I have been way too busy recently to play any games, but one game that was announced last week has made me long for the days of yore when I could play for hours on end with no thought of responsibilities calling my name. Blizzard Entertainment announced Diablo 3. This third installment of mankind’s fight against Diablo picks up the storyline two decades after Diablo 2 ended. It will feature five new character classes and lots of enemies.
The 20-minute gameplay video shows a barbarian fending off dozens of beasts that are climbing up walls and coming out of every corner to fight. The graphics are of course beautiful, and Blizzard assures us in the FAQ that “as with all of Blizzard Entertainment’s recent releases, Diablo III will ship for both Windows and Mac simultaneously.”
There is no word on system requirements for the game, or a release date or price for that matter. It could be a while, as Starcraft 2 was announced over a year ago, and is still waiting for a release date.
You can buy Diablo II, which only requires Mac OS 8.1 or higher and a G3, for $19.99 and relive the glory days.
