Diablo 3. Whee.

Yeah, yeah... the buildup was huge and I knew it'd be something blah... so now the cat is out of the bag and Diablo 3 has been officially announced... and I just can't seem to get excited about it.

The franchise's hallmark is that it is rooted in the 3rd person isometric view, and it just seems to me that the 3rd person isometric view is a dated throwback to a more technologically constrained era that should be abandoned, now that gaming rigs have the horsepower to be free and truly 3D, not 2.5D iso.

Then somebody (Psyclone) pointed out, "they already made a full 3D free-camera Diablo... it's called WoW."

So, color me non-plussed, for now.
