Savage: Diablo III's Barbarian Shouts and Breaks Things

Diablo III's Barbarian is quite the nuanced character. His culture is... well, and then there was this exploding mountain that... OK, he kills stuff with axes big enough to be chopped down by normal axes. Also, he leaps onto his squishy loot pinata enemies like Mario if he'd been the victim of an oh-so-trendy gritty reboot. Honestly, though, Diablo isn't really the place to live out my fantasy of Reginald Spleenfury, the exceedingly well-read and business-like barbarian who struggles to push back against a society that refuses to understand his ways - and is also largely illiterate and has yet to invent business. So I'll probably just roll his underachieving, overkilling slacker cousin Powthwack Kabiffzott and check my brain at the door.

Diablo III, as everyone on the planet knows, is closing in on a May 15 release date. Last week, we got to meet the Demon Hunter, but will next week bring another video to whet our click-click-clicking appetites? I'm gonna go with yes. Well, unless a meteor collides with the planet, instantly yet painfully obliterating us all. Ah man, I totally just jinxed it, didn't I? Oh, this is so awkward.
