Diablo 3 and a Monkey

The eagerly awaited return of Blizzard's Diablo series will be here soon and we now have footage of the 4th class - da Monk. The cinematic trailer clearly didnt see Blizzards full cinematic team on the case, it actually looks like it was all shot inside WoW. The models, animations and look - all feel very much like WoW machinema - it is pretty good given that. There are also gameplay vids as well that I think do a better job of selling the game - look at the monk go.

The Diablo 3 site is another nice piece of Flash and has a range of images for us to admire of the characters and creatures that will grace the game. The design and gameplay images are all classy and I am keen to see it all in action. I have fond memories of the first Diablo, with its generated dungeons, much like a super-graphical Nethack - we need more games like that...
