    I can't seem to get past 15. I tried putting in the missing letters in the sentence, among other things, nothing works though.

    I doubt this is the opening cinematic of the game. I think it's most likely the Act III cinematic.

    posted a message on No release date?
    Well, checking the timeframe between Cataclysm and SC2's CE announcements and their respective releases, I think it's safe to assume that Diablo III should come out either on February 14th, or the 21st.

    posted a message on Diablo 3 release date and CE, we won't know till blizzcon?
    I very much doubt it's gonna happen.

    Not only because, historically, they've never announced any CE/release date details at BlizzCon, but also because if we're going to see the game this year, the release date needs to be announced around 2 months before it, which corresponds to the beginning of October. By then, beta will be 1 month in, so they'll have a clearer view of how ready the game is for release, and we can expect either a release date or a delay announcement before BlizzCon.

    posted a message on Diablo III Beta System Requirements
    Is it just me or is this game terribly optimized?

    Not only does it require a dual-core CPU (which SC2 doesn't, and it's a very CPU-intensive game with loads of units and AI processing) but it's the first Blizzard game to require a high-range GPU in the minimum requirements (even if they're old GPU models). These requirements are almost equivalent to the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ones, which is a much more technology and detail-heavy game.

    Furthermore, basically every gameplay video I've seen, especially from the F&F beta, has some form of framerate and stuttering issues that make the gameplay frustrating (not even considering latency issues). I seriously hope that some real optimization is going on right now, along with the soon to be added new graphical features and that the requirements will be lower by the game's release, cause this looks VERY underwhelming for a game which prides itself in relying much more on its art style than its graphical technology to look good.

    It really sucks that someone who can run SC2 and Cataclysm decently may very well have problems running Diablo III, considering it's a game with such low graphical fidelity (mainly 3D models and textures).

    Anyone finds it weird that Belial and Azmodan aren't in the monsters list ?

    Belial = Saddle
    Azmodan = Fetlock

    also, Withers = The Butcher (Flesh Carver)
    Dressage = Gluttony (Thousand Pounder)
    Jumper = Leader of the Coven (no idea)

    posted a message on Diablo 3 and Anti-Aliasing
    Well, the beta version from the press event had an FSAA option, so I think we'll have Anti-aliasing in D3.

    http://diablo3.judgehype.com/index.php?page=presstour2011-demo-options

    Partial translation:
    Resolution
    1024x768 to 1680x1050, with many resolutions 16 / 9 and 16/10

    Quality textures
    High, Medium

    Shadow quality
    Off, low, medium, high

    Physics quality
    Low, high

    FSAA level
    Off

    Keep in mind that this is probably far from final, since a few settings seem to be missing, as well as the fact that there are very few options compared to WoW and SC2, which have highly scalable video settings.

    posted a message on Predict Diablo III's System Requirements
    As we wait for news about the press event and the beta, let's speculate on one of the aspects we don't know much about - the game's system requirements. Although we don't know how well the game will be optimized and how many graphical options it'll have, we can estimate based on what we know both in terms of the game's visuals and its technical aspects.
    Let's see who gets the closest guess to the official requirements once they're revealed.

    I'll start with my prediction:

    Minimum Requirements:
    OS: Windows XP/Vista/7 (updated with the latest Service Packs) including DirectX 9.0c
    CPU: 1.5 GHz Pentium IV or equivalent AMD Athlon Processor
    RAM: 1 GB RAM (1.5 GB required for Windows Vista/7)
    GPU: 128 MB PCIe nVidia GeForce 6600 GT or ATI Radeon 9800 Pro video card or better
    HDD: 10 GB free hard drive space

    Recommended Requirements:
    OS: Windows Vista/7
    CPU: Dual Core 2.0 GHz Processor
    RAM: 2 GB RAM
    GPU: 640 MB nVidia GeForce 8800 GTS or 512 MB ATI Radeon HD 3850 or better
    HDD: 10 GB free hard drive space

    posted a message on D3 Beta Before August 17th?
    I'm guessing that they're aiming to start beta around the same time as GamesCom, but due to the possibility of delays in terms of getting the beta build ready, they're not risking bringing a new version of the game there if it's not ready by then.
    Still, they could bring the BlizzCon 2010 demo, though that would kinda suck.

    I dunno, but I've got a hunch that D3 will be skipping this year's GamesCom to concentrate all efforts on the beta.
    I would expect an updated beta build at BlizzCon 2011, though.

    Sure but that's all old news.
    These openings are very recent and basically confirm that D3 will be indeed released for consoles.
    I'm pretty sure it there was already a confirmation in the old news itself.

    But if people want to make a thread for each batch of posts created for the console development team, so be it.

    Edit- just thought I would quote this part of the old news.
    Quote from Sixen

    Blizzard has said many a-times that they were tossing around the idea of joining the console wars... Now it's more than just a thought; they are currently hiring for three different Console positions on the D3 Development Team: a Senior Producer, Lead Designer, and a Lead Programmer. However, as this other version gets further into testing, I am sure we will see more positions opening up in this regard as long as all goes well.

    There's a part I've put in bold just so you don't miss it.

    Hmm, ok.
    My apologies, then. Should've posted this in the old topic.

    We also had a news thread on that.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Blizzard dont release d3 for consoles PIRRTY FREAKIN PLXXXXXXXXXXXX!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    what he said!

    -

    Could this delay the PC release?

    I'd say it's very unlikely. The game is already going through Alpha, with Beta coming in the next few months.
    I think there's a smaller subset of the team working on the console ports, but most of the work right now is focused on the PC/Mac versions, which will be out first.

    I would expect the announcement of the console versions at BlizzCon, with those releases coming in mid-2012, or something like that.

    Has anyone seen the new job openings for the expected console version of D3?

    PS3 Specialist

    Graphics Specialist

    Network Specialist

    I don't know whether this is old news or not, but I just found this out yesterday.

    Seems like they're definitely going ahead with the console versions of D3 (at least PS3, probably X360 too).
