At the end of the cinematic, Tyrael says to Malthael: "The Nephalem...will...stop YOU!" and Malthael responds: "No one...can stop...DEATH!" which implies that Malthael is indeed the personified Death, if you will.
The expansion is called Reaper of Souls, and it seems that our title character is Malthael, because he's the Angel of Death. He reaps souls. At the end of the cinematic, he takes the Black Soulstone, which contains guess what...souls - seven of them. His cause could be just, which is why Tyrael's sword didn't hurt him. He wants to destroy the souls of the seven Lords of Hell. But of course, something will go wrong. Perhaps Malthael himself will consume the souls from the Soulstone, and then he will become Tathamet incarnate. Ahhhhh, speculations, speculations, speculations...

What Dauroth's keen eye spotted:
Thanks for mentioning it, no one replied in the thread you linked, so I guess I can take it here, if the OP is okay with that.
It seems Leah's necklace plays a more important role than we actually realize, as it appears on the Book Of Cain! There is a much larger pic of the amulet/necklace on the back of the book, but I can't seem to find the pic. I could only find this one, with the necklace appearing on the side of the book:

How do you screenshot while in Skyrim?
I had trouble with this, too, but I figured it out!
Go to My Documents/My Games/Skyrim and in it, you should see Saves folder, RendererInfo
, Skyrim and SkyrimPrefs. Open Skyrim file using Note Pad (it should open it on default with it) and on the top, you will see this:
sD3DDevice="Your graphic card model"
Under that, just add bAllowScreenshot=1, and it's all set up! Use Print Screen to take screenshots. Enjoy!
Here are my screens:

When I look at this video, I feel like I'm ages old, like some heavy burden was lifted from me. The end of the journey is upon us, Diablo Fans!

Here's the rough translation from Google translator (those whose native language is German should take the liberty and try to translate this better ;)):
The program schedule this year, many interviews with the persons named above (we strongly suspect all times that the visitors may again ask questions), a full orchestra that will play songs from the Blizzard games and much more. As a special surprise gamescom During car will be built on a street Rudolfplatz paintings of the "diabolical manner." There is so much to see. The entire program can read it here.
So yeah, no beta announcement!

That's what I've been getting at. Like Blizzard has crossed the line of being devoted to quality to just being inept.Quote from Robiwan
You know, trolling and bad feelings aside, I for one am no longer looking forward *as much* after a 5 hour beta experience.
Blizzard are really crap at either making games or hiring people. Because more than one person who has played beta with me has remarked that they cannot believe it took four years to make.
I defended by saying its just a beta... We'll see.
And no release date? I'm starting to view blizzard as that bully/jock at school.
I'm all for taking the time to make a game right, but then if you're so unsure of what you're doing and you have to go back and change things again, then lighten up on the goddamn marketing and PR and just be developers. Be just that for awhile. Show us your professionalism.
Instead it really just feels like...I know what it feels like! It feels like people in D2 trading games that would show you their anni or torch and start telling you they're willing to trade for it. So you tell them what runes you got or whatever, you start to want the item and you start to put your heart into the negotiations. You figure after all this deliberation that something is gonna come out of it. But instead the guy with the item you want is like, nah, I'll just keep it for myself, but it was nice of you to get to see it, right? Then he leaves the game.
So were you offering that pally torch or weren't you? Either fucking deal or don't. Quit fishing for praise from the public for your new artwork or your act 3 screenshots or your cinematics. Which by the way I completely do not understand why they would release that. The opening cinematic, at least for those of us into the stories of games, is that part you sit down for the first time to watch after the Blizzard logo. You get blown away by something you've seen in its entirety for the first time and then are you so ready, so mentally committed to the game at this point.
And don't just tell me I don't have to watch the cinematic (I haven't) because that's not the point here. The point is is Blizzard has become too confident and self-conscious at the same time. They are too confident because they abuse the goodwill of many fans. They are self-conscious because they constantly need praise for every incremental step of the game development instead of just letting us be satisfied with a finished product in its entirety. Their hubris has just totally changed them as developers. They dangle shit in front of the fans with this sleazy, yeah you know you want this sort of attitude.
Will the game be awesome when it comes out. Sure it will. But will it be so awesome that everything I just described above will seem totally justifiable in the end? Only if you're a tool who thinks Blizzard can do no wrong and that they've never shown contempt for their fans(face it guys, they do all the time).
Is anyone familiar with the story of Daikatana? Has anyone ever heard the marketing phrase, "John Romero's about to make you his bitch"? Well, Blizzard couldn't make a game as awful as Daikatana if they tried. But there are other factors that can make you not enjoy a game. One of those factors is the journey you took to get there. They announced D3 in June of 2008...2008. And they've jerked fans around for so long with vague answers about its release. Oh but it's okay because Blizzard has always stated that it's done when it's done. Fair enough. So then get it done and shut the hell up! Turn down your marketing machine for just a second and stop trying to distract people away from your ineptitude and lack of consensus and cohesion as developers by releasing all your little updates and your actual in game cinematics for god's sakes. Is nothing sacred? Is the excuse that there are still plenty of surprises enough to show the fucking opening cinematic of the game?
All this being jerked around by Blizzard is going to distract me a bit when I'm actually playing the game. Like Jay Wilson is going to be breathing down my neck and whispering in my ear, "It's good, right? Oh yes, it's so fucking good isn't it?" And I'm like, gyaaaah! Stop rubbing your greasy image all over this game, Jay Wilson! Stop making me your bitch! Ayyyyy!
