Randomization and level design in the future of Diablo 3

Blizzard at G-Star 2012

Weibo is basically Chinese version of Twitter, and Bashiok’s been using it to post amazing new secret info about the Diablo III expansion!

Ha ha ha. Had your hopes up for a millisecond there. No, actually he’s just taking pictures of his dinner and making jokes about his terrible facial hair.

Most people’s mustaches aren’t registered voters. But most people aren’t me.

Ah Bashy, how we miss him in the Diablo 3 community…? Thanks to DrazzlibKun for the links.
