Yeah, the point brought up is how the only logical explanation for it being slated in the exact same quarter as the expantion is that it's a console version or not really a RTS. Ghost fits into both. But lets forget about that, this is not the SC2 thread... =P

New video featuring the Follower System:



I like how you now have better customization than with the old Mercenaries system.

More information on the Follower's system:

PC IGN - Diablo 3: Virtual Friends with Benefits

So unlike the run-of-the-mill mercs in D2, these Followers will be their own characters with dialogue and interactions. Interesting, I always was fond of my mercs in D2 even when they didn't speak XD

People wrote fanfiction about the Mercs in D2. Me myself had a soft spot for the Fire Rogues.

Natch.

Can we date our own Mercs? Will they complain if we use them to bait a horde to AOE on?

1. Doujins exist for that glorious purpose
2. Only if we... compensate for the pain they recieved through- *static*



As an aside, the above video actually shows us the male Demon Hunter and Wizard in action, plus a female Barbarian. Didn't notice the first time round

If Bioware made D3, we would be able to have bisexual romances with our followers. Since this is Blizzard though... we'll just have to settle with loads and loads of UST.

yay Diablo 3

it seems that they fix pretty much every problem with diablo 2 in this one =3

also reguardless of the 3 prime evils dieing
they still did accomplish their goal in the end

and diablo usually reincarnates anyway =3
also keep in mind that the prime evils arent even using their real bodies
they are basically possessing really strong humans and using them as hosts
but diablo, mephisto, and baal have to yet to fully revive themselves in any of the games =3

and the strongest of the lesser evils, Belial and Azmodan, are still on the lose
these are the 2 who originally killed alll 3 prime evils, so them being in a game would be awesome =3

and this is my breakdown on why diablo 3 is gonna be awesome xD

Wow, it felt like forever since I last heard of a Diablo news Actually just last week, I had even completely forgotten they already revealed the last class

Just one question; do we get both genders for the followers ?

Bad news.
http://forums.battle.net/thread.html...=3000&pageNo=2

Mercs are designed to be entirely useless past normal difficulty. They stop levelling up past level 25. The intention was to "ease" Single-player gamers into playing Multiplayer by giving them someone to play with, then take it all away so they would have to play online with other people instead.

Frankly I am insulted by this. And DIII has been bumped off my buy-list until further notice.

Because these aren't Mercs like in D2. Like you said they made them as a sort of tutorial to get players used to having other characters working with them. I don't really see the big deal but then again I rarely if ever used Mercs in D2.

That's not the problem; the problem is that by making mercs a Multiplayer tutorial only, it means I have no more reason to treat Diablo as a single-player game.

I don't care about multiplayer no matter how good it is suppose to be. It is not my type of fun. And as such, since DIII is now officially a full Multiplayer game all the way through, and Blizzard even told me to my face that I am a minority who isn't going to matter very much, that I would make sure the "minority" gets even more minor by taking myself out of it.

There is another RPG that is coming out this year, that has a dedicated Single-Player. I will not name it as I don't want to start a versus argument. But let it be known that Blizzard helped me make up my mind which RPG I would be playing at the end of 2011.

I have to be honest with you. If a small announcement like this is making you totally forsake a game then it doesn't sound like you really ever intended to like it in the first place.

Blizzard isn't calling single players a minority, their intention for followers were to be a helper and lore providing character for single players in normal mode. Judging by what's been said about normal mode, it's going to be simple anyway so I don't see how making a follower that is pretty much useless on the difficulty you can use it on, unavailable on the other difficulties a big deal.

Here is the quote when Blizzard explicitly call people like me a minority:
Quote:
I don’t mean any offense, but you don’t represent the majority of people that will play the game. For better or worse.
Note the "I don't mean any offense". This sentence is only used when Blizzard knows they are saying something offensive, but says it anyway.

And go ahead and accuse me of being a drama queen or that I am a liar. I have been following DIII news for months now, and I am genuinely angry at what they have done. They have officially declared that as a Single Player gamer, I don't deserve to have the full game past Normal difficulty. This is a design decision to make sure I am not having too much fun.

This is the first time Blizzard has said to my face that "You are playing it wrong, do multiplayer or don't do it at all."

Spoiler for First Blizzard Post:


Spoiler for Third Post:


After reading all three posts, I'm still not seeing them calling single players a minority. He was telling those people on that forum complaining about not being able to use mercs on higher difficulties and essentially posting on a hidden forum that they aren't a majority of the people that will be buying the game. Let's be honest, people who use a forum for a game that's not even out yet, aren't a majority no matter how you slice it.
