Shawn and I had more than an hour to play Diablo III together this time! When we started, my Demon Hunter, ThirtySeven, was at level 29. Shawn’s Barbarian, Smashez, was at level 28. They were about to run through the Keep Depths.

During their adventure, it became clear that Smashez has a last name – Stanzenfyr. (Say that one out loud).  He just cannot stop himself from hitting the barrels that have an oil lantern sitting on them. Seconds later, Smashez is standing in fire.

Chulock the Discordant, and his buddies, surrounded ThirtySeven. Giant tulip bulbs, everywhere!

We noticed something amusing about these creatures that resemble huge, sentient, tulip bulbs. They try and sneak up on you while you are attacking other monsters. Turn around, and they instantly stop moving: Oh no! She’s seen me! and then proceed to cover their “faces” with their “arms”. There! Now I’m invisible, therefore, safe. Bizarre!

Ghom was an interesting fight. I’ve done this before, but I did not recall the glowing balls of goo that would follow players around the room. Is that new?

I really like the artwork in the cut scenes.
