Now hear me: I don't think the graphics in D3 are bad. When I first saw them, I was impressed. It was not until later, after the shock of D3 settled down, that I began to notice ways in which they are lacking. As a 3D artist and hobby game developer, I tend to notice things like this. I am a perpetual critic. There is no game on this planet that I don't have criticisms for. That is not because I think everything sucks, but rather, because I know everything can be improved to become even better than it already is.
I don't really care that Diablo 3 has rainbows in it. I like the overall art style of D3, but I know that using normal bump maps, a standard practice, would make it look a lot better without a lot of additional effort. Flat shading just looks bad in comparison. I doubt anyone who currently likes the art style would disagree that normal bump maps would improve it dramatically, if they were to implement it and show you a comparison.
I'm not saying that my opinion is more important than other peoples, but there are a lot of fans who wanted to see a little bit darker, scarier, grittier Diablo. A lot of fans. Blizzard doesn't have to listen to those fans, but they can at least be respectful of them. This T-shirt is highly disrespectful to all the fans who showed concern with the art style. It is Blizzards way of saying, "we don't give a shit about those fans. we are gaming gods, and we don't make mistakes, so shut up and sit down and wait until the game is released."
It's this attitude that bothers me.
honestly I have no idea what you are talking about
it's those maps or whatever. I have no idea what those are, at least in this context...
as for the T... I don't think so. YES, it can be seen in that way but I think it's more of a just a joke, and you should be able to laugh at yourself first and then everybody else and admit it is a good joke
i collect random funny t-shirts for wearing at home, so i'll definitely be interested if this is included in a special edition set or something of D3. but for lone purchase, it has to come in more colors.
Im tempted to whip one up for the fanbase.. Not so hard to replicate and I doubt it's trademarked! I know plenty of places which would process the design and make the shirt purchasable. If charging nothing to myself it should be legit leaving the only costs being shipping and production costs of a yet-unnamed printing company.
