    posted a message on Diablo himself. (Mephisto and Baal, too, while we're at it.)
    I'm just gonna throw my random idea out and let you break it down. So, we know a meteor hits the church in Tristram. The Diablo we see in the cinematic trailer, to me at least, looks kind of alienish. Did he come down from space on the meteor? Or is my inner sci-fi geek destroying all Diablo logic? After all, there is no space in the Diablo universe. It's Heaven, Hell, and Sanctuary. Although, now that I think of it, if the meteor came from the Heavens...it may have been an angel. This theory is full of holes, but what kind of diablo fansite would this be if we didn't bring up every last strange idea?

    As to the Diablo at his full strength thing...The one we saw in the trailer makes the other forms look like goatmen. However, if Diablo was at his full strength nobody would be able to beat the game because he would look at you and you would burst into flames. I think blizzard is just gonna make him look even more badass. If they do give him crazy epic powers they will have to do the same to the player.

    posted a message on Diablo 1 or Diablo 2
    I say Diablo 1. The story has some mystery in it, unlike Diablo 2. All you really know in the beginning is that you are in this town called Tristram...and bad things are happening. King Leoric's son has been kidnapped, the Archbishop Lazarus disappeared. You only learn Diablo's history as you travel deeper into the labyrinth. You learn about the Sin War, the inner workings of Heaven and Hell, the ways in which Diablo would easily control somebody (weak old man or child), and finally how the Horadrim trapped Diablo in the soulstone and hid it under the church. This all comes together in the end when you figure out that Lazarus is giving Prince Albrecht to Diablo as a physical host. Then the biggest twist of all when you defeat him. You unsuccessfully attempt to control him, and so you become that which you worked so hard to destroy.

    Diablo 2 had a good story, but it was pretty predictable. You knew everything about Diablo, the soulstones, and the history behind it all. It was just a matter of getting to him and finding out what your hero would do with the soulstone.

    IMO D2 has better gameplay, D1 has better story/atmosphere.

    posted a message on Φ Diablo I Moments
    I hadn't played Diablo or Diablo 2 in a while, and all this Diablo talk drove me over the edge, so I went out and bought the battle chest again. Played through both games in the past few days. I love the atmosphere in the first Diablo. I wish we would have seen more of King Leoric, he seemed like such an awesome character as soon as you enter his tomb and hear "The warmth of life has entered my tomb." When you hear that you know you are going up against true evil. I hope Diablo 3 will have those same kind of "I'm screwed" moments.

    I think the teaser is Diablo's new look. Remember, he changed between D1 and D2

    Diablo's appearance changed from Diablo 1 to Diablo 2. The Lich King looks slightly different. This could be the new look of Diablo.
