Well, Blizzard announced Diablo 3 over the weekend. It’s basically the same gameplay, except they’re improving and expanding on everything like graphics, items, etc. You can’t go wrong with that. Blizzard is smart and they know their big franchises have huge installed bases and there’s no reason to fix something that isn’t broken. Don’t rock the boat, just polish everything and make it better. Same deal as StarCraft 2.
This was really big news in the video game world and I began following it when there were rumors floating around that Blizzard would announce a new game at the Worldwide Invitational in Korea. For those that don’t know, Starcraft is insanely popular in South Korea and it’s actually a sport there (with spectators and televised matches). It was only logical to assume that this new product would be the long awaited Starcraft II. Blizzard’s tagline when they introduced this game was very appropriate – “Hell, it’s about time.” In my opinion, Starcraft is one of the greatest games ever and the best RTS game (so far). You just have to be into the game to understand.
