Okay, cool cutscene so far. Everything’s fine.
Hehe, well, I’m immature. I should keep my mind out of the gutter. I mean, Zoltun Kulle just wants the spell to work. Blizzard would never make a sexual joke.
Okay, maybe I’m not immature. Maybe that’s exactly what Blizzard meant. Now that he’s… finished… how does he feel?
While not as obvious as the previous screens, this could be considered a description of one’s feelings after sex.
It sure seems to me that there is a lot of sexual imagery in this scene. From a biological standpoint, sex is used to procreate, to create life. It allows a new life to be born. In this part of Diablo III, the ritual is used to resurrect, to revive life. It allows an old life to be reborn. How fitting.
Also, I wasn’t the only one laughing. Moogle was definitely giggling as well.
Damn I hate Kulle, he totally ruined Act II for me.
this is the story I walked away with from ACT II:
Adria: We need the Black Soulstone to defeat the bad demon for this Act.
Player: Ok where is it?
Adria: I do not know, but we can get the information from a head of a wizard.
Player: Ok that sounds easy, one little dungeon
Back at base
Adria: alright, lets get this head talking
Kulle: sup, I’m evil.
Adria: Do you know where the Black Soulstone is?
Adria: then tell us.
Kulle: No, I’m not helping you unless I get my body back, by the way I’m evil
Player: Ok what do you need?
Kulle: I require two vials of my blood.
Player: where are they?
Kulle: In two different dungeons, in the dessert.
Player: Ok I have the vials of blood, now what?
Kulle: I need you to take them to my lair, my evil lair…in the dessert
More Adventure time!
Player: Ok I crawled through this dungeon, at the place for ritual. Are you ready?
Kulle: No. I need you to poor my blood on two machines.
Player: Let me guest, these machines are in-
Kulle: -In two different dungeons, that’s right. Did I mention I was evil yet?
Even More Adventure time!
Player: Alright I have activated these machines, now can we get-
Kulle: I demand for you to get my body back
Player: Your body, where is-
Kulle: -in a third dungeon.
Shadow Realm Adventure time
Player: I have done everything you asked for, lets bring this old guy back
Kulle: “At last, after ten thousand years I’m free! It’s time to-”
Player: -to get us that Black Soulstone.
Kulle: Alright, just follow me into the separate room
Enters battle arena
Kulle: Surprise! I’m evil, and after you have done all these great things for me I’m going to turn on you and become the boss for this area. Surprised huh?
Player: No. not surprised at all. Let me vent some much needed anger about this whole side-quest out on your newly-reincarnated-no-need-to-thank-me-body.
Retrieves Black Soulstone.
Leah/Adria/Tyrael: OMG who would have guested that this clearly evil wizard betray us?!
Yeah, he really wanted everyone to know how evil he was. It would have been far more interesting if he ended up one of those admittedly overused the-ends-justifies-the-means characters willing to commit terrible evils to save the world. That might not be very original, but it would have been more complex than this guy reminding us that he’s evil every couple minutes.
