But Matt Uelmen is not involved and that pretty much rules it out as being as awesome as D1 and 2 soundtracks.
/edit: It seems a lot more ambient than the previous soundtracks. Uelmen managed to combine an active type of music with ambient tendencies. But yeah, this new stuff is definitely very moody and foreboding, so I'm happy I guess.
/edit2: Actually, this sounds a lot more like the ambient music in Fallout 1 and 2. Weird.
This would make me happy for the time being. I can do my thing where I test all the different settings, as well as SLI and CPU usage. Fun! Expect lots of boring screenshots with framerate counters if this comes to fruition!
Oh, and I can complain about mouse lag, of course.
Because it's a gigantic potential market, that in a couple of years can bring massive returns? D3 will require an Internet connection and Battle.net, so that eliminates piracy. Millions of players + cut on real money transactions = profit.
Russell Brower is really good and can cover a great many styles. I like Uelman a lot too, and I'm probably honestly a little more interested in Torchlight 2 currently but he's a little too atmospheric in a lot of spots for me outside of centerpieces like Tristram.
