you all seem to be forgetting that nothing is perfect in life and seeing as its probly no pay2play u all will atleast try it and they will make their profit. im not saying blizzard would do something but u all kno that if they wanted to it would happen that way. im sure all the die hard fanatics would disagree but if they loved diablo as much as they do theyd buy it and find out for themselves how much they dislike it. its like u all said a perfect game would be worth any amount of wait but perfect doesnt exist there's close to perfect but no. oh and technology always evolving so a diamond one day a pile of crap another. then its a classic and like oil
Things like this piss me off. Just explains why they chose their current art direction, $.
"Kotaku: In that case do you think that this might work in your favour, that WoW players, for example might be persuaded to try Diablo III? Jay Wilson: Yeah, actually, I do think that. I think players like things that they are familiar with"
i.e. Visual Similarities.
At first when i saw the gameplay video i was so excited that Diablo II was coming out that i didn't even notice the crappy textures and the similarities with WoW. But now the more i look at it, and the more i dislike it. I have no problem with the artistic style, but on a technical note, this has got to change.
Look at the Cultist page in the Diablo3.com "world" page and tell me it doesn't look like an undead mage from WoW.
What sux is that deep down i know blizzard won't change anything drasticly. I'll probably still play the game, but it won't be what i would like from a Diablo game...
Blizzard is proud to present Diablo 3, an Isometric Hack And Slash game that we think all World of Warcraft players are familiar with, yes the team that brought you World of Warcraft is making another fantasy game. Over the coming years we plan to work hand in hand with the World of Warcraft community to shape Diablo 3 as best we can to capture that epic feeling that everybody gaws about every time they kill onyxia or Arthas in our up and coming expansion. We are quite thrilled to bestow this upon our 10 million subscribers, with it's dated graphics and copy pasted environments we believe that we can create a budget game to appeal to people with lowspec computers rigged for World of Warcraft. We hope to hear your opinions so join our Battle forums and blog it like a double fisted champ.
Well they never said that but that's the way it should have been.
I mean that isnt even a troll, it's a grievance, I mean you can't make it up, really.
I copied this from someone else, you be the judges.
Nice, finally someone found some semi decent comparison images. D3 Sadly looks pretty much like a better looking updated WoW.
Thats a horrible quote to read 11secRX7, I still have some hope though, maybe they knew if they made it look like WoW they would get the attention of that huge userbase and also stir up publicity by causing fuss and plan to later tone it down a tad?
People hoping for the perfect game whether that be Diablo or whatever are only setting themselves up for a letdown b/c it won't happen, there is no perfect game, D1 or D2 isnt perfect, although great games. Personally I want D3 to be great as well, but some people are overreacting getting bent out of shape over petty bullshit imo.

[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]Hell is an Illusion......There is only Death.
In the end,doesnt matter what any of you think,this game has already been in production for 5 years,,youve never been invited to a single meeting have you....dint think so...i followed The Lord Of the Rings Online for 5 years,i posted my opinions faithfully,gathered with the masses hoping that it would be something special...but all it turned out to be was a WOW Clone,the devs talk a good game,a lot like a football coach,but in the end they will send in their own plays and it will be what it will be...sooo relax,youve already seen the interviews where they talk about borowing things from WOW,its gonna happen,sadly,but it will happen.I think that most of the people who left Blizzard North and made Hellgate London were the ones we really needed to do this game but they are gone,so now all we have left are WOW people and new hires,i just hope that they would all revisit the original a little more,I personaly dont want an easy game,i want to be challenged and think,im 48 years old and was raised on Steve Adams Adventure Games,now,in 2008,game companys think that their entire base is kids who play WOW 16 hours a day or have to run around and blow S*** up all day to have fun,I truly hope they dont forget about the people who paid the bills before junior got addicted to WoW....ok im done venting:)
