its obvious to me that the new barbarian is alot better, there is a diference of more than 8 years afterall
waht bugs me is blizzard "strong sillhouets" philosophy if this means shoulderpads that protect not just your shoulders but your head and arms with the cost of being HUGE (cartoonish)
hunter wolf, i was eagerly waitng for your reply to my postcan you tell me why you are not responding?
Parkinsons disease!!! i was trying to remeber that name
i dunno, he looks weaker than the the necor did back then, but that may be just me
when people said the characters had wow influence it was after seeing what they have done with the big shoulder pads and helmets
that barb up there is awsome imo, im not so very happy with the wd thou. he looks so physically weak, i dont like hes pose , dunno
Hunter-Wolf, I would take your argument apart bit-by-bit if it weren't written so awfully and full to the brim with immature insults. Seriously, moderators, where are you? Hunter-Wolf has single-handedly ruined this entire thread with his gigantic, puzzle of a post, and not only that, he's hurling insults at us by the bucket-load. Please, sort him out.
Actually Diablo 3 looks much more interesting that this, the slightly stylized look sets it apart from all the other generic 3D hack & slash that all look the same, they also should never use bump-maps and realistic reflection, first because of how taxing this will make the game, and second because it adds to the realistic, boring, uninteresting look and feeling, stylized look is much more interesting and engagning.
and for the most part of your last big post and no this one, its clearly all about YOUR opinion, and i will respect
i for instance and many other think improvements on graphics are improvment overall, and they can be turned off you dislike
damn, its hard to qoute and reply to hunter wolfs post
as for blizzard knowing waht they are doing and our "whining" being imature...
we all have been waiting long for diablo 3, and im very happy for its announcment, but i am part of the audience, it is WE who gives money for their work, without us, blizzard would be absolutely nothing, as every other commercial company. And you say we know nothing about what we WANT? you say constructive critism is immaturity? they have the choice to not hear us, but our satisfaction is their guarantee of money, if a considerable number of people are complaining about one thing, i think thats a sing something is wrong
now, im propably going to buy D3 (though i felt the same for UT3) but we have the gift of communication for christ sake, COMMUNICATION. If they are going to have my money, i want to every single cent to worth it
We are just expressing our opinion for our own satisfaction, other people have all the right to disagree
the same thing happened to SC2 and the graphics/art improvement are obvious, how can you denie that?
and admit it calling everyone 15 years old suicidal emo girl is NOT imaturity? im expecting you to be more respectful form now on and to be sorry for that
Just to make a note, I feel Diablo got the best shake and the most love with the translation to 3d.
Just to clear another thing up. Every piece of armor will have its own modeled appearance. It won't just be Light - Medium - Heavy like in the past two games.
just wondering what do you mean by saying it wont just be light medium heavy?
i know the armor in diablo 2 were categorized as that, but that 100% irrelevant anyway........
i've just heard that they are making Starcraft II looking also very colorful and WoW like...
Why so much influence from WoW. If I like the WoW interface, i'm going to play WoW not Diablo
you got it wrong.
they WERE doing sc2 all bright and clean, the fans disliked, voiced their opinion
and now blizz is improving the graphics, and im really impressed with the result
if only i had the links to the images comparision
to my view, the textures are soft to a level that i would rather call them paint work
the huge size of the soulder pads wont change over the course of the game, they tend to actually get bigger lol
to me those open dungeons, that look like rooftops like someonelse said, just dont seem right, i liked the contrast between teh open surface areas and the clastrophobic dungeons
imo, those green and blue lights on teh dungeon are the second best (after shoulder pads bigger than teh head) example of heavy cartoonish feel
i feel like compiling all the screenshot caomparision posted so far in one page or something, including the amazing makeover blizzard did with SC2 graphic (alot less bright, cartoon textures) after the fans expressed their opinion just like we are doing now
and adding even that image on fuzz signature
