    posted a message on What will you use to theorize about D3's storyline?
    So, with the book of Cain out, what else will you use to theorize about D3's storyline? (apart from the Book of Cain obviously)

    Here are a couple choices:

    a. The Sin War books
    b. Diablo 2 story/cinematics
    c. The Sword of Justice comic
    d. D3 released cinematics
    e. The Diablo 1 story/cinematics

    I tried to run a poll for this but I have not been able to, having some issues on this computer.

    Personally I will focus on the Book of Cain and the D3 released cinematics as well as a little look at the Sword of Justice comics.

    What about you?

    I sure as hell don't think they'll do it, but I would absolutely love it if Zayl showed up. BTW the comic is completely cannon. It's the story of what happened to Tyraels sword, and in essence tyrael.

    I agree with you about the non-canonical lore. I also believe it will not be related.

    I am glad to hear that the comic is canon. :D (Where did you hear this?)

    -ZTZaorish :d3d:

    I'm not certain if it truly is canon, but according to a poster on the D3 forum there's a mention of Jacob on page 127 of Book of Cain.

    It is canon. I have the Book of Cain and it does mention Jacob. :D

    posted a message on Games to play while waiting for Diablo 3? (multiple merged threads)
    I personally I can't stop playing Minecraft. I host my own server with some friends, and it is near never-ending fun.
    That being said, minecraft isn't everyone's cup of tea. (I never thought it would be mine *no pun intended*

    I also am leveling a barbarian solo and trying to get him to Baal. Unfortunately I am stuck at Act IV, the mobs are just in too big of packs for my barb and barb merc to handle! :/
    So, I spend 30 min- 1 hour a day leveling him.

    I would play other games, but my computer is too weak.
    I also recommend Civilization 5. (quite alot of depth to it.)
    Additionally, I really enjoy Rise of Nations, especially with my friends. (Strategy game buff :D)

    If there were any tie-ins to happen in Diablo III, the non-canon stuff would then in effect be canon. In my opinion. :P

    Yeah, of course. I just use non-canonical to refer to the books. :D

    Thanks for your opinion, I hope more people post about this. I thought this thread would be a little more popular.

    As some of us know there are many Diablo books out there and some of them are not canon. (or have not been declared to be Canon) Non Canon books: Moon of the spider, Legacy of Blood, The Black Road, and Demonsbane. (I personally don't know how legitimate the comic is.)


    This has brought me to wonder, as I am sure many of you may have wondered in the past too.

    1. How much (if any) effect or mentioning of the events that happened in the non-cannon diablo books will be mentioned in Diablo 3. (or reffered to)

    2. Do you want these tie -ins from the non-canonical books to occur in D3 at some point?

    posted a message on Reading up on D1 & D2

    He is right. The book of Cain goes a step deeper in to the details of the story.

    Additionally, it helps you speculate into the events which may occur in Diablo 3.

    If you want a really in-depth version of what happens before Diablo I (which sets up the story) you can check out the sin war novel. They may not be the most exciting. (In my opinion) They are helpful nonetheless. These books do not describe everything that happened before (like details on the mage clan wars) but they are quite helpful in giving you a good base.

    I just wish the other stories were cannon. (legitimate)

    posted a message on (Poll) Your definition of -early-
    It really seems that "early" is all about your perception.

    I personally believe early should be until around April, but I am willing to extend early to May.

    That is because I don't feel the need to have 4 months be the "middle of the year".

    I can accept 4 early / 4 mid / 4 late or 5 early / 2 mid / 5 late

    Either way i believe that we are on the final stretch guys! It will be here soon! -.

    Quote from GladHeHasBeta

    lawl. i bet anything i can go through my first solo playthrough of the entire game without dying. i always play great defense in games. even when i first started playing hell in D2 i never died solo. its just when more ppl join and you get 1 shotted by something stupid only because they have insane power cuz of the extra players in the game.

