly call "Diablo" . May the final product, a blasphemous title, "Diablo III", grace us as being even half as enjoyable as its predecessors. And may it try its best to pluck us loving followers from the comforts of our social lives. If not, the heretics shall pay. Amen.
I agree with most people here, sure it needs work to meet D-fanatic's expectations, including myself. As stated again and again though, this is not

I'll conclude with my only major gripe which I really hope they don't screw around with:
Item names. The creativity and the originality in Diablo II's item names seemed so unique and genuine, (One of my favorites; the Unique Dirk is named "The Diggler", it's a very small dagger, but references the movie Boogie Nights and its character, Dirk Diggler. Who's not exactly sporting a "small dagger") I hope the legacy continues. I don't care if they convert the font colors to match that of WoW's item ranking. I just want my...
And that's all I have to say about that.Edited by Deviance - 5/17/11 at 4:36am
