Yay henchmen, but more like heroes. ;)

I wonder if they cranked up the difficulty of the game to compensate for having a follower. It's like Guild Wars > GW2 in reverse.
The henchmen in Diablo 2 kind of sucked. They usually died almost instantly, making it quite a waste of money to hire them every time. Or maybe that's just me sucking at the game. Hell, I never made it past the damn desert because of the insta-kill boss. And I couldn't be bothered to keep running back to my corpse at the risk of perhaps never retrieving all my equipment.
Oh, I really hope they've tuned the difficulty better this time. I do not want to be locked in small rooms with overpowered bosses ever again. I want to be able to kite, which is how I finished Diablo 1 on nightmare mode.

As a general comment on what I've seen from Diablo III... Does anyone else think Diablo isn't as intimidating as he was in past titles? Granted, it was the late '90s and I was maybe 14 when I played the first game, but still. I think the in-dungeon darkness of the first game was much moodier. If people are complaining about D3 being lighter, let's not forget about D2, by comparison.

Ok, that boss you're talking about has been a major complaint of a lot of people. He is really tough unless you are willing to fight him using a specific tactic (e.g. sorc using the fire skill that leaves a flame where you run). If you level up a few levels extra before fighting him, it gets easier. For the rest of the game, hench are fairly well-tuned.
I remember Duriel was a problem because he could kill my sorc before I loaded his damn room. Ahh, the days of a 400mhz pentium.

Blizzard advertized no loading screens or lag in Diablo 2, the next room would automatically load while playing so entering it would be seamless. Well, except for Duriel and his "Inflict lag" skill.
