I was surprised, really, the figure in the icefield didn't resemble Diablo to me. I suppose it was something to say "hell has frozen over", but also probably to confuse with WotLK. Either way, I'm excited. It looks great, and indeed, it has been a long, long time. I hope they've improved the controls a bit though, was never big on the clickfest.
The full splash unveiling!
This is my Sig. There are many like it but this one is mine.
I couldn't agree more, about the eye candy that is. I am a sucker for a pretty game, then sometimes I get stuck with a crappy game that looks great!
I'm kind of digging the D3 look. Blizzard's graphics have always been about style over state of the art, and if that means more people with slightly older computers can enjoy the game too, then all the better.
Yeah penguin, seems they went a new direction and adopted the WoW style. I remember at first everyone criticized WoW's art, saying that EQ2 was far more advanced but we all know the end result of that competition.
I reinstalled D2 after getting excited about D3 but it is HARD playing at either 800x600 or in windowed mode on 1680 x 1050 resolution.
Haha, yeah, it is. I've been replaying with some friends, and we have trouble getting past the second act without getting bored. I don't think it's just the graphics that have aged though, since there are plenty of games that are 10+ years old I still enjoy playing.
I see what people mean when they say D3 has a WoW style, since it is no longer quite so GRIM and DARK, but again, I think that's a good thing. People are always complaining that nextgen games have no colours, and, well, here they are! It looks really nice, and I think the fans will see, it still maintains a serious tone.
Never played a Diablo game before, but would like to try D3.
If you get the chance recovering, check out the new Diablo 3 page and read up on the lore from the first two games. It's one of the few multi-sequel games with a good storyline.
I'm very excited. I hope it is free to play online.
Witch doctor class seems interesting but it really isn't my playing style. I wonder what other new character classes they will introduce.
Yes very excited and hope it can be free to play online.
