The Diablo series is among those touchstone gaming experiences that many of us RPG types grew up relishing. If to this day your MP3 collection isn't complete without "Tristram" and other tracks from Matt Uelman's masterful Diablo 2 score, we understand each other. So, when the opportunity to interview Diablo 3 Lead Designer Jay Wilson came up, we fell over ourselves rearranging our Leipzig GC schedule even though this isn't Ten Ton Hammer's standard MMORPG fare.

Get the skinny on the boss fights you saw in the D3 trailer, gather some hints on the changes in store for Blizzard's multiplayer portal, Battle.net, and see much more in this ten minute video!
