Were you planning to merely play Diablo III on your cluttered desk full of empty Red Bull cans? That’s no way to experience a sequel twelve years in the making. You have to replicate a dungeon to properly experience it — much like the setup you see above.
Not only does (going to go out on a limb here) he have a ton of lit candles, empty jars and a mortar and pestle, but the time was spent to actually create notes on parchment. Impressive.
Sure, you could argue that lighting 20 candles and constantly having fire around you is a nussiance, but imagine the atmosphere!
