Titan Quest Interview, Part One

The guys at news0r have published the first portion of an interview they did with an unnamed member of the Titan Quest development team. Here's a small taste:
Q: Were there any games that served as inspiration for Titan Quest?

A: I think of Titan Quest roughly as a cross between Diablo and Age of Empires. We get the genre and fast-action gameplay from Diablo, and the historical topic, gorgeous graphics, and high production values from Age of Empires.
