yeah... Im going to play HC.. but not as a main source of playing.. I just hate the idea of all my work lost in the void... but this in a way would "save" it... I like this idea.. it would get me to play HC more.
This is a great idea! Certainly a good incentive to play this mode, and sound very feasable.
The 30-sec-before-death video feature would be much more complicated, technically, and even more if it just serves the single purpose of having such videos. So unless they add some kind of replay feature for the game itself i don't see that happening.
Account space is finite. "All" of your dead characters isn't reasonable. Your top X could be.
In Diablo 3 though, level is rather meaningless. 60 is the start of the "real" game. The only thing worth recording and showing off would be achievements. So we'd need a system to do that for this feature to be worthwhile.
Q. Can you talk a little bit more about the Halls of the Dead?
JW: The idea is when you lose a hardcore character, you don't really want that character to go away forever and you don't want it to take up a character slot.
Well, it'll probably be optional where you can choose to free up the slot by archiving the dead character into the Halls of the Dead. You'll see the name, the gear on death, and maybe some other stuff.
