    Heck Yes.

    This is the greatest new ever. One week? I must have spent a year playing that game.

    It's about freakin' time

    I probably will get fired and my wife may divorce me when this comes out.

    I'm STILL playing DII LOD since it came out. Can't wait for 3! Best game I've ever played.

    Well the little bit of social life I had just got shot to nothing upon hearing this news. Sigh. There goes more months straight of my life.

    looks great

    Movement sorta reminds me of Myth except that the view follows you rather than being arbitrary. The small gameplay movie's graphics already looked better than 1024x768 DII LOD.

    For the love of God make the character appearance customizable.

    I got so sick of every sorceress looking the same...

    There's a VERY long gameplay video on their site... looks interesting.

    Of course, the $64,000.00 question is... intel only? What I find really annoying is outfits like a**-pire, who announce new games, but never tell us if it will run on the millions of PPC machines still in service. Until right before shipping, when they tell us "intel only." They announced CoD4 a long time ago, but still won't say if it';s intel only... and there is no godly reason to withhold such information.

    This being Blizzard, I'd expect to be treated much better...
