Cumbersome

October 25, 2010 by Tim

Blizzcon has come and gone for the year, and while it was fairly “meh” as far as WoW and Starcraft were concerned, it did bring a lot of pretty new Diablo 3 shininess to look at, and a couple of choice announcements.

I’ve been trying to turn a mostly blind eye to Diablo 3 news because I know it’s soooo far away. Still, I couldn’t ignore Blizzcon this weekend, and now I’m worked up into a little bit of a Diablo frenzy. I’m even reinstalling Diablo 2 and Torchlight to try and quench my need for dungeon crawling.

They announced the fifth and final class for D3, the dual-crossbow wielding Demon Hunter. It’s a cool idea for a rogue-ish type ranged class, but… dual crossbows?

I guess it could have been worse. I’ve actually obtained a piece of never-before-seen Blizzard concept art showcasing a previous iteration of this class. I present to you the dual-longbow Demon Hunter:

They also announced structured PvP arena battles which immediately turns the game into even more of a must-have timesink. All in all Diablo 3 is looking amazing, which makes it even more painful to think that we may not even get it until 2012.

Fingers crossed Torchlight 2 isn’t too far off.
