The Diablofans.com Diablo Development Tracker has caught a whopper of a post this week where Bashiok answered SEVERAL questions regarding the upcoming title in the Diablo series; Diablo 3. A user posted several questions about some of the things he'd seen in gameplay footage of Diablo 3, and asked several other important questions about Diablo 3 and the franchise itself.
Here's the Plethora of Questions (And Answers) post from Diablofans.com:
A user, who mysteriously didn't go by the name "El Guapo", posted a plethora of Diablo 3 questions. Bashiok was nice enough to respond to many of 'em and here's what he had to say:
"I think the last thing I heard from Jay on it in public was something along the lines of "Ok fine we'll just commit to a hardcore mode here and now" outside of that no details have been released."
"Haha, you did my work for me. Yes, soon. :D"
"I'm not aware of any, though there are some things that will hold your character in place. They're usually resolved through dealing damage though, so it's not like you actually lose control of your character. It's up to you how fast you regain movement control. Quite a few trap and monster abilities have yet to be designed though, so I wouldn't count anything out. In general I'm not sure full loss of character control fits into this game."
"A serious answer would just depress everyone."
"I've called him Chef Boyarsky, but I don't think it caught on."
"You mean mongrels, or how many abilities does he have that summon creatures? Neither would be final so I guess it doesn't matter. :P"
"You only need walk over/near gold to pick it up."
"People will want more of it."
"Hrm, interesting question. I'm not sure. Probably not."
"I hadn't noticed that. I'm not sure."
"I would guess that there will be so you can take a screenshot without UI elements."
"Probably a +arcane damage stat."
"Unless I'm mistaken, World Map."
