Ah, Diablo...the first game that ever made me throw down my controller, jump up from my chair and scream "Yeah baby and FUCK YOU TOO!" when I beat a boss...

Actually, I think the dent from my mother's shoe may still be in the back of my head somewhere.

I'm glad they're aiming at building up the universe a bit more and finding new ways to tell the plot. I don't know why...but for some reason the first game's never-ending scrolling text turned me off. I'm right in the middle of a click-fest and reading a book was always the last thing I wanted to do.

Definitely enjoyed the sequel's plot much more. Better pacing and character development. I remember they toyed a little bit with having each character class receive their own dialog but it sounds like they'll even be getting unique quests now. Maybe th-

Nice the Assassin(monk) will be back in 3... I love Katarz!
