    * Same sense of humor. I think it might actually be a bit funnier than the predecessors.
    * While hit and miss, the enemy animations and AI seems considerably better
    * New intriguing and bizarre weapon attributes, like a gun that allows you to spend the ammo in the clip and drop a turret version of the gun
    * The game contains my new favorite class of all time: The Hunter. His pets are very great and I like his one liners on kills "Have fun rotting.."
    * The aforementioned "Fart cave"
    * Bosses can be very very difficult
    * A variety of locations to vary the art style.
    * The plot characters are funny and plentiful.
    * More of what made Borderlands fun, less of what didn't.
    * They have an interesting patch system that will alert you in-game when there is a patch available and can apply it without fully exiting the game.
    * Difficulty settings are individual and don't effect teammates... I really don't understand how that works, but it sounds interesting.

    Cons:

    * No Handsome Jack
    What? Boo! This probably kills my enthusiasm for it.

    Though I'll probably play it in the coming months once they get all the bugs sorted out...

    Well, if it helps, there are really two Handsom Jack-like characters in the game; competing megalomaniacal megacorp CEOs... the CEO of Atlas, and the CEO of one of the new weapons manufacturers in the game, Maliwan. But, while they play a major role in the mid-game narrative, they are not the primary antagonists.

    Diablo III -

    It's not new by a long shot. It's not a new concept. The graphics aren't amazing. The story line is incredibly simplistic. The battles on lower difficulty levels quickly become quickly become little more than an exercise in left click. At higher difficulty levels they become an exercise in patience as all that happens is that the enemies gain more and more HP and more and more elemental resistance. There really isn't much in the way of strategy. If you like solving puzzles then forget about it. There are very few objectives which make the player do more than retrace their steps to find another passage. The game is little more than a dressed up version of the old, OLD ASCII game, Rogue.

    So why play the game?

    One word, "Loot".

    Diablo, as it always has, produces prodigious amounts of loot and there's always a possibility of finding some ultra rare, uber powerful armor or weapon. That's what the game is all about and no other similar game has done it better. You kill and you loot. That's it. You don't really need to think. You don't really need to worry about how to handle a battle. You just need to kill and loot. It works.