    Ego much?

    posted a message on Diablo 3 Q2 Target Launch.
    Wow... so much nerd rage...

    This is GOOD news: "We should expect more details of a release in the upcoming weeks." How is this not good news? They actually mention that they will inform us of release date in the following weeks.This is as close as we have ever gotten to them actually stating the release date.

    As for the Q2 not possibly being early 20120 I am confused by people's anger.
    Don't tell me you were still expecting the game to be in your hands by Q1, it is Feb10 now, Q1 ends in March right?

    Additionally "EARLY" just means what people perceive it to mean.
    If blizz had said "Our definition of early is the first 4 months, and we will release the game in that time"
    And then they messed up I would understand. But they didn't say that.
    They just said they are trying to get the game out in "early" 2012. That is all.. "TRY"

    I view early as anywhere until april, maybe even May.
    So please, quit your complaining. Because the people complaining today, will be the ones complaining if the game comes out too early and isn't up to their standards.

    Love you guys,

    posted a message on What gender will you pick for your first character and why? Also, what gender are you?
    I am a male.

    I will probably pick a male character. This is because I want to play the monk and I don't like the female skin/look that much.

    How about you?

    posted a message on South Korea bans late night gaming for under 16 year olds.
    Quote from Trombone

    Stupid fucking rule. South Korea is startling to look more like their Northern brothers. Leaves me wondering why they oppose each other so much when they seemingly share so many values.

    Wow, how ignorant...

    I live in South Korea right now.
    Gaming is not a past time here, it is a plague.

    I don't know about you sister's students, but I, never see any of my middle school students out late at night. (3 am)
    This may depend on how good the school is. Maybe your sister is working at a school with a lower ranking and poorer students.
    Poorer students tend to mess around more.

    Anyways, South Korea has a "bali bali" lifestyle.
    Meaning they live life on the fastlane. They take this fast living to the extreme. They work really hard, they study really hard. They try to meet their friends no matter how little time they have, they eat really spicy food.

    Everything they do is based on this "bali bali" ideology. This is one of the reasons they have surged forward as a world economy from being a war-torn country.

    Additionally the after-school activities are usually taking part in a Hagwon class. This is basically after school school. Yeah, that's right. After school school. It is a private institution / academy where students go to study the various subjects that they study at school. Some of them stay there really late. (9pm-12am finishing time) Education is paramount in South Korea, and parents push their kids so hard.

    I am not surprised your sister's students are doing that. The boys really love gaming, and they are so busy with these Hagwon that they are not able to have some time to relieve their stress.Basically, they live life at such a fast pace, that these kids even consider sacrificing a couple hours of sleep in the morning to be able to game. I guess you could say it keeps them going.

    Anyways it is sad that things are this way, but they are.
    All I can say my friends, is consider yourself lucky because man if you wanna succeed here you need to live and breath studying.
    I hope this helped you understand.

    posted a message on Favorite/least favorite Angiris Council member and why
    Quote from Daemaro

    Favorite: Imperius, excited to see how the story around him unfolds. Total badass.

    Least Favorite: Auriel. Too goody, goody for me and even the implied relationship between her and Mephisto in the Sin War made me sick. Although it's probably not canon and was very vague anyways.

    My pick is exactly the opposite.

    I believe Auriel gives hope to others. That type of person/angel is the best way to end the suffering in the world of Sanctuary. If Uldyssian and the Nephalem had med Auriel during the sin war in a personal matter. They would have felt that Heaven is not an opponent, but an ally. They could have perhaps even made an alliance against hell. As we all know though, things didn't go that way.

    Imperius on the other hand reminds me of an overzealous Crusader. He will slay all that is in his way, and will take his allies down with him in the process. Mark my words, his overzealousness will only cause trouble for Heaven and the Nephalem. Additionally, he reminds me of Arthus in Warcraft III. Always angry and lost in his own hatred, and his need to "purify the land". Makes me sick.
