    Can't wait until we get to darker areas with those good ol' gory doodads; bodies, people on stretchers or hanging from chains. =D

    "Loyalty to the country always, loyalty to the government when it deserves it." -Mark Twain
    The country being Blizzard as a company, the government being the developers.Edit, not necessarily the developers but the games the company makes. My mistake =(

    It's funny because this just makes me think of the ignorant Americans speaking out against other Americans "Well if you don't like what the President and Congress have done, LEAVE AMERICA". Which makes absolutely no sense, as a patriot or fan in this case you wan't to see the company or your country upright itself, not fail.
    "Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that out country shall be righteous as well as strong." -James Bryce

    Ok, I promise, no more quotes! =D

    I hope Diablo sticks with it's roots as far as the blood/gore and people impaled on spikes. That to me, defines the evil entities in Diablo, no remorse to humans, torturous and whatever else. I was maybe 10 when I first started playing Diablo, loved the game and enjoyed the eery look of things. I was also a huge GTA fan. The people who abide to ratings should be parents who know what their kid can/can't handle, there are some kids out there who really can't put things into perspective like "This is just a game, this can't/wouldn't really happen." Thankfully I wasn't one of those kids.

    The only thing I hate seeing is Jay Wilson's quote of appealing to an "extremely broad audience". Why?! That's World of Warcraft's deal, this is a mature niche game, not some trash that soccer moms will be playing with their families. =(

    Also, WoW is NOT an influence.

    One second while I dig up the Jay Wilson interview.

    “There’s a lot of back and forth between the two games, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. We look at ‘World of Warcraft’ and the art style there is more cartoony than we wanted, but in terms of target identification and having a world that feels like you can move through it and spend lots of time in it, there’s a lot of elements to the art style that really work. We wanted an art style that really feels like Blizzard. And we pull new influences from a lot of areas. I think people over-emphasize the ‘World of Warcraft’ comparison. But are we influenced by ‘World of Warcraft’? Of course. As I think anyone who makes games nowadays, they have to be.”
    -Jay Wilson

    That being said, I don't mind the Art Direction. Blindly following a developer was pretty cute though.

    Edit: I think Bill was making a good point about Blizz North having a totally different feel than Irvine, now that everything is back there, it's hard not to be influenced by their biggest franchise.

    As long as they don't try to push Diablo3 out the door with a T sticker, they'll still outsell everything on pure hype. Hopefully we get to see decapitated bodies, bloody smears on the walls and iron maidens laying around(IE Catacombs).

    Have to agree with Ryan above me; the future of PvP in WoW is horrible in WotLK(Entire vehicle concept should be scrapped) and ill be leaning towards Warhammer's RvR.

    yes, yes they would. Think if you could make a series of mysterious images leading to an announcement literally hundreds of millions of people will hear about
    Yep, anyone who doesn't know how EVIL Blizzard is when it comes to teasing us, hasn't been paying attention =p

    Scroll down and look at the pictures of the runes. The first rune we see in the picture is not a Frostmourne rune, it's a Shael rune. The second rune is a Hel rune.

    I don't really fear too much honestly, I think Blizzard knows this is their Mature game for the older gamers. They've already got WoW for the masses so I think they'll be fine with catering to the niche of Diablo players.

    I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure that already happened? maybe?
    and www.pcgamer.com now takes you to games radar because they're merging their websites... the PCGamer portion of Gamesradar will now be run by the PCG staff.


    They announced the merge in December '07, the EU(European Union) approved the merge at most a month or so ago. Im too lazy to dig through E-trade stock news to find out the exact date but it's also been said the merge should be complete in or around July.

    You might be able to find out the timeline if you really want, just look around for ATVI news. That's Activision's ticker symbol.

    Blizzard and Activision are merging. The merge is already approved and I believe it should be complete sometime around July. Activision Blizzard is going to kick ass and take names basically.

    Anyways, really praying for D3. Can't wait for the WWI, or August..
