Like so many other nerds around the world, I started playing Diablo 3 last night. Don't worry, this contains no spoilers. I'm not that far into it, myself. Still, I felt the need to point something out, something that strikes me as kind of painful:
The new prominent character, Leah.
-an attractive young woman
-an orphan, both her parents having died when she was young
-the relative of an important character from the previous game
-a kind of caretaker to said important character
-so wholeheartedly giving of herself in the aid of others it makes the villagers question how it's humanly possible
-a competent fighter in her own right
-in possession of a tremendous power no one really understands in any way
-not really in control of said power (it comes in times of great need!)
-viewing it more as a frustration than anything
-suspected to have inherited it from her mother, though this has yet to be explained in any way
Really, Blizz? Really?
Whoever wrote this character, and everyone who could have prevented her from being in this game but didn't, deserves to be slapped.
Aside from that, I'm certainly enjoying it!
