Diablo® III

blizzard should have bought relic games

you guys ever play dawn of war? thats where jay wilson made his name
diablo 3 is where he lost it lol

anyways, THQ mishandled its properties and pretty much bled relic untill they went belly up
but when they went to sell the company SEGA purchased it for a mere 26 million dollars
beating out bethesda in the auction

dawn of war 1 and 2 were both alot of fun and well made
homeworld 2 was revolutionary for its time
and i never played company of heroes but i hear good things

seemed like a good chance to gain alot of designer talent and established properties

he worked on SC2 a game that delivers whereas d3 fails in comparison. He really should just stick to RTS.

D3's story I found was pretty !@#$ty, choiceless, and pointless not to mention going thru it 4 times over.

SC2's story was intense, various choices, various branches, various events even minigames on the Hyperion.

Big differences just based on the singleplayer aspect.

matter of fact dawn of 2 has more "fun factor" in pvp that sc does
its not about micro and has more combat

weird his name comes up when you google Jay Wilson & Starcraft2.

He was brought on as the original Lead Designer for it then went to Dustin Browder. if you leave a game before release during development you get 0 accreditation or can get 0.

Dawn of War 2 was actually trash the Last Stand mode that is.

DOW2 is also dead and has been ages now just try finding people to play with online there are 100 times more people playing broodwar.
