Yesterday brought assorted confusing news about Diablo III, which left quite a few people unhappy – let’s see if today does any better. Here’s almost eight minutes of Blizzard’s hacky-slashy game in hacky-slashy and incredibly noisy action, in footage taken from the game’s beta. Seems to me – though I say this with extreme caution – that it’s a little more on the grimdark side than perhaps we’d been expecting from earlier look-sees…
Oh, I do want to play that. The things, they splat so nicely. What a shame a game like this has been locked down in so many ways. We can only wait to see if those highly controversial decisions have merit for the player as well as the game-makers.
