No, it probably isn't Belial or Azmodan, especially since the guy to the right resembles mephisto (lanky, boney, tall) and the one on the left looks very similar to the discriptions of Baal from the original Diablo 1 manual (there was no actual detailed discription, though they did give you some sort of idea of what he was like)
The strange thing is, the one three-headed Demon in the trailer for some reason says to me "that's Belial." I have no idea why but I feel like I've seen that image before from somewhere...not the exact one from the trailer of course, but that depiction of Belial being a firey balroog-like demon with 3 heads.
I'll have to look into it...it's been bothering me for a while now

Jul 13, 2008The instant I saw the gameplay trailer, I thought "Great, Blizzard copied God of War..."Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
In all honesty, if I wanna play God of War, I'll go play God of War. I don't want to pick up Diablo 3 and say "Wow! This is awesome! Playing a Barb is just like playing as Kratos!" I should be able to pick up Diablo 3 and say "Now THIS is Diablo!" not " Hmmm...Diablo and a Kratos look-a-like 3 huh?"
I know it isn't easy to re-invent the wheel, which is basically what Blizzard is trying to do with Diablo 3. However, the more I look at Diablo 3, the more I am sickened by the fact that Blizzard is basically ignoring what made Diablo 1 a great game (Diablo 2 was NOT a great game, it was mearly a good game). I'm all for color, flair, and rainbows are a natural occurance in the world and as strange as it sounds, belongs in Diablo. Only deal is Blizzard should make a Barb play like a Barb. Look at Kratos and see what makes a successful muscle-bound behemoth and then use that as a standard and exceed it.
In my opinion, the Barb is just a poor copy of Kratos with whirlwind at this point in the game. Will I enjoy playing as a Barb? Probably. Will I give them style points? Aboslutely not.
Blizzard Irvine completely ripped WoW from EQ and I won't be suprised at all if they rip many other games besides God of War in order to make Diablo 3. Condor (Blizzard North) was innovative and original, Blizzard Irvine is testing my patience with their lack of creativity and originality.
Jul 5, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Cocobuffs" »Sorry, I don't have proof of this. However I am certain they have removed it. If they went as far as to make icon-inventory, I won't be surprised if they have implemented the automatic stat point distribution in WoW. I'll remove that part from my post, since I made it seem like fact, sorry!
eeeh I seriously doubt they would do that. The stat page is THE heart of Diablo. If you screw up with your stats, you're done, kiss that character goodbye cuz you'll never solo Diablo. At least that's the way it was with Diablo 1. Diablo 2 is far more forgiving for poor stat placement thanks to the skills. If blizzard had even an abby-normal brain, they'd realize it would be stupid to have auto-stats in Diablo 3 like in WoW
Jul 5, 2008lol i've been lucky enough to find 2 SOJ's and about 5 million useless 25 naggles...lol whenever I find a unique ring i always run up to Cain and say, "Gimme that 25 naggle, thank you"Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
*sigh*....damn 25 naggles...
Jul 4, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "XzaLLeNT" »people just assume that the ones that ruin the game, are "kids", because realistically speaking... theyre kids. kids are stereotyped to be immature, annoying, dumb, and lacks common sense. thats what everybody else in the world view u as, its the circle of life. but ofcourse, not all of kids are like that.
but i gotta say, adults can also be retarded assholes when playing games. they think that just because they are older and can boss people around, they dont notice that theyre stooping down to their levels, the immature, annoying, dumb, no common sense level.
so if youre one of those dumbass "adults" keep acting like retarded faggots just because they are "older", shut the fuck up and look at ur fugly ass self in the mirror first before u shoo kids away who are just trying to have a good time playing a damn game.
and im 17 bitch...
For the record, if you want to be taken seriously in any sort of argument, refrain from insulting the other party as well as cursing. And yes, it was very apparent by the time I read your second paragraph that you were a teenager.
So you know, cursing up a storm doesn't get your point across any better. If anything, it alienates your reader.
