    They actually do much for lore. If it was another company instead of Valve, they'd not even add the skills lore description.

    I also noticed this and actually like the Lore that is written on items. It reminds me of Dark/Demon Souls, where Lore is almost entirely told through the environment or item descriptions, it adds a depth to the game.
    Much preferable to the game just outright telling you what happened.

    Hero bios have no easy access, you have to go to the library to load it, it's not pre-loaded.
    One of the many reasons why the current grid view is horrible. Never forget:

    Absolutely. I mean if they can write good ones, let them do it but if they can't, why force them to do it, right?

    Yea, I really miss these little bits of lore. Every so often a new item has them, but the trend seems to be not.
