Aug 18, 2008Just one small note, the Paladin of D2 was not a Paladin of the Hand of Zakarum. He was a Paladin for Westmarch. Although the Hand is absolutely destroyed due to the joint efforts of Mephisto and Diablo, Westmarch survived the entire ordeal of the return of the three with only a small conflict against Leoric in which Westmarch won without contest. So paladin like characters from Westmarch are still entirely plausible.Posted in: Unannounced Class
Aug 16, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "XxL2PxX" »Ugh, I was talking about the potential the Necromancer has over the Witch Docter. We all saw how much the Barbarian was revamped, and IMO the Necromancer was far more flexible in skill than the Barbarian ever was.
If they has a revamped Necromancer over the With Docter, the Necromancer will probally win by far.
As for the 'sticking to new classes' issure, blame Blizzard for kicking out Blizzard North in the first place -_-"
Trust me, I already do.
I just never could get behind the necromancer class, as far as Diablo was concerned. In other games it tends to be my first pick.
I'll admit my opinion is highly biased.
Aug 16, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "XxL2PxX" »THIS, this is where you and I differ. Lorewise and Gameplay wise the Necromancer outdates the Witch Docter by far. Trade in the Barbarian for another warrior class and swith the Witch Docter with the Necromancer IMO.
Gameplay: Witch Docter uses disease and summons unholy creatures to do his bidding. Specializes in crowd control and dps from afar. The Necromancer uses poisen and of course necromancy to do his bidding. Specializes in summons and pure dps, crowd control at a minimun (Bone Wall Bone Prison). The only promising thing about the Witch Docter is the Zombie Wall by far, a revamped Necromancer could have more of a promising effect in D3.
Lorewise: Witch Docter, an unmutated goatman that uses disease. Necromancer, a being who uses Necromancy to tip the scales between Order and Chaos to remain prefectly balanced. I don't know about you, but I rather have a World Balance Guardian than a disease-freak unmutated goatman.
Necromancer was a lame class.
Wish they had never brought back the barb and just stuck to entirely new classes. The witch docter looks a hell of a lot more fun to play than poison nova spamming.
Aug 16, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "pernunz" »You said that you hated the idea of the barbarian because it was too much like a re-hatched D2, then you criticise the new idea of health globes?
You then go on to say how it needs similar music and items as was in D2?
Make up your mind, do you want a re-done D2, or an entirely new game?
The Barbarian just feels out of place, and the reason they brought him in is flimsy at best.
If he's so integral to the story, what does that mean for the rest of the characters? Do they just get shitkicked out of the barb's spot light?
And when did the barb ever become the central hero of D2, by my play experience the most prolific character in the D2 series was the sorceress.
Aug 15, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from name="Elfen Lied" »Virtual Reality, it is becoming more and more advanced. Or for a more science fiction idea, the insertion of you into the game. Most probably by the use of some implant of connector. Being the giant needle from The Matrix, or the much less painful connector present in Ghost in the Shell.
Ghost in the Shell more like, which formed part of the basis for the Matrix. It has several characters who, while their body's exist in the real world, their minds are for lack of a better description that can be easily understood, in a dream world.
Although that dream world is actually the Net, in all it's vast and infinite glory.
But the point remains the same.
/b/ can accomplish this effect without the fancy technology.
It's like the cancer of the internet.
Aug 14, 2008You're both trying to say what his intention was, but really isn't it the editor of the screenshot who should say what his intention was? You're both making a lot of assumptions and generally trolling.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Aug 14, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "LinkX" »Well, you have to realize, the minority usually speaks for the majority. Sessler, to me at least, seems like a very intellegent person, and I highly doubt he lumped all the Diablo 3 fans that had a problem with the game thus far in one group.
Someone at G4 intelligent? I can't believe this, good sir.
Aug 13, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Karjalan" »Irony much...?
I was not aware the definition of "Gothic" was "hell"... The whole place was cheese, lava and volcanic rock everywhere? That's not Gothic... thats just the inside of a volcano... The chaos Sanctuary was Gothic, but as a whole Act 4 was just a cheesy impression of what hell might look like... if it was a volcano.
Yeah stating that solely based on the fact act 4 was in hell makes it gothic is pretty much the definition of ignorance.
Gothic horror you dumb ass.
Look it the hell up.
Aug 13, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Forty" »Veritech could you please explain to me how you could justify blizzards quality of games being "meh"..
I surely hope you are just referring to TBC and not what we have seen of D3.
Let me use an argument from the people supporting the art direction really quick: We have only seen a 20 minute video.
We don't know if D3 sucks or not.
Aug 13, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Karjalan" »I've played both... Diablo one had great atmosphere, it was scary Diablo 2 had a nice dark and gothic environment in Act1 and 3... but none really in act 2 or 4....
However by todays standards both games are hideous.
Not to be entirely over offensive. Well okay, I will be.
HOW THE HELL IS ACT 4 NOT GOTHIC? IT'S SET IN HELL FOR GOD'S SAKE, WERE YOU BORN RETARDED OR DO YOU HAVE TO WORK AT IT?
Had to put on the cruise control for how overly stupid your statement was.
Quote from "Forty" »Agreed, I bet D3 will greatly surpass our expectations about the diablo series in a positive way. Lets not forget all the changes blizzard did from D1 to D2, its evolution and gameplay was a HUGE part of diablo.
Let us also not forget that this is a different Blizzard these days. The same Blizzard that released TBC, which is regarded as one of the worst MMO expansions since ToA for DAoC.
Their quality is 'meh' right now, but I've said in a previous thread that if you somehow manage to fuck up Diablo you should probably end yourself.
Aug 12, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Shisou" »What I noticed while watching the music-and-commentary-free version of the gameplay demo (http://www.hulu.com/watch/25131/videogame-trailers-diablo-iii---gameplay-trailer-no-commentary#s-p6-st-i0) was that the game was much cooler and more Diablo-y without that crappy, unimaginative orchestra and annoying voice.
Watch that video while listening to this is the background:
Aug 12, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Shiman" »Blizzard make fantastic games, I still to this day play D2, SC1 and WC3 because they have phenomenal playability.
The graphics they have come up with are breathtaking and the physics are going to be insanely lifelike but with all blizzard games, it’s not about the graphics… it’s about the epic gameplay they always manage to create.
People who cling to the minority and take pot-shots at blizzard for their art direction obviously have not experienced the unblemished track record of blizzard games… Diablo III will be unbelievable, let Blizzard do their job...
Blizzard has a blemished track record, actually. The over all quality of TBC is a pretty good reason to worry.
Aug 12, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Murderface" »Those shoulder pads are a tad big, but they probably weigh less because they are mostly constructed of leather, and if you look underneath, fur. If you consider the ergonomics of his armor you will see that it looks as comfortable as an armor could be. "Oh, but he could get stabbed through the heart." Yes he could but that means he is willing to give up that protection for better torso flexibility. Which would make the barbarians vicious attacks even more effective with better range of motion. Can you imagine trying to WW with a giant chest plate? The higher the shoulder pads the better, they parry slashes to the head rather effectively. As for the belt, well lets just hope there is a belly flop skill.
Actually, what frightens me is not that he leaves his chest open to attack, but that his groin is open to attack.
What I know about combat knife fighting is basically applied to any other weapon as well. Aim for the head or the groin. You hit those and your target is permanently out of the fight.
He should at least wear leather pants.