Jul 4, 2008samayel is correct. I've been playing video games for what feels like ages. I've played everything from the oldest multiplayers of yester year to the most cutting edge multiplayer games of today. In my experience, assholes know no age group. Yes, I can easily spot an immature player, though it isn't always a "kid" who is the one being immature. There are a lot of adults out there who are adults in age only. And then there are a lot of kids out there that are kids in age only. I've been friends with 14 year olds in my old clans and I've even had the strange experience of having a 16 year old be my clan leader (granted I was the leutenant and helped him a lot but it was a good learning experience for both of us). And also I've been involved with adult-only groups, though more often then not, those old fucks (as George Carlin would say) are too dry for a goofy guy like me and I end up yerning for the spontenuity and humor that the younger demographic brings to the table.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Really, you're going to run into an asshole no matter what game you play, even if it's WoW, Diablo 2, SC, CoD4, ET:QWs, Crysis, what have you. Does it get annoying to hear kids yammer on in a game's built in VOIP? Yes it gets very annoying having to hear 500 "your mom" comments and such but then you can always say "Alright boys, that's quite enough, could you cut it out?" and if not, there is almost always a miraculous "mute player" button in most games.
If you can't stand playing in a multi-cultural, multi-age, multi-ethnic game then you have no business being on the internet at all.
Jul 4, 2008I'm tired of people criticizing others for voicing their opinion. An extremely few people around here know how to carry on a conversation without saying "You're an idiot for saying that Diablo 3 doesn't look dark enough" or saying that them expressing their thoughts, ideas, and opinions is nothing more than "bitching."Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Everyone has their opinion, no matter how overstated it is and you have the amazing ability of not having to read it if you don't want to.
Jul 3, 2008Actually, children cannot do anything legally like that unless their legal guardian represents them in a United States court. Children do not hold any legal rights under the US Constitution and therefore unless your legal guardian represents your wishes in a case, you cannot do anything and you will be ignored.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
It's a sad truth (to a degree) but that's why it's an Adult's world and not a Child's. You'll get your chance once you turn 18.
for the record, I dont care who gets to play the game. You could be an infant and play the game for all I care. It's your decision not mine and your money as well. I can deal with assholes in a game and assholes know no age group
Jul 3, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "NeciFiX" »I use a Pentium 4, ATI Radeon x1650, 3 GB of RAM. 2.8 GHz Processor, Hyperthreading. 400 W Power Supply. Won't be able to run D3. My family is so fuckin poor and we're probably going to lose our house, we don't have money like you rich spoiled kids or lucky adults to blow on computer parts. Only AGP system for me, lol. I won't be able to run D3 but I'll be able to run SC2.
no, you'll run Diablo 3 just fine. The old x1650 will get the job done. You wont be able to play anything at 1900x1600 but with a normal sized monitor, you'll run it fine. And honestly, if you think SC2 will run fine on it, so should Diablo 3.
And don't bash us adults. I work hard for what I have and there's no luck involved, just hard work. And really, if your parents are going to lose your home then I think you have more to worry about than whether a video game will work on your PC

Nvidia GeForce FX 5900 Ultra 256 mb
eeeew....FX 5900...the old blowdryer...that means you've got either an AGP x4 or x8 (hopefully the x8). I would say your best bet is to track down a decent Geforce 7 series AGP card or a Radeon X1K series AGP card. You can also go for a Geforce 6 series AGP, but id say if you went 6 series, only go for a 6800, the 6600 wouldn't be that much faster than the 5900. Just go to google and start searching or go on ebay and someone's bound to be selling a used one.
Other than that, the old P4 should handle the job fine enough

This computer is extremely basic when compared to "uber" gaming machines. I built it for only around 1000-1200 dollars and it can and does run anything and everything at Max settings. However, you can go much cheaper and still be able to get very similar performance. You really don't need a Quad core right now (unless you do video editing like I do or other extremely taxing applications like CAD). You can get a much cheaper Dual core from Intel (or AMD if you prefer them, though they are slower). You can also go with less ram and smaller hard drive. And really, from looking at the gameplay trailer, even with changes in the way the graphics look, I'm still more than confident that a more budget graphics card could run it. With the new ATi 4850 coming with it's unbelievably cheap price and extreme performance, it would be the perfect addition to any budget PC.
I would say if you pinch your pennys right, you can build or upgrade your PC to run Diablo 3 just fine. Even if all you have is a crappy little dell, just slap a Geforce 9600 in there an it'll do just fine.
