Late evening Friday June 27 - After 8pm various fansites folks had dinner with Nethaera, Karune, Bashiok and various Blizzard employees, most forum moderators of some of the supported language. We were transported in a large bus and we cornered Bashiok (Diablo III Community Manager) in the bus ... the guy would do good on PR department or playing with the Dodgers ... he wouldn't spill the beans about what you know .... (d3)
The dinner took place in front of the Porte de Versallies where WWI will take place at tomorrow. We saw huge banners outside the premises showing the recently unveiled WWI logo.
We had a great night. I took a very bad and shaky video with the MacBook iCam -- which hope to upload tomorrow for those who want to see it. Mostly talked about Wrath of the Lich King and Starcraft 2 --- the unannounced game was off limits. Even with straight questions slapped back and forth we got a wall of ice. Nothing came from their lips.
Later we took the train together back to the hotel which is around 5 blocks near the Arc of Triumph. It was mega fun to get lost inside the train tunnels twice ... minimap was turned off or the dwarven ale did some oddly effects. Got back late past midnight to the hotel and now getting some sleep to wake up in the morning. We were asked to get there before the opening ceremony at 11:45am Paris Time. Hopefully, I will be able to update every few minutes once the announcement gets made. If a Diablo game is announced -- make sure to watch out for my Submit Questions thread in the news & Announcements to forward them asap to the developers.
