Diablo 1 and 2 are both great games.
I felt like I got much more into Diablo 2 though, because of the enhanced game mostly and more areas to explore, I got a feel for the world of Sanctuary.

Jul 1, 2008I think they way Blizz has worked out is like this.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Each person gets there own drops, the monster drops random items, but for each person seperately.
That system sounds perfect to me.
We all get our own items off the monster, completely as if single player.

Yeah as far as we know it was just to throw us off.
And an ode to an old artist I think.

Also, after reading the last comment on Diablo, I'm more convinced that it is him. 3 heads, 6 eyes, anyone see wings in the trailer? That'd be some intense evidence there.
Someone also suggested that this beast is Belial, Lord of Sin and the 3 heads are to ensure no one knows which head is lying? or something to that extent.
I'm on, :confused:
And yeah the 3 heads thing makes sense.
Jul 1, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Kwic" »I know that perfectly But i just HOPE that there will be some option to choose, that i can choose to have good graphics, and for those who have Amiga 500, well, they can play like we seen on gamplay ^^ (hehehe, i'm jokking, but the graphics are really very poor, comparing to Titan Quest which was a lot earlier with better graphics).
I want that option and i'm good
< it's some kind of joke, right?
Titan Quest had graphics NO WHERE near as good as what we have seen in D3.
They were MUCH worse.
Jul 1, 2008The game has lowish res/textures because it is meant to be played on a wide array of computes, so that millions of people can play it and not just people with good computers.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I for one will be maxing this game out like crazy and having much joy in doing so

If anyone read the Divine Comedy (Dante's Inferno) you should see the similarity immediately
Satan who is in the 9th circle of hell has 3 faces, each of a color, and each eternally chewing traitors, Judas Iscariot, Brutus and Cassius
Here is a Wikipedia entry to better explian,
Dante and Virgil, with no one to talk to, quickly move on to the center of hell. Condemned to the very center of hell for committing the ultimate sin (treachery against God) is Satan, who has three faces, one red, one black, and one a pale yellow, each having a mouth that chews on a prominent traitor. Satan himself is represented as a giant, terrifying beast, weeping tears from his six eyes, which mix with the traitors' blood sickeningly. He is waist deep in ice, and beats his six wings as if trying to escape, but the icy wind that emanates only further ensures his imprisonment (as well as that of the others in the ring). The sinners in the mouths of Satan are Brutus and Cassius in the left and right mouths, respectively, who were involved in the assassination of Julius Caesar (an act which, to Dante, represented the destruction of a unified Italy), and Judas Iscariot (the namesake of this zone) in the central, most vicious mouth, who betrayed Jesus.
Here is the wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Divine_Comedy#Ninth_Circle
Yah this was posted before and makes great sense, but even if it is diablo, he has more then one head, and in that case is also a hydra.
But yeh the 3 heads makes sense, 6 eyes, 6 wings, 666 blahblah.

Just because whatever it is has 3 heads doesn't stop it from being Diablo. However it may not be Diablo at all.
The main head may be Diablo, with the 2 remaining heads being any combination of things:
Baal + Mephisto
Azmodan + Belial (You think Diablo would go back to Hell after being betrayed by these guys and just be cool with them?)
Someone also suggested that since Diablo has died twice, the other heads may be the previous shells of Diablo.
Whatever way you look at it, this is the Hydra.
Balls n Weiners, :thumbsup:.
we still need to chill w/ ashley and cassie, rofl.
and that thing is a hydra in a sense no matter what, it has more then one head/mouths.
Jul 1, 20086-8 Months IMHO.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Seriuosly I just want a beta of sorts, even though they probably won't even have it, I guess to test servers they will have too.
Diablofans.com should get betas
I would **** Myself and play 10 hours + a day and report whole pages of ideas/bugs every week.

