Diablo III Patch Sneak Peak

The Diablo III Website now offers a sneak peak at what to expect from the upcoming version 1.0.5 patch for Blizzard's action/RPG, saying they will offer articles with more detail over the coming days, implying the patch is not far off. The new version will include defensive skill changes and reduced incoming damage to promote build diversity, a new Infernal Machine device to allow high-level players to play steroidal bosses, and a new Monster Power system designed to give players more control over how challenging enemies are in each difficulty. They also have a new article called Voices of Diablo III, Part One talking with the voice actors behind Tyrael, Azmodan, and Covetous Shen.

WoW (and the popularization of MMO's in general) has changed the way gamers work, and the general public will never be able to fully accept a random loot game anymore. They need to know that when they kill X mob... W, Y, or Z item can drop but you know going in that they are upgrades for someone you are playing with. No one wants to deal with vendor fodder anymore or the off chance that a good deal of effort may result in a random item that no one can use.

Poor itemization in BL2 will be the first thing (Well, one of the first things... I'm sure...) everyone starts complaining about. 87 bazillion weapons and 12 good ones, just like the first game.
