A couple of Diablo 3 morsels to chew over today.

Andrew Vestal, Senior Localization Producer at Blizzard will be holding a session at next March’s GDC to be held in San Francisco.

There’s a series of four videos up on Diablo3.tv by Red Team Gaming in which Sibcoe and Ken discuss the state of different aspects of Diablo 3.

They’re worth a listen, as the guys have been playing the Diablo series for years and aren’t wearing rose-tinted glasses as far as Diablo 2 is concerned; there are no histrionics but rather the discussions are balanced (whether you agree with all their points or not). So pick a topic you’re interested in and tune in.
