A few Diablo III-related tidbits for your amusement:
- A useful article from Digital Trends compares data transfer times on a variety of USB 3.0 thumb drives, which is relevant and amusing since one of their benchmarks was how long it took to copy Diablo III to the drive and back to the computer. The transfer times varied from 3:22 to 12:26, which makes me want a new zip drive — mine is an old 8gig model that must run at about USB 1.2, as long as it takes to copy over large files.
- Eat Games offers article from Digital Trends in which he talks about early Diablo III MMO plans. Nothing we haven’t heard before, but useful for the completist.
- another Max Schaefer TL2 interview with the actors who voiced Tyrael, Azmodan, and Covetous Shen. They include photos of the actors, and two of them actually look a lot like their game characters. Azmodan does not, but you’d hardly expect him to, now would you?
- I remember mentioning this Diablo I Tristram theme Blizzard posted interviews earlier this year it debuted, but Katniss brought it up again in a forum post and it’s worth another listen.
Seen any other interesting Diablo III things? The community seems pretty sleepy of late, as everyone’s just kind of waiting for v1.05 to move from the testing realm to the real thing.
