Blizzard has finally announced that Diablo 3 will be released later this year. You can see it at http://www.diablo3.com I am extremely excited about this release, and think that this will be another great hit for Blizzard. So I have a few questions: 1. With Blizzard's track record with game releases, do you think that we will see this game this year? 2. What do you hope to see in this new title? 3. If you have to choose between Starcaft 2 and Diablo 3, what would you choose?

1. With Blizzard's track record, I would rather the game be completed and done before it is released. Sure the holiday season would be a great time to release this game, but I'd honestly be willing to wait until Spring/Summer 09 for the game to release. So much is released around Christmas that you don't have time to play everything. 2. I'm hoping for improved graphics (a given), the destructable environment, respecing characters, an improved storyline (not saying the last two were bad, but a continuation of quality story), and more life-like characters. 3. I liked Starcraft, but not more than Diablo, so Diablo 3 hands down.

yes, yes, yes. Blizzard definately loves the way a deadline feels in its hair as it wizzes by, but it is always for a good reason. I am willing to put in an extra year even if it means that there will be better gameplay and less patches to download

I will get Diablo 3, I will get Starcraft 2. Both games are on my list, and I will play them both for hours on end. But, I also like more mmorpgs. The game I really want to get will be out at the end of the year ( hopefully). Aion, Tower of Eternity. All the games are going to be too good. If I get them all at once, my head might explode, but I would probably start with Aion, Diablo 3, Then Starcraft 2. But thats If I had to make a Choice. I also will be getting lots of Energy drinks so I can stay up all night to play for like 3 days.

Yeah, I am afraid that I may be playing a lot this December. It can be a bummer at christmas, especially if I get a new game and my wife wants me to spend time with family instead. Hopefully I get an alienware laptop so this won't be a problem.

Can't wait to get my hands on it. The Diablo series has got to be one of the best RPGs in its class to grace out video game experience. The graphics on the movie was fantastic. I just can't imagine what specs it need in order to run. I still have a medium powered PC. Can play most games but newer games go at a turtle's pace. The lengthy delay of Diablo 2 does seem to affect how most people gauge the ability of blizzard to release newer games. Well, we aren't certain. Maybe this time, they'd release it sooner. Starcraft is indeed a very good franchise from blizzard. It is the only game where I know most of the keyboard shortcuts in creating buildings/units and commanding them. If there is no choice but to choose just 1, I'll go with Diablo. I prefer RPG than RTS.

I agree. I loved Starcraft, but I think it was a little overrated. I am hoping that there aren't a million delays with this one, but to be fair, I'll wait a long as it takes for a good game to be released.

well i can tell you one thing that i am jumping with joy. i have played diablo 1 and diablo 2. both are good and i think this is the best game ever in its type and that is so exciting that you are actually involved too much in the game. all the magic and the special time are so interesitng to face. plus the game play has a very smooth way of interaction and that is great as far as i think. and that is why i have played and completed it at least 9 or 10 times. and then later i also installed the hex editior and tried out all characters with all powers and weapons and other things. it is very exciting

I agree. Blizzard seems to be on the ball, and have always done a good job of improving a game rather than changing it. I am very much looking forward to what they can do.

I was so surprised when Blizzard announced Diablo 3 and I just cannot believe it. I was waiting for my favorite game ever Starcraft to be released in its second instalment that I was already so excited to get my hands on to play it. Now Diablo 3 have made me gone crazy that I shouted myself yesssss and I feel even more excited. I like Starcraft more than Diablo but I am going to get Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3. It's really hard for me to resist both. I finished playing both previous instalment of Starcraft and Diablo 2. I just cannot believe that Blizzard have created best games ever. I also like to play Warcraft too and of course if I were offered a job at Blizzard I would definitely sign up for it right away!
