Kotaku, we need to talk. You all KNOW that Suikoden II is my favorite game of all time, yet in the six months since Diablo III's Reaper of Souls expansion came out, not ONE of you has told me about this incredible Luca Blight reference.

Until this past weekend, when Kotaku reader/hero Phil Caron told me about this, I had no idea that there was a fellow Suikoden II nut in Blizzard's midst. BUT:

So cool. If you're the person at Blizzard who made this happen, you are my new favorite, only to be superseded when someone at Konami stops screwing around and decides to release an HD collection of Suikoden 1-5 for PS4/Xbox One.

If I killed that unique mob, I definitely never noticed.

Admittedly, I missed the first few entries in the series. Still, on the topic of the series, Suikoden V was such a damn good game, with such a damn good story, ruined by such damn terrible voice acting. Seriously. Rarely has a game been so unjustly butchered by sound. They should release that in HD with the Japanese dialogue track and subtitles.

I also don't know why the hell they abandoned that series. Suikoden VI, where art thou?