Jul 1, 2008The WoW inventory system IMO is just fine, this will be good for Diablo, more items for MF/storing!Posted in: News
FTW! I am glad they are doing this, Item collection is a very fun part of Diablo, and in D3 we shouldn't need multiple characters just to act as Mules
I remember having 2 or 3 mule characters full of items because of MF runs all day w/ My Sorc, I wish we could store them all on one person!? I mean we should be able to pay IN GAME GOLD to get more storage eh? At high levels storage should be close to unlimited IMO, if you pay in game gold for it
Jun 30, 2008I'm still crossing fingers for Xmas, and definitely crossing them for beta but that probably won't happen.Posted in: News
I would say the place to go for beta though would be this fan site, considering we are even listed on there Diablo3.com and they got the URL from this site.
So hopefully us good people at this site get in on some of that, hopefully all of us but who knows
Jun 30, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "Asynchronic" »They said only 5 classes, two of which we know are the witch doctor and the barbarian. My guesses for the other three are: Amazon/rogue (need some who uses bows), Druid (witch doctor seems very close to necromancer), sorcerer/ess (who else uses all the magic?)
They say in another interview though that they do not know exactly how many classes their will be.
So their could be more then 5 most likely.
Jun 30, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "Asynchronic" »Release Date: It seems they've been working on this for a long time now. How long did D2 take to make?
I'm also not 100% sure on that, we can't compare this to D2 in terms of how long they take to make.
But we can check how long after announcement D2 was released, that has more relevance.
Jun 30, 2008I have money saved for Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, Blizzcon, and perhaps the Comiccon.Posted in: News
I want Blizzcon badly because I live 40 minutes from LA where it is being hosted, I think it is 100-150$? I will go for sure with some friends, they will surely have new Diablo info/ maybe a playable build or beta keys??
Jun 30, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "Sinke" »xmass this year of first two months of 2009. for sure...
from the looks of the gameplay video i dont think we will wait 2 years for release.
ok, there is much work to be done, but i must agree micahmatthew here.
D3 was worked on for quite some time... and they did an amazing job of keeping it under the carpet.
did you notice that there was no bigger leaked rumors about D3? only a news bulletin on official blizz page that they are hiring new developers.
so i think they workd on it in the dark, down in the basement for quite some time now...
Thanks for the agreement.
And it has been worked on for 4+ years according to the Dev's that had the question asked in the Dev panel yesterday. Search Diablo 3 Dev Panel on youtube if you didn't see them, there are links to it somewhere on here also.
Jun 30, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "sonicpld" »silver_wings ...
you are pointless - this had nothing to do with Diablo. ..
StarCraft2 is just some weeks old as presentation ...
so ... Diablo wont be so late ...
And blizzard never make a full cinematic on game that is far from release , becouse if they did - the cinematics could be far different from the game as finall state.
As i said - i think that will reveal one character every month ... or 2 characters on 2 months ... or so ... but game is here ... count it on !
Diablo3 has been in the works for longer then SC2 so why wouldn't it come out around the same time!?
I am with you on this sonic.
Christmas for sure, I will be talking to some friends and seeing what they think / if they can find anything out from... people.
Jun 30, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "joecatty" »micah can you link the gamespot infos?
Here you go
Jun 30, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "Wojput" »What u say seems logical, but what i conclude from WWI Panels is that thay don't have much info to really share with us. See - if they were to release it that soon, why wouldn't they give us more info? For me it seems, like they really got what they've shown, or just a little more...
They have held back so much information it is ridiculous, you apparently haven't been very in to this whole thing.
In the review with Gamespot they say that ALL classes are already playable back at the office but they aren't releasing information yet. Also ACT 1 is already playable also. Multiplayer also working. They are very far along in development and just adding new content to polish it off.
They don't give us info because they are BLIZZARD. Were you here for the Teasers? We haven't so much as seen a screenshot of Diablo 3 untill 2 days ago on the ANNOUNCEMENT and it has been in the works for 4+ years according to the dev's who said so at the Panel yesterday.
They don't give us info in order to fuel the hype and make it more fun when we actually do get the game. If we don't know the story we HAVE TO BUY IT to learn it.
In my opinion.... Christmas, they wouldn't let the hype get this high and then wait as long as a year to release it, they'd have lost a ton of the hype by then, they could finish by Christmas.
Jun 28, 2008Downloads available so that people who lost there copy's or want to play it now before D3 can get a little D2 action. Maybe they will drop the price? I would think they might?Posted in: News
$20 for D2 + LOD would be great for Download.
Jun 28, 2008The game seems more similar to Titans Quest graphically then it does to WoW. It is not very cartoony, it is just simple textures and polygons so the system requirements aren't high. They know the game will sell millions of copy's and low/mid range system requirements help sell the game. It becomes more accessible, look at any of Blizzards other games, accessibility and simplicity in graphics balanced with amazingness is how they do it.Posted in: News
I am liking the style of the graphics very much, a little darker atmosphere might be better, but heck I will settle with what they have now if I have too. And remember it is in alpha I think? So everything is subject to changes and enhancements.
