The Diablo III Website shows off a trailer from BlizzCon 2011, where the developers at Blizzard discuss the nightmare difficulty in Diablo III, their upcoming action/RPG sequel. In the clip artists Kevin K. Griffith, Nate Bowden, Nick Eberle, and Richie Marella reassure players of the challenge this will represent, which is reflected in the video's title: "Diablo III -- You Will Die. We Promise."

They should have a mode where you have just one life. I'm not talking about difficulty, just removing the immortality of the char. Even three lives would be fine. Just some sort of *real* penalty for dieing.
edit: like the D3 unicorn rainbow t-shirt.
If you want to play that way, have at it. but donít lobby for the rest of us who DO NOT want persistent death on a character I have spent countless hours building up and playing just to have it die and be gone forever. No thank you. I do not care for that crap nor do I want it. If itís a setting or Hard Core mode for players like you thatís great, but do not force it in the three other modes that many of us like to play in.
