RPGFan: Ten years. It's been ten long years since Diablo 2, and I'm hungry for some loot.
The announcement of Diablo 3 back in the summer of 2008 sent a wave of endorphins through my entire body. But, as with any announcement of a returning franchise, the voices of concern and jeers of the detractors began to weigh down my expectations for the Lord of Terror's return. Can Blizzard evolve the genre in ways that we haven't seen before? Are they simply going to ride the wave of nostalgia each one of us feels every time we kill a Fallen One and hear that delightful scream? It was with slight trepidation that I installed the Diablo 3 beta on my computer and made my return to the world of Sanctuary.
