First!

Posted by Meltbrain

Sweet! Looks pretty solid, and they definitely sound like they're doing all the right things.

I need a real gaming PC. This game looks sweet.

Good interview. Getting super pumped to play this game!

Good questions Brad, I wanted to hear about B.net for the game.

Looks like Vinny wasn't filming or he was really tired
Cos' it filmed quite bad
 
P.S. Where's the HUD?!?

Boyarsky was the guy who did the classic "The Vault of the Future" painting! :)

Can't wait to shoryuken > fadc > ulta in a Diablo game.

Posted by Macar0niN00dle

This might steal a chunk of my life.

Posted by Bucketdeth

This game is looking frigging awesome, and it's probably going to be another 9000 years before it comes out lol.

Is Brad tall or are these guys small?

@Aas: 
 
I'd say Brad's about 6'1.

I'm totally using the Monk when I get my hands on this game.  I would laugh so hard if that combo was in this game.

There's no ranged class with physical attacks a-la amazon, yet.  I figure if they are adding ranged weapons at all the next class will cater to those weapons.

Posted by ManMadeGod

Sounds great, good interview.

As long as one of the classes lets me make my army of minions I'm happy. I'm a pet whore guy, my first class i always play in games is the one that summons or has pets of some kind.

Really nice!

Fuck. I want this game right now.

I think it was Drew; didn't they say on the podcast that Drew and Brad were going to BlizzCon... I could be wrong.

Man I'm so excited about this game. I loved the original back when it came out, I was 10 and that game scared the hell out of me.

Also, I was really happy with the dudes response when Brad asked him what he would say to old Diablo fans, he said they want to maintain the action, lore, feel and mood. Those are the things I'm looking for!

Thats right, but are they going to deliver? Why did they pull off the Witch Doctor? He doesnt fit into Diablo at all, they might aswell just have kept the Necromancer. I'm quite sure the new class will be Amazon or ranged.

I've never played a Diablo game before but it does look pretty good. Might have to make a purchase.

Posted by Quacktastic

The loot grabbing was Diablo's only flaw for me.  The fact that it's being fixed is great.

Posted by John1912

Interesting that the Monk is combo based.  Ill prob actually play him then.  Wish he wasnt a Monk thou.  Rather it was a ninja or Assassin.  i hear Monk and i think of the bald Frairs
Posted by Lepruk86

I am really excited for this game but you know it will be a Q3/Q4 2010 release at the very earliest (though I'd wager summer 2011 tbh)...
 
I think they showed the game waaaay too early; this year should have been the unveiling of it. Reason I say this is because Diablo doesn't need to do that much marketing because people already know what it is.
 
Plus every day I have to wait for this game I die a little inside!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! /cry........... 
 
(I am playing a lot of Titan Quest + exp atm and just trying to pretend it's DIII >.<)....

That guy closest to Brad is a BEAST.

Hahaha that is awesome, nice find

4 player online co-op instead of 8 player,  FUCKING BULLSHIT LAZY FUCKS
 
Diablo 2 LOD was out by 2001, this POS is coming out Winter 2011 and limits us to 4 players online.  I just built my P.C. rig that can ass rape Crysis on VERY HIGH and the best excuse Blizzard has is because of gameplay and not technical limitations that they are not willing to spend the money and face.  
 
The desert stage LOOKS LIKE SHIT!! so does the god damn bullshit trailer on DIABLO3.COM

LAZY MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!
THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN THE ORIGINAL TEAM DISBANDED AND/OR GOT FIRED AND A BUNCH OF NOOBS MAKING THE LAST PART OF THE TRILOGY.
 
 
I'm still going to buy Starcraft 2 because that game looks fucking outstanding, it has everything I liked about the original and added soo much more its insane.  The single player even has RPG elements to lvl up the units you like the most and even have the ability to kill off a major character in-game.

Edited by Kajaah117
@Razor: 8 players would be awful. Like they said, it's not technical, it's a gameplay choice. It's the same reason Gears of War is 5v5, you have to balance fun with pacing.

Good to see Mr. Boyarsky landed safely after the closure of Troika.

Brad has mastered the art of Interesting Interviewing! 
Great stuff. :)

Edited by MrKlorox

Fuck yeah Leonard Boyarsky! This dude was partly responsible for the look of the original Fallout. I can totally see that influence in this wastelandish environment.
 
Kinda surprised you didn't ask him if the look of this environment had anything to do with the bitching and moaning of those that want muted colors and darkness or if it was just a return to familiarity.

Posted by MeatSim

I do like the blizzard "when it's done" attitude. 

Edited by MrKlorox

So it seems since they're relying on this "archetype" style of character design, the final class will likely be an equivalent to the Paladin: a buff/debuff class made specifically for multiplayer. Sweet!

Posted by giyanks22

This game is going to be really awesome

Posted by trimon

Great questions Brad! I really think this team working on Diablo 3 really understand Diablo. They said they want to get the mood right which is the way to go.

@Razor: Shh, shh, shh... It's all gonna be ok, it's all gonna be ok...
 
Also, great interview. Brad is an interviewing beast.
Posted by eduardo

It's awesome that Tom Savini is making Diablo 3... nah, just kidding, but the guy looks just like him!

Posted by Sunjammer

Good to see you again in the biz Leonard :-) Best wishes!

Posted by Hoshnasi

Why would this game not be released for 8 players?  Do we have to wait for an expansion ala LoD for eight players and expanded inventory slots :P

Posted by joelalfaro

Heheh Brad always tries his best to get them to spill the beans. A for effort.

Posted by cowdrunk

theres one more class?!?!?
Posted by Monopolized

I saw a lot of pointless gold.. that's what you should have asked  "Will gold be used for anything in this game"
