I know Friul I just saw the trailer. It was sick.
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

Now we just have to wait for the release.   :P  I wonder what the other classes will be.

Yea! I wasted many an hour day week month on Diablo II. That, and StarCraft. Glad to see both of them reborn.

StarCraft should be here by the end of the year. That'll be enough until Diablo gets here.

In the meantime, I've been playing Sins of a Solar Empire. It's available as a download from www.stardock.com, and it has no copy protection of any kind! Maybe I can finally get rid of this orange jumpsuit....

Several people in my WoW guild are looking forward to the next "Diablo".  I've never played myself. But I've enjoyed Blizzard's WoW very much and there's much anticipation for the new expansion on that.

You could probably find them in a bargain bin at a video game store for pretty cheap.   :P  There is also a set that includes both Diablo I and II, plus their expansion packs, which I have seen retail for as low as 12-15$.

In typical Blizzard fashion.   :P

I'm not good at it, and its still the best game I've ever played...

This pretty much sums Diablo up:

Asemănându-te obiceiurilor râvnitorului Ilie şi urmând Botezătorului pe drepte cărări, Părinte Antonie, te-ai făcut locuitor pustiului şi ai întărit lumea cu rugăciunile tale. Pentru aceasta, roagă-te lui Hristos Dumnezeu, să mântuiască sufletele noastre.

After a great deal of waiting, we finally know all of the classes.  Barbarian, Witch Doctor, Wizard, Monk, and Demon Hunter.

Demon Hunter looks like a rehash of the assassin.  No equivalent of a paladin it seems, but new classes are possible should an expansion come out later.

I thought the same thing, except the assassin is melee, the Demon Hunter appears to be all ranged.

Latest rumours place it at Nov. 2011.  Which would make sense based on their development schedule, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

It looks like a mixture of the rogue from D1 and the assassin from D2.  Also, it was announced that the closest thing to a Paladin would be the Monk class.

But "WoW Cataclysm" is due out in December, so for those who play that there's something to look forward to.  :)