Jul 3, 2008Varth posted a message on Blizzard needs to implement at least a BoE or BoP system (Bind on Equip or Pick-up).no, we dont need any bind on equip or bind on pickup. Nor do we need item rolls. What needs to be done is duping needs to be made impossible. For Diablo 1, it was a stupid glitch. For Diablo 2, it was a server exploit. If Blizzard has learned from the experience of Diablo 2, they will make it exceedingly hard for someone to exploit the game like that.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
If you want a more stable game economy, then blizzard needs to give Gold some more importance than gambling and repairng gear.
As for 40 sojs for an .08 Windforce, I've never heard of an .08 Windforce going for that price...though you do hear stupid high prices for Impshenks. Droprates on the items you've said are REDICULIOUSLY low. I've played this game for 8 years and I've never MF'd a windforce or a grandfather sword. Even when I screwed around and hacked an open b.net character to have stupid high MF (over a million), it wouldn't drop. Items like Windforces are extremely rare and even having the highest MF possible, its still a very low % drop. And runes are completely random drops. You can't blame the drop and equip system for rediculious prices. Blame people for being greedy with their items. Hell, did you even consider with a bind on equip system that item prices wont get even worse? The reason the prices are so high for this ladder season is because there aren't enough items out there and the "smart" assholes know that and are charging stupid high prices for items that are normally vender trash.
A Bind on Equip won't solve anything and a Bind on Pickup ruins the usefulness of those items. After all, what good is it if a Barb picks up a BoP item that is Witchdoctor only? Well now his only option is to dump it for useless gold (though I'm more than certain blizzard will fix the uselessness of gold)
Leave this to Blizzard. They'll get it right without having to resort to WoW or Everquest for their answers.
Jul 3, 2008lol I'll still like Diablo 1 over Diablo 2 to me, Diablo 2 was cartoony when compared to Diablo 1. In fact, i never truely liked the D2 graphics that much. I always felt it wasn't as polished as Diablo 1 and I felt that it didn't live up to the legacy of Diablo 1. Not to mention the dungeons weren't nearly as cool as the D1 dungeons. I did like the landscapes, although it was like 80% landscape and 20% dungeon in that game (and that 20% is forced upon you. I rarely go into any of the non-essential dungeons unless I feel like MFing there). It's hard to be a dungeon crawler when you're outside all the time. That is my opinion of Diablo 2.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Now, I'm going to have to wait for Diablo 3 to actually come out before I can give my full thoughts on it and in my opinion, it's already surpassed Diablo 2 as far as graphics styling goes. There is plenty of work left to be done on the game and I really do hope that it can live up to it's moniker. For me, Diablo 3 isn't attempting to succeed Diablo 2 but instead the real Diablo, Diablo 1. And there's plenty of room in those shoes still cuz D2 didn't fill them in my opinion.
lol go ahead and flame me, d2 n00bs Go check which one has the highest rating, Diablo 1 or Diablo 2 and you'll see Diablo 1 is the higher rated by game review sites and is still one of the highest rated PC games of all time.

Jan 31, 2009Varth posted a message on Care For Some Marshmallow With Your Thousand Pounder?roflmao...I'm totally for a Secret Stay Puft Marshmellow LevelPosted in: News
All I gotta say is...DON'T CROSS THE BEAMS!!!
Oct 12, 2008Although I'm scathing mad about the new developments I'm hearing about other aspects of this game, I will say I do like the look of "The Wizard."Posted in: News
The name kind of makes you cringe, much like "The Witch Doctor" but as I can now see, Blizzard is pretty much beating multiple dead horses because they're running low on creative ideas
The class looks like an overall improvement over the classic Sorc. I do really like the animation for teleport and the renamed chain lightning. I really like that lightning actually fires like lightning should in that it is very fast moving unlike it was in Diablo 2.
It looks like the Wizard will be a decent class. Hopefully Blizzard can be a wee bit more creative when they announce the Archer/Spear class, and the replacement Paladin class.
