Diablo III Interview

A video interview on Games On Net talks with Jay Wilson of Blizzard about Diablo III and "why item acquisition is more important than ladders, how they plan to handle latency for Australians, and why they will not incorporate an 'offline mode." They also have a blurb up about some comments Wilson made about the stand he took against changing the visual perspective in the action/RPG sequel that's due for release next week: "Very early on in the process we had some people who argued that we should not make the game isometric, that it would be better technology, more modern, if we made a third or first-person game," said Wilson. "I really would have nothing of it. For me a camera is not a technology choice, there's more than enough first and third-person games out there."

The arguments in this thread - are repeated in the last 3 threads on this same topic. There, is that better? geez. I also didn't lump everyone, bunch, somtimes, etc. Aren't lumps. They are groups. If you would like, I can list em, but the short list is known by all. The aggression and nerd rage is rampant. Fine, D3, big whoop. Play it or don't, but I don't see a reason to repost every cry baby item in each individual thread. There are a couple in here that have bitched about always on DRM and the AH in every single thread. Need an IGNORE THREAD button.

Fair enough. There isn't much else to discuss really until the game comes out unfortunately. A lot of the interview material was just rehashed stuff people have heard before. I'm sure if they revealed the end boss (Diablo possessed Imperius?) then people would be more chatty

I just kind of tune out the more obvious trolls and I like hear both sides of things I guess. To each his own.

Copy that. We will have plenty to talk about in 5 days.
Wondering how fast the item wiki will be setup.
