comment Item Property “Slain Monsters Rest in Peace” in Diablo II
No. It basically nullifies the ability of the corpse to be used as a weapon (or to be resurrected). Druids' Vines, Barbarians' looting, Paladins' Redemption, all of those still work, but the corpse cannot be used for any skill that causes damage or brings the enemy back for more.

comment Is it realistically possible to play Diablo 2 LOD on Hell difficulty using a necromancer with all points in summoning?
I generally found the Necromancer and Paladin to be two opposites that definitely attract, so if you play online with a friend, try this combination. The paladin's auras spread to your minions, so Thorns, Fanaticism, Holy Freeze etc are naturals for a Paladin in the same party as a minion mancer.

comment Should I play Diablo 1 and / or Diablo 2 before playing Diablo 3?
@Nick: I agree; D1/D2 were a step up from MUDs, but compared to something like Guild Wars or WoW they pale in comparison. D3 was designed by the guys that made the most successful MMO in history; the only concern is that they didn't make D3 feel too much like an MMORPG; the Diablo franchise has always been more an MMOTPW (MMO third-person whacker).

As far as story, you'd only have to play through the first difficulty level to figure out what's going on, but that's only a third of the game, and by that time you'll have only just discovered the most powerful skills, never mind pumping them to their potential.

Playing alone is a real grind, literally; the hirelings are crap after about Act III, and without a group to help you, you will need to level more than normal to have the HP and either the tank-ability or the stand-off skills to avoid getting swamped (a Paladin with Zeal, Thorns and Prayer/Redemption can solo almost anywhere; the Amazon's Dodge skills help her run-and-gun, a "tweaker" Sorceress can lay down Frost Orbs fast enough that nothing gets close, and Necromancers live and die on the strength of their meat shields.

comment Is the Wii-U compatible with Gamecube games?
But then you have to buy the games again. I would say if you have a Wii, keep it; the Wii-U will be an HD console (finally) and as such you'll want to use HDMI for it anyway, so you can keep your Component-in for the "classic" Wii.

comment Good resource for Pieces of Heart in Twilight Princess?
I asked for a guide because to answer this question with pics and descriptions of all the Heart Piece locations would either be a monumental effort or blatant plagiarism. Much like the Poe Souls, it's easier and less legally questionable to simply link.