Honestly though, "All new classes" doesn't mean you take a preexisting class, rename it, and give it a few new spells to make it "new"
Oct 12, 2008wow...blizzard I congratulate you on taking a great game franchise and now completely sending it down the shit-hole.Posted in: News
I've warmed up to the art direction for the game
I've gone from against your stupid health orbs to be indifferent to them
I've praised you for for the conceptual art, the death animations, the named monsters, the destructable backgrounds, the regular monsters, as well as other areas of the new game
I was gladdened to hear you were looking into improving the inventory system including the stash
I was instantly against the idea of checkpoints and the exclusion of the classic Town Portal
I was initially skeptical about the sudden overblown aspect of skills and their seeming necessity to be absolutely overpowered in order to hold our attention
and now I have you guys go and COMPLETELY turn D3 from a PC title that would help reinvent PC Platform gaming into a piece of shit console port by eliminating the last dregs of RPG element: the stat line. Strength, Dex, Vitality, Energy being completely controllable by the user is an absolute must in a true RPG. This isn't a freaking MMO where everything has to be balanced to a T (which Blizzard failed and continues to fail to do in WoW). If anything, all this does is completely eliminate what made Diablo so good: being able to go and create your own unique build on character classes.
Now every character is going to be the same with a bunch of bullshit overpowered spells because you seem to think we're a bunch of ADD ridden kids who can't be pleased unless we are on the very edge of having a built in God Mode. Why don't you just eliminate dieing as well? That way I can just plow though the game using flashing ADD button mash spells in just a couple of hours
I said months ago: to get Diablo 3 right, they need to make the Stats worth something so then people can do more than put max stats to Vit like in Diablo 2 and make it more like Diablo 1 where stats actually meant something. What I meant by this was PUT SOME FUCKING EFFORT INTO THE GODDAMNED GAME MECHANICS AND NOT COP OUT AND MAKE EVERYTHING AUTOMATIC!!!!! ACTUALLY FIX THE GODDAMN PROBLEM INSTEAD OF PUT A PATCH OVER IT!!!
I thought I would have purchased Diablo 3 no matter what Blizzard managed to do to screw it up but I didn't anticipate that Blizzard would be so fucking mindless as to automate the majority of the game including the character building aspect just to appease the people who can't sit down and take the time to plan out their own stat points. Whoopteedo, I get to choose between putting a point between Spell A and Spell B both of which are equally powerful and do relitively the same thing.
Oh I'm sure the Demo was fun enough to play for a while until a Blizzard rep jabbed you in the kidneys and said, "Back of the line buddy." However from what I've read so far of Diablo 3, it's going the opposite direction of what I want it to be. Yes, I'll be so arrogant as to say I want it a certain way. *Humph* I guess I was right years ago before I ever had a clue D3 was even being made when I said the only way a new Diablo is going to be made is if I do it myself. Well, with the way this game is progressing, it's going to be Diablo 3 in name only.
Unless something happens to change my mind, I'm probably not going to buy this game. As a note, I would have previously bought this game no matter what state of suckage it was in...until I realized there is a certain level of suckage that even I cannot ignore no matter how much I want a Diablo 3
Diablo 1: absolute perfect classic
Diablo 2: a decent game that pails in comparison to the original
Diablo 3: off to a horrendious start...
Aug 7, 2008I actually don't want a Secret Cow level. Why? Because I want Blizzard to be original for once. They haven't had an original idea since SC (you can't count D2 cuz it's a sequel and WoW is everything but original). "Secret Cow Level." Been there, done that, abused it to no end. I'd like to see something else better that is secret and hard to find not to mention, as the guy said in the interview, something that you can't abuse like the Cow Level was (why even call it secret anymore?). And besides, the Secret Cow Level was a joke from the original Diablo and it's lost meaning cuz there's people today who play Diablo 2 and have never even picked up Diablo 1 and even then, they wouldn't be privy to the "inside joke."Posted in: News
So long as there's no Secret Cow level and for damned sure no Secret Murloc Level, I'll be a happy man (though that doesn't mean I don't want something secret in the game for some comedy relief) Maybe a Secret Zergling Level? ROFLMAO! Or better yet, a secret level completely populated by those exploding suicide guys from Act 5 or something stupid like that.
But please, no re-hashed old ideas....be original Blizzard...
Jul 2, 2008they're doing the same thing in the US, which I also find surprising. I'm interested in the Collector's Edition but no word on that yet. I'd be more than willing to pay extra for the Collector's Edition of Diablo 3. The concept art alone would be worth it.Posted in: News
