Diablo III will be unleashed May 15th

Has it been long enough since Diablo II? I remember when I was one of the first beta testers because I worked on a popular StarCraft fansite, and had early release copies of StarCraft: BroodWar and Diablo 2. That was back in 1999, over 12 years ago.

The 3rd installment of Blizzard North’s Diablo series is set to be released in just two months. The announcement was made for the game back in 2008, and it comes as no surprise with Blizzard that quality games take a lifetime to create. Literally. Decades, in this case.

I’d have to assume Assassin’s Creed 4 would be current-day street thugs and the like.

However now we can speculate that Abraham Lincoln is a Templar, and John Wilkes Booth is an Assassin, right?

Perhaps that the Assassin’s are Native Americans (Indians) whereas the Templars are Colonists? Assassin’s Creed III: Oregon Trail? Discuss!
