  1. The interviewer hasn´t really done his research regarding Josh Mosqueira. Asking him how it is to been working on it for so long while he has just joined the team.

    Edit: I know he says “you guys” but still.

  2. console crowd = more profit
     
    but the game doesnt fit console crowd
     
    so lets change it:
     
    -cut skill points, streamlining the system, with the excuse that people just put everything in one skill (axing system instead of fixing)
     
    -cut status allocation, same as above
     
    -free respecs so little babies dont cry when they make something that isnt succesful
     
    -waypoints, waypoints everywhere
     
    -wow like art style, to invite wow crowd (more profit)
     
    -4 players per game, no lan (wouldnt work in consoles if it was different)
     
    -pay to win (more profit, fits well console crowd- dad’s credit card)
     
    and so, pc crowd gets bored by all the streamlining, and by console cry babies, leaving the game
    console brats gets annoyed and bored fast, going back to halo and other console hits

    • You realize they aren’t even actually working on the console game yet right?
      They have absolutely no need to have the same game for PC and for console, they have said many times it will not be a port.
      I believe all the choices they made were made in attempts to make the PC game the best game it could be, even if in our view they did not succeed with all of their choices.

    • Everyone has the right to an opinion.
      But in your case i cant just let you stick with it cus it has so many flaws. They need to rework the whole engine and the ui when they build it for console. Im sure that they wont be aible to use much from the pc version except from the raw data and the code.
      Tthey wont even be aible to use the curent models that they have in the pc version u know, cus they have way to much polygons for a consol to handle. And that will be the case for every single model in the game.
      So u see, your point of removal of ex skill points is such a minor problem when you think about it. It would just give blizzard more job to revoke a system like that to fit a consol version that they even are 100% sure that they will be aible to do. All those small things is up to the future consol team to find a soultion for.
       

    • “pc crowd gets bored… by console cry babies”

      Oh shit, man… You, my sir, are in no way a crybaby… But a man! You are not afraid to say the truth, and truly, not afraid of anything!  😀

  3. its better be a pretty fucking epic experience, it has been 10 years of waiting and if it ends up i spent more time on fansites, instead of playing the game, i’ll be disappointed to a unexplainable level.

    • And holy mane, everyone is so thorough when mentioning 10 years… I, for example, was playing Diablo II well until 2008, when I discovered Titan Quest… And for all that time, I was not “waiting for Diablo III”. Really, can you call yourself a Diablo fan, if you’ve been waiting for something you had no semblance of idea about, instead of playing a greatest game of the time? 🙂

  4. I wish THQ make Titan Quest 2:) . But one thing I’m sure, I still loving Diablo 2( loving and playing). C’mon blizz just release the D3.

  5. This guy for real? “Everything Diablo II was but better”
     
    Right…. As much as i want to believe that i doubt that is ever going to happen!

  6. They declared it oft, they are solemn active it, so if there’s XBOX, Playstation or Wii leaders watching it, they impinging Storm. Certainly it leave bang a piece soil they made the aggroup and persuade the mettlesome to the limited housing. As he said they’re still intelligent for a squad, so there’s nix done yet.

  7. I am a novice writer that is always looking for inspiration. This article is impressive and has inspired me to aspire to be as good a writer as you. Thanks for all the great info.
