Rain of Toads

Diablo 3 (a computer game to be released May 15) contains a spell called Rain of Toads:


Rain of Toads
Cause toads to rain from the sky that deal 130% weapon damage as Poison to enemies in the area over 2 seconds.

Watch the spell in action here. It's just a few seconds.

I doubt this is a Magnolia homage. Probably just biblical/plague-ish... this class also has a locust spell. But this is still pretty funny.

that was the most general reference ever.

That could work in Magnolia as well if they remade it as an apocalypse movie feat Jim Kurring battling acid frogs raining down on his car.

Like I said, it was probably a biblical reference.

I would like to know how many Magnolia fans will play this game, and that class, and use that spell specifically to roleplay their amphibian smiting fantasies. I'm considering it.

If you're going to buy this game on the basis of being a Magnolia fan, can I borrow $200?
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

I've already downloaded the pre-order digital release.

And no.

In order to play that game don't you need a PC that Nasa built?

Nope. It's actually pretty undemanding. You can even decrease the graphics enough to make it look like a game from 1997.
