Realistically I expect Christmas next year as the release date. Great to see it finally confirmed have been waiting for this one for ages. The game play demo looks really promising and it still has that Diablo feel to it as well which is good to see.
I was here just 20 minutes after the announcement this morning. hallelujah. We've waited and waited, now we know for sure. I can deal with that. Now it's development time. What I can't deal with are people complaining about the first initial gameplay video. We wanted overhead view with 3d graphics. And now we learn that is exactly what blizzard is going to give us. Why the bitching? What is wrong with you people? WoW? It looks nothing like it. It looks like a 3d rendering of the overhead view we know and love. Of course the graphics aren't as gritty, hello they are 3d textures instead of software drawn sprites. Of course there will be roundedness to them. But look at how lively the environment is. The torches, the flowing water, the rats, the billowing of curtains when the barbarian swings his axe, the demons crawling up the side of the bridge. The HUGE structures, the giant chandeliers with burning candles that glide by as you progress. It's everything we all wanted and more. Blizzard applied a delicate touch to Diablo and afaic, came up with a winner. Not too much, not too little. Just right. And why the hatred for WoW anyway. We think we've waited a long time. I bet a lot of WoW players are the same guys that paid for BBS games like MajorMUD. If anything, Wow isn't an mmorpg, it's a GMUD, graphical multi user dungeon, and those guys have been waiting longer than we have for a new game
Yea I personally love what I see. Sure it might not be immediately like Hell as some of you seem to have expected, but go back to act 1 and 2 of D2 and you won't see darkness, you will see areas of darkness sure, but its not like when your outside walking around the place seems terribly evil. I'm sure the later acts will be much darker and drearier, evil has been gone for 20 years, things are kinda normal in Sanctuary but they are sure to change. I see a very detailed and good looking environment, whether or not its dark and evil doesn't matter, it is the beginning of the game. It will get very, very evil and with that in mind, go look at those videos again and just look at the detail and be happy that this game looks like its going to be sick. Its not like WoW, so don't bother with the trolls who say it is. I've played WoW for almost a year now and I can't tell you how sick of that game I am. Thank god this game is coming, even if its gonna be a while. Just be happy that it is and don't be so goddamn critical of something that we all know looks great.
Sigh. Ok. Its completly new art style. It doesn't look anything like WoW. Happy now Hitler? Now my opinion is the same!
Enjoy your fantasy world. I guess I shouldnt have expected intelligent conversation from "Diablo Fans", this site should be renamed "Diablo Fanatics" because it fits the user base a hellve a lot better.
People like you bring shame to this forum, and i wouldn't be suprised if the link to this forum is removed from the diablo homepage.
Enjoy living in your dream world.
Your remarks are like rat droppings in a catacomb and you should quit standing in that corner with urine dribbling down your leg and find your way back to WOW where the little ones belong.......:D
I always thought it would be cool if there were Water Earth & Fire golems instead of crappy Mud-shit Iron-crap Blood & Fire
Druid - who will replace him? Some dude who controls forces of nature? Or possibly a werewolf character?
A Vampire character?
We can only guess but looks like "remastered" necromancer aka witch doctor looks awesome...
Admittedly graphics look shit - I like how the environment looks and how monsters fall off the edges but the characters and monsters looks shabby - also this little health line is rubbish I liked how you pointed a monster and had his name and highlighted in red (which represented his life)
But hey they've introduced adventures - looks like - there will be more interesting quests other than just killing mobs upon mobs...
First impression 9/10 :thumbsup: and that's just early development and knowing fuck all about the game!
Anyone who didn't watch the panel - really shouldn't bother to comment - because you've seen fuck all in the trailers...
as to people saying some stuff is ripped off from WOW
FUCKERS!!! - wow ripped off the whole Diablo concept and made it 3d and first person
WoW tried to rip off Diablo but they couldn't do it cause
NOTHING COMPARES TO DIABLO IT IS THE UNIVERSE
ALL OTHER GAMES MUST BOW BEFORE THE MIGHTY DIABLO ...THE BEST GAME EVER MADE..............PERIOD
1 11 or 111 makes no difference they pwn everything else
Except Diablo series wants no credit for WoW a game for children who wet their pants alot:D
Heres a little taste of your great rebutals. Thanks for "informing" me mario!!
Its a little late to act civilised you immature ponce. Great conversation skills, lets hope this is not how you speak to people in the real world.
Hey bedwetter you should not have any type of name that has Diablo in it when your really a WoW baby. Go back to that Mario World MMO that is like the Sims on steriods and forget you ever were in the hallowed halls of where the real gamers are here in Diablofans.com We know that you use the bathroom to relieve yourself not your pants...:rolleyes:
