@Diablo tweeted a thanks to finger-picking guitar sensation Andy Mckee for visiting their Irvine offices.
Diablo’s Facebook page added more info and a photo of the man at work:
I’d just taken that in when I saw a forum post by Mizantrop, which quoted Andy’s enthusiastic Diablo III review.
So, to all of you Diablo fans, let me assure you that D3 kicks ass! I played the Monk character and he was killer. They dropped me in at around level 9 and I had some cool skills and was able to level up twice. The skill set looked cool and offered a good chance for customization. Plus, there are armor dyes in D3 allowing for further customization. The gameplay was there and I was hooked! Can’t wait for the release!!!
He got to play the Blizzcon 2010 demo, about which we’ve written extensively. If you want a reminder, visit my huge Monk PvM report, which discusses tactics and all of the skills Andy would have used while playing the character at Blizzard’s HQ. Lucky him. And you thought playing guitar was only useful for getting girls?
